Ending the Standoff: A Resurgence in Filmmaking

In more exciting news for the entertainment industry, the recent settlement of the strikes by WGA and SAG has paved the way for a resurgence in film and television production. As the gears of the industry start turning again, Assembly Atlanta is more than ready to play its part as a premier filming location.


The strikes, driven by a pursuit of fair compensation, AI regulations, improved working conditions, and a desire for more inclusive representation in the industry, had momentarily halted many productions. However, the recent agreements reached between the guilds and industry stakeholders are seen as a significant step toward addressing these concerns and ensuring a more sustainable and equitable future for all involved.
