For the past 5 years, Atlanta has been the filming spot for many of our favorite hit movies and TV shows, not to mention the numerous reality shows based on ATL celebs. Without question, Atlanta is increasingly the place to be for entertainment. Lately the talent hasn’t been coming from LA and NYC like back in the day, Casting Directors and producers are pulling talent directly from the Peach State; Casting Directors like Winsome Sinclair of Winsome Sinclair & Associates (WSA).
Oftentimes we don’t know or hear the names of the people who make the major decisions for the films and television shows we know and love, however with 25+ years of experience, and block buster hits under her belt such as Precious, Sparkle, 2 Fast 2 Furious, Amistad, Jungle Fever, and more, Winsome Sinclair is a name to know! Her most recent project, the upcoming film Bessie(starring Queen Latifah), gave an opportunity to a lot of Atlanta’s incredibly talented actors and dancers. She has now made Atlanta her home, though she frequently travels back and forth to NYC.
With more and more attention surrounding Atlanta, and more and more film makers, as well as the people who make film and television happen are relocating to Atlanta, does this mean “Hollywood” is changing it’s address to “Peachtree”?
