Film productions large and small may find several unique locations in the Johnston County area.

Film productions in North Carolina continue to be great economic drivers for the local economy and Johnston County is just becoming recognized for our rural landscapes, historic homes, and vintage downtown street-scapes.  Several independent films have been shot in Smithfield, with two recently shot at the County Courthouse pictured above.

For consideration of filming projects, the following are examples of outstanding locations for your next project -- we look forward to working with independent producers, low budget or sky's the limit budgets....just give us a call at 1-800-441-7829.  Check out our image library for more shots.
