THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 12/05/2013 Local Filmmakers sell at AFM, Sleepy Hollow, PCAs and more.

Good morning Wilmywood!  Let’s start with our local boys from The Forgery.  Last time I wrote about Amariah and Obin Olson, they were coming off their AFM high, teasing us with good things to report. Finally, the news is out.  Looks like Continental Media landed the Brothers Olson thriller Unknown Caller. According to Screen Daily, rights have gone to Koch Media for Benelux, CCC for Taiwan and Line Tree Entertainment for South Korea, with several other territories under negotiation.

Continental Media is gearing up for screenings in LA and New York for North American buyers in the New Year.  READ ALL ABOUT UNKNOWN CALLER

With the fog so thick this morning, it’s the perfect atmosphere to gear up for another fabulous day on the set of Creepy Hollow, um, Sleepy Hollow, that is.  The gang gets ready for a lil’ Sis-Boom-BANG!  A surprise attack awaits a couple of key characters so you know they will be some action at the Bellevue Cemetery off Princess Place Drive.  Stunts and prop guns galore!  I am hoping to see some great stills from our awesome local gent Brownie Harris from this scene.  The action will continue from this afternoon into the overnight hours.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 10/03/2013 Sleepy Hollow, Witches of East End, The Squeeze, and more.

Director Terry Jastrow

Some more info is out about The Squeeze.  Their schedule is gonna be fast paced as it looks as though they are only giving 3 weeks for prep, and then production here in Wilmywood will last for three weeks as well.  They then head to Las Vegas to complete the film.  Terry Jastrow is the writer and director.  We also just learned he is one of the producers as well.

Sarah Crandall of WECT found an awesome top 10 list!  Wilmywood has been deemed the number one star-studded city on Rent.com’s list of the top 10 cities where you’re most likely to run into a celebrity, other than Los Angeles and New York. Boston and Austin take 2nd and 3rd.  Check out her article NOWroko

One of those celeb spotting locations is Roko Italian Cuisine in Mayfaire. The Sleepy Hollow Cast has this restaurant on their “must-dine” list.  Spotted there over the past couple weeks is Tom Mison, Nikki Beharie and Nick Gonzales.

WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD 09/04/2013

Under the Dome was not only the winner in its time slot but easily took the whole night with 10.71 million viewers.  TV By The Numbers reports:

On CBS, with the Time Warner carriage dispute finally resolved, Under the Dome earned a 2.6, up a tenth from last week’s 2.5 adults 18-49 rating. It’s impossible to say whether the restoration of CBS to TWC customers in 3 markets was responsible for the rise.

Encore Magazine wrote an article yesterday that is a fantastic read about the film incentives and those affected by it. Check it out.

And oooh my goodness, look at what’s arrived!!!! The trailer is here!  Eastbound and Down Season 4!

IMAG0404I had the honor of hanging out on Stage 10, the dream stage of Sleepy Hollow for a bit as our London correspondent, Lauren Watt, is in town.  Let’s just say I was geeking out probably more than she and her mate was!  Major kudos to the crew the production grabbed.  Solid.  If you know me by now, you know there was a major hug fest going on yesterday!    I LOVE OUR NC CREW SO MUCH!  Mad talent! Stage 10 by far is the most beautiful multi-set I have ever seen.  And of course they have also taken over other sound stages as well as the back lot!  Let’s hope Fox is here to stay for a long time.  If the pilot is any indication of how good the show will be, we will have ourselves a long time to love them.  The series premieres September 16th on Fox!

Sleepy Hollow has two units running today. They will be back on stage 10 today and the 2nd unit will be doing some driving scenes on MLK Parkway (23rd St. ramp to N. Kerr intersection).

The Dempsey Sisters wrapped yesterday in Brunswick Forest.

NBC’s Revolution Season One is now out on DVD and Blue Ray as well as digital download!  Get yourself a piece of Wilmington Film History 🙂
