The facility includes two furnished production offices and four 30,000 sq. ft. stages, including 20,000 sq. ft. clear span, each with silent air conditioning and 4,000 amps. There are 50 loading docks surrounding the facility providing easy access to 100,000 sq. ft. of storage and 40,000 sq. ft. of supporting areas including shops, holding and catering areas.
Recently, Eagle Rock Studios Atlanta joined five other Georgia-based film studios to form the Georgia Studio & Infrastructure Alliance (GSIA), a new film and television studio and infrastructure association. The group hopes to serve as advocates for the education of crew members and the development of talent needed to keep clients returning to Georgia.
Georgia ranks third in the U.S. for feature film production. The film and television industry in Georgia directly employs 23,500 people, with nearly 8,200 production-related employees. The state reports the film industry had a $5.1 billion economic impact during the 2014 fiscal year.
