Atlanta Residents: Is Your Home a Star?
Film location scouts are looking for homes in the Atlanta area. Is your residence close-up ready?
Georgians are accustom to film crews springing up in the most interesting places or having their local coffee shop transformed into a Starbucks supposedly in New England. If you haven’t noticed, the rock you’re living under was probably scouted for a scene in The Walking Dead.
Have you ever thought that maybe your home is ready for its close-up? Hey, Madea and her family might need somewhere to gather for their next reunion.
According to the Georgia Film, Music & Digital Entertainment Office approximately $3.1 billion in revenue was generated by projects filmed in Georgia last year alone, and many Atlantans are stepping up and taking a slice off that pie by opening their front doors.
Listing your home with the Georgia Film Commission online is a fairly simple process. Fill out the form and upload photos of your home and you’re done. As you’re allowed to upload up to 20 pictures, dress up your house and show off its best features, inside and out. Once reviewed and approved, your photos will be added to their library, and are available for viewing by location professionals worldwide seeking the perfect location for their projects. The film office will contact you if there is interest in using your property for a production. There is no cost to list your property with the office.
Recent films shot in Georgia include Flight, Trouble With The Curve, Lawless, Parental Guidance, Madea's Witness Protection, Footloose (2012), Joyful Noise, Wanderlust, What To Expect When You’re Expecting, American Reunion, The Three Stooges, The Odd Life of Timothy Green, Fast 5, and X-Men: First Class.
All those folks need a place to call home, why not yours?
