Macon doesn't look like a southern city I been told this before. Got the Rust Belt look.
After a big 2019 for filming in Macon, 2020 may be much of the same

Augusta is also getting some films made there because of its grimy, rust belt almost post apocalyptic look. It could easily stand in for Detroit or some other rust belt city. There is a huge abandoned mall on the southsideside that would have huge potential as a location for Walking Dead or a remake of Dawn of the Dead or any post apocalyptic movie or TV show. Though upper blocks of down have seen some revitalization there are still deaths of downtown with long blocks of abandoned boarded up buildings. Hollywood is not always looking for the wisteria filled genteel South that places like Savannah evoke. Often times they are looking for gritty, grimy and depressing looking locations. Augusta and Macon have a lot to offer Hollywood on that front
