Crew and Casting Calls in Georgia:
While the Georgia Film, Music and Digital Entertainment Office does not hire crew members nor cast actors and extras for film and TV projects, there are a number of ways for Georgians to find work in the industry. Please find two sections of information and links below — one for CREW and one for CASTING:
When our office is notified about crew or casting opportunities we post them on the “Help Wanted Hotline” page of our website. You can also follow us on Facebook or Twitter. We are not authorized to release production company contact information beyond what is listed on these pages.
You may also wish to list your services in the Georgia Film & Television Sourcebook, the production directory issued to companies shooting in Georgia when they're looking for crew.
When applying for a crew position it is important to indicate at the top of the resume and/or in a cover letter which department or job one is applying for. A general “I’ll do anything” resume will most likely get lost in the shuffle.
If you are new to the industry and looking for work, the typical entry level job is that of Production Assistant (P.A.). In addition to the sources listed above, you may wish to get your name out there by taking P.A. training courses or networking with other film professionals. A list of local organizations offering such events is on our Important Links page.
The links below are general film industry overviews for those not familiar with how productions are staffed and structured:
1. Check our Help Wanted Hotline at 404-962-4055 or online. Here you will find any job postings and casting calls that production companies have asked our office to release.
2. You can also follow us on Facebook or Twitter for additional announcements.
3. Contact casting agencies in the Georgia Film Sourcebook, located at http://www.ozonline.tv/oz_sourcebooks1_gfvs.html
