As the geographic center of population in Georgia, Butts County is truly the heart of our state because we are about people. What is it that sets us apart from so many others? Location. History. Natural Resources. Tourism and fun things to do. Interesting and caring people. While we may be small in size, we are big on all of these things!
First, we have great location! We’re on Interstate 75 between Macon and Atlanta, and while we benefit from the synergy of these two large cities, we have been able to maintain our small town charm and natural vistas. We have two access points to the interstate with prime industrial and commercial land located at both interchanges, available for development, as well as access to rail lines from Norfolk Southern Railroad. Georgia highways 16, 36, 42 and 87 all converge in Jackson, as well as US Highway 23. When it comes to location, we have it!
Welcome to the Film Industry!
Butts County is a Georgia Camera Ready Community and was one of the earliest counties to meet the qualifications for being designated by the Georgia Film, Music & Digital Entertainment Office. The Georgia Film, Music & Digital Entertainment Office launched the Camera Ready Communities program in 2010 to train and certify Georgia counties to work effectively with production companies and provide local, one-on-one assistance in every aspect of production, from location scouting and film permits to traffic control, catering and lodging.
When it comes to filming for movies or television, location is everything and we feature a number of sites suitable for filming and conducive to production needs. Our natural vistas, scenic locations and historical sites combined with our close proximity to Atlanta and an international airport offers a combination of location and logistical support that is hard to find in other parts of Georgia. Additionally, we have played host to film companies shooting location footage for films that will be introduced at various film festivals.
