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 Dwight Abercrombie.
Dwight Abercrombie started in the TV and movie production business eight years ago, when he was working in a fast-food restaurant and struggling to find stability.
Now, after earning a promotion in a busy year at Manhattan Beach Studios Equipment Co., he’s proud of the company’s newest hire: his own son.
“He graduated last year and said he wants to get into productions, and he really enjoys it,” Dwight says.
Dwight worked on plenty of productions since returning from the pandemic shutdown, including “Respect,” the Aretha Franklin Oscar contender. “It’s even better now, with all the work,” he says.
