“The industry has been good for small biz in NC. We can say to a studio: we have all that here. We don’t need to ship it.”~Dale Williams, UPM
“These incentives are absolutely crucial. If the incentives are not extended the way that they are presently, it will absolutely destroy the industry here,” said Rosin. “Without the incentive, you will be uprooting the lives of a lot of people.” ~Jason Rosin, IATSE Local 491
“I dare anyone to find better film crews than in Wilmington and North Carolina” ~Exec. VP Screen Gems Studio, Bill Vassar
“We have a legislation sunset in a few months, creating uncertainty-producers want to see is the sunset go away. Films and shows that are being planned 18 and 24 months out are not looking at North Carolina because they don’t know what is going to happen 18 months from now.”” ~Dale Williams, UPM
Enjoy the rest of your Cucalorus weekend! Lots of flicks to see! CHECK THEIR SCHEDULE NOW!
REMINDER: During Cucalorus, Post 1200 invites you to stop by their open house Thursday-Sunday. And since our casting lady Vanessa Neimeyer just moved into her swanky office there, she is sharing in the celebration! Her fun open house party will be today from 10am-3:30pm. So many stars have passed through Post 1200 for some post work and it was also the production office for Hallmark’s Christmas in Conway. They will be doing some screenings and giving a tour of the facility along with some coffee and munchies!
Just another day on Sleepy Hollow: One unit just left the Battleship NC completing episode 9 just as another unit arrived to start their day filming episode 10. Two units are filming today, one in Burgaw and the other on the lot at Stage 10.
