Michael Rooker, who stars in the #1 Summer Blockbuster, Guardians of the Galaxy, talks to the folks at about his role in our upcoming biopic, Bolden.

“I play a fellow by the name of Pat McMurphy.  He’s an individual who works in the district judge’s office, alongside the district judge.  All of the things that we do, physically and politically, are the scheming of things in the New Orleans area.” READ MORE 

Bolden will shoot of course here as well as Atlanta and New Orleans. Although tests shoots are being done here in Wilmington, they begin production September 22nd in Atlanta. They don’t begin officially filming in Wilmington until December. Michael tweeted last week while he was in Wilmywood during his fitting.

ICYMI: The trailer for Wilmywood shot Two-Eleven came out last week.  This Indie flick from Brick Lions Productions, Five Degrees Productions and Rude Jester Productions is slated for the film festival circuit in 2015.

“Two-Eleven” is a powerful story about the raw emotions we experience when coping with a traumatic situation. It’s a story about consequence… and a story of hope…”

Starring Devin McGee, Joshua Allen, Terrie Batson, Troy Rudeseal, Brick Jackson and many more!

The local drama was written by Brick Jackson & Joseph A. Covas, directed by Joseph A. Covas and produced by Cecilia and Jay Zadeh.  Plus we can’t forget about our fab local DP Brannigan Carter and his mad skills!

Two-Eleven was shot in New Hanover County and utilized multiple locations such as Cape Fear Community College, The Millenium Building on Randall Pkwy, ILM Airport (Air Wilmington), 2nd and Grace streets, New Hanover Medical Center, and the Bellamy Mansion.

Well done folks!  Looking forward to a screening!

Can we give a major birthday shout out to our local stunt man/coordinator Dino Mucchio!  Look, the stunt ladies love him! LOL.  Happy Birthday buddy!

NC Film Rally Video and letter from Greensboro, NC.

Dear Sheila,

I was totally amazed at the outpouring of community support at the Wilmington Film Rally. I have covered rallies for over 20 years and never seen the togetherness of the film workers and the local government leaders at any event.

As a owner of 3 TV stations WGSR 47.7 WGSR, WMDV 44.1 Martinsville, and WMDV 44.2 Danville I’m limited in what I can do, but I left Sunday’s Rally wanted to do something.  TV and film production is a part of my life, we also own a 5 Plex Cinema in Martinsville.

I’m also blown away with your passion for Wilmington film, most people in your business are thinking about themselves and their next big market move. You LOVE WILMINGTON FILM and it shows.

I want to travel to Raleigh and cover these guys to keep them accountable. You guys are contagious!  Here is a link to the video that we aired.
