A recent Friday was not a typical end-of-the-week kind of day for the Avocet neighborhood.
Instead of a wind-down day before the long Memorial Day weekend, the neighborhood was filled with actors, cameras and directors in the Peachtree Corners subdivision preparing to shoot a TV commercial.
Signs at the subdivision entrance gave a clue that something big was going on with directional signs for trucks, crews, etc. Large trucks and trailers were parked along the side streets to accommodate the actors and film crew.
But the neighbors took it in stride, enjoying the moment as they watched the street crawling with some 35 film crew setting up cameras and props while some 15 actors waited in the shade nearby until they were called.
Avocet resident Victoria Clearfield who lives near the subdivision entrance stood nearby in the shade of a neighbor’s tree watching the activity.
