Wilmington NC: Hollywood Production Buzzing in Town

With gorgeous locations such as these including the beaches why would Wilmington be left out by the film community? They haven't been especially since the NC legislature increased the incentives for films. Wilmington is booming with Hollywood film production teams. Of course we have One Tree Hill in town for filming their 8 th season. We do hope they will be back for their #9th season. They bring lots of money to town in terms of purchasing and spending power not to mention the number of people they employ in the general area and the " Star power" to boot including the Rock among other stars in town for the work.
We do have a number of films starting up in the area. At EUE/Screen Gems Studios the 3D feature " Journey 2: THe Mysterious Island" is in full production. The Warner Brothers Studios/ABC Family Movie titled "Cinderella Story" is filming in town this month. Also a new television show "playing with Guns" will have its trucks moving cameras and other equipment around town.
I did get calls from one production assistant to help with location shots for some filming. They scout locations all over Wilmington for shots. This is an exciting time for our area...
