Atlanta kid actor Owen Vaccaro to appear in Will Ferrell-Mark Wahlberg';s “Daddy’s Home”. He became interested in acting after performing in a play in the first grade, and started pursuing it with the help of an agent. After landing roles in indies “The Product  of Me” and “Rom,” he’s acting in the feature film “Daddy’s Home,” a great accomplishment! The movie, which filmed this past winter in Louisiana, is about the hijinks that can ensue when grown-ups get divorced and remarried. Owen Vaccaro, Atlanta local kid movie star, plays one of the kids caught up in the middle. Asked what was most important on the set, he replied 'Good catering!'

Seen Lately Around The New Hollywood

“Survivor’s Remorse” (SRS2), on Starz, is currently shooting its second season. Featuring Jessie Usher as a professional basketball player dealing with the money, fame, and power  after making it big, the show takes place primarily in Atlanta. Crews were spotted in Marietta at Brunswick Bowling on March 24, Paces Ferry Road on March 26, and downtown on April 6. On April 10, the show also took over Buckhead Nails & Spa Pedicure in Brookhaven. Their basecamp for that shoot was spotted at Windsor Parkway and Hillview Avenue.

The third installment of the American “The Ring” series, “Rings” (O), has been active this month. For most of late March, “Rings” set up shop in Decatur, shooting a good chunk of that time in the historic Decatur Cemetery. Filming has also taken place in downtown Newnan and Grantville. Signs were spotted on the Fulton and Coweta County lines on Roscoe Road as well as off of I-75 and Howell Mill.

“Michelle Darnell” (Code: Darlings), staring Melissa McCarthy, Kristin Bell, and Peter Dinklage, has been spotted all over town. They finished March in Castleberry Hill and near the Fernbank Museum of Natural History. In early April, they took drives out to Forsyth County and Morrow. Their biggest splash, however, was off of 14th Street and Crescent Avenue, where set designers transformed the area into Chicago’s Michigan Avenue. Following that, “Michelle Darnell” took up residence on Juniper Street and 5th Street. Last week, they filmed at the downtown W Hotel and Gwinnett Arena.

Three-time Academy Award winning director Ang Lee (“Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon,” “Brokeback Mountain,” “Life of Pi”) is in Georgia filming his latest, “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk” (BLLHW). Based on the book of the same name, the story follows a squad of Iraq War vets on a stateside victory tour. The film stars Vin Diesel, Kristen Stewart, Steve Martin, and Decatur’s own Chris Tucker. For the most part, production has been down in Locust Grove. Recently, filming has been spotted within the city.

On April 13, Woodruff Arts Center was turned into a Dallas-area hotel complete with Texas-registered cabs and cars. For this week and the next, Falcons fans may bristle when the interior of the Georgia Dome will be transformed into the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium. Filming will take place at night April 20 through April 24, and during the day the following week.

Anna Kendrick, who’s been in Atlanta for a while now filming “The Accountant” (Wolf), has a new movie in the works. She stars in the singles-at-a-wedding comedy, “Table 19” (T19), along with Stephen Merchant, Craig Robinson, and Lisa Kudrow. A lot of filming for this one’s been near Lake Lanier and more recently off of 3rd Street in Midtown. Crews have also been spotted near 17th Street at the Couragous Worship Church.

“The Originals” (TOGS) continues to shoot in Conyers, and “Finding Carter” (WHO) had a basecamp at Due West United Methodist Church in Cobb County on March 14. We’ve also heard that USA’s “Satisfaction” (SAT) has begun shooting its second season, filming at Colony Square in Midtown on April 16 and near Williams Street on April 19.

NEXT MONTH: “Captain America: Civil War.” - the production code will likely be 'Sputnik'. The next Divergent Series movie, 'Allegiant' should also start in May. 'Amnesia' will be the production code word. In Ball Ground, GA 'Mena' will bring Tom Cruise. Zach Galifianakis and Jon Hamm will also be in the New Hollywood to shoot “Keeping Up with the Joneses.”

#Atlanta - #Casting Agency : Hollywood Casting and Film launches casting service in Atlanta

Hollywood Casting and Film, the leading professional casting studio in Los Angeles that provides actors and aspiring filmmakers with the critical tools needed to discover and audition top talent, today announced that it’s bringing ‘Hollywood to Your Hometown’ in Atlanta with the launch of its casting platform for actors and filmmakers. The Los Angeles-based company is leveraging its success in Hollywood to create a thriving entertainment community comprised of actors and filmmakers in Atlanta, Georgia. Actors can now visit the national platform at www.hometowncastingandfilm.com to learn about audition opportunities in the Atlanta market and find out how to get involved in local productions.

All auditions are web-based, allowing actors to constantly audition for films from the comfort of their own home. The casting platform provides actors the opportunity to film themselves on a camera, tablet or smartphone and easily upload their audition footage to the Hollywood Casting and Film database where it can be instantly viewed by filmmakers from all over the country. Actors are able to sign up for a Pro Membership for $1.95 the first month, and as low as $9.95 per month thereafter to receive free casting notices in Atlanta and audition for projects online.

