Thanks to a moderate climate, a diversity of natural beauty, rural and urban locations, and generous incentives offered by the state, North Carolina has become quite popular as a backdrop for local, independent and major film productions. Among the numerous films that have done location shooting here in recent years are The Green Mile, The Hunger Games, Iron Man 3, A Walk To Remember, and Forrest Gump, to name a few. Additionally, a number of popular television series have been filmed in North Carolina, including Dawson's Creek, One Tree Hill, and Revolution.

Here on this page, you'll find profiles of a number of talented film professionals who have all received a top-shelf education as students of the Film Connection Film Institute of North Carolina. Every one of these individuals was personally mentored and trained in actual production companies and on-the-job by some of the most acclaimed filmmakers in the industry today. We encourage you to look at the websites of these up-and-coming filmmakers to see what professional services they offer, as well as view their recent projects and clientele.
