The Wilmywood Daily – 05/09/2014 The Upfronts, Firestarter, The Crow, Locations today and more.

We made it to the weekend! Woo Hoo!!  First, let me remind you of the excitement that is to come next week.  The Upfronts!  In case you don’t know, the Upfronts are scheduled presentations from all the networks.  Normally, it is during this time (8 weeks), we find out about shows that will get picked up, special sneak peeks of shows currently in production and they also give out premiere dates.

UPFRONTS The major networks will be presenting next week.  What will we find out?  Well, probably the fate of ABC’s Secrets and Lies (READ DEADLINE’S TAKE ON ABC PILOTS) that shot here back in February as well as Red Zone, now called Field of Play (although I heard they will probably head back to LA if it gets picked up).  We are also waiting on a premiere date for Sleepy Hollow.  So get ready!  It’s gonna be fun!  We won’t know anything about How and Why for at least another month, but it looks very promising!

I wanted to thank Edward Martin for writing an incredible article in Business NC Magazine!  He fairly wrote about both sides of the issue of NC Film Incentives and it was beautifully written.  If you find a copy, pick up a few!

Now, where will our productions be shooting around town today?

Under the Dome will be playing around at Greenfield Lake Park and on Wellesley Place and Max Steel will be off Middle Sound Loop Rd. Sleepy Hollow will be shooting later today in Castle Hayne again and The Sin Seer is at an undisclosed location.

Max-SteelMax Steel stole the hearts of many and closed some pre-sales throughout most of Europe as well as Asia! We’re talkin’ Germany, France, Italy, Russia and all over Southeast Asia, they all want some of the Steel action!  Congrats already to the Wilmywood folks working so hard on this fun superhero flick!

BrettCullen

Oh and guess what I heard!  Our awesome Brett Cullen who was here last year for Riverguard, is back in town!  Now rumor has it he will be making an appearance on Under the Dome!  We will see if the trades pick that up or if I can do some some digging, I will tell more as soon as I know! If this is true, I can’t wait to hug him!  LOVE this guy!

imageSunday is a very special day in Wilmywood movie history. On May 11, 1984 a very important film was released. That movie was Stephen King’s Firestarter. The film starred a young Drew Barrymore, David Keith and Heather Locklear. It’s a story of a young couple who undergo testing as part of a paid medical experiment. The experiment leaves the couple with telekinetic powers and the child the convince together is born with a “pyro kinetic” ability meaning the child can start fires with her mind. With that power, the government seeks her out and her family helps to keep her safe as she learns that fear and anger control the environment around her.

This movie is monumental in Wilmywood’s history as it is often referred to as the movie that “put us on the map” as a studio town 30 years ago. It all started with Frank Capra, Jr. spotting Orton Plantation on the cover of Southern Accents Magazine while he was searching for the ultimate location for the horror flick.  So, we happened to luck out because where ever that home was, that’s where they were gonna shoot it.  Crew members actually built a replica of the exterior of the plantation about one mile down the road.  Why?  So they could set it on fire and blow it up, of course. Other locations include the Pender County Courthouse, Isabel Holmes Bridge,  and Wilmington’s 1st Presbyterian Church.  This movie was when Wilmywood fell in love with Mr. Stephen King and (seemingly) he with us.

tscc3

We also have another NC film which is reaching its 20 year mark.. The same day only ten years after Firestarter was released, The Crow was released as well. The Crow made it’s way from the sound stages of LA to NC and stars Brandon Lee, son of martial arts legend, Bruce Lee. The film is a story of a man who returns from death to seek revenge for the death of his would-be bride and himself. Some of the film’s most memorable scenes were done at the I deal Cement plant (where Max Steel and Under the Dome is shooting now) as well as downtown Wilmington.  But most of it was filmed at Carolco Studios, which we know now to be EUE/Screen Gems.  Sadly, we lost Brandon during the course of filming, but we in Wilmywood are forever grateful for the art he brought into out town twenty years ago.

Happy anniversary to two Wilmywood movies that mean very much to out film community.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 04/25/2014 Under the Dome, Jessabelle, Film Rally, Max Steel and More

Woo Hoo!  We made it to Friday peeps! Let’s dive right in!  Under the Dome will be on the sound stages today. They will be back shooting on location in Wilmington on Monday.  We are moving from one production to 4 by Tuesday.  The Sin Seer and FX’s How and Why kick off Monday and Max Steel joins the group on Tuesday.  Max Steel writer Christopher Yost has just one thing on his mind.

ChrisYost_MaxSteel

The Jessebelle trailer has FINALLY been released! Shot back in 2012, the supernatural flick is about a young woman recuperating at her father’s run-down home after a tragic accident.  No sooner than she arrives, Jessabelle encounters a terrifying presence with a connection to her long-deceased mother. It stars Sarah Snook, Mark Webber, Joelle Carter and of course our local favorite David Andrews.  They shot the flick off 421 on the Cape Fear River.  Most of it was shot in Town Creek at a house on River Road back.   WATCH TRAILER NOW

Jessabelle

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 04/23/2014 – UNDER THE DOME CAST CAN SING!!, How and Why, Max Steel and more.

HAPPY HUMP DAAAAYY my beautiful Wilmywood peeps! Let’s get you caught up with the latest!

michael-cera-john-hawkesFX’s How and Why is gearing up for a great shoot.  They have some fabulous sets at EUE/Screen Gems Studios.  It was a three week build and the stars have been trickling in as rehearsals are this week. Most of the pilot will be shot at Screen Gems, but you might spot them out and about sometime next week like at Roland Grise Middle School.  They are running camera tests this week as they get ready for their seven day shoot which begins this Monday!

