We take projects from script to screen with everything in between! The past five decades, beautiful Wilmington, North Carolina has become the eastern Carolinas’ production hub. Nestled between the famous Cape Fear River and stunning coastal beaches we have blossomed into a world-class production community showcased by our top-notch films, successful TV series, award-winning commercial campaigns, outstanding music videos and creative magazine and catalog shoots!

FILMington, NC started ROLLING back in 1983, when thee Frank Capra Jr. was producing a film adaptation of the Steven King novel “Firestarter” and needed a grand antebellum mansion. His keen scouting eye noticed one of our plantations on a magazine cover so he sought it out in person and the rest is movie-magic history. Mr. Capra fell so in love with the Wilmington area that he persuaded Dino De Laurentis, (who had financed that film), to actually build a studio here and world-class crew talent quickly followed! That D.E.G. Studios, later became CAROLCO Studios, then EUE Screen Gems Studios, and now Cinespace!

Today, The Wilmington Regional Film Commission, Inc. is the central resource for productions seeking information on filming in this region. Johnny Griffin and his staff know this area inside and out, our excellent support services and crew options and are ready to help advise you on next-steps.

We also have quite a deep pool of professional actors, talented background artists and specialty performers. FILMington, NC is thousands of award-winning crew members, talented craftsmen and artists, reliable infrastructure support services, friendly local business owners and citizens, all with our un-matched, spectacular locations!
