Moving Up Through The Ranks

Occasionally we check-in with some of the people featured in our stories to learn how their careers are progressing in Georgia’s production industry. Here’s an update on Tina Sauls.


Tina Sauls got her start in movies and TV in 2009 as a locations production assistant on “Zombieland” 2 miles from her home in Valdosta.


By last year, she was an assistant to executive producers of “Dear Evan Hansen,” an A-list musical filmed mostly in Atlanta.


She’s worked a range of jobs on productions including Tom Cruise's “American Made,” the "Hunger Games" trilogy and as assistant to the executive producer of "Harold and the Purple Crayon.”


Tina loves the progressive opportunities she has found and hopes more productions will head outside of Atlanta.


“If studios realized there’s more to Georgia, then they would gain advantages and opportunities, with creative locations and talented crew we have to offer," she says.
