Over the weekend EUE/Screen Gems held their tours for the first time in over 3 years. Major success! Thank you to all the media outlets getting the word out. I have been getting more and more emails and messages from people who read the blog that are from out of state who love Under the Dome, Sleepy Hollow and of course the staple, Dawson’s Creek. They are heading to Wilmington this summer to see the sights and seek out the locations and pray they get a glimpse of our sophomore shows filming. TOURISM=$$$ Just sayin’. WANT TOUR DETAILS – GO NOW!
Under the Dome will be shooting on Chestnut St as well as Creacy Ave today. They head over to Burgaw tomorrow weather permitting.
Today we add The Sin Seer as well as FX’s How and Why to the mix. The Sin Seer will be on Shandy Lane today and our FX pilot is shooting on the sound stages today. Our handsome Revolution guy, Tim Guinee, shoots today, but he will already be leaving us. But he will leave something behind. One Armed Man is a short film that has graced SXSW and was very well received. And now it comes to us via the CFIFF and you can see it, Saturday, May 3rd at the Browncoat Theatre. The short film is directed by Tim and will be included in the 1pm film block. GET TICKETS NOW.

The NC Film Rally is just 7 days away. I cannot express how important it is that you show up AND bring everyone and yo mama! If you haven’t already, please CLICK join on the FB invite!! It will be Sunday, May 4th at 5pm on the Riverwalk at Market/Water.
Our friend and comedian Sean Webb passed away yesterday morning from cancer. Sean was a family man who brought joy to others through his life and through comedy. He was a huge part of Nutt St Comedy and he will be missed. There is an online fundraiser which was originally set up for all the medical bills for his treatment, now however, the family could really use your help. The fundraising site say, “Sean’s main focus throughout was to make sure his wife Christy and boys Nick and Christian, were taken care of. We would like to continue to fulfill that in memory of a great person.” DONATE NOW
