SAG-AFTRA Atlanta Local President

Where: The Hilton Hotel in Rockville
1750 Rockville Pike
Rockville, MD 20852
Please join our SAG-AFTRA President, Lance Lewman, and his special guest, Ric Reitz, SAG-AFTRA President of the Atlanta Local, as they explore and discuss how to play an important role in the resurgence of film and television production in the state. Ric will discuss how the Atlanta tax film incentive became an overwhelming success in drawing production to the State of Georgia. Atlanta is currently third in film and television revenues (after LA and NY) and averages between 35 and 45 projects in production in the state at any given time. Ric will speak member-to-member about the do’s and don’ts in creating a healthy incentive program.
Light hors d’oeuvres, cash bar, soda, and coffee will be served. We expect a full meeting so please arrive on time.
Ric Reitz is an actor, writer, composer, director and producer, who has been active in show business for more than 39 years. He is the past President of the Georgia Production Partnership and a former member of the Georgia Film, Video & Music Advisory Commission. Ric is one of the key architects in the development of Georgia’s current entertainment tax incentive law and co-author of the Georgia Department of Economic Development’s Entertainment Business Plan through 2020.
