How powerful and vital is Georgia’s film industry? In back-to-back years, Savannah has hosted arguably not just one, but two of the world’s most beloved movie stars, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who won in this category last year, and Will Smith, who wins this year.
It’s probably not a coincidence that both Johnson and Smith are among the most adept users of social media in the entertainment business.
In town to shoot the Ang Lee-directed Gemini Man, Smith garnered a very popular local following not only for his accessible friendliness but for his engaging social media presence. Indeed, Smith’s frequent Facebook videos offer some of the best self-help, self-actualization advice available pretty much anywhere.
