New film studio to open on Gulfstream Road

CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

River Oaks Film Studios announced that it's opening its largest facility off of Gulfstream Road.

It is over 150,000 square feet made up of six sound stages.

President Rodney Dickey says the production space is to accommodate Savannah's growing film industry. 

"At any given time, I would hope to operate two shows; preferably three. Then we are already looking at expansion after that," Dickey said. 

According to the Film Office, last year the industry spent more than $58-million dollars in the Savannah region.
