The film advisory committee hosted a panel discussion at City Hall to answer questions from residents regarding listing their property for movie set locations and getting into various aspects of the movie business.

The six-member panel included LaRhonda Sutton, who owns Entertainment.gov, an entertainment consulting firm; Dee Dee Murray, production manager for the DeKalb Entertainment Commission; and film location scouts, Taneka Maxwell and Albert Cooper.

Residents engaged in conversations covering topics such as job creation and strategies for bringing more film projects to Stonecrest.

The panel culminated the evening at the Pizza Bar, where guests networked and interacted with the film professionals.
