You’re all set to make your movie, but where to film it? Shelbia Jackson, Director of the DeKalb Entertainment Commission, is here to make the case for DeKalb County! She was on the show about two years ago at a Get Connected meetup, but now she’s here for a full interview!

We discuss the benefits of choosing to shoot your movie in the county, plus what benefits DeKalb receives from your production dollars. Shelbia also tells us about the great programs the Commission has in place to help current filmmakers and future filmmakers.
