Auditions were underway this morning as Peter King and his team are heading up the stunt department for the second season of Under the Dome. And congrats to Peter and Jimmie and his whole gang! Many of us saw them while working on The Squeeze and before that Tammy last summer.
Our adorable love, Colin Ford, has made into town this weekend and he is ready for season two of Under the Dome. He’s officially getting settled in his new digs! So glad the cast is all coming in! Welcome back to Wilmywood!
Last night, Vanessa (NCasting)had her open call for extras and stand-ins at Post 1200/Giant Culture. Good Gravy!! Did you see the line out of the door! WECT did a little story on it, and they said one lady came from PA! Poor Vanessa is probably still passed out.
Over the weekend, we announced another crew call for The Red Zone. They are looking for an editor to handle dailies. The job begins around March 3rd and could run for three or four weeks. Please send your resume to: firstname.lastname@example.org with EDITOR in the subject line. They are looking to hire immediately.
OTHER CREW POSITIONS: The Red Zone is also accepting resumes various positions for the television pilot that is shooting here in Wilmington in mid march. Please send your resume to: email@example.com with your crew position in the title.
As production begins later this week for Secrets & Lies, the stars are out and about around Wilmington. Juliette Lewis was seen at O2 Fitness in Hanover Center looking beautiful as usual. Spot anyone yet? Let us know!
Delaying HOUSE OF CARDS in Maryland due to their film incentives being up in the air. Sound familiar?
In a letter to Maryland’s Governor Martin O’Malley, which you can read at Deadline, the Senior Vice President of Television Production, Charlie Goldstein, states that while he absolutely loved filming the first two seasons of House of Cards there, because of the incentives being up in the air (vote to come in June), they pushed production until after the vote and they are currently obligated and have already been looking at other states with great incentive packages. He went onto say, if the incentives don’t continue, they will move the production elsewhere.
If there is any doubt in any legislators minds, read the article, they are not bluffing. This will happen to us if we lose our film incentives. Other states will gladly welcome productions with open arms, and we will be left in the dust. Thousands of jobs gone, million in revenue halted, small businesses damaged and/or shut down.
In the meantime, thank you Dr. Ernie Ward who is running for NC Senate, District 8. And yes see for yourself. WHAT DOES ERNIE WARD STAND FOR?
In case you haven’t seen this, Scott Davis did announce a date for the The Celebration for Cuz. It will be March 16th, at Hugh Macrae Park from 2 pm to 6 pm. This will be held at Shelters 5 and 6 with the Volley Ball court between them. This will be a picnic style celebration so please bring food and drink for you and yours. Due to the public park rules, we are having to limit music to a DJ format…. Classic 80s and 90s Rock should be appropriate. There will be a small stage with a microphone set up so that those of you who wish to share something will have an opportunity…..Our family continues to be lifted by your words and gifts…. For those of you who have a schedule conflict, I am sorry. This was the best available. Again I look forward to hugging each and everyone of you….
