Film Industry Spurs 'Y'allywood' In Georgia
Georgia’s $2 billion film industry has put Atlanta on the map as the Hollywood of the South, or has some describe it, “Y’allywood.” Accordingly, there’s a greater demand there for actors, producers, technicians and stunt people.

Taylor Gantt and Sean Powers, reporters with Here & Now contributor Georgia Public Broadcasting, recently visited the school for a crash course in stunt driving.
