As expected, Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue signed into a law a bill providing financial incentives to movies, TV shows, commercials, music videos and game developers.
As reported by the Duluth Weekly, Bill Thompson, deputy commissioner of the Film, Music and Digital Entertainment Office, said:
The 2008 Entertainment Industry Investment Act… will return Georgia to its rightful place of prominence in all major entertainment industry segments.
We expect a significant increase in film and television projects, and Georgia will be the most competitive state in the country for video game productions. Georgia is one of the few states whose entertainment incentives support the video game industry.
GP: Cool GTA parody graphic, no? We found this several years ago accompanying a political commentary slamming Gov. Perdue, who is depicted on the right side of the box. Since we can’t take any credit for creating this neat-o graphic in the first place, we won’t be taking the heat for misspelling “Georgia” either….
