Sleepy Hollow sets release date for DVD/Blu Ray

Fox Home Entertainment has FINALLY set the release date for Sleepy Hollow Season one.  Interestingly enough, it’s coming out on DVD/Blu Ray on the same date as Season one premiered on television in 2013.  Coincidence? I think not! Clever, so clever!

September 16th will be the day to get the sweet headless goodness!  Both versions (DVD and Blu Ray) will have some sweet bonus material including:

  • Welcome to Sleepy Hollow
  • Mysteries and Mythology: The Secrets of Sleepy Hollow
  • Deleted Scenes
  • The Corbin Files
  • Welcome to the 21st Century, Mr. Crane
  • The Horseman
  • The Horseman’s Head
  • Audio Commentaries
  • Gag Reel

How much for this bad boy?  Blu Ray is always more expensive so expect to pay $49.99 for the high-def version on 3 discs.  The DVD will cost you about 40 clams and you will get 4 discs.

 

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 12/02/2013 OJ’s Road to Hollow, Sleepy Hollow, Vote PCAs

ROADTOHOLLOWHappy Monday!  After a nice long weekend, I can tell you I actually woke up at 4:15am this morning without feeling like death!  Yay, go me!  Let’s see what’s going on in Wilmywood.  After talkin’ about it for months, Orlando Jones created his episodic adventure during his travels from California to Wilmington, NC.  And he named this epic journey, The Road to Hollow.  It’s a ” shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man who does not have a head.  Orlando Jones, a young loner on a crusade to champion the cause of the innocent, the helpless (and occasionally the headless), the powerless, in a world of shippers who operate above the law.”  Check out episode 1 below.

Tonight, we will get a rerun of Episode 2, Blood Moon, originally aired on September 23rd where Ichabod and Abbie try to determine which witch is which.  We will have to wait until next Monday, December 9th for Episode 10, The Golem.  And as far as shooting goes, both units will be at Screen Gems today.  Heads up, they sleepy folks will be out and about the rest of the week.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 11/20/2013 Fincannons win Artios, Pieces of Talent, Sleepy Hollow location revealed

Atkinson (NC) High SchoolGood Morning Peeps!  Let’s kick it off with a Scribble to the Scribe!

QUESTION: WE are trying to figure out what building is being shown as the Tarrytown Mental Hospital where Abbie’s sister is?  It is driving us nuts. Looks like old Topsail High School, but we’re not sure. Didn’t know who else to ask!  Thanks, from the folks at Wilmington and Beaches CVB

ANSWER: Great question and a popular one.  The exterior of the old Atkinson High School has been transformed into the Tarrytown Mental Hospital. It is located in Atkinson, NC.  As for the interior, some of the interior is the old school, some is a set on stage like Jenny’s room, and some is the old Brunswick hospital.  On a historical note, the school was used from 1924-1975 as a high school and then finally a middle school. Today, the building is used  for  auctions each second Saturday; and rented out for special occasions and  movie production.

PiecesMore congratulations for our local boy Joe Stauffer’s Pieces of Talent.  The Horror now has a total of 17 awards. The film’s most recent win was at the New York City Horror Film Festival where they took home:
Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography (all Joe Stauffer), and Best Actress ( Barbara Weetman )

Check out the Full Award List NOW!   The film stars  David Long, Kristi Ray, Barbara Weetman, Nate Panning, Jon Stafford and Taylor Kowalski.

MORE ABOUT PIECES OF TALENT:
Charlotte (Kristi Ray) is an aspiring actress struggling to find her big break, but until she does, she can look forward to a future of waitressing and living with her pushy mother. Between being harassed at work and pestered at home, salvation seems farther and farther away – until she meets David (David Long). Rescuing David from an aggressive bouncer, Charlotte finds out her new friend makes movies for a living, and she immediately forms a connection with him. David of course takes kindly to the pretty woman’s newfound friendship, and decides he’d love to work with Charlotte on his next project. Charlotte has no idea what kind of filmmaker David is though, as we find out that starring in David’s movie can really be a career killer – zing!  Pieces of Talent is now available for pre-order on DVD.

keepncThe state has been doing an independent impact study on how the film industry affects our economy here in North Carolina.  It began in September and should be done next week.  But results may not be out for another month or two.  I will keep you posted.

