A film production project set in Georgia appealed the denial of a film-tax credit certification. Because the production’s initial two applications were incomplete—in that they did not provide sufficient proof that the project was “fully funded”—and the third application was submitted in an untimely manner, the Court affirmed the Department of Economic Development’s denial of the tax credit.
