Major Florida Film Studio in the Works

March 26th, 2009 by flanews

A film company hoping to attract more moviemakers to the state plans to build a studio in South Florida.

Florida production company PAS Media is building Atlantic Film Studios. The 110-acre production house and film studio will be located in Broward County. Construction on the 500 million dollar project is scheduled to begin within the next 15 months. The production company is asking lawmakers to offer more incentives to movie makers in order to attract them to their studio. Representative Julio Robaina said the company will help stimulate the states economy.

PAS Media and Atlantic Film Studios will be creating a vital resource in the state of Florida by creating thousands of jobs over the next few years and providing Florida the opportunity to create an industry that will benefit Florida for decades to come, said Robaina.

The companys president says Atlantic Studios will create 15,000 jobs in Broward and Miami-Dade County.
