Major Locations for Film & TV

Atlanta and Gwinnett County are already major locations for film and television filming and production. Norcross is located in close proximity to Atlanta Filmworks Studio and Eagle Rock Studio (that includes nearly 500,000 SF of production and filming space and is the largest such facility under one roof in the US). In addition to attracting more filming in Norcross, the city has an opportunity to provide a range of ancillary support services to the sector – including repairs and rental, short-term office and storage space, and more.
