We Are Camera Ready

The Georgia Film, Music & Digital Entertainment Office (FMDE) has designated Rockdale County as Camera Ready, a special designation given to participating Georgia communities interested in attracting film and television production. 

Our Camera Ready designation means we can provide easier, faster and better access to county production resources and location information. Recent movie productions that utilized the movie-friendly resources available in Rockdale County include Fast and Furious 5,  starring Vin Diesel; A Joyful Noise, starring Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton,  Prisoners, starring Hugh Jackman and  Jake Gyllenhaal; American Pie Reunion, Cartoon Network’s Ben 10 1 & 2, and Rob Zombie’s Zombieland.
