Okay, for all of those who follow the blog from out of state and out of the country, this sneak peek shows a lot of fabulous footage of downtown Wilmington, NC aka Chester’s Mill aka Zenith! Love this scene! Mike Vogel and Max Ehrich have incredible chemistry! I’m really digging Max’s acting chops. He’s my instant favorite! Here’s what’s in store for us tonight!

Even though there are a few more additional days of filming, The Longest Ride had their wrap party this weekend in Elkin, NC at a place called 222 conveniently located a 222 East Main St.
“The people were so friendly, the music was great, and the food was delicious,” said one crew member. Local party buses were hired and took the crew to and from the party from the hotels so they didn’t have to drive.
“The landscape beauty, coupled with the welcoming spirit from the local folks in Winston-Salem, Dobson and Elkin made for very pleasant filmmaking during the last couple of weeks of The Longest Ride,” another crew member said. “Many of us are looking forward to return to both locations with our families for a little vacation. I really want my kids to see these places.”
ICYMI: Our friends from WGSR in Greensboro headed over there to see how the folks in the town feel about The Longest Ride shooting there. They get extra brownie points for using a drone for some of their gorgeous shots! A great piece! SEE VIDEO NOW.

Okay, I am so excited about Sleepy Hollow filming at my FAVORITE club(s) downtown. They will be over at Pravda/Sputnik today and they got a packed club with over 120 hip background actors. Now I can’t tell you who is in this scene, however, can you imagine Ichabod Crane’s reaction to music and dancing in 2014? Baaahahahaaa.
