About

Wilmington and Southeastern North Carolina has long been a region known for its artwork including the medium of film.  Wilmington's initiation into the film and television industry began in 1984 when producer Dino De Laurentiis purchased a studio here.  The studio operated under the name De Laurentiis Entertainment Group until 1990 when it was purchased by Carolco Pictures.  When Carolco declared bankruptcy in 1996, EUE Screen Gems acquired the studios and renamed it to EUE/Screen Gems Studios.  The studio houses the largest special effects water tank in America and is the largest domestic television and movie production facility outside of California.  Many movies and television productions have come to the area to film here including the movies Maximum Overdrive (1986) and Iron Man 3 (2013) and the television shows Sleepy Hollow, One Tree Hill, and Dawson's Creek.
