Happy Monday! Are you still recovering or revving to go? Well, whether you are into football or not, common ground is found when it comes to the commercials. They had a handful of great ads, and one of them was shot right here in North Carolina.
Some of our NC Film Crew worked on this funny one! The Diet Dew Dale Call. The fabulous Patrick Borowiak, Sean Yaple, John McIntyre, and Kane Pearson were all in the Camera Dept. from Wilmington. I was told the rest of the crew was mainly from Charlotte.
On the local commercial front, give it up for our local boy Michael Rosander! Seriously, how great was it to see Michael doing that O’Brien Heating and Air Commercial! Awesome dance moves, Rosander! Awesome dance moves!
Now if you missed it on Friday there are two things for you to know. First, congrats to out NC shot show, Banshee, although they didn’t say if they would continue to film in NC, Cinemax announced a Season 3 pick up. Hopefully it is implied.
Also, Moviemaker not only gave Wilmington some love as they put us at #2 on the list of top small cities that is the best place to live and work as a movie maker, but Asheville came in at #1 as the best town! Go NC Film go!
Thursday, we told you about the big Oscar revoke for our 3rd nomination for a NC shot film. Well guess what? Bruce Broughton is hitting back. According to Deadline, the composer, whose title song from NC shot Alone Yet Not Alone fired back just hours after the Academy issued its latest statement on the matter — Broughton’s PR guy Ray Costa made it an open letter.
