Fountain Oaks Shopping Center in Sandy Springs is getting its 15 minutes of fame.
On April 26, a crew blocked off part of the parking lot to film a commercial for Toyota.
“This shot is of a lady coming out of grocery store with a bag boy helping her to her car,” said Justin Stewart, the second assistant director on the set.
Stewart said the crew arrived at 5:30 a.m. and began working at 6:30 a.m. for the one-day commercial shoot.
“With a storm coming in our day is potentially shortened,” he said. “We’ve got to have a fast day.”
Stewart said location scouts found the Fountain Oaks Shopping Center for the commercial, which will air throughout the southeastern United States.
“It’s just the look of the shopping center. The director liked it and the agency liked it,” Stewart said.
