Nelson County, Virginia
Producers and crews finished up their shoot Wednesday evening in Schuyler, Virginia where they have been involved in a video production with Nelson County native, Earl Hamner, Jr. We first told you about the production in this post. Earl was the creator of the long running television series The Waltons. Actor Richard Thomas played the part of John Boy. The character was loosely based on Hamner’s childhood experiences growing up Schuyler when The Great Depression was hitting the country hard.
“Tim Macabee of FC productions in Nashville and Ray Castro from Morristown, NJ were involved in organizing and producing the biography. Castro has produced several Waltons reunion events and Macabee has produced Jimmy Fortune concerts. They hope to finish by July for Earl’s birthday. The crew has been doing interviews and shooting interiors and exteriors at the Hamner house, in addition to talking to friends, and relatives,”Woody relayed to us while shooting some photos in Schuyler this week.
We’ll keep you updated as we know more about the release of the biography later this year.