KeepNCFilm.org is asking you to make a 2 minute or less video about what it would mean to you if we lost NC Film and send them to your legislators.  They need everyone, cast, crew, vendors and small businesses who are affected by the industry.

homeland3It’s a damn good year for the Fincannons.  Congrats to Lisa Mae Fincannon and Craig Fincannon(Location Casting) who were up for three awards, and took home an Artios Award for Outstanding Achievement in Casting – Television Series – Drama with our NC shot TV series, Homeland.  The Casting Society of America hosted the 29th annual awards Monday night, which recognizes the year’s top casting directors.  This is the 3rd year in a row the Fincannons took home the prize from the Artios awards.  they won two in 2012 for Homeland (Outstanding Achievement in Casting – Television Series – Drama) and (Outstanding Achievement in Casting – Television Pilot – Drama) and in 2011 they won the award for Outstanding Achievement in Casting – Big Budget Feature – Comedy for Red.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 11/19/2013 We’re the Millers DVD, John Leonetti, Basecamp Luxe and more!

Good Tuesday Morning!  How about a fist bump for last night’s  Sleepy Hollow!  I will have the ratings report later today after 11am for the Necromancer.  The folks are shooting downtown at St. James Church on S. 3rd St.  Not too much sightseeing as they will be doing interiors today.

Gotta give some major kudos to DP John Leonetti.  He’s been working on Sleepy Hollow, but before that he was also DP on our smash hit supernatural flick, The Conjuring.  Now my sources have told me he has made the leap to director for The Conjuring 2!  Even though we are a tad sad it is not shooting here, congrats John!  Your crew members have deemed you one of the greatest guys to work with!

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 11/15/2013 State of the Slate Highlights, Cucalorus, Sleepy Hollow

The State of the Slate Panel was well received yesterday at Thalian Hall as part of Cucalorus 19.  It was a full house. If you missed it, there will be a webinar this Tuesday.  It is a free event but you must register via email.  Once you do, check your email for confirmation.  You will be able to log in when the event opens at 01:30PM EST on November 19, 2013.  The broadcast will start at 02:00PM EST on November 19, 2013.  REGISTER NOW! In the meantime, here’s the highlights from the panel yesterday:

“The industry has been good for small biz in NC. We can say to a studio: we have all that here. We don’t need to ship it.”~Dale Williams, UPM

“These incentives are absolutely crucial. If the incentives are not extended the way that they are presently, it will absolutely destroy the industry here,” said Rosin. “Without the incentive, you will be uprooting the lives of a lot of people.”  ~Jason Rosin, IATSE Local 491

“I dare anyone to find better film crews than in Wilmington and North Carolina” ~Exec. VP Screen Gems Studio, Bill Vassar

“We have a legislation sunset in a few months, creating uncertainty-producers want to see is the sunset go away.  Films and shows that are being planned 18 and 24 months out are not looking at North Carolina because they don’t know what is going to happen 18 months from now.”” ~Dale Williams, UPM

Enjoy the rest of your Cucalorus weekend!  Lots of flicks to see!  CHECK THEIR SCHEDULE NOW!

REMINDER: During Cucalorus, Post 1200 invites you to stop by their open house Thursday-Sunday.  And since our casting lady Vanessa Neimeyer just moved into her swanky office there, she is sharing in the celebration!  Her fun open house party will be today from 10am-3:30pm.  So many stars have passed through Post 1200  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!

Just another day on Sleepy Hollow: One unit just left the Battleship NC completing episode 9 just as another unit arrived to start their day filming episode 10.  Two units are filming today, one in Burgaw and the other on the lot at Stage 10.

OJA lot of people wonder if Captain Irving is good or evil.  I think we change our minds about him episodically.  Perhaps we should just ask the man who plays him, Orlando Jones.

“If you asking my mother, I am totally good.  If you ask my wife, I am completely evil.”  Check out what we can expect this Monday as we travel “Into Darkness.”
