Steve_ProutyYesterday, we watched the Oscar Nominees roll in and two North Carolina got recognized. We expected Iron Man 3 to get a nom, and it did for Visual Effects. But our jaws dropped when we saw the next one. After all, when do you ever see a comedy EVER get a nomination at the Oscars? It’s a rare occurrence. But hey, we’ll take it! So HUGE congratulations to Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa! The Hair and Makeup department got the nomination! Very well deserved! Johnny Knoxville looked amazing! Makeup artist Steve Prouty said in a statement:

“I’m very proud of having been a part of this film,” Prouty said. “We worked very hard each day to help bring Irving Zisman to life and are eternally grateful to have worked with someone like Johnny Knoxville. He is a true talent.”

AngieNow let’s head to Charlotte, NC for a spell.  Actress Angie Harmon ( Law & Order, Rizzoli & Isles)  was appointed to the Studio Charlotte board. She gave her plea to Charlotte City Council members yesterday to approve Studio Charlotte. The developer has until the spring to convince city leaders to OK the plan to remake the Eastland Mall site.   READ STORY NOW

Also on the Charlotte front, in the latest issue of Production Weekly, they report Charlotte will get the feature film, The Sharp Files later this year.  This suspenseful flick is about a professional psychiatrist, Laura Sharp, who struggles with her own mental state after the death of her husband and two children. She must work to find out what is real as she deals with four mysterious and dangerous patients.  M.J. Alhabeeb Jr. will direct.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 01/10/2014 C.D. Jackie Burch Moving to Atlanta, More Noms for Sleepy Hollow and more.

Good Morning and Happy Friday!  Now before I get to some fun news, if you are in the film community, especially if you are an actor, this is some breaking news.

Yesterday, Jackie Burch one of our most talented industry people here in Wilmington, announced that effective March 1st, she is moving to Atlanta, GA.  This is a woman we have been so honored to have in our film community as she has an incredible resume that dates back to the Brat Pack.  Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Weird Science.  Add at least 50 more titles til we get to the most recent Iron Man 3, The Hunger Games, Arthur Newman, 42, and let alone the films that have not been released yet: Tammy, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part One and Two.

Robert Downey JrDid you know that Jackie was the one who gave Robert Downey Jr. his big break casting him in Weird Science?  And it came full circle when she cast IM3.  When Jackie relocated from Los Angeles to Wilmington, NC in 2008, we were so excited to have her here and officially call her our own.  But now, with 4 productions coming here and over 20 going to Georgia, well…

I caught up with her last night and here is what we talked about.

SHEILA:  So tell me, is it true?  Are you really moving to Atlanta?

JACKIE: Yes, however, I am still keeping an office here because I still want to work in Wilmington, but with the film incentives up in the air like they are, there is no work here for me right now.  I already have some projects that are in Atlanta at the moment. And with Pinewood Studios coming. I cannot just sit here waiting around.  I need to go where the work is available.

SHEILA: So you are not completely leaving us.  That’s at least some good news.  Just so you know, Jackie, people love you here, especially the actors in town.  You are responsible for so many of them getting the part!

JACKIE:  Oh, please tell them, I will not forget them. I always consider North Carolina talent for anything that I am casting in Georgia.  We have a lot of talented actors here.  And like I said, I will be available for any project that shoots in North Carolina, even if I am residing in Georgia.  I do that now, even though I currently live in Wilmington, I am casting projects in Atlanta.

SHEILA:  You know you are breaking  my heart right now, right?

JACKIE: (laughs) It’s so sad that I have to make this move.  I am hoping when they vote again this time,  they will do the right thing.  This incentive affects so many people, and not just the crew, but the small businesses, so many of them rely on the film industry to pay the bills.  I hope that they not only extend the incentives, but they get rid of  the expiration.  They need to make the incentives permanent.

I spoke with Jackie this morning and she asked for me to take the picture down, I laughed, cuz she never puts up a pic of herself up anywhere.  Lord, I love this woman!  But while we were chatting, she added:

I am really going to miss the theater in Wilmington.  I’ve cast many of actors right from theater, always trying to discover new talent.  I am very proud of the work they do here.

