Gray was the location of the filming of a scene in an upcoming movie by Steve Balderson. The scene was directed by Jones Countian Neill Calabro.

The name of the movie is Culture Shock, and the filming took place at a house on Howard Roberts Road. Calabro said the cast was a well-rounded group with folks from Alabama, Atlanta, Albany, and Macon.

Balderson is a filmmaker from Kansas, and Calabro said he has been making movies for years. One of Balderson’s films, Firecraker, was even given two thumbs up by Siskel and Ebert. Calabro said the films tend to be adult-themed stories.

“I met Steve last year when his Karen Black movie, Stuck, played at the Macon Film Festival. After talking for a while, he asked me to direct a little scene for him for his movie The Casserole Club,” he said.

Calabro said the scene was a fake TV show to be watched by the characters in Balderson’s movie.

“My scene took place in the 1960’s...kind of a Brady Bunch family comedy spoof. The Casserole Club was released this year.  It starred Kevin Richardson, from the Backstreet Boys, and it recently was nominated for nine awards at New York’s film festival.”
