Wilmington: Best Place for Indie Filmmaking


According to MovieMaker.com Wilmington, NC is one of the top 25 cities for the best places to make movies.  The site's analysis used measures such as the economy, cost of living, average salary, unemployment rate, job growth, median home price and crime rate.

MovieMaker also added in the number of film schools, festivals, movie-related vendors and local movie theaters. As we as factored in the current production scene, i.e. production days, and size of talent pool. Extra credit was given for cities doing something unique—like special “green” efforts.

Financial incentives were also a plus.  Keep up the good work North Carolina!

    I should probably be keeping this to myself, but I just entered my film 'Crying shame' into this contest run by AMC to get your indie films into theaters. Well worth a check out if you have a finished project. Here's the link: http://bit.ly/9msubK
