Craig Miller, executive producer of Craig Miller Productions in Atlanta, has been named by Governor Nation Deal to chair the newly formed Georgia Film, Music and Digital Entertainment Advisory Commission.
The advisory commission’s mission is to work with the Georgia Department of Economic Development in attracting production to Georgia and supporting other industries associated with entertainment.
Miller is a respected filmmaker and founder of Craig Miller Productions, creating award-winning projects for an extensive list of Fortune 500 clientele and advertising agencies for 30 years. He is also the current co-president for the Georgia Production Partnership (GPP), the grass-roots organization chiefly responsible for establishing and maintaining Georgia’s Film Incentive.
As chair of the advisory commission, Miller will utilize his vast knowledge of Georgia’s booming entertainment industry and tax incentives to work alongside other experienced advisory board members to help strengthen and continue to grow production in the state of Georgia.
“We are entering a Golden Age of production in Georgia.” Miller said. “The film, music and gaming industries have a significant economic impact in Georgia and continues to provide business opportunities statewide. We have shown that Georgia is the place to be to make films. Now let’s ensure we maintain a strong camera-ready workforce throughout the state and provide information about the vast locations we have available to continue to attract filmmakers and investors to Georgia.”
According to Gov. Deal’s office, Georgia filmmaking had an economic impact of over $6 billion during fiscal year 2015 (July 1, 2014-June 30, 2015).
