On Thursday afternoon, Atlanta-based Playa Azul Media (PAM) Studios, the first Latina-owned production company in Georgia, held their official groundbreaking ceremony of their new Studios in Downtown Rome.
The Rome facility will be the Studios’ first commercial space, with others planned around the state as PAM Studios continues to grow.
In our WRGA News Video, PAM Studios Founder & CEO Maria Guerra-Stoll gave us a few details about her studio and also what projects they have been working on.
“PAM Studios seeks to portray and showcase perspectives of women and minorities that aren’t currently being represented accurately or respectfully,” said PAM Studios Founder & CEO Maria Guerra-Stoll. “As a woman-owned business, it is particularly exciting to break ground on our first studio location in Rome with a primarily woman-led team. We are also honored to be able to shine a spotlight on the city’s strong independent film industry and fuel revenue for the local economy.”
PAM Studios in Rome will be working with a group of Georgia-based film construction experts including GSB Architects, known for their work with Tyler Perry Studios.
GSB Architects Owner, Billy (William) Barker, Spoke with us about how he hopes PAM Studios will positively impact the Rome community, and also help local people who have an interest in getting involved/connected to the film industry.
