Here are some photos from the Macon Telegraph and below is a video from WMAZ TV.
One of my parishioners, Michael Taylor, who owns Micheal's Restaurant was paid $4,000 to have his restaurant boarded up and closed for a day. A resident above his store was paid $500 to keep all his lights turned off during shooting! All this is within a block of Saint Joseph Church. I would have let us be boarded up for $4000 and I would have taken $500 to keep my lights off too!
After I exercised this morning at the Macon Health Club, which next door to it was all the vans and equipment for the new movie being filmed in Macon, I have to say that the set decorators have really done a terrific job of making Macon look like a disaster zone.
There is trash strewn everywhere and this is called ART in the movie business.
