THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Brad and Courtney Wheeler of Thirdwheel Productions are no strangers when it comes to Downtown Thomasville.

The two lived in the City of Roses before they moved to Hollywood in the early 2000s.

While in Los Angeles, the Wheelers worked on films, TV shows, commercials, and music videos.

Now they’ve moved back to Thomasville and ready to give it some exposure.

The two are working on a new film called “Celeste” which is about a young man who is being followed by his dead wife.

Courtney is serving as the film’s producer and casting director, while Brad is the director.

“People are filming in Savannah, Atlanta, and everything all the time, but they don’t know that Thomasville is here. And it’s such a beautiful place to film,” she says.

The production crew is looking to film in different parts of the city, especially area cemeteries, plantation homes, and the city’s downtown.

Thirdwheel Productions expects to start filming in July and hopes to have the movie ready for the Covey Film Festival which is held in Thomasville.

The film’s producer says having the film featured in different festivals could showcase the city of Thomasville and grab the attention of other production companies.

In addition, the production company says the movie will bring learning opportunities for those interested in films.

Brad Wheeler is not only a director, but also a part-time film teacher at an area high school.

“Education is a huge component of what we’re doing. I teach part-time film at a local high school and so some of my kids from that school are able to come during the summer and work on the production,” he adds.

The Wheelers are also looking for to fill a few additional roles and need extras.

They will have an open casting call starting on Monday, May 23, 2016. Anyone who is interested should email the production company at thirdwheelprod@gmail.com
