Athena Studios is the newest TV and film studio in Georgia.

Athena Studios provides soundless, conditioned air in each stage keeping every crew member comfortable and focused while filming during any season. Our stages boast an interior clear height of 40 feet and allow for up to 1,000,000 pounds of suspended live load from the steel, providing rigging departments the ability to suspend a large variety of cables, lights, and heavy set pieces. All of our stages are accessible via large AEC elephant doors and are fully soundproof with walls covered by Insul-Quilts.
With over 45 acres, Athena Studios has plenty of room to build outdoor sets as well. Our expansive backlot provides each production the ability to film outdoors if needed with several areas to choose from. Athena Studios also offers unmatched privacy with full perimeter fencing, an extensive landscape buffer on all sides of the property and custom security based on the needs of each production.
