It’s no secret that Georgia is quickly becoming the go-to state when it comes to the television and film industry. At any given time, there are countless productions filming throughout the state and particularly in and around Atlanta, ranging from the insanely popular AMC zombie drama The Walking Dead to the comedy sequel Anchorman 2, and of course pretty much everything that Atlanta local Tyler Perry creates. Even the 1989 film Driving Miss Daisy, starring Morgan Freeman, Jessica Tandy, and Dan Aykroyd, used Atlanta as its backdrop.
Now wouldn’t it be great if there was some type of tour that took you to the hundreds of locations throughout the city that were featured in movies like The Hunger Games: Catching Fire or The Blind Side? Well, what do you know? That is exactly what our Atlanta Film Sites Tour does! On our Atlanta Film Sites Tour, guests hop aboard our luxury coaches for a three hour ride throughout the city to see firsthand where your favorite movies and television shows were filmed. Throughout the ride, guests have the opportunity to win fun prizes during trivia and see clips from the actual movies and shows right before they see the location! Every one of our tour guides are actors that have been on some of these very film sets. They’re able to give our guests behind-the-scenes stories that you can’t hear anywhere else!
Speaking of our tour guides, we would like to introduce one of our newest guides for the Atlanta Film Sites Tour. His name is Clyde. Clyde comes to us with a ton of set experience after working in more than 65 productions. Clyde has such a large background of work in the industry, we thought it would be fun to ask him a few questions so you can learn a little more about what he’ll be bringing to the tours!
What is your all-time favorite movie or television show? Currently, I have just finished watching Orange is the New Black, Season 2. I have a lot of favorite movies and shows, but one of the first movies I saw multiple times was Raiders of the Lost Ark. I enjoy black and white movies such as Double Indemnity and Casablanca.
What is your favorite production you have worked on? My favorite time on set was the 3 days I worked on Trouble with the Curve. It was a small set and all the principals were on set during that time. I sat right next to Clint Eastwood in 2 different scenes. Great memories.
What is your favorite stop on the Atlanta Film Sites Tour? The Goat Farm and Jackson Street Bridge
What are you currently working on? Goosebumps was the last project. There are plenty of other shows out there, but we’ll have to see what happens next.
You can meet Clyde and all of our awesome tour guides and expeditors on our Atlanta Film Sites Tour every Saturday at 10:00am! Tickets can be purchased through our website.
