If you were a fan of Discovery Channel’s Auction Kings, then you will be thrilled to know that a similar reality show is soon to begin filming in Loganville – and Cindy Shook of Auction Kings fame will be front and center.
Braxton Roberts, owner of Braxton’s Auctioneering in Loganville, has announced to his customers that his auction house was approached by Lumbee River Productions about filming a reality TV Show at his business.
“After weeks of evaluation and consideration, we have agreed to allow a promo trailer to be filmed at Braxton’s,” Roberts said, going on to assure his customers that their needs will be taken into consideration during this process. “My No. 1 consideration is you, our customer. It is because of you that we have been in business for the past 30 years.”
Roberts said that permission will be obtained for anyone who may be filmed, even if in the background.
Bryan Crespo, CEO and president of Loganville-based Lumber River Productions, said once the promo trailer has been filmed, it will be marketed to the Discover Channel or possibly A & E for a similar reality show to the Auction Kings.
“Cindy Shook who used to be with the Auction Kings is now with Braxton’s and she is very familiar with their style of shooting,” Crespo said. “We will begin shooting on April 26 and will be shooting until about May 6.”
Crespo said Lumbee River Productions is a 501 (c) 3 company that gets grant money to offer the opportunity for students to learn about filming for free.
“They learn how to work the camera and all aspects of the industry. It may be a troubled youth, someone we can help find his or her place in life,” Crespo said. “With this show, we are kicking it off with a contest to name the show as a way to get the community involved. When it’s done, we hope to have changed the saying, ‘Where’s Loganville’ to ‘Here’s Loganville.’”
Roberts said the winner of the “Name the Show” contest will receive a $200 Visa gift card.
“Deadline for the name submission will be May 1st at midnight and the name reveal will take place at the May 6th auction,” he said. “Braxton’s will still be the name of the business, but the show would not be called that. They are planning for the show to be a cross between American Pickers and Auction King. The name needs to be a national name.”
Braxton’s has had it’s own Youtbube “How much is it worth” antique show in the past.
Roberts and Crespo are asking the community to come up with a name and turn the entries in to the auction desk at Braxton’s or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. He is also asking if anyone has quality or unusual items they would like to consider selling on the auction to please contact email@example.com.
