The Rockdale City Council adopted guidelines to make Rockdale "film friendly". The guidelines require anyone wanting to film a movie, television episode, commercial or training film to submit an application to the city manager. The guidelines give the city manager the authority to close streets or restrict, if necessary, the use of any public property during the filming. The guidelines do not restrict or give the city manager any authority over the filming of private property--those matters would be between the filming company and the property owner. There are no fees for submitting an application or filming in the city of Rockdale. For more information, download a complete copy of the guidelines (PDF).
