Overview

<i>The Color Purple</i>, <i>The Last of the Mohicans</i>, <i>Dirty Dancing</i>, <i>Bull Durham</i>, <i>Blue Velvet</i>, <i>Dawson’s Creek</i>, <i>Matlock</i>—these blockbusters, cultural touchstones, and television faves are among the hundreds of productions made in North Carolina. For nearly two decades, North Carolina has ranked behind only California and New York in film production. But even seasoned film junkies will be surprised to learn the full breadth of the industry in the Tar Heel State. The list of stars who have enjoyed the state’s charms includes Anthony Hopkins, Kevin Costner, Halle Berry, Jodie Foster, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ashley Judd, and Denzel Washington.

<i>Film Junkie’s Guide to North Carolina</i> is the first and only travel guide to detail locations where films were made across the state, from the mountains to the sea, in places large and small. It presents a unique and lively perspective on Tar Heel film through a prism that blends history and pop culture. The Star Tracks sections will take you to sites where stars, directors, and crewmembers have slept, dined, and played. Also included are trivia questions that will test your North Carolina film expertise and side bars focusing on film festivals, outdoor dramas, Tar Heel authors whose work has been adapted for the screen, and other movie-related tidbits.

You’ll find this guide useful and fun whether you’re searching out sites from a well-loved film, looking for film locations when you’re visiting a particular town, trying to identify sites in that Saturday-night video, or just browsing in your armchair.

Meet the Author

In 1995, Connie Nelson started her own public relations business and continued to work with Reel Carolina and other magazines. All the while, she maintained an agent, took acting classes, and auditioned. Much to her dismay, her writing talent was more in demand than her acting abilities. As fewer auditions materialized, it was time for Connie to make some major career decisions. She decided to return to the job market and was hired by the Cape Fear Coast Convention and Visitors Bureau, where she has worked as communications/public relations director for since 1998.
In addition her day job in tourism, Connie has taught classes on travel & tourism and public speaking for the University of North Carolina Wilmington. Her writing has appeared in Taste Full magazine, Wilmington magazine, and E - The Environmental Magazine. She lives in Wilmington, North Carolina, and is a member of the Society of American Travel Writers and Public Relations Society of America.

Floyd Harris moved to the Wilmington area in 1994, where he worked as a writer, editor, movie extra, tutor, teacher, and librarian. He met Connie Nelson while working as a writer and critic for Reel Carolina Journal of Film and Video. He was an extra in the TV film Truman Capote's One Christmas, where he shot a scene with Henry Winkler and Swoozie Kurtz. To support and complement his writing career, Floyd worked at the D. H. Hill Library at North Carolina State University and at the Pender County Public Library.

Floyd continued his friendship with Connie after their days at Reel Carolina. One day at lunch, she shared the idea for the Film Junkie’s Guide to North Carolina with him. While researching and writing the book, he worked on a short novel inspired by his experience. His work has been published in Golf Journal, Windhover, Rocket Literary Quarterly, and Asylum Arts Annual. Floyd lives in Raleigh, North Carolina.
