New NC Tech Company on Hollywood’s A List

In the gridlock that is Hollywood’s move to mobile-first content an emergent North Carolina firm — CINC3D — may have just created the jet pack the entertainment industry wanted.

CINC3D were VIP invitees to the A-List Summit, Hollywood’s premiere gathering of mobile marketing, brands and entertainment thought leaders. CINC3D was invited by the Ayzenberg Group, creators of the key industry summit which connects thought leaders and luminaries.

CINC3D‘s new technology transports both production crews and fans onto sets and locations to experience their movie worlds through immersive, interactive, one-of-a-kind content.

“This is the future,” said Norwood Cheek, who is spearheading CINC3D‘s West Coast presence.

“Once you’ve experienced this on an iPad or an Oculus Rift,” he said, “you see how obviously useful it is to Hollywood. This will change the industry workflow forever.”

The CINC3D team, which included Vice President K. Dominic Cincotti, gave a number of private “Virtual Presence” demonstrations and fielded a number of requests for more off-site demos and meetings with top industry companies.

The A-List Summit included executives from from Lionsgate, Dreamworks Animation SKG, Seriously, Epic Games, Anthem Venture Partners, Tumblr, Magid Advisors, Buzzfeed, Nvidia, UberMedia, Awesomeness TV, Fiksu, Boomfeeder, Lifesum, App Annie, ion, Super Evil Megacorp, Plantronics, TextPlus, VideoAmp, Digital LA, and Spin Media, among others.

The keynote was delivered by Lorenzo di Bonaventura, producer of the blockbuster “Transformers” and “G.I. Joe” franchises, among many other films.

With a near consensus of A-List participants calling 2015 “The Year of Content Creation,” perhaps some of the most interesting advances came from CINC3D, which specializes in “cinematic immersion” — the only company at the A-List Summit and in the industry exploiting this space in mobile.

“We were pleased to be invited by the Ayzenberg Group to the A-List Summit,” said Shaun O’Rourke, Wilmington-based film crew member and CINC3D’s producer-immersive content, “and we’ve been pleased by the encouragement and excitement of so many back home, including Bill Vasser at EUE/ Screen Gems Studios and Johnny Griffin, the director of Wilmington Regional Film Commission.”

“We are happy to show North Carolina can have a significant impact on the entertainment industry through game-changing technology,” O’Rourke said.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 12/03/2014 – Natalie Zea is back, the locations, the irony

The overnight numbers were released yesterday. Sleepy Hollow ratings were up with a 1.5 4.50 M viewers.

Sleepy Hollow has two units running today. One at the sound stages, the other off N 15th St. There will be prop gunfire going off all throughout the day. Our Sleepyheads will be back downtown later this week too.

Blue Mountain State is back in Currie today. Bolden heads to Castle Hayne Road.

Secretary-Sharon-DeckerWell, I found this tidbit quite amusing. Yesterday, N.C. Commerce Secretary  Sharon Decker resigned with John Skvarla III, leader of the N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources, taking her place. Ironically, in January, she will be working in South Carolina in what? The film industry. She will become the new president of Nuray Media, a company that restores and preserves historic film and television footage using digital technology. She will also be a partner in the company.