Jackie will be having a final workshop coming up before she heads out to Georgia.  It will be the weekend of February 8th.  I will keep you posted about all the details.

filmjobsBut back to the conversation.  That is the key, isn’t it? Ending the sunset. Politicians continue to make one HUGE mistake that they just simply cannot process how damaging it is.  They think it’s a good idea to just keep extending the incentive instead of permanently end the sunset once and for all!  And if you are in the industry then you know how BAD that is.  Not as bad a losing it, but, you know, production companies don’t know what to think of us.  Is there an incentive this year?  Well, I am planning my production two years from now, and NC’s incentives are up in the air.  No thank you, I will go to Georgia or Louisiana. The month of May cannot come soon enough. Look, extending the incentives is better than nothing, I agree, but it only puts a band-aid on an open wound.  Unless you stitch it up, it will never heal!  We will be back in crisis mode when we are 24 months away from “renewal” time.  So, let’s get this sunset outta here!  The sooner we do that, the more productions will make plans to film here and we can break the cycle of hesitation from production companies when they think of North Carolina.  We cannot afford to lose more amazing people in the film industry that call North Carolina their home!

Also, it wasn’t included in the live award show, but we can tell you Homeland nabbed a PCA for Favorite Premium Cable TV Show.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 01/08/2014 TV Guide Cover, Bad Grandpa Deleted Scenes, Hank and Jed, PCAs and Much More!

TV GUIDE

Howdy! Another freezing morning, but we got lots to chat about that will make us all warm and fuzzy, much like my brain before coffee.  Let’s start off with our adorable dynamic duo Ichabod and Abbie of Sleepy Hollow!  Nicole Beharie and Tom Mison look fabulous on the cover of TV Guide, don’t you think?  And let me just add how much I LOVE the opening to this TV Guide article by Aubry D’Arminio.

“The end is nigh for Sleepy Hollow‘s first season. And it looks extremely…busy. It’s a stinging-cold December morning at Wilmington, North Carolina’s EUE/Screen Gems Studios. In the nearby woods, a stuntwoman wearing a low-cut, corseted frock is being pulled through the air on a thick cord and dropped nose-first onto a safety mat. “Can she be yanked even harder?” director Ken Olin (thirtysomething) asks the crew member at the other end of the rope. Yes, she certainly can.”

Wilmington.  North Carolina.  EUE/Screen Gems.  Crew – So many of my favorite buzz words in the opening paragraph!

READ TV GUIDE’S “Inside Sleepy Hollow’s Shocking Season Finale”

“Sleepy Hollow collects the most tweets per minute of any current Fox show and is the second most popular new series on social media after The Originals, with nearly 1 million fans across Facebook and Twitter alone.”

under-the-dome-cbsNew characters are coming to Chester’s Mill.  from TVLine.com reports not one, not two, but three.   He says Season 2 will introduce three new characters, including:

Sam: a gruff kinda guy who lives in the woods.  The locals call him a “crazy drunk” which to me translates he will have answers to some dilemmas this season.  He is a relative or was once someone close to one of the characters we know well, but they aren’t saying who.

Rebecca: a 30 something teacher.  Big Jim wants her to get a Dome school going, but of course his motivation isn’t higher education.

A “new girl” in town: A very vague and ageless description, but we know that she is “in to” Joe and Norrie, so we can assume she’s a teen.

MTV is so kind.  Now that the North Carolina shot Bad Grandpa is officially available for digital download, they gave us a bonus!  Here’s an exclusive look at one of the film’s many deleted scenes.  A gem, MTV says,  that’s as good as the pranks that made the final cut.  “Bad Grandpa” will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on January 28.

regular folksIf A-Listers never went to Hollywood: Finally, this got me laughing out loud, so I thought I would share.  If the hottest celebs were regular folks and they did without their personal trainers, stylists and nutritionists, they might look something like this.  Thanks to the power of Photoshop and Danny Evans, who has got mad skills, we get to see what some famous celebrities would look like if “they didn’t take the Hollywood career path.” Some of these photoshop jobs are flawless.  This guy is REAL good!  You gotta see the others as well.  Hilarious shots of  Rihanna, Britney Spears, Johnny Depp, and more.  SEE PHOTOS NOW
