Big questions and many of them from Monday night’s premiere of Under the Dome.  Perhaps this is the one I have heard the most: “Why don’t they just dig their way out?!”  That question will be answered this Monday night.  The people of Chester’s Mill are shooting at the old cement factory in Castle Hayne.

So what is the cast talking about?

Nicholas StrongNicholas Strong @NicholasStrong – Thanks to our crew who keep us moving along & on schedule #Underthedome We love you and your effort is always appreciated!   
Mackenzie Lintz Mackenzie Lintz ‏@mackenzielintz – Absolutely LOVING all these storm clouds here in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina!
dean norrisdean norris ‏@deanjnorris – Spectacular, scary awesome lightning storm at Wrightsville beach. I MEAN BEAUTIFUL Thank god DOMA gone, cause I wanna f***ing marry you.

MULLET ALERT:  Danny McBride and his Eastbound and Down crew are staying out of the rain, shooting on the lot again today.
scottparksOn to the local front of filmmaking.  The short film, “Disposable Generation” is looking for extras tonight through Sunday.  The cast includes some great local actors including Devin Mcgee, Scott Parks (Vampire Diaries), Tara Williams, Zach Pappas, and Ashleigh Lineberry.  They are in need of 25 extras aged 18-30 for the weekend for a house party scene.  This  exploratory short narrative “meanders through a handful of arrogant, hollow Gen-Y’ers as they navigate their inherited anxieties, their layered philosophies, and ultimately, their excuses to carry on as they are.”  If you are available, email with the subject like : “TDG -extra”.  This is a nopay gig, but know that you are supporting local filmmakers!

UC_Poster_1_copy.largeAlso handsome local boys, Dominic Santana and Chaysen Beacham, are asking for your support with their project, The U.C.  They have 13 days to go on their kickstarter for this police drama. “With the fall of criminal organizations another rises in it’s place. To counteract this this recurring problem, the FBI sanctions a classified experiment to raise one headed by their own U.C. and controlling major crime. (Under Cover)”

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you tomorrow morning and every weekday morning at 7:30am & 8:30am LIVE on Sunny 104.5.  Got Scoop?  Email me:  Or message me on Wilmywood’s FB .  Or just post your comments below!  Until then, that’s a wrap!
