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.”

We’re the Millers’ DVD Release is 4 days away on Nov. 19th and to celebrate, we’re giving away a “We’re the Millers” T-shirt!  Subscribe to the blog to enter to win!

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY 10/28/2013 – UTD, Sleepy Hollow, Hank and Jed

Bad_Grandpa_USAnother NC Film success! Our North Carolina shot Jackass comedy, Bad Grandpa took the #1 spot at the box office raking in a sweet $32 million.

Another Monday comes with NO Sleepy Hollow.  It is truly grueling.  But I guess it’s nice to know everything will be right as rain in 7 days time.  When we return we will meet the Sin Eater ft. John Noble!

But we need to get used to inconsistencies because the season finale will not be at its regular time either. FOX announced the date for the finale which will be on Monday, Jan. 20, 2014 at 8:00 p.m.

cowThe UTD cast and crew enjoyed the weekend across the pond at the London Comic Con. Most of the cast are still there enjoying themselves. Missing Under the Dome?  How about reliving some bits.  Just in time for Halloween, here are UTD’s 13 creepiest moments.

Our local boys from Hank and Jed Movie Pictures (creators of Battlefield Friends) will be at Game Stop in Monkey Junction in Wilmington, NC tonight to help celebrate the release of Battlefield 4.  Plus they are giving away an autographed DICE/BF4 T-shirt while they are there.  The Prod Co was contracted by EA Games to do a “briefing” about BF4.  Check it out.

They will also be doing to LIVE radio interviews today taking phone calls from fans of the show.  Modern Rock 98.7 (1pm EST) and Z1075 (1:30pm EST).  You can listen live, just click on the radio station web sites.
