Filmmaker's Milledgeville relocation all about feeding the soul



Using film to expose the Milledgeville community's culture and assets is next on Curtis' checklist.

Coined the Milledgeville Film Collaborative, the venture wants to bring screenwriters, performers and film professionals together in a hands-on way to create original, high-quality short films and feature-length movies.

All the production will be completed locally. This extracurricular labor of love offers college students, faculty or anyone with a love of film to help raise Milledgeville's profile.

“What I'm looking for are great stories, passionate actors and people who are committed to telling those stories,” Curtis said. “I frankly don't care where they are from.”

Short film scripts are needed to get the collaborative moving on summer production. The best, practical script for the local landscape will have a shot.

For the best-case scenario, Curtis said launching a downtown film festival would serve as the venue to premier the collaborative work. It's all about getting the ball rolling for the local economy.

“I love this town. That's why we changed our whole lives to live here basically,” Curtis said. “I see a lot of opportunity. I'm downtown almost everyday, so I'd like to see it thrive and flourish.”

Script submissions go through Visit for the Blackbird Coffee video and other portfolio work.
