Happy Monday my loves! Hope everyone had a great weekend, regardless of the surprisingly crappy weather we had on Sunday. Yuck!
The bright and colorful and of course slimy Kids Choice Awards were held over the weekend, and we had a Wilmywood contender. Though the Stark man couldn’t beat a girl with a bow for Favorite Movie or funny man Adam Sandler for Favorite Movie Actor, our Iron Man, Robert Downey, Jr. did nab the win for Best Male Buttkicker.
RDJ wasn’t the only Wilmywood star to head to the KCAs. RED ZONE star Stefanie Scott also made a stunning appearance.

The KCA’s weren’t the only ones handing out awards. The LMGA Awards were held over the weekend as well. Congratulations to Ilt Jones for winning the: Outstanding Achievement by a Location Professional – Feature Film for IRON MAN 3. IM3 had a more than a few shots done here in scenic Wilmywood, most memorably, the people of Wilmywood recall the stunt that required a crane and team of stunt professionals dangling out over the Cape Fear River to make the “escape from the airplane scene” happen. Many of our local talent and beloved EUE/Screen Gems crew worked on this feature and have nothing but the best to say about all the creative crew involved.
Location Managers and Scouts are extremely important members of the creative crew in film, television, commercials, music videos and print advertising. Theses team members find the settings that best represent the Producer, Director and Production Designer.
The locations managers are also responsible for the everyday management of the locations and often work long hours. These folks are the heart and soul of all the “little things” that can really add up very easily to A LOT of things. Permits, legalities, working with transportation and local law enforcement. These guys do it all!
With all that being said, Sarah Jones was remembered during the ceremony.
