Johnson County is a certified Georgia Camera Ready county. An official ceremony will take place in the fall to welcome us into the Camera Ready Program. We are receiving requests for locations being sought by the GA film locations board. One of those just came in. Does Johnson County have a house that looks haunted that would fill the following description: spooky-looking, aged/run down (but habitable) and preferably be out in the country or have lots of land around it.

If you know of such a house (similar to the one pictured), please photograph it and reply to this web site  along with your contact information and the location of the property.

Thank you very much,
Rebecca Lovett
Camera Ready Committee of Johnson County

The Scenes of Johnson County Photo Contest sponsored by Better Hometown of Wrightsville, announces the winning photographs. Sammy Hall’s
two photos of buildings in downtown Wrightsville were chosen as 1st and 2nd place winners over other entries. The contest was held in an
effort to obtain photos for the Georgia Camera Ready Program, which allows production companies to view scenes of Georgia’s authentic landscapes and
downtowns for possible film and TV productions. Most of Sammy’s entries focused on Wrightsville’s historic downtown buildings. Congratulations Sammy!
