Studio Savannah, a venture formed by two independent producers who love the city (and want it to share a bit of Atlanta’s production largesse) said it has locked down plans for a sustainable sound stage complex that will break ground next month. The facility will span two acres with an initial investment of $40 million.
Its partners David Paterson of Arcady Bay Entertainment and Taylor Owenby of ISP Global Capital are calling the complex KAT-5 for its ability to withstand a Category 5 hurricane. They indicated that its unusual design elements, which include a rooftop solar farm and a “concrete water tank platform base” that will allow it to serve as a staging ground for FEMA, helped get it off the ground.
