This summer when we found the most perfect studio space we had no idea what was ahead in our future. All we knew was that we found a large space in a perfectly rustic building with lots of storage, a great area to meet with brides and a room just for doing projects. It is on a quiet serene street in Haralson which is only five miles south of Senoia, Georgia.
Well, that quickly changed as we became a filming location for The Walking Dead. I am a huge fan of the show so you can only imagine how excited I was to have this happening right outside our front door.
Now that the season is in full swing and they have finished filming for season 3, I thought it would be safe to share some of those moments with you.
This was probably one of my favorite moments.
We couldn't believe all the equipment and the amount of work that goes into setting up to film an episode. This is our side parking lot.
My son Noah was home from school "sick" and had to come to work with me.
My husband got to take a few hours off of work to come down and "help" us at work.
I wish we had security like this!
You can't even imagine how hard it is to concentrate and work with "Rick Grimes" sitting right outside your window.
Then during one of our biggest weeks of the year with two big weddings fast approaching, we cleaned out our two back rooms to hold and transform forty zombies and some other extras.
It was such an exciting and amazing experience. Something we would have never imagined happening at The Funky Shack. Who knows maybe it would be fun to have a zombie wedding right here at a filming location. We would most definately be up for that one!
If you are interested in having an event at The Funky Shack give us a shout.
