The city of Savannah Film Office spoke about one of the city's film studios filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Last week, Meddin Studios filed for bankruptcy to reorganize after scoring some of Savannah's recent Hollywood movie productions including the punk rock film "CBGB", "Killing Winston Jones" and "Enchanted Amore".

Film Commissioner Jay Self told WTOC the city is very careful to understand their role when working with private companies.

"We are not a business partner with anyone who works in Savannah. We are a facilitator. When great things happen or when not-so-great things happen, we may be involved, but that is really not the health of the private company is not the place for the city to inject itself," Self said.

The company's creditors include the city of Savannah for property taxes, the Georgia Dept. of Revenue, Colony Bank and the Small Business Administration.
