THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 03/26/2014 EW, Sleepy Hollow, Under the Dome, Red Zone

Good Morning Wilmywood! Hope your hump day is as happy as a hippo in heat! Wait…
EW_Community
First off, I have some personal news to share with you. Beginning the week of April 6th, I will be adding another facet to The Wilmywood Daily.  ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY has gathered up a handful of bloggers and has made a “Community” out of us.  I have to say, they are quite talented and some are downright hilarious.  So, kudos to you EW for the selections.  But here’s the cool kicker.  While the other bloggers are doing awesome show recaps (seriously give them a read), I get to do what I LOVE most. Talk about and promote NC Film. I am very excited about being able to shine an even brighter light on the productions that are shooting here. So yay!  Now let’s do just that!

Sleepy-Hollow-TitleThe small town of SLEEPY HOLLOW is getting bigger!  They have already been using 3 sound stages and the entire back lot.  And now they are adding a 4th sound stage to the massive production.  In addition to that space, it looks like we’ll be seeing more of Wilmington aka Sleepy Hollow as they have been scouting new locations for season 2.  Hunter from the Star News says production begins May 6th.

tscc3

RED ZONE is getting a nice mid-morning start which is a very good thing cuz it’s just way too cold to be working outside this morning! They will be shooting on Colonial Drive today.

UNDER THE DOME is at Screen Gems today, but they will venture back out tomorrow.  Dwight Yoakam joins our Domies on set today!

RumorslogoAnd now it’s time for [INSERT ECHO] Rumooooors from the Lot…

1) The buzz is back for BOLDEN! People are talkin’ saying the most expensive independent film ever made is not out of the picture.  Things might move forward after all.  The question is when? Still workin’ on this one.  I will keep you posted!

2) We might be getting back to back TV movies.  After THE SIN SEER wraps Overflow Entertainment might shooting a second flick here in Wilmywood.

3) There is more talk about SECRETS & LIES moving to Charlotte. Although I have heard from others that due to prominent locations, they would stay here, I have also heard that Charlotte would be better suited for the TV production.  We will find out soon enough which rumor is correct.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 03/24/2014 Max Steel, Under the Dome, Red Zone

Hey Hey and Happy Monday Wilmywood!  Hope you had a great weekend!  I was great to see so many of you at Jack Bender‘s Art Show. SEE PHOTOS NOW

tscc3

So last week, I hinted at some really cool construction going on for MAX STEEL.  Well, my sources are telling me Ideal Cement is gonna be the Max Steel Headquarters.  It feels like TMNT all over again! And it looks like director Stewart Hendler is confirming the location.

I chatted via twitter with Ana Villafane over the weekend and she is pumped about playing Sydney.  Ben Winchell, who will be playing Max McGrath is gonna have one hell of a wardrobe, one piece in particular.

MAXSTEEL_CASTWriter Christopher Yost was doin’ a little bragging last week, saying “Know what else is ridiculously awesome? The suit for the Max Steel movie.”  Okay, seriously, I am starting to geek out about this flick.  Ahhhh! Let’s go into production already!

Under the Dome is headed to Southport today for a little church scene.   A lot of cast member on set today including Dean Norris, Mike Vogel, Rachelle LeFevre, and Eddie Cahill to name a few.

AshleyMarchingBandAnd now we always walk about Film=Jobs, but more importantly we need to discuss what film does for a community.  There are a ton of stories that you never hear, so I am gonna make sure to bring them all to light!

Jenny called The Sunny Morning Show on Sunny 104.5, and she told her story of how a television production (RED ZONE) has helped the Ashley High School Marching Band. READ STORY NOW

RED ZONE is back at Ashley High School today.  I am so glad for the sake of the cast and crew today is not an overnight shoot!  Good Gravy!

How NC Film Impacts our Community, our Kids

We always talk about Film=Jobs, but more importantly we need to discuss what film does for a community.  There are a ton of stories that you never hear, so I am gonna make sure to bring them all to light!

A listener called The Sunny Morning Show on Sunny 104.5, and she told her story of how a television production (RED ZONE) has helped the Ashley High School Marching Band.

“My daughter goes to Ashley High School and she was part of the filming on Thursday and Friday! They had about 35 members of the Ashley High School band out there!  The band got a nice chunk of money and they needed it! The money is going to go towards really anything they need, which is a lot! They had just gotten back from MPA on Thursday and they scored all 1’s (Superior). So they were on a high from that and then they went over there to film. My daughter had the best time. They all did and it really helped out the band tremendously!”

This is money that just wasn’t there for the marching band that has bettered our community, our kids, who live right here in Wilmington!  Thank you NC Film! FILM=Better Community
