New regulations set minimum fees for Hollywood film crews in Hall County


A revised, less-restrictive resolution regulating Hollywood filming in Hall County quickly cleared the Board of Commissioners on Thursday.

The original regulations included a $500 daily fee for road closures and a $1,500 daily fee for use of the Hall County Courthouse. The resolution unanimously approved on Thursday only requires film crews pay a $100 daily fee and a $75 application fee while leaving open the option for steeper fees “considering the duration and scope of any particular project,” the ordinance states.

Payments are due before the start of a project when the application from the county is issued.

Stacey Dickson, president of the Lake Lanier Convention and Visitors Bureau, told the Times on Thursday that she’s pleased with the new resolution, which is “very general in its scope and allows for flexibility in permitting based on the project’s requests,” she said.
