MELDRIM, Ga. (AP) - A production company promising a film studio campus in Effingham County is hoping to complete the first building by the end of 2014.

Medient Studios Inc. officials presented their master plan to local officials on Tuesday. The Savannah Morning News reports that CEO Jake Shapiro says the initial production building will support 200 jobs.

Shapiro says the first phase of construction including two stages will cost between $15 and $25 million. Later projects include hotels, a lake, sport fields and an amphitheater.

Some local officials say they're skeptical a project can get through a state review process before the end of the year. A committee plans to meet weekly while work continues.
