Throughout the local process, the crew utilized the basement of the Community Visitors Bureau, state Rep. Rusty Kidd’s office space, the front of City Hall and others along the Wayne Streetscape.
Newly elected District 4 City Councilman Walter Reynolds greeted the crew. Reynolds said a uniform film permitting and fee process is under development.
"We have to get up to speed with the industry," Reynolds said.
