Record Breaking Year for the Piedmont Triad
2012 Record year for Filmmaking in the Piedmont Triad
NC saw a record year for filmmaking spending in 2012 and we were fortunate to have our fair share of successes right here in the Piedmont Triad region. 2012 was one of our busiest and most successful years in our office's 20 year history for recruiting lucrative film and TV projects.
We hosted four feature projects last year, You Are Here directed by Matthew Weiner (creator of the award winning TV series Mad Men) starring Owen Wilson, Zach Galiafiankis and Amy Poehler, Hallmark TV movie The Confession directed by Michael Landon Jr., Goodbye to All That starring Paul Schneider and The Ultimate Life starring Peter Fonda.
Other productions we helped to facilitate include Stars In Danger, The X-Factor, the Travel Channel's series Baggage Battles, a locally produced movie Susie's Hope and numerous commercials and still photography shoots.
The economic impact of these films, TV segments, commercials and still photography shoots was $32 million.
