“Athena Studios will support locals who work in the industry—many of whom now commute to Atlanta for jobs—as well as restaurants, caterers, hotels and retailers.”

“It’s such a great opportunity for our students. I can’t find any other program in the country that has this kind of access that we’re going to have.”

Stages

Athena Studios is the newest TV and film studio in Georgia. With over 127,000 square feet of purpose-built sound stages, Athena Studios can accommodate film and TV productions of all sizes including commercials, TV series, and blockbuster films. Our six sound stages are fully soundproof and fortified with a huge amount of stage power to provide lighting and electrical connections to meet the specific needs of each production no matter how large.

Features

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.

Backlot

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.
