Why Film in Elbert County/Georgia?

Film Incentives

Elbert County has received its Camera Ready designation from the Georgia Department of Economic Development. What this means to you is that we are trained to work with production companies to provide one-on-one local assistance. In addition, we know the perfect location for your shoot, and can provide help and insight when it come to film permits, lodging, etc.

Television and film companies may receive a tax credit of up to 30% of money spent on production and post-production. Minimum spending is $500,000.

Through the Georgia Entertainment Industry Investment Act, Georgia provides a 20% tax credit, with the State providing the other 10%. Little or no tax liability for your company? Transfer your tax credits.

According to Broderick Johnson, producer of The Blind Side, through the Georgia Department of Economic Development, “…Georgia’s tax break is one of the best, if not the best in the country.”
