THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 01/03/2013 Max Steel, Sleepy Hollow Birthdays and More!

Max-SteelYay!  It’s already Friday!  That went fast, didn’t it?  Alright let’s get right to it.  What a week of banter about Max Steel.  Ready for the latest?  I am getting mixed messages from the lot.  Some are saying that Max Steel plans to open up offices Monday.  BUT to counter that, I heard, nope, it’s just a rumor.  I guess we’ll find out Monday if it is  indeed true.   I have a feeling it won’t be for at least another week and that they will be at Screen Gems.  Pure speculation on my part however.  They are opening offices this month.  I will let you know ASAP. Max Steel is shooting in both Wilmington and Connecticut.

Happy Birthday to cutie pie Nick Gonzalez, you know, Abbie’s Ex, Detective Luke Morales on Sleepy Hollow!  He turns 38 today!  Yay!  Happy Birthday to your face, my handsome buddy!

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 12/03/2013 Road to Hollow E2, Sleepy Hollow, Film Incentives

Top a the mornin to ya!!  Happy Tuesday! Yesterday, I posted Orlando Jones’ epic journey, Episode 1 of The Road to Hollow.  His trek continues from California to Wilmington, NC with Episode 2.  Check it out!

Sleepy Hollow is out and about today.  One unit will be at the 2100 block of Pender Ave.

WECT put out this story yesterday.  A sober look at what would happen to New Hanover County if the film incentives faded with the sunset:  New Hanover County could lose more than $10 million annually in tax revenue if the state’s film incentives aren’t renewed.  That’s according to Robert Handfield, an economist at NC State University. This includes $3.7 million in sales tax revenue, $2 million in direct sales tax revenue from film-industry workers, and $200,000 in room occupancy tax.

Handfield added, “The implications of the loss of the industry on local tax revenue will be substantial, and will drive further gaps in state and local tax revenues, increased unemployment, and the loss of an industry in North Carolina that is healthy and growing nationwide.”  READ THE ENTIRE STORY
