The crew is scheduled to be on site noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 11 at 250 Auburn Ave NE, Atlanta.

The crew will be comprised of:

  • A small 10-15 person crew will film one scene outdoors.
  • There is no lighting department or equipment.
  • Only personal cars will be present.
  • There will be no large trucks.
  • There will be no street, lane, or sidewalk closures.
  • All filming will take place near the Oddfellows Atrium on Auburn and there will be no amplified sound or special effects.
  • All driveways and entrances remain accessible.

The film industry in Georgia created $9.5 billion in revenue last year. The COVID-19 pandemic shut down most production in mid spring. Although many smaller projects are picking up, state officials as well as entertainment industry analysts fear the state will see a mere fraction of that financial impact in 2020.

As COVID-19 cases continue to rise across the country, they say it’s making restarting production more difficult.
