It might look like the Great Wall of Senoia, but the 15-foot temporary wall to be constructed on the Gin Property in the fall will actually serve as a contained set for AMC television’s “The Walking Dead.”
The July 7 request to construct a temporary 15-foot wall around portions of the Gin Property just south of the downtown retail district received unanimous approval from the Senoia City Council.
Stalwart Films representative Mike Riley said the request to construct the wall dealt with creating a contained set for filming portions of the “The Walking Dead” episodes for the 2014-2015 season.
The wall will be in place from mid-September until the end of November, Riley said.
Plans call for the closure of Morgan Street near Main Street on the east and just past the homes on Lower Creek Trail to the west. McKnight Drive will be closed as will Amey Street at its intersection with Morgan Street.
Access to the contained set area will be by way of manual security gates located on both sides of Morgan Street, Morgan at Amey Street, on McKnight Drive at Lower Creek Trail and at McKnight at Baggarly Way.
Riley said the gates will be staffed by security personnel on a 24-hour basis, adding that deliveries to the area will be coordinated.
Plans call for the metal wall to be anchored in such a way that it will withstand winds of 115 miles per hour.
Several area residents and business owners were present at the meeting, though only four posed questions or concerns about the project. While largely supportive of the project, concerns were raised about traffic flow, access to their residences and the potential for increased numbers of tourists in close proximity to private residences.
Riley said businesses on Main Street will not be affected and people will be in place to deal with tourists who might attempt to venture onto the property of adjacent residences.
One resident said those living inside the contained set should be compensated for the inconvenience. Riley in response noted that it is customary to work with people whose property is being impacted. Continue reading “Town in Senoia, GA. gets walls built for The Walking Dead” »

Spoilers. I hate em’. With season 5 of The Walking Dead actively filming here in Atlanta, rumors and spoilers seem to be common place. Every time I turn around another magazine has posted a tweet, pic, or interview hinting at what lies ahead on the show. Okay,I get it. Walking Dead fans are starving for news about the show and their favorite cast members.
Well here’s some good news if you live in Atlanta and this is no rumor. The Newnan Times-Herald just published the current filming location for The Walking Dead.
The old Piedmont Newnan Hospital campus on Hospital Road has been a hive of activity over the past few days.
The parking lot is packed. Tents are erected in a courtyard.
But it’s not because the state has given the go-ahead for the new mental hospital proposed to locate there.
The former hospital is now the site for filming of the AMC cable television network hit show “The Walking Dead.”
Crews from Stalwart Films have been on site for the past few days, and some scenes are set to be filmed outside today.
Intermittent road closures on Hospital Road are set for 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. today and 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday, weather permitting.
Outdoor scenes were originally set to be filmed Wednesday, but were delayed because of the weather, according to Gina Snider, Newnan city public information officer.
When outdoor filming is taking place, Newnan Police officers stop traffic at four-minute intervals, according to Snider.
Fans of “The Walking Dead” are dedicated, and several were out Wednesday and Thursday along Hospital Road, hoping to catch a glimpse of filming.
*** Remember** security is VERY tight so before you make the hike,remember your chances of actually meeting a cast member or watching filming are probably slim. However on the outside chance you do get some photos, we’ll be happy to post them here! Good luck!
From The Citizen.com:
Griffin’s Southern Crescent Technical College (SCTC) is about to get in on the action created by the arrival of Pinewood Atlanta Studios in Fayetteville. SCTC has been approved to create the Georgia Film Institute (GFI), which will provide technical certificates for use in the growing film industry.
SCTC Director of Marketing and Public Relations Anna Taylor on June 4 said the State Board of the Technical College System of Georgia approved the first five film and television technical certificates of credit created by Griffin-based SCTC.
“It is the system and state’s first for-credit curriculum aimed at training workers for Georgia’s growing film industry,” Taylor said. “The film and television production certificates include accounting assistant, administrative support assistant, hair and make-up technician, on-set production assistant and production scenic technician.”
Taylor said other certifications are currently being developed for job categories such as grips, gaffers, electricians, on-set medics and food craft workers.
“SCTC will open GFI this fall offering the initial five certificates with additional certificates available in upcoming semesters,” said Taylor. “Scott Votaw, a former Hollywood producer and Griffin native, has been named the executive director of GFI.”
The college held its first recruiting event for the institute in April with over 80 prospective students attending, Taylor noted.
“Every student who receives a certificate will take two basic courses in film, as well as other courses in specific fields of study,” Taylor said. “The basic courses teach skills of film and television production such as terminology and protocols of the industry.”
Taylor said SCTC also plans to begin offering an associate of applied science degree in film and television production by fall 2015. Continue reading “Trade school creates GFI for Pinewood Atlanta” »
