Andrew Schutt Quoted in Atlanta Business Chronicle

Andrew J. Schutt commented on the effectiveness of Georgia’s entertainment tax credit in an article in the Atlanta Business Chronicle on March 19th, "Avatar Puts Studio on Map." The article describes Giant Studios, an Atlanta-based production company that uses optical-motion capture technology to write hundreds of thousands of lines of code to define how the human skeleton moves, which brought to life the Na’vi characters in James Cameron’s Avatar.

Mr. Schutt explains that Georgia offers a tax credit of up to 30 percent off the production income for film and entertainment companies, which can lead to significant savings.
