‘Return to Tree Hill’ brings in BIG money for Wilmywood

Thanks to Eyecon for bringing the One Tree Hill Convention to Wilmington, NC for the second time in 2015. Wilmington (aka Wilmywood) of course was the filming location for the show for 9 seasons. Simply put, we are Tree Hill. And we thank the 1500+ people who attended for spending their money in our beautiful city! Film=Tourism. Film=Commerce. See you again in March 2016!

I asked these folks where they were from and how much money did they drop into our local economy. Some of it might surprise you. Enjoy the video below!

Get ready for a great weekend, but bundle up!  It’s gonna be a COLD one! Brrrr! Okay, let’s see what we got today:

screengemsEUE/Screen Gems Studios still has more work to due maintenance-wise, so they will be taking a break from tours during the winter months when there are fewer visitors to the lot.  Tours will resume in early Spring, 2015.   As for other film locations to visit, Wilmington and Beaches Convention and Visitors Bureau provides information about additional shooting locations and tours. – See more at: http://www.wilmingtonandbeaches.com/hollywood-east

Now, let’s recap and review!
The 20th annual Cucalorus Film Festival kicked off this Wednesday. Over 241 films from around the world will be playing through Sunday. Visit cucalorus.org for a complete schedule.

The ABC production Secrets and Lies wrapped this week. Look forward to seeing Ryan Phillippe, Juliette Lewis and Natalie Martinez star in this series premiering in March.

The Choice is back on private property today.  I would just like to add that some of the stars on the show are so adorable.  I am talking about the canine stars of course!  Can’t wait to see it on the big screen already!  They head to Whiteville next week.

Not too much to report on Sleepy Hollow except everybody’s awesome!  There!  Reported!

Meanwhile, two more feature films are starting up. The feature film Bolden which has already starting filming in Atlanta has made its way back to Wilmywood. They officially began production this week in Rocky Point. They head to Wilmington next week.

The comedy Blue Mountain State starring Alan Ritchson and Denise Richards begins production this Monday.

Not far behind is the TBS pilot, Vacationland from the Daily Show’s Jason Jones and Samantha Bee. They begin production the week of December 8th.  They have also named their director.  You might not know his name, but you have seen his work.  Steve Pink has directed Hot Tub Time Machine as well as the sequel that is due to come out soon.  Other works include the remake of About Last Night.

The Melissa McCarthy comedy Tammy, which was shot here in the summer of 2013 came out on Blu-Ray and DVD this week. You can also check it out on VOD, iTunes and at all other mainstream outlets!
