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.
If you are interested in filming in Butts County, please contact our Camera Ready Film Office Liaison and we will be happy to assist you in providing information, local contact information, logistics and permitting procedures. Our contact information is:
