More So. Ga counties deemed camera ready

More South Georgia counties now carry the distinction of being camera ready.

Colquitt, Sumter, Cook, and Randolph County were added to the list of Georgia camera ready counties.

This means film and ad companies can use sites such as the Olympic diving well in Moultrie as a venue.

Colquitt County officials say this will have a positive impact on the county's economy.

"It is a huge impact on the community when an organization comes and films on their site. It brings jobs to the area. It brings money to the local economy. It stimulates and drives the success of, not just the movie itself, but the community that it's being filmed in," said Vice President of Marketing for Moultrie-Colquitt County Chamber of Commerce Terry Shuler.

Georgia-filmed movies slated to hit theatres in the coming months include a remake of "Footloose" on October 14 and "Wanderlust" starring Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd.
