Film Tourism can drive significant business growth and increase revenue for companies who cater to the industry. Film Clayton provides information to local businesses and property owners on what to expect before, during, and after on-location shooting, and how to meet the rigorous demands of this demanding yet rewarding and exciting business.
As one of the nation’s top five film production destinations, Georgia doubles as numerous fictional locations that make movie magic come to life. In 2012, the Georgia Department of Economic Development reports that 333 productions took place throughout the state, including the second installment of The Hunger Games series, Catching Fire.
The film’s production provided Clayton County, Georgia, with the “gift that keeps on giving,” as “hungry” fans descend upon the area to visit the site where scenes were filmed and to explore other amenities and products our locale has to offer. Filmmakers from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire spent weeks at Clayton County International Park, transforming the site to accommodate one of the film’s most iconic features, the Cornucopia. Clayton County is one of a lucky few, and is a grateful beneficiary of this gift the film industry leaves behind.
