I had such a great experience filming in Dahlonega. The city and county representatives are extremely helpful and eager to support film productions in any way possible. It’s pretty remarkable to come to a small, quaint mountain town like this to find such a professional, production ready atmosphere. Not only are you dealing with great people, but you’re also in one of the prettiest areas in Georgia!  I hope to be back soon!
