The new HBO series, Vice Principals, is currently accepting crew resumes. This production will be based in the Charleston region and begin principal photography at the end of March.

Please send your resume to: viceprincipalsresumes@gmail.com. Be sure put your position and department in the subject line.

FYI: Line producer is Stephanie Laing.  Directing is of course Jody Hill.

But guess who else would have made it back to Wilmywood if the incentive would have stayed in place? (FYI: This series was supposed to be shot here, hence the post).

Our Dawson’s Creek girl, Busy Phillips.  Yep she is starring in this series along with Danny McBride, Da’vine Joy Randolph, Sheaun McKinney, and Georgia King.

Is there an emoticon for my current mood as I write this blog?

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 01/12/2015 NC SFX MUA on Syfy’s Face Off tomorrow, more projects for SC.

North Carolina’s own Special Effects makeup artist Gregory Hewett will be on Syfy’s Face Off tomorrow night during a two part 8th season premiere @ 9 p.m. Greg is a Supply native who now lives in Charlotte.

I caught up with Greg this morning and I asked him what some of his favorite moments from 2014 were. He had a hard time answering because there were just too many to count. After twisting his arm, however, he said, “Working on It’s Supernatural, conducting a sold out FX class at Spooky Empire as a guest speaker, and participating in the national Chairi Walk which made over $15,000 in donations for finding a cure all made in one weekend!”  You rock Greg and we can’t wait to see you on Face Off tomorrow night! Set your DVRs folks!

Hunter over at the Star News has a nice story on Greg.  READ NOW

With Sleepy Hollow wrapping next week, the feature film Bolden will be the only project shooting in North Carolina (unless you count the two reality shows that only hire a handful of crew.)

It’s mind blowing that South Carolina, a state with no film infrastructure, can land project after project. Yeah, go ahead, chime in after that statement. I could go for days. So, if you’re up to traveling for work, this is the latest scoop in regards to South Carolina. (PS – The SC Gov Nikki Haley gets it! )

danny-mcbride-jody-hillMost of you already know, but in case you missed it, Danny McBride and Jody Hill’s HBO series Vice Principals set up offices last week in Charleston. Two days after I announced it, the SC Media had a field day with that news.  They are shooting 18 episodes. Our local boy David Brightbill’s got this one, so all you Homeland/Secrets and Lies folks, you probably already know that too.

The psychological thriller Faceless has set up shop in Charleston and are projected to begin production on or around February 15th. Marcel Sarmiento is directing.

RobertKirkmanNYCCI am also hearing Robert Kirkman’s Outcast is going to series. They shot the pilot last month in Rock Hill, SC for Cinemax. That will be good for the Charlotte (Banshee/Paper Towns) crew as they I heard they will stay in Rock Hill.  As soon as I get more details, I will let you know.

ABOUT OUTCAST VIA DEADLINE:
Reg E. Cathey (St. Vincent), Julia Crockett (The Absence), Wrenn Schmidt (Boardwalk Empire)  and Kip Pardue (Ray Donovan) have been cast opposite Patrick Fugit in Cinemax’s new exorcism drama Outcast, from The Walking Dead executive producer Robert Kirkman. Based on a comic by Kirkman and artist Paul Azaceta, Outcast follows follows Kyle Barnes (Fugit), a young man who has been plagued by possession since he was a child. Now an adult, he embarks on a journey to find answers, but what he uncovers could mean the end of life on Earth as we know it.

Remember when Eastbound and Down was filming here last summer and we are discussing a high school series Danny McBride and Jody Hill were creating for HBO (see blog)?  Well, the show has a name and it got picked up!  The Home Box Office is giving them 18 episodes of Vice Principals.  It’s about the folks who “almost” run the school.  Now we wait and see WHERE they shoot it. Rumors are already swirling about them making sweet eyes at Wilmington yet again.  Let’s hope so!  I will keep you posted! (SOURCE THR)
