A northwest Knoxville high school graduate was back in town over the weekend to film a movie at his former high school.
Tony Pauletto, 2006 Karns High School graduate, came back home to shoot a movie for his independent film company, Roadside Dragon Pictures.
Pauletto even hired some local talent to help with the movie making and said he would love to see a little more Hollywood near Dollywood.
"I want to continue to write for this town. I want to continue to work on projects for this town. I just met a great crew for the first time that work out of Nashville, and I've got people from Knoxville. Tennessee's a great state, and it should get its due as far as the arts," Pauletto said.
After high school, Pauletto graduated from the Los Angeles School of Film before working on Roadside Dragon Pictures and starting this newest project.
