THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 01/08/2015 LMGA recognizes NC Crew members!

Tammy might have been nominated for a Razzie, but it took in over $100 million at the worldwide box office. And we got some congratulations to give out to some NC Film peeps! The Location Managers Guild of America is recognizing our locals Mike Hewett and Lori Russell for Outstanding Locations in a Contemporary Film for the comedy. The awards ceremony will take place in Beverly Hills, March 7th! Awesome job Mike and Lori, but then again, we expect nothing less! Woo Hoo!

tAMMY_mIKE_mELISSATammy_Mike_MelissaMike was the location manager and Lori was the key assistant location manager. The LMGA only allows two people to be nominated and not the whole location department / team, but kudos goes out to the entire department!

And speaking of Tammy, last night at the People’s Choice Awards, Melissa McCarthy won for Favorite Comedic Movie Actress! Congrats lady!

So, Remember when Eastbound and Down was coming to a close and Danny McBride and Jody Hill announced a new show that was in development. Vice Principals. Yep – well before the film incentive wars, they were undoubtedly going to shoot it here in North Carolina. They even scouted the area for the show. After we lost the film incentive battle, however, they were uncertain as to where they would open up offices. Well, now we think we know. My sources are telling me Danny McBride and Jody Hill’s team have opened up offices in Charleston for 18 episodes of the series. This is a show, MANY North Carolina Film Crew members were waiting for. As in hundreds. The General Assembly’s Long Session begins one week from today.

Under the Dome is just a few weeks away from opening up offices. I was told they will begin production on or around March 9th.
