Production team loves Milledgeville’s potential



Creative support means a lot to independent guys self-funding these projects.

“It's nice to see people care about creativity and know that we don't have the money,” Golnick said.

Bennett said Atlanta is getting so big with new studios that it is the new LA.

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.

“The sky is the limit. You can literally do everything you need to do for every genre and film here. It's an incredible place,” the director said.

Boosting the economy becomes a terrific film industry byproduct. Military fatigues were purchased at Bayne's Army Store.

The 35-person 48-hour film crew felt comfortable and welcome. Golnick said actors from feature films and commercials had a blast.

The Nunns served the crew lunch at JMA's cafeteria after a long Saturday morning.

Nunn is anxious to see how the short film finishes in the competition. The best films make the Cannes Film Festival.

This could be a major deal for Milledgeville.

“We have a lot to offer a film crew to come in and do this. I expect them to get the word out to other people,” Nunn said. “Hopefully, this is a start. It might turn into something for the whole Milledgeville area.”

Glass Door Entertainment used Georgia College students on set. Undergrads get real world experience with pros.

Bennett bragged on the quality of student talent.

“That is such a big resource,” he said. “They are better than many professionals.”
