Short film, music video shot locally

Production team loves Milledgeville’s potential



Considering the success of the OK Go production, Bennett and Gregory Duke's Glass Door Entertainment decided Milledgeville was the perfect spot for another industry challenge.

The production group joined the 48 Hour Film Project's 73 Atlanta competitors. Starting Friday, June 14 around 7:30 p.m., the team received their required character, prop and dialogue.

A wildcard chance landed Golnick the zombie genre to direct in a fast-paced weekend.

Using Milledgeville became a simple choice.

“For us when it came to whether we would film in Atlanta, we've made such awesome friends out here that it was a no brainer,” Golnick said.

Nunn was a big local help, according to Golnick and Bennett.

The local resident and well-respected law enforcement figure toured the film team around numerous locations.

“We really didn't know what the subject was going to be, so we had to prepare for anything they threw at us. That's why we looked at so many different sites,” Nunn said.

The short film's main scenes were shot at Treanor Drive and a brickyard warehouse off North Jefferson Street. 

Todd and Stacy Pittman at Pittman's Paint & Body Shop provided a red truck flipped on its side for the opening scene of “Strain.”

Stacy described the crew as fun and respectful. The body shop co-owner sees the short film and music video as a positive bringing good publicity.

Treanor Drive resident Glenda Brookins Chandler watched most of the Saturday process lasting from 8 a.m. to near 3 p.m.

“It was amazing to see how many takes they do to produce one little piece of film,” Chandler said. “It's neat they are using Milledgeville for some of this stuff.”

The hospitality here is second to none, according to Golnick. Milledgeville offers locations and helpful folks beyond big budget LA or Atlanta.
