By Oz Online | Published on May 24, 2024

A filming crew has descended on Wrens, Georgia to film for “The Observance,” a psychological thriller created by Beyond Casual Media in Augusta. 

“It’s about a woman who slips into a coma and six years later she wakes up to find out that her family has pretty much entered a cult and she’s now trying to challenge the cult, fight for her family and she gets her life back,” explained one of the film’s producers, Karl King.

Scenes are being filmed at various locations around Augusta, including Perry’s Landing in Hephzibah, Rhinehart’s Oyster Bar in Augusta, and Thurman Dam.

Written by Amy Rhinehart Bailey and Robert Hollocks, this film is the fourth creation by Augusta’s Beyond Casual Media. Their first project, “Encounter,” a science fiction flick starring Luke Hemsworth, received the Best Independent Movie Award at the 2022 Saturn Awards.

“In Atlanta and Dublin (Ireland), where I work, people are just so used to filming. It’s so nice to come to a place where everyone is excited about the film coming in and they want to help. We’ve met so many amazing local people who have helped us with locations or finding vehicles,” added King. “We’re looking at doing other projects in the Augusta area.”
