The price of EUE/Screen Gems’ sound stage/green screen space is negotiable, according to Executive Vice President Bill Vassar.
The studio, which is one of the largest on the East Coast, usually deals with large productions. But it has provided green screen services and lighting and grip services to independent productions at reduced rates when the space and equipment is available.
Wilmington does offer alternative sites, however.
Studio 3, operated by Sheffield Entertainment Studios at 301 Raleigh St., Wilmington [Map this], has a 32- by 18-foot green screen that filmmakers can use in the 2,700-foot space. Bud Dowdy, owner, said he has been told his services are cheaper than EUE/Screen Gems.
Michele Seidman, owner of The Actors’ Edge and “Auditions ‘R’ Us” also offers a 10- by 12-foot green screen service in Wilmington.
Also, Greenfield Studios at 1316 S. Fifth Ave., Wilmington [Map this], offers two sound stages which are 2,000 square feet and 3,600 square feet. Right now, you’ll need your own green screen. Owner Eric DeYoung said there are plans to have a green screen added to his business’ services soon.
