UnderTheDome_Alex_Koch03102014Yesterday, Under the Dome was shooting downtown and a 2nd unit went to Southport.  I have to say Alexander Koch looked fabulous in uniform yesterday.  A little more about the downtown Stage8location.  My sources tell me that the location they are using is a vacant store front waiting to be rented.  So again, NC Film is putting money into the local economy.  Today they are back at EUE/Screen Gems.  Stage 8 is where the magic will happen with Mike Vogel, Colin Ford and Mackenzie Lintz just to name a few,  rocking their acting skills today. Looks like they will be on the lot for the next couple of days.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 03/04/2014 Max Steel Opens Offices, Under the Dome’s 1st Day, Secrets & Lies, and more.

It was a great first day Under the Dome.  The set in Burgaw was filled with CBS peeps and of course, as expected, they had a visit from Neal Baer and Stephen King himself. King, of course, was his typical humorous self yesterday.  If you haven’t seen this yet, it’s short, sweet and hilarious!

But perhaps the most noted part of the day was how they kicked off their first morning of season two.  It was with a moment of silence for Sarah Elizabeth Jones.

UTDSarah

Their slates still branded with her name as well as a crane in large red taped letters.  They made sure crew members took on the responsibility of looking out for each other as well as themselves.  The rain finally had its way in the early afternoon, so they made a company move to the stage, at beautiful Screen Gems Studios, where they will be this morning.

Day two resumed for ABC’s Secret & Lies, but the rain didn’t stop them from filming Ryan Phillippe in what will be Ben’s  morning jog that changed his life forever.  The very social producer Aaron Kaplan tweeted:

Shanley CaswellYesterday, we finally got a casting announcement.  Congrats to our latest stars. Shanley Caswell and Aimee Garcia will join the cast of what was once called the Red Zone is now back to its original vague title, The Untitled Nikki Tuscano Project.  Shanley Caswell is making her way back to Wilmywood, as she was just recently here for The ConjuringShe will play Holden’s daughter, a “cute but slightly awkward teenager with a lively interest in world affairs.”

tscc3

Max Steel has officially opened offices here in Wilmington, but it is not at Screen Gems Studios. I’m not sure if they want their office info released yet, so holding off for the moment.  But I can give a nice warm welcome to the office staff!

Secretary-Sharon-DeckerThanks to WWAY for shooting me this over yesterday.  It seems as though Secretary of Commerce Sharon Decker wants to ease our minds when it comes to the NC Film Incentives.  She believes the incentives won’t be terminated but cannot assure us if they will remain the same. Well, no one really can.  Only the May vote can tell us that.  And if they keep them but decide to enact any changes, that could lead to a temporary lapse.  So, everything is simply up in the air at the moment.  However, as reassuring as Decker sounds, we need to continue to contact our legislators about keeping the incentives intact, because even a short lapse could be devastating for North Carolina.  I do appreciate her addressing the issue though because it affects 1000s of us here in NC.  READ MORE NOW

A lot of people are also asking how Joyce Gilliard is doing.  She is the fabulous hair stylist that has worked here in Wilmington often (Sleepy Hollow, The Conjuring).  She was up for tweeting this morning.  She let everyone know how sad she is and just how devasting it was to go through it all.  She also cleared up a few things.
“I was hit by the train and not the debris. The worst day in my life. I will need counseling. My coworker died beside me.”
She said that she has metal and pins holding her arm together.  Lots of love and prayers to Joyce.  She is being released from the hospital today.

She has been cast as Detective Andrea Cornell, who is watching  Ben Garner (Ryan Phillippe) like a hawk, after he discovers the body of a 4 year old boy while out on a morning run.  Her character has been describes as being “incredibly professional, hard to read who can come across as intentionally odd with a disconcerting calm who is often if not always the smartest person in the room.(Source:THR).

Finally, I gotta say that WECT’s Justin Smith did a great job on this story including his follow up.  It blows my minds how some of the people in the highest positions are absolutely clueless when it comes to the film industry, an industry that is one of the top 10 largest in our state.

“We must educate the state for the sake of the slate!” ~ The Wilmywood Daily 

1514995_524155091025820_1845409132_nRichard Lindenmuth, who is interim CEO of the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina, made some comments, that A) put many NC Film supporters in a panic and B) downright pissed those supporters off.  I think the top comment that put so many in a state of bafflement, irritation, fury, anger, wrath, outrage, indignation, temper, spleen, resentment, annoyance, vexation, displeasure.  Read this statement then pick the word that best suits you!

