The Choice is FINALLY moving on to another location for Day 20. They will be headed to Fort Fisher tonight.

Sleepy Hollow is running to two locations today. They will kick things off at the NHC courthouse or how the viewers know it The Sleepy Hollow Police Headquarters. Then they go back home to the soundstages.

Now looking into the NC filmmaker’s future. Let’s take a look at 2015.  Where do we stand?  How many positions can be filled?

Sleepy Hollow will be wrapping by the end of January.

Under the Dome will begin prepping for season 3 in late Jan/Early Feb.

Bolden will shoot into the new year with them possibly going as late as March/April 2015.

That’s all we got right now. Less than 1000 jobs for 4200+ film workers. So until we get North Carolina back in business )and we will), let’s expand into other states and see what is close by and worth looking into.
