For all you content creators in the area... meet Open Rivers Pictures and its CEO and founder, Tammy Williams.

Nov 12, 2012 -- Atlanta, GA.—November 13, 2012. -- Open Rivers Pictures makes history today with the launch of Open Rivers Studios, the first African American female-owned television and film studio, and post-production facility in the state of Georgia.

The focus of Open Rivers Studios is creating, developing and producing original content including; documentaries, comedy series, children’s programming and sitcoms. “With aggressive growth across the digital platform, and the launch of several cable channels targeted to the African-American community, it makes great business sense to grow Open Rivers Pictures in the direction of developing more original content within our own facility, to service these individual distribution outlets,” says CEO and founder, Tammy Williams.

In addition, Open Rivers Studios is available for leasing in support of film studios, cable networks, photographers, casting, rehearsals, and production meetings.

Open Rivers Pictures has content divisions devoted to TV, film, digital and home entertainment, and houses a set construction department to support our original content needs.

"We're excited about launching the first studio of this caliber in Fayetteville, GA.,” says Williams. “Its surrounding suburban communities are ripe with wonderful neighborhoods and settings that will work well for film, and television backdrops.”

The State of Georgia and city of Fayetteville are very passionate about servicing the film community—evident in the 30% tax incentive program. Another highlight is that Fayetteville, GA, is only 20 minutes from Atlanta Hartsfield International Airport making the commute effortless.
