Gerald Waller is a former vice president of studio operations with EUE Screen Gems Studios-North Carolina in Wilmington, which has become a major East Coast location for film and television production in recent years.Shows such as "Dawson's Creek" and "One Tree Hill" have been shot in the Wilmington area.Waller said Kinston's film commission had to be community-oriented to be successful."The public has to be involved in the process," he said."You have to make sure, when you sell the area, to make sure everyone is on board."Waller walked the group through the array of things they needed to entice filmmakers to Kinston, Lenoir County and the surrounding areas, including a list of ideal locations, all necessary contacts to approve shooting at those locations and the approval of everyone affected by a film crew's presence, such as merchants, residents or property owners.A local film commission must also have a list of amenities for film productions on hand, including retail stores, restaurants, lodging, transportation, potential crew members and others."You have to package everything you have to offer . . . the location is the hook, but then you have to back that up with resources," Waller explained.#8226 Gerald Waller, retired studio executive, EUE Screen Gems Studios-North Carolina
