NC Film Office reports strong mid-year totals

Posted: Updated:
WILMINGTON, N.C. -

The North Carolina Film Office has released mid-year figures for 2013. The report shows more than $250 million in direct in-state spending and 25,000 job opportunities for North Carolinians.

As of July 1, more than 35 productions have filed "intent to film" forms indicating that they have filmed or will film in the Tar Heel State. The job opportunities include more than 3,000 crew positions, 1,000 talent opportunities and more than 21,000 background talent positions.

Much of this year's income comes from television shows filmed in the state. HBO's Eastbound and Down, multi-award winner Homeland, NBC's Revolution and the CBS summer breakout series Under the Dome all filmed here.

The North Carolina Film Office says the mid-year figures are a strong follow-up to 2012's record-breaking year-end totals, which showed more than $376 million in direct in-state spending. Last year's activity created nearly 20,000 job opportunities.

The North Carolina Film Office is part of the state Division of Tourism, Film and Sports Development within the Department of Commerce.
