Filming A Short Comedy in Stone Mountain City

"Past Due," a production of Philmworks, shot scenes at Buddy's Mart on Main Street on Monday.

So it's not Arnold Schwarzenegger, but the City of Stone Mountain still had lights, camera and action on Monday.

At Buddy's Mart on Main Street, a film crew and actors withstood the chilly fall winds to shoot scenes for "Past Due" a short comedy that will be shopped as a television pilot, explained writer-director-production company owner Zack Collins of Philmwurks.

"It's about an out-of-work collections manager who lands a job at 'Almos Yours Rent-to-Own," Collins said. The character has 24 hours "to collect on the company's toughest account or he's going to lose this job."

Comedian and actor Karlous Miller, 29, whose work includes appearances on the Mo'Nique Show, plays the repo-man. He told Patch his character is "scheming" and will "sell a dime for a dollar" if he can.
