Movie makers use Oconee farm as key location in feature film


In the gray shade of an old barn, Jason London climbed into the seat of a tractor, wiped his face with a red handkerchief, then suddenly grasped at his chest as his face contorted, as if in pain.

London did it again and again and again before taking a break. Mimicking a heart attack several times for the benefit of a camera crew making a movie can be tiring. The 44-year-old actor finally walked out of the barn and, alone, nursed a cigarette on this foggy, humid morning on a farm south of Watkinsville.

London, a long-time actor who had his first big break with the 1993 movie “Dazed and Confused,” was among the cast and movie crew members filming scenes for the feature film “Full Count.” The movie is expected to debut in theaters in 2018.

At least two-thirds of the movie will be shot at locations in Oconee County, said the movie’s director and scriptwriter Robert Eagar of Atlanta. The movie is his directorial debut.
