Major rumors are swirling about the NC Film Crew. Apparently, they deserve kudos and candy canes. The locations department of Sleepy Hollow decided to give back this year to complete strangers. They took donations from the hundreds of crew members working on Sleepy Hollow, every department, and together they raised $1000! They headed to Toys R Us and played Secret Santa, secretly paying off 18 layaway plans at the toy store. I called the production office for confirmation. As an added bonus, the store manager informed one of the crew members that Toys R Us is also going to make a matching donation to Toys For Tots! Now if that doesn’t inspire you to pay it forward, dunno what will!
The ratings for last night’s episode of Sleepy Hollow will come out later today – I will give you the full report in a separate blog on how The Golem performed. The Sleepyheads are running two units, both filming on the lot today.
Cutie Pie, Hunter, with Wilm on Film, released the Under the Dome dates. Looks like they will open offices on January and production will begin in March. And for the record, give some kudos to Hunter. He is a lot like me, underpaid, an army of one and collecting a lot of great production news. Ha! You go boy!
Reminder: I know I’ve talked about this a lot, but it has been a while. If you got a really cool or interesting property, and think it would be a great location for film, contact the Wilmington Film Commission at (910) 343-3456 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Properties can be anything from a large lot, warehouse, barn to a farm, restaurant, shop, or simply your house.
Don’t be confused, yes there is a second petition for you to sign. They decided we should have a petition that focused strictly on ending the sunset. I agree, so yes you have one more petition to sign, but as you know it only takes 20 seconds or less to do so! SIGN PETITION NOW!
