-Locations in Atlanta Area and Macon Area
We will meet at The Make a Film in a Day Classroom in either Fayetteville, Georgia, near Atlanta, or a location in or near Macon, Georgia. Most shooting is done on location based on the story developed. Georgia has such rich art and culture and has become known "Gallywood", since it is Hollywood in Georgia.
We will break into groups depending on attendance and work collaboratively through inception of idea, storyboarding, shot list and script for a "short". (We do accept script submissions in advance for MAFIAD-3 as well as have pre-approved stock scripts on hand).
