How Are Filming Locations Picked In Georgia?


Downtown Roswell is a bustling square packed full of restaurants, shops and galleries. The surrounding city boasts lush parks and a rich urban landscape that positions it close enough to Atlanta to have quick access to city life but far enough out to steer clear of the hustle and bustle.

This diversity, combined with a healthy state tax incentive, makes cities like Roswell an ideal location for shooting movies and television shows. It’s also one of location manager Ethan Firestone’s favorites places to send a production crew.

Firestone got his start in location scouting by working on the movie “Selma.” Since then, he has worked on a slew of other film and television projects, including “MacGyver,” “The Accountant” and “Keeping Up with the Joneses.” He’s helped to transform the streets of Atlanta into New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago and to turn empty city parking lots into war zones in Afghanistan.
