The state of Georgia offers significant tax incentives for movie industries to film in our great state; and with nearly 100 movies filmed here in 2014, Georgia has been fondly nicknamed “Y’allywood”. Aside from offering more frequent celebrity sightings, the movie industry has brought a boost in the economy by means of job creation. It’s a win/win for the industry and Georgia residents.
The PWP Studio team was thrilled to get in on a piece of the movie action by photographing the red carpet premier of 90 Minutes in Heaven – a film based on a man’s afterlife experience following a car accident. Along with a group of local foster children, movie enthusiasts, news outlets, photographers, crew and cast all gathered outside The Fox Theatre for a double-sided step-and-repeat meet and greet – complete with celebrity interviews.
The cast were paraded around the step-and-repeat banner for interviews from local and national news outlets. Atlanta news anchor, Monica Pearson, also made an appearance on the red carpet alongside the cast of 90 Minutes in Heaven. Having retired from WSB-TV in 2012, she and her husband, John, are often spotted around Atlanta at civic and community engagements.
Rick Jackson, the producer of 90 Minutes in Heaven, joined the cast on the red carpet; and shared details about the film and the purpose behind his production company, Giving Films. Giving Films pledged to donate all of the movie’s proceeds to local charities including Faithbridge Foster Care in Alpharetta.
A movie premier wouldn’t be complete without headlining celebrities, and the premier of 90 Minutes in Heaven was no exception. Hayden Christiansen and Kate Bosworth were standouts on the red carpet not only for their glamorous physical features, but also for their notable resumes.
The PWP Studio photography team was out in full-force with six lining the step-and-repeat banner while Patrick and Ben provided roaming coverage.
