ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Albany is drawing more interest from movie makers.   Disney has been scouting out possible locations for "The Odd Life of Timothy Green."   They've visited Albany several times and will soon return to take some test shots in our area.    

Lisa Riddle with the Convention and Visitors Bureau couldn't confirm Disney is coming, but she says now that Albany has been designated as a camera ready community, we are getting more interest from big time movie makers.

She said, "Any filming we could get in Albany, it would help tremendously for tourism and the economic impact on the city."    

Sherwood Pictures has helped put Albany on the radar of movie executives around the country after filming three successful movies here.   The church will release its fourth film soon.
