THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 06/09/2015 Dome Days, The Squeeze, Vacationland

Did you see something special in the News and Observer? There is a full page ad (above) provided by the Wilmington Regional Film Commission and Screen Gems. Thanks for this Robbie. “FILM” is spelled out with the names of all the businesses that are part of the Small Business for Film coalition, and the message says:

Small businesses understand the importance of the NC film industry. Film production supports hotels and restaurants, print shops and paint stores, antique dealers and clothing boutiques, equipment rental companies and lumberyards, florists, locksmiths and everything in-between. Legislators, your vote makes a difference. Support small business. Vote Film.

With that being said, while Dirty Dancing is not filming and is holding up $4 million of the grant, I am hearing that the show Vacationland  who very much wanted to stay here has settled on Georgia. I am being told that our NCFilm crew’s getting calls to work on the show. The pilot was filmed here late last year.

Meanwhile the News & Observer’s Spencer Parts hung with us during day one of Dome EddieCahillDays. Check out his article, “CBS drama films third season as NC film industry struggles to compete

In the article Under the Dome cast member Eddie Cahill said he thinks the town (Wilmington) is especially supportive of film. “It feels personal here,” he said. Yeah, Eddie gets it. Nail. Head. Nuff said.

Today is day two of Dome days. I will be heading back to EUE/Screen Gems Studios later this morning to interview some more of the cast. They are currently on Day 7 of Episode 8. And guess who I ran into? The fabulous Eriq LaSalle! Yep he’s back and is ready to direct episode 9 then guest star on a  few episodes too! He will play the ruthless Hektor Martin, the CEO of the energy company run by Barbie’s father played by Brett Cullen. So plan on seein’ Eriq around town for the next couple of months!

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 12/22/2014 The final report of the year.

A HUGE thank you to Rachael Tartell, Lauren Buehler, Tracy Breyfogle, Cassandra Kollmer and all the crew members who donated their time and money this season. The Toys R Us Christmas Layaway Payoff event, which was initially a Sleepy Hollow crew initiative quickly turned into a Wilmington Film crew member event, raised over $1300 which paid off 19 Layaway plans this holiday season over at Toy R Us!!!
Thank you Wilmington Film Crew!!!

nickGOur Sleepy Hollow Season One hottie and sweetheart Nicholas Gonzalez has joined the CW drama, The Flash as Dante, Cisco Ramon’s (Carlos Valdes) older brother.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 12/16/2014 Locations and Tidbits for today.

Mornin! Not too much to chat about, but I have a few tidbits. Vacationland is out on 421 in Currie today before they make a company move downtown. Yesterday they dressed up another local business: The Gator Hole in Winnabow and renamed it, The Deer Hole. Nice one! LOL The TBS pilot wraps on Friday.

I am SO GLAD to see Sleepy Hollow using Old Books on Front St today! I know they will be in front of the building for sure, so you should be able to get a nice glimpse of them filming.

Bolden is back at their Stages in Rocky Point.

Blue Mountain State officially wrapped over the weekend. I am looking forward to this as they used The Conjuring house for their “frat” house in Currie. Love that!

CHoice_Editing

Director Ross Katz and the post production team are already hard at work editing The Choice. Looks like they got some gorgeous footage. This Sparks flick will definitely be a show piece for Wilmywood tourism!

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 12/10/2014 More Rumors from the Lot, Day 1 for Vacationland and more.

Reggie’s 42nd St Tavern has had quite a transformation – From the lovable hole in the wall bar into the “Banana Creamery.” Jason Jones and Natalie Zea join the crew for Day 1 of production for Vacationland! Have an awesome shoot cast and crew!

BansheeRUMORS FROM THE LOT – Remember when Banshee made the announcement they would not be returning to North Carolina for Season 4, at the time signs pointed them to Louisiana, but yesterday I got word that they are heading to Pittsburgh. I cannot confirm that yet.

Also, yesterday I reported that if there is a Season 3 for Sleepy Hollow (which is not confirmed, but looks like it is a go), I told you the new location frontrunner was Atlanta.  After I posted the blog, I was told by multiple sources, I hit the nail on the head. We shall find out in the next 6 weeks for sure.

JSchaechMore additions to the Sleepy Hollow family. Johnathon Schaech (Ray Donavan, Star-Crossed) has come and gone.  He is guest starring as a former Puritan minister, and powerful warlock, Solomon Kent, in the upcoming episode 2.15,  “Spellcatcher.” READ MORE

All you Sleepyheads fear not, Sleepy Hollow returns on Monday, January 5th.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 12/09/2014 – Rumors from the Lot, Locations and More.

Happy Tuesday Wilmywood. A few things to chat about this morning! Let’s start off with locations today.

Blue Mountain State is in Currie one more time before they head into Wilmywood

Bolden is filming at St. Mary’s Church today.

Vacationland begins tomorrow. They head to Reggies 42nd Street Tavern  tomorrow.

Sleepy Hollow shoots at the sound stages today.

RumorslogoSo, over the past few months we’ve known it’s not a matter of IF Sleepy Hollow will leave North Carolina for season 3. The question has always been WHERE? With the new film grant in place for the first 6 months of 2015, and half of it already allocated to Under the Dome, Sleepy Hollow spends way too much money to stay. There has been talk about Vancouver (which was top of the list for a while), also Philly, Louisiana, New York and Atlanta. Now the latest rumors are that Atlanta on the top of the list. Now with that being said, there has been no official announcement about a season 3. So, we shall see in the coming weeks if the rumors have any validity.

WAKINGDEADAnd speaking of Georgia and their BOOMING film industry, The Waking Dead Cafe has opened in Senoia, Georgia where most of the show is shot. Yep, another small business benefitting from the film industry.  Just thought I would point that out.  CHECK IT OUT NOW

ICYMI: Under the Dome: Season 2 is officially out on DVD and Blu-Ray today! READ MORE NOW
