WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – The Wilmington Regional Film Commission will be adding a location scout to their team this fall to expand their existing database.
Right now, the film commission has about 3,300 locations on file. The goal is to add more local properties, in order to give a broad idea of potential shooting locations to productions considering filming in the area.
"We're already pretty well known for being a film-friendly town with great crew and support services, and also for having a wide range of types of locations," said Director Johnny Griffin in a news release. "However, the more of a picture we can paint of the complete range of location options available, the more productions we can potentially attract."
According to the film commission, productions weigh many factors and available locations when considering a city to film its project. The more closely the locations match the vision, the easier that aspect of filming will be.
Griffin is encouraging anyone with "interesting property" in the area to contact the film commission at (910) 343-3456 or email@example.com. Properties can be anything from a warehouse or a barn to a restaurant, shop, house or farm.
