“We already know the incredible value that lies in Augusta—that’s why we expanded our presence into downtown earlier this year—and we’re glad to see others taking notice of just how much Augusta has to offer,” said James Heffner, downtown Augusta commercial banker and movie extra.
In total, eight Augusta locations were included in the filming, including First Community Bank, Shaw's Sunshine Garden, Doubletree Inn, Augusta Museum of History, St. Paul's Church, Bethlehem Advent Church and two private residences; one in the Harrisburg Neighborhood and one off of Central Avenue.
The bank is thrilled to have played a role in the Warner Bros. film directed by and starring Clint Eastwood and is excited to partner with Film Augusta whose initial work, dating back to April, helped bring the film to Augusta.
“Hosting the production of The Mule in Augusta was a huge opportunity for the city,” said Jennifer Bowen, Film Liaison with Film Augusta. “It provided an opportunity to introduce Augusta to key film industry executives, created direct visitors spending and helped promote Augusta as a film destination.”Film Augusta is the official film liaison for the City of Augusta and the Camera Ready Designee for the Georgia Film, Television and Digital Entertainment Office and is a division of the Augusta Convention & Visitors Bureau.
