East Mountain opens new film studio

East Mountain Studios celebrated the soft opening of its 130,000 square foot studios with an evening of excitement of enchantment on Wednesday. The premiere film, television, commercial and video production studio, located at 2030 East Park Drive, Conyers is now open for business.

Owner Thomas Blake said, “We’re excited here at East Mountain Studios. We’re looking forward to the economic impact and boom that we’re going to contribute to the county and city here. We’re east of Atlanta and we don’t feel as if we have any competition here. At the end of the day we’re ecstatic; at the end of the day we look forward to presenting ourselves and taking that opportunity and going to the next level.“

This event, which was free and open the public, brought out hundreds spectators from all over the county and neighboring counties as well. Despite the chilly weather, many city officials and state representatives were present and just as eager about all the possibilities and opportunities that EMS will bring.  Conyers resident Kisha Banks expressed her enthusiasm. “I’m glad this is closer to home. I love what I see so far.”

The night began with a welcome and remarks by the host for the evening, Bill Leavell, who serves on the community outreach board. His comments were followed by an invocation, presentation of colors, and national anthem. Remarks by the Rockdale Commission Chairman Richard Oden and City of Conyers Counciman Gerald Hinesley came next. The ribbon cutting, led by Diane Adoma followed, and the ceremony closed with a benediction. Participants then proceeded inside to enjoy the rest of the festivities and tour the studio. There was a variety of food to choose from and entertainment to enjoy.
