NC FILM – MID-YEAR ESTIMATES FOR 2014: $268 MILLION IN SPENDING, 19,000 JOB OPPORTUNITIES 

NCFILM OFFICE

PRESS RELEASE: NC Film Office Releases Mid-Year Estimates for 2014

Production plans reflect $268 million in spending, 19,000 job opportunities

RALEIGH, NC (July 25, 2014)  — Six months into 2014, the North Carolina Film Office reports an estimated production tally of $268 million in direct in-state spending and nearly 19,000 job opportunities for North Carolinians.

As of July 15, more than 40 productions had filed “intent to film” forms indicating that they have filmed or will film in the Tar Heel State. The resulting activity accounts for more than 3,300 production days spread across 35 of the state’s counties. The job opportunities include more than 3,000 crew positions for the North Carolina’s highly skilled film professionals, 500 well-paying talent opportunities and 15,000 background talent positions.

Highlights of the first half of 2014 include the return of production on the television series Under The Dome, Banshee and Sleepy Hollow and the upcoming new series Secrets & Lies as well as the studio feature films Max, The Longest Ride, Max Steel and the Untitled Armored Carproject.  Work has also been done on the independent films Ashby and Union Bound and national commercials for Biomet, Pepsi, and Xarelto plus lifestyle television shows Love It or List It and the Peabody Award winning A Chef’s Life.

The 2014 mid-year figures are a strong follow-up to 2013, which saw a record-breaking 5,000+ production days from more than 60 productions that created nearly 25,000 job opportunities, including more than 4,000 crew positions.  The 2014 mid-year figures eclipse last year’s total direct in-state spending mark of more than $254 million by productions.

During the past six years, productions have had a direct in-state spend of more than $1.3 billion.

The North Carolina Film Office is part of the state Division of Tourism, Film and Sports Development within the North Carolina Department of Commerce. Its primary responsibilities are to recruit productions to North Carolina by marketing the state’s assets, which include the film incentive, the crew base, established infrastructure and locations statewide. The NCFO also assists productions with securing permits and handling other logistics and works hand-in-hand with film commissions in the Wilmington, Research Triangle, Piedmont Triad, Charlotte and Western regions.

jasonmottBig Wilmywood birthday wishes to go out today! First off, happy birthday to North Carolina boy Jason Mott! You know Jason! He’s the guy who writes books when he isn’t writing poetry or racing cars. He wrote a little novel called The Returned and then it was turned into a TV show called Resurrection and it’s returning this fall to ABC. Mr. Mott has a new novel ready for pre-order called The Wonder Of All Things. Happy Birthday Jason!

Tom Mison BirthdayAnd of the horror, how did we forget to say “Cheers” to this guy on Wednesday! Our other Wilmywood birthday shout out goes to the one and only Tom Mison. In case you didn’t know, Tom plays Ichabod Crane on the FOX series Sleepy Hollow. (but you knew that didn’t you??)

Looks like one of our favorite local boys is packing his bags and taking a road trip.  Wilmington actor David Andrews has been booked a recurring role on The Whispers, from ABC Studios and Steven Spielberg’s Amblin TV. According to Deadline, it focuses on an “unseen force that is manipulating society’s most innocent – our children – to act in favor of its cause. As the kids unwittingly help this unknown enemy, the clock counts down in a suspenseful race to save humanity.”

David will play U.S. Secretary of Defense Frommer in a minimum 6-episode arc. The Whispers began production this week.  They will be shooting in Los Angeles and Vancouver.

Congrats David!  We love ya!
