Seventy-three Georgia Counties Named Camera Ready Communities

Seventy-three GA Counties Named Camera Ready Communities

ATLANTA- Governor Nathan Deal and the Georgia Film, Music & Digital Entertainment Office, a division of the Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD), designated 73 Georgia counties Camera Ready at the Georgia State Capitol today. The state’s Camera Ready Community Program was launched as part of the state’s ongoing efforts to bolster Georgia ‘s growing film and television industry.

“We have experienced a significant increase in jobs, investment, infrastructure and film induced tourism, making Georgia ‘s entertainment industries among the state’s fastest growing sectors,” said GDEcD commissioner Chris Cummiskey. “The statewide response has been tremendous from Georgia counties that want to become Camera Ready in order to help bring jobs and investments to their local communities.”

Camera Ready is a designation put in place by the state to offer film and television production companies easier, faster and better access to local resources and information. A Camera Ready Community must designate a liaison who can assist film and television production companies on a local level. The first 16 Georgia counties were designated Camera Ready at EUE/Screen Gems Studio in Atlanta on October 7, 2010.

Script Analysis Class w/ Ashley LeConte Campbell

Script Analysis Workshop for Film and TV

Saturday, April 2 / 10a-5p / $100 / Atlanta

This workshop answers the question – “What are the things should I do when I get my sides/script?”….since we all know that memorizing our lines is NOT the answer! Our February workshop filled up quickly, so we are offering a second workshop in April!

This class is for seasoned actors who have been looking for a new class to help them continue to progress and stay sharp — and for newer actors who are still getting a foundation.

In this 7 hour workshop we will:
– Breakdown sides from Film/TV projects that have been shooting here in the South
– Review the elements of creating your character from clues in the script (objective, obstacles, environment, history, etc)
– Watch short video clips of LA casting directors/actors/coaches reiterating these exact techniques for creating a character and booking larger roles
– Participate in exercises throughout the day that put to use the things we are learning as the day progresses

The workshop’s host, Ashley LeConte Campbell, is an Atlanta actress who is currently training with Los Angeles acting coach Crystal Carson. Actors who have studied with Margie Haber, Crystal Carson, Ivana Chubbuck, or Larry Moss will recognize familiar themes.  This workshop has been put together from notes taken from these coaches’ classes, videos, books, etc., (and are not just Ashley’s personal opinions!), so it teaches many of the elements of creating characters that Los Angeles directors/producers expect to see in an actor’s audition and performance.

To register: Send payment via to the email address campbal at charter dot net (spelled out to prevent phishing) to reserve your spot. An email will be sent to you confirming that your spot in the workshop is saved. Location: Creative Studios, 500 Bishop St., NW, Atlanta, 30318. We will break for 1 hour for lunch. For ages 15 and older.

(We plan to take this workshop to other Southeastern cities outside the Atlanta area, too! If you have an interest in our coming to your city, please contact us at the email address above.)