Max-SteelMattel’s Max Steel in in their final week and prepping like mad!  So glad to say that Ana Villafane has arrived safely and is already training and rehearsing along with Ben Winchell for the start of production next week.  No down time for these young ones!  The producers are trickling in too, so we can hopefully get a chance to welcome them in person!  Bill and Julia, are ya listening?  Writer Christopher Yost is heading back this way for the duration as well, so welcome to Wilmywood, Christopher!

Under the Dome is running two units today and running all over the place. They are shooting at four different locations: on  Victoria Drive, Castle St, Chestnut St and at New Hanover High School. It’s a beautiful day for filming.

And OMG!  Did you have any idea that Grace Victoria Cox and Mackenzie Lintz could sing like this!  AMAZING LADIES!!!  Check it out! Are you ready to come sing on my show?

TWOAT-Cover_JasonMottYesterday, Harlequin released the cover of our handsome NC boy’s, sorry let me change that, New York Times bestselling author’s next book, or as I like to call it, Jason Mott‘s next bestseller!  The Wonder of All Things, is about, “a young girl who has the mysterious gift of healing and who suddenly finds herself having to decide how much she’s willing to give of herself in order to save the ones she loves most.”  The Senior Editor Erika Imranyi is extremely proud of not only the book, but it’s cover.

I love the way they put it: “From critically acclaimed and New York Times bestselling author Jason Mott comes a spellbinding tale of love, sacrifice and the power of miracles.”  Oh yeah, that’s hot!!

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 04/22/2014 Max Steel, Screen Gems Tours, The Crow, Red Zone, Under the Dome and more.

Hello and Howdy!  Happy Earth Day to ya!  And if you see fellow Wilmington crew member Shaun O’Rourke, make sure to tell him Happy Birthday!

UTD_DVDLooks like our Domies will be filming in two locations today.  The Burgaw Courthouse as well as in Currie. Now, we were chatting about this on Facebook yesterday as some more fun deets came out about season 2 of Under the Dome. Two things of note.  I asked about this last season! Stephen King is known for having a cameo in every movie he has done.  Sometimes it’s like Where’s Waldo, and sometimes he has a one liner.  So, I kept an eye out for him last season, but to no avail.

Well, FINALLY this season, King will do his staple thang! He will be a townsfolk in the  season premiere which airs June 30th!   And secondly, here it is again:  The Six Degrees of Wilmywood! Under the Dome‘s premiere episode is titled ‘Heads will Roll’ Coincidence? I think not!  Speaking of Sleepy Hollow, production begins on its sophomore season in just 13 days!

anthony-lapaglia copyThe upfronts are just around the corner.  That’s when we normally find out a lot of intel about our favorite Wilmywood shot shows and especially our new ones!  Like ABC’s Secrets and Lies and  Red Zone, which has been renamed Field of Play.  All of our shows have a ton of competition, however, so we will be eagerly waiting on which WIlmywood shows make the cut!  Check out the enitre fall pilot list from my homies over at EW.com

MAXSTEEL_CASTWoo Hoo!  Our leading man for Max Steel, Ben Winchell arrived in Wilmywood over the weekend, and today his female counter part joins us here, too!  A big Wilmywood welcome to Ana Villafane.  But back to Mr. Ben.  Marty has a specialty photo double need for Max Steel that will audition today or tomorrow! Here is Marty’s Post:

We are in search of a specialty PHOTO DOUBLE. If you look similar to Ben Winchell and are an EXPERT MOUNTAIN BIKE RIDER, please email your photo/contact info/bike riding experience.  Contact Marty Siu Casting  A.S.A.P. at: maxsteelextras@gmail.com with the heading BIKE RIDING PHOTO DOUBLE.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 10/30/2013 – NC is Top 10 Film Location Worldwide, 13 Scary Wilmywood Flicks

cropped-screen-gems.jpgMore awareness for NC Film came out last week with North Carolina making the top ten list of filming locations WORLDWIDE in an article written by P3update.com. Thanks to WECT to finding this gem of a list.  We came in at #9, just ahead of the UK.  In the article, they wrote:

North Carolina’s 25-percent refundable tax credit program recently remained safe from a far-reaching rewrite of the current tax code. As the program stands, the state continues to attract popular television productions, like “Revolution,” “Under the Dome” and “Homeland,” and feature films like Iron Man 3, We’re the Millers, and Safe Haven. Filmmakers can find a variety of studio options in North Carolina to suit most production needs. The Wilmington-based EUE/Screen Gems is one of the country’s largest studio complexes with 10 stages, while Charlotte, Asheville, Raleigh and areas surrounding Greensboro and Winston-Salem also offer soundstage options for visiting filmmakers.

California took the #1 spot, followed by Canada and Georgia.  SEE THE FULL ARTICLE NOW

The Squeeze is back filming downtown today at the 1800 block of Nun St as well as the alleyway between Ann and Nun.

dirtpoorTONIGHT:  Dirt Poor Film Festival is throwing its Second Annual Halloween Bash! With a solid lineup of eerie, gory films and music by Deadly Lo-Fi, Euphio, and DJ Marwoah, it’s going to be one hell of a Halloween party! Get Seen.
