Amelia island is a filmmakers fantasy....


Only minutes from a major airport;

The permitting process is easy to access;

Accommodations are top notch, from modest B&Bs, to a Ritz Carlton on the beach;

and where an entire community of seasoned extras awaits your call--on-time and ready to role.  


Amelia Island is a magical place who also knows her stuff...


Not to be outdone by some better known movie making places,

she recently staged an extras call that was second to none.


Amelia Island never gets left on the cutting room floor...  


Her deep, dark forests and Everglades style marshes will capture your imagination.

Her home-town celebrations and old gothic churches will make you proud.


Amelia defines "sexy with soul". She will romance you into remembering her every day of your life.
