WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD 09/11/2013 – Sleepy Hollow, Wilmington Film Commission, One Tree Hill item for sale and more

UTDSet062013_0306With the US Open eating up half of Under The Dome‘s regular time slot, CBS will preempt Crimetime for an encore airing of episode 12, “Exigent Circumstances” on Saturday night at 9pm.  Also, the final broadcast primetime ratings gave Under The Dome 1st place regardless of their numbers dipping to 9.72 million viewers.  But, if you factor in cable channels however, football was the winner.

sleepyNow, I’ve been waiting for this scene to happen for a week now!  Why?  Because of its killer location for Sleepy Hollow!  They will be wetting down the streets this evening  where they will be filming at the Kenan Memorial Fountain at 5th and Market.  Lots to see.


In the scene, a young boy wanders into town, EMT tries to help him and one of our heroes try to speak to him.   And guess who plays the little boy in Sleepy Hollow today!  Mackenzie Lintz (Under the Dome, Norrie)’s little bro Matt Lintz!!  Wilmywood just loves the Lintz family!  Yay!!!!  Way to go Matt! There will be 100 crew members and 30 extras hanging out with four of the cast members today.  Sleepy Hollow premieres this Monday!

WFCAnd speaking of great locations, do you own one?  The Wilmington Regional Film Commission wants your house…or barn…or store!  Well, they want to add it to their locations database.  As stated in their press release that came out yesterday:

In order to add to their existing database of 3,300 locations, the Wilmington Regional Film Commission will be adding a Location Scout to their team this fall. The Scout will be available to photograph local properties, in order to provide a broad idea of potential shooting locations to productions considering filming in the area.

“We are encouraging anyone with an interesting property – anything from a warehouse or a barn to a restaurant, shop, house or farm – to contact us.  If it’s appropriate we will send our Scout to take some photographs,” said Griffin.  “We’ll add it to our database, and if a production likes what they see, they will contact the owner directly.”

The Film Commission can be contacted at 910.343.3456 or commish@wilmingtonfilm.com.

The auction benefiting the Sunny 104.5 Caring for Kids at NHRMC should begin this afternoon.  As soon as everything is up, I will post it on a separate blog today!  Awesome items!
