Carrie Burns is co-founder and CEO/Chief Movie Buff of Atlanta Movie Tours. She has been engaged in the Atlanta film industry for years, loves building experiences as well as showing off Atlanta and Georgia film. As a natural connector, Carrie often serves as a liaison between film and television crews working in “Atlanta’s backlot” of Castleberry Hill, which sparked her initial interest in the filming boom in Georgia.
She is dedicated to closing the gap between crews, neighbors and local businesses in order to create a symbiotic relationship for all involved during filming and keep the fun (and incentives) rolling in! Bringing film tourism into the mix in Georgia is a key focus of her day-to-day job and collaborating with other tour companies is a great bonus as she loves learning!
Moving to Atlanta from Miami many moons ago, she holds a Masters in Business Administration & Marketing from Mercer University and worked in web development for years. She serves as Southern Provincial VP for Delta Sigma Pi and is on the board of the Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau, ArtsATL as well as others. Her husband Steven and she have two rescue pups, are huge Atlanta United supporters, as well as being avid beach-lovers & scuba divers! As Shuri says in Georgia filmed Black Panther, “You haven’t seen anything yet.”
