Fostering the Milledgeville community's film footprint is important.
“This town is like a virgin film location. We love that. There hasn't been people scamming or wrecking things,” Bennett said. “We are a responsible group. We do everything by the book. All the owners are so flexible.”
Golnick said the town's architecture and landscape opens endless film or TV applications.
