Why Zebulon?

It seems a fair question, but if the answer expected is some dirty revelation about this wonderful community in North Carolina, it will be disappointing. Zebulon, NC was selected solely through chance by Raif Wolfe. Seeing the sign for Zebulon on his many road trips on I-95, the name just captivated him. During one commute Raif decided to take a detour and check out this place called Zebulon. What he found was a great community with such diversity and friendly people that it made sense that it be the setting for this project. It was such an impressive locality that even after photographing and filming areas for site references the town name made it into the title.
