ATLANTA — The British film studio that’s home to the James Bond movie franchise announced plans Monday for its first U.S. film production facility, at a site near Atlanta.
The large-scale film complex will be called Pinewood Atlanta, and Pinewood will manage the facility under an agreement with a group of private investors. Plans call for the studio to be developed on 288 acres south of Atlanta in Fayette County and initially include at least five soundstages as well as production offices.
“Today’s agreement is another step forward for the Pinewood brand internationally,” said Ivan Dunleavy, CEO of Pinewood Shepperton PLC, which has studios in the United Kingdom, Canada, the Dominican Republic, Germany and Malaysia. R
Wellington-based film-maker Michael Hobbs is one of five finalists in a global film challenge called MicroFlicks.
MicroFlicks aims to raise awareness about the impact of microfinance in the developing world through short films and is an initiative of VisionFund, the microfinance arm of World Vision.
125 film-makers from around the world entered the competition using previous work to demonstrate their skill. Hobbs made the top five by unanimous decision.
The finalists will now travel to different countries to make films about microfinance. One film will claim the title Microfinance Film of 2013.
Hobbs will travel to Malawi in southern Africa in May to capture the impact small loans can have on the lives of individuals and their communities.
