Wilmington’s history with the film and television industry began in 1983 when producer Dino de Laurentiis came to the region to produce the film, “Fire Starter”. At that time, Wilmington was a sleepy Southern coastal town. From those humble beginnings, Wilmington has almost tripled in size and hosted 138 feature films and 162 television productions.
Dino de Laurentiis also built a studio which has become one of the largest full service studio facilities in the country: EUE Screen Gems Studios with a fifty acre studio lot and ten purpose-built sound stages.
So you see, Wilmington has a long history with film and television production. It has become part of the fabric of the community. Wilmington did not just pop onto the film scene ten years ago; we have been in the production business since productions went “on location” to work.
So come and experience our world-class crews. Experience our studio. Experience our locations. Experience our film friendly atmosphere. Experience our quality of life. Experience Wilmington.