“We have a beautiful landscape. That’s a wonderful incentive. We have friendly people,” he said. “We’ve got lots of good reasons why people should be here. And at the end of the day, if it’s only a dollar here, a dollar there for an incentive, I don’t think that’s a make or break for a reason why we would be in North Carolina.” 

Yeeaaahhhhhh….

Now after the heat flushes away from your face and you take a deep breath, please know, he does NOT have the final say when it comes to incentives, our politicians do.  So, don’t panic.  We did not lose the war.  It’s just an obstacle that we will not let stand in our way.  It’s a sign that we need to do whatever we can to educate this man (and our legislators across the state). When the impact study comes out, which will be soon, it will help him understand just how much film brings to this state, for the people of this state. He made some other comments you need to read as well (I have the link below). And for the love of God, someone please explain to this man these two things.

1) Locations and nice people don’t bring filmmakers to our state.  That was so 15 years ago. Sure, it helps, but that is not the primary reason why they come anymore.  We are competing with 44 others states let alone Canada and the UK.  Prod Cos send their accountants first, not location scouts. SOMEONE EMAIL HIM THIS: So Why does North Carolina need film incentives anyway?

2) Contracted workers that work in the film industry in NC, LIVE HERE!  Only a small percentage, come and go.  And that small percentage spends money in our state.

READ THE ARTICLES FROM WECT!  Great job Justin!

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY 12/26/2013 – Under the Dome, Sleepy Hollow and More.

Good morning! I hope you had an amazing Christmas with the ones you love! Let’s see what we have for the day.  We’ll start off with some Colin Ford love and some Under the Dome adoration.

fanshare

I would like to thank FanShare.com for siting my interview with Colin Ford on the set of Under the Dome in their article from December 23rd.  The article states that Colin Ford is definitely one “young actor to watch.”  We agree Fanshare!  Thanks for posting.

According to TV Canada, their “Top Draws in Canada in 2013”  include Under the Dome, putting them in the top 5, eh?

The Amazing Race Canada was the top draw, with an average audience of 3.5 million. The Big Bang Theory was second, with 3 million viewers, and The Amazing Race 22 and 23 third with 2.5 million viewers. Under the Dome (2.43 million) and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D(2.41 million) round out the top 5.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 12/13/2013 – 3 Wilmywood Shot Flicks Make Success List, Casting call for Top Model and Holiday Parties

Box Office Mojo’s Ray Subers reveals the Top 10 Box Office Success Stories in 2013 as part on IMDb’s Year in Review.  Three Wilmywood shot movies made that list which discusses over-performing blockbusters along with surprise hits:

IM3#1 of course is Iron Man 3 – Ray says, “While Iron Man 3 was the top movie of the year at the domestic box office (over $409 million), the real upside was overseas, where its $806 million haul was more than double that of its predecessor. Worldwide, the movie’s $1.2 billion total ranks fifth all-time. ”

werethemillers#6 We’re the Millers – Ray writes,  “Benefiting from good scheduling and a strong premise, road trip comedy. We’re the Millers got off to a solid start in early August. The movie then held well thanks to strong word-of-mouth, and ultimately became the highest-grossing movie of August 2013. To date, it has earned over $150 million at the domestic box office. ”

ConjuringComing in right behind one of the best comedies of the year is The Conjuring at #7.  This is definitely on the surprise list, surpassing all expectations.  “The Conjuring wrapped up its domestic run with $137.4 million, which made it the top supernatural horror movie in over a decade. ”

Meanwhile, state legislators have film incentives on the list to talk about today as they explore ways to make up for $600,000,000 of lost revenue.

State Rep. for Columbus, Robeson, and parts of Bladen Counties, Ken Waddell,  is on the Revenue Law Study Committee and when it comes to film incentives he said he would like to see state lawmakers increase them, since the film industry affects almost every county in our region. Amen brother!  Let’s hope all ears are open today!
“A part of Revolution was filmed in Chadbourn. There’s been some other filming going on in Whiteville and in other places. Filming is really important. It provides a lot of jobs to a lot of people. That helps small businesses pass the bucks around,” said Waddell.  READ THE STORY FROM WECT

Yesterday, Eastbound and Down release a tease for the season finale.  What?  Finale, you say?  I know, time is flying!  But there are a few left until we reach that point.  No doubt we all want to see the tease anyway!

Also during Cucalorus, Post 1200 invites you to stop by their open house Thursday-Sunday.  So many stars have passed through here for some post work and it was also the production office for Hallmark’s Christmas in Conway.  They will be doing some screenings and giving a tour of the facility along with some coffee and munchies!
