WILMINGTON, NC: Crew Call for ‘The Choice’

A crew call is officially out for the Nicholas Sparks adaptation, The Choice.

The Nicholas Sparks feature, The Choice, is now accepting crew resumes. Send your resumes to: TheChoiceProduction@mail.com with your position in the subject line.  Production is slated to begin October 13th.  This project will shoot in Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach.

Along with Nicholas Sparks, it looks like Theresa Park and Peter Safran will be producing.  Welcome back to both!  Peter was here not long ago producing The Conjuring. Theresa didn’t have too much time in between shows as she was just here working on the other Sparks movie, The Longest Ride. Same goes for Mark Garner who has been named Production Designer yet again.  Congrats!

The UPM is our fabulous local  guy Chris Bromley, who we all know and love. Behind the scenes, he’s actually been working on The Choice for months now.  Before this Sparks flick, he was the UPM for the TV pilot Red Zone, and the Wilmywood shot Tammy and The Conjuring.

Directing is Ross Katz.  Ross is a Oscar and Emmy nominated director/producer.  He won the DGA award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Movies for Television/Mini-Series for Taking Chance (2009). This will be his first gig in Wilmywood.

Production is set to begin October 13th and will have a 30 day run.

Two neighbors, Travis  Parker and Gabby Holland, become more than just friends in a small coastal town in North Carolina.

We need to go National. Let’s do this!

Indeed it does. A few people have approached me over the past couple of days asking why the large media networks aren’t covering the battle we are facing.  In the scheme of things, we might feel it is bigger to us because we live and breathe it.  However, we hear about all kind of things in the daily National News that is irrelevant to us.  So, great thinking, folks!  I think over the weekend, we should write a message to some news networks and shows and let them know about the war that is waging in our state.  Tell them what is at stake, tell them your story.

It is getting some press however.  Check out our awesome UPM, Chris Bromley (and Dan) in P3 Update. READ NOW!

I think Jon should know about his show’s “abuse” of the NC film incentives, according to the Governor, don’t you? (Missed it?  Read all about it!)