“Hollywood Casting and Film is leveraging our success in Los Angeles to bring acting and filmmaking opportunities to the top talent in Atlanta, Georgia,” said Vinay Bhagat, co-founder of Hollywood Casting and Film. “Over the years, we have learned one important lesson: while Hollywood remains the entertainment capital of the world, there are creative, passionate and talented people everywhere, just waiting for their chance in the spotlight. Rather than forcing these people to move to Hollywood for the chance to even audition, we’ve instead decided to bring this casting service to select hometowns throughout the country to allow them to audition for exciting film projects which can eventually provide a stepping stone to pursuing their career goals in Hollywood. Now artists anywhere in the country, and specifically in Atlanta, can hone their craft and forge relationships with other creative professionals in their communities.”

Recognizing the need to not only support actors located outside of the Los Angeles area, but to also expand the filmmaking industry to other markets, Hollywood Casting and Film’s service will bring local actors and filmmakers together in Atlanta to make short films, feature films, commercials or other projects. In addition, Hollywood Casting and Film will be producing its own short films by hiring local directors in Atlanta, effectively bringing Hollywood to our hometown. Taking the concept of community one step further, once projects are cast, all actors and filmmakers who are members of Hollywood Casting and Film will then have the opportunity to volunteer as crewmembers in roles ranging from scouts and prop masters to production assistants and makeup artists, constantly providing openings to work with creative professionals in the Atlanta entertainment industry.

Hollywood Casting and Film works with entertainment industry veterans such as David Dean Bottrell, actor and director known for his work on Boston Legal, Hrach Titizian, actor and producer known for his work on The Men Who Stare at Goats and Homeland, and Leilani Downer, writer and producer known for her work on Growing Pains and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Aire. These advisors host classes and educational opportunities for HCandF actors as well as provide online feedback on members’ auditions. “As an advisor to Hollywood Casting and Film, I’ve used my experience writing and producing for hit TV shows to help the company develop quality content that will speak to actors and filmmakers everywhere,” says Leilani Downer, writer and producer.

Hollywood Casting and Film opened its doors in 2012 with a mission of helping actors increase the number of quality auditions they receive for short films, feature films and commercials. Today, Hollywood Casting and Film is a top casting venue for independent and student filmmakers to find and audition top talent, while giving aspiring actors opportunities to find and audition for a wide variety of quality projects in a professional and safe environment.

For more information about Hollywood Casting and Film’s national platform and to find out how to get involved in Atlanta, please visit: www.hometowncastingandfilm.com. Hollywood Casting and Film is currently hiring Atlanta-based filmmaking partners to produce original content. Filmmakers interested in the opportunity to work with Hollywood Casting and Film may visit the website for more information.

#ATLANTA - Third Rail Studios being built - At 'Assembly', the old Doraville GM plant/other studios

The Integral Group, which acquired the GM site last year, is partnering with Capstone South Properties to develop "Third Rail Studios" on a six-acre section of the 165-acre development.

The first phase of Third Rail Studios will be in an existing 130,000-square-foot building retrofitted into film and television production studios. It will include 60,000 square feet of sound stages and 20,000 square feet of production support mill shops, administrative offices and related vendor spaces.

When fully-built out, Third Rail Studios will be a 270,000-square-foot-facility.

"It's something everybody can get excited about because it provides a big spark," said Eric Pinckney, Integral's project executive for Assembly.

The studios are expected to open for business by the end of the year, said Christopher Martorella, Integral's president of commercial real estate.

"It's something that can happen very quickly because there's an existing place that lends itself well to what we want to do," Martorella said.

He added that Integral was fortunate to have teamed up with Michael Hahn, the founder of Capstone South. Before becoming a venture partner with Integral, Hahn worked for the proposed Jacoby Development movie studio mixed-use project in Gwinnett County.

"We are confident we will have a tenant ready to go," said Hahn, who added he already has reached out to his contacts in the business. "I think we'll have someone notable as a tenant."

The film studio is the first major project to be announced for the Assembly development, which is being marketed and presented as several different neighborhood districts.

Despite the plethora of movie studios planned or open in Atlanta, there is pent-up demand for more film and television production facilities, said Egbert Perry, CEO of Integral. Having Third Rail Studios as part of the Assembly development will add a "sexy, funky, cool" flavor to that part of the GM site.

"Third Rail Studios" refers to the three rail lines that previously served the GM Doraville assembly plant, as well as the creative energy in the media production community.

The now unused rail lines will be preserved and integrated within the landscape, akin to New York City's Highline. The studios will anchor the "Yards District" portion of the site, billed as a one-of-a-kind destination for dining, entertainment, parks, art, retail, makers, and other businesses.

