The film business continues to grow so quickly that the term "Hollywood South" is becoming less of a quaint marketing moniker and more literally true with every movie that shoots here. Part of the reason for the growth is financial — state tax credits — and the other part is the crew and facilities now available here.

This week on Out to Lunch, Peter Ricchiuti explores both these areas with two of the city's leaders in film financing and film production: Susan Brennan,  founder and CEO of Second Line Stages, and Lenny Alsfeld, CEO of FBT Investments and its Film and Entertainment division.
