ACVB Assists Production Team with New Film in Augusta's River Region
Friday, July 14th, 2017
Production of Untitled Diffusion Project, the working title of a film, is being shot in Augusta and Columbia County beginning July 17 – August 4.
Untitled Diffusion Project is being produced by Digital Diffusion, LLC which is located in Los Angeles, CA.
Untitled Diffusion Project will star two well-known lead actresses and is being directed by Jeffery G. Hunt.
Various locations around the Augusta River Region will be utilized. It is a closed set, meaning it is not open to the public at any time.
The Augusta Convention & Visitors Bureau worked with members of this production company in the past for the filming of SiREN in Augusta in 2015. SiREN producer Jude S. Walko said, “We had such a great experience shooting here that I highly recommended brining Untitled Diffusion Project to Augusta.”
“We are excited to be assisting Untitled Diffusion Project with many of their needs ranging from filming locations, to office space, to lodging and more,” said Barry White, ACVB CEO & President. “While word of mouth is powerful in any industry, it is perhaps even more influential in film. We look forward to ensuring another positive experience here so that this production company will continue to return and will encourage others to film in Augusta as well.”
Additionally, the ACVB is working closely with the Augusta Regional Film Office on this project, ensuring local crew members and industry professionals are aware of opportunities to be hired.
