Hollywood Producer Argues Atlanta Film Crews Have No Passion, No Experience


Producer argues that film crews lack experience and passion.

According to a recent article from AJCBuzz, a producer speaking at a panel discussing industry asserted that Atlanta-based film crews lack experience and passion.

Schwartz of Black Label Media was quoted saying that 's growing film industry is mostly due to the and not due to the quality of film crews.

“There's a lower quality among crews in incentive-heavy states such as Georgia because of their lack of experience. ‘That's my biggest problem with chasing incentives. In Atlanta, this is all new to them. They have no passion and they think they know it all.'”

Black Label Media filmed “The Good Lie,” a movie starring Reese Witherspoon which filmed throughout metro Atlanta. “The Good Lie” centers on Reese Witherspoon as a brash American woman assigned to help .

While filming, “The Good LieReese Witherspoon was arrested in Atlanta for disorderly conduct, after her husband was pulled over for drinking under the influence. Watch the below:

After Reese Witherspoon‘s arrest, production was delayed for an entire week, EOnline reports.

Perhaps, Ellen Schwartz‘s feelings regarding Atlanta were biased because of Witherspoon's actions, or, the quality of the crew she hired was not what she expected. Regardless, during the panel discussion in Los Angeles, she did not further comment on experience in Atlanta. But, she did shed light on the Sarah Jones accident arguing that film crew members should always feel safe to raise safety issues without the fear of losing their jobs.