"We are still way below what is needed to support the industry as it exists today," Perry said of the new studio project. "It doesn't begin to address the existing demand, not to mention any growth in demand."

Third Rail Studios is just the latest in a number of new studio projects popping up in the metro Atlanta area. Eagle Rock Distributing Co., a large beverage distributor in Atlanta, opened two sound stage locations in Norcross and Stone Mountain within the past year.

Mailing Avenue Stageworks opened near Grant Park in 2012, and it the past month it opened a second location on the Westside.

Pinewood Studios in Fayette County also is expanding its operations.

A handful of other new studio projects are still in the planning stages. Tyler Perry Studios, now operating a 200,000-square-foot studio in Southwest Atlanta, is in talks to buy 330 acres of Fort McPherson for a new complex.

Shannon Mall in Union City, Ga., is being redeveloped into a 345,000-square-foot studio by a firm called 404 Studio Partners, which is led by former Turner Entertainment Group andUniversal Studio executives.

Atlanta developer Jim Jacoby plans to turn Norcross fiber optic plant OFS into an "Atlanta Media Complex" with seven sound stages and a film school, but recent reports indicate the project is facing a financing hurdle.

"The site's transportation history and rail yards are symbolic, as Third Rail Studios and the Yards will continue to transport creativity and content to and from the region," Hahn said.

The design for Third Rail Studios is led by Janson Tsai, a division of the architectural design firm Perkins Eastman. Previous work includes design of Kaufman/Astoria Film Studios and Steiner Film Studios in New York, as well as projects with Imagine Films, CBS Television,NBC Universal, ESPN, Disney, and Sony — among others.

When looking to name the development, Perry acknowledged he did not love "Assembly." But the more he thought about it, he realized it worked on many different levels.

Five film and television studios around Atlanta, including Covington-based Triple Horse Studios, have come together to form an advocacy group for Georgia's studios and businesses that support film and television industries. The five studios forming the new Georgia Studio and Infrastructure Alliance (GSIA) are: Eagle Rock Studios Atlanta, EUE/Screen Gems Studios Atlanta, Mailing Avenue Stageworks, Tyler Perry Studios and Triple Horse Studios.

The 501 C-6 group was created to serve as a legislative and educational advocacy group for studio and production support businesses in the Georgia film and television industry. The state's Education of the crew members and development of talent needed to keep clients returning to Georgia will be another key focus.

The GSIA was formed in part because studios and entertainment-related businesses do not receive the tax credit from Georgia's Entertainment Industry Investment Act, also called the Georgia film and television credit. The tax credit applies only to the production dollars spent creating television content or motion pictures. Tyler Perry Studios and Triple Horse Studios are eligible for credits only for their in-house production and post-production work-but not for their studio investment or hosting of third party productions.

Kris Bagwell, Executive Vice President of EUE/Screen Gems Studios and Chairman of GSIA says,"This is a group of companies putting capital at risk and hiring employees, many of them Georgians, due to the success of the tax credit."

Ozzie Areu, President of Tyler Perry Studios says, "Tyler Perry Studios is pleased to become a part of the Georgia Studio and Infrastructure Alliance. We believe that it is important for those investing in making this a long-term business in the state of Georgia speak with one voice. TPS is fully committed to working with state and city officials along with the other members of the Alliance to make the TV and film production business a permanent fixture in Georgia's vibrant economic success story."

Georgia Film, Music and Digital Entertainment Office Deputy Commissioner Lee Thomas points to the combination of the sound stages and the film tax credit making it possible to attract projects that directly and indirectly employ more than 77,900 people in the state. "Being able to provide productions with state-of-the-art infrastructure, a trained workforce and deep network of support services is essential to the sustainability of this industry," she says.

Members of the group made education and job training a priority as they formed the organization by doing the following:

The GSIA recently partnered with the Lt. Governor's Office and Georgia's College and Career Academies, developing a training curriculum for film and television jobs. Several GSIA members serve on the Advisory Board for the Georgia Film Institute at Southern Crescent Technical College in Griffin, Ga. where students are already enrolled and learning film-specific trades.

In November 2014, GSIA members joined Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle at his annual Business and Education Summit held at Rockdale Career Academy in Conyers and the Newton College and Career Academy in Covington. Film education was one of the top initiatives, and members helped produce a video on film jobs for the College and Career Academy website: http://georgiacareeracademies.org/?p=1264

Georgia Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle says, "I couldn't be more excited and thrilled about the partnership between the Georgia Studio & Infrastructure Alliance and our College and Career Academies. It is important that we develop a film-ready workforce to meet the needs of the film productions that are advancing to Georgia. This great partnership will not only serve as a powerful economic generator for our state but will create jobs for Georgians and new opportunities for a highly skilled workforce."

GSIA executive director Misty Holcomb says the membership will eventually encompass other production support businesses such as post-production houses, lighting and grip companies, production payroll and others.
