Atlanta-based Playa Azul Media (PAM) Studios, the first Latina-owned production company in Georgia, has “broken ground” on its Rome studios a 510 Broad St.
“PAM Studios seeks to portray and showcase perspectives of women and minorities that aren’t currently being represented accurately or respectfully,’ said PAM Studios Founder and CEO Maria Guerra-Stoll. “As a woman-owned business, it is particularly exciting to break ground on our first studio location in Rome with a primarily woman-led team. We are also honored to be able to shine a spotlight on the city’s strong independent film industry and fuel revenue for the local economy.’
PAM is working with GSB Architects, Choate Construction Co. and subcontractors Agan Plumbing; ATCO Fire Protection; Bestway Construction Services; Miller Electrical Contractors; and Southern Glass and Metal.
PAM Studios already is filming in Rome and plans a grand opening this summer.
The studio joins Brand RED Studios on Bale Street in the River District. It is a “full-service video production agency. We produce cinematic, emotionally compelling content through providing all-inclusive pre-production, production and post – production video projects.” Brand RED also helps produce Hometown Headlines’ podcast interviews.
Because of spring break, the April meeting of Rome’s Downtown Development Authority board is moving to Wednesday, April14, at 8:30 a.m. in the Carnegie training room. It will be available via Zoom for those who prefer to meet virtually.
