The Floyd Country Store was hopping Wednesday night with music and dancers. A Wednesday night Jamboree? Not quite. It was filming for the movie, Geographically Desirable, current on location in Floyd. The extras commissioned for the film learned that movie making is a time-consuming affair with multiples takes and attention to detail. Even though, many […]
For the second year in a row, a theatrical film is being shot in Floyd. Location shooting for Geographically Desirable is underway on the streets and in places like Oddfellas and The Floyd Country Store this week.
