Tybee residents and businesses prepare for Hollywood

By Melanie Ruberti - bio | email

TYBEE ISLAND, GA (WTOC) - A Production Manager and location scouts spoke to those who will be directly impacted by the filming. The meeting was closed to the public as the crew gave owners and residents specific dates, times, and places where Miley Cyrus will be filming.

Most of the shooting for the movie will take place on private property and along the Tybee beach and pier. But the island will still be open to the public.

"People are still going to be able to get to and from Tybee, just as they always have," said Jay Self, director of Savannah Tourism and Film. "It's not going to be crazy, so people should be able to go to the beach and have fun."

Movie crews will not be filming on weekends, and they said they will never close the beach for shooting, which will continue through September.
