Good but not Great

As happy as I am that this film is coming to film in Wilmington. I can't help but feel this is a publicity stunt to avoid backlash from the local film community. The article today in the paper was very misleading... It stated that the production would be "In Production" for five months... this isn't entirely true. The production is in pre-production until January which only employs few, and small business really doesn't see an impact until the cameras actually are rolling. This doesn't occur until January, and they are filming for four weeks... so to say the production is here for five months is misleading.

Also I have heard that a lot of the crew positions are going to be Los Angeles Crew... I guess since they are in Hawaii filming now, and want to keep a consistent crew during production... So this is good for a few namely the studio, but not for the out of work crew, and small business that will only reap the benefit of four weeks...

I know many will say I should be happy that we have something going on... well I hold myself , and the NC film Community to a higher standard... I want to get to the point were the Governor isn't making speeches about films coming in... we should be rolling them in and out...

I'm excited for the film business "Journey 2" will bring, but we need much more...
