"HAPPY" at Wrightsville Beach

WRIGHTSVILLE, N.C. – In just 24 hours, a video concept that is sweeping the world is sweeping through this popular beach community, the Wilmington, N.C., region and beyond. It’s the locally produced
“Happy” video (www.vimeo.com/96612830) from photographers Ned Leary and Will Page — which uniquely features Wrightsville Beach, N.C. — and it’s garnered more than 30,000 views on the Internet in
just one day.

“Happy” is sung by Pharrell Williams and originally appeared on the “Despicable Me 2” soundtrack. Since its release, the song has created a buzz around the world with its catchy lyrics and upbeat message. The
innovative local video, which features the song as the backdrop, captures people around Wrightsville Beach who are enjoying life, whether it’s at the beach, the fish market, a restaurant or the grocery store.

“Wrightsville Beach is such a wonderful place to live that we decided it would be great to feature our hometown with a ‘Happy’ video,” said Ned Leary, founder of Ned Leary Photography (www.nedleary.com). “We were simply amazed by the incredible response in such a short period of time

— more than 30,000 views in 24 hours, and the numbers are still climbing.”

Leary, who specializes in landscape and portrait photography, and Page, who specializes in wedding and portrait photography and videography, saw the challenge of creating a video that features their hometown. Since they love creative challenges, they spent more than 65 hours over three weeks putting together the video. They shot more than 100 people, and then spent weeks editing, using time-lapse photography and drone footage. Individual response to the video has been overwhelming as well. Leary said he’s had people tell him the video brought tears to their eyes and reminded them why they live in Wrightsville Beach. In addition,

Leary said he’s had people say they used to live in the area, and the video makes them want to move back.

“Not only do we hope the video makes people ‘happy,’” Leary said, “but we hope it will bring people to Wrightsville Beach and the Wilmington area to vacation and live. It’s a great place to be, and we want to share that with the world.”

A quintessential “idea man,” Leary’s mind is always churning on ways to transform the normal into the extraordinary. In his earlier corporate life as R. J. Reynolds president of Sports Marketing Enterprises, he
was the creative mind behind national ad campaigns and NASCAR Winston Cup promotions. Since submitting to his passion for photography, particularly of the Wrightsville Beach area, creative
projects include “Called to Sea,” a photographic account of the lifecycle of loggerhead sea turtles; “44 Accesses,” extraordinary photography of otherwise ordinary entrances to Wrightsville Beach; and “The

Loop Dog” series of calendars. Leary frames his work in century-old Cape Fear River wood. Page, a Burlington, NC native, is a student at the University of North Carolina – Wilmington, where he studies business. His web site is www.willpagephoto.com.



Thanks!

Wilmington new home to Sleepy Hollow as studio passes over Salisbury.

Wilmington has become the new Sleepy Hollow, beating out Salisbury as the main location for 20th Century Fox’s upcoming supernatural TV series.

Although the studio filmed extensively in Salisbury this spring for the pilot, executives chose to locate the series in Wilmington for financial and creative reasons, said Aaron Syrett, director of the N.C. Film Office.

My sister and I have an ongoing argument as to which gracious southern city — Savannah or Charleston — is the more charming. She gives an edge — a very slight edge — to Savannah, and I give the edge — also, very slight — to Charleston.

ME AND MY WIFE AND OUR FAMILY WAS AT DOWNTOWN WILMINGTON AT FAT TONY'S PUB ITALIAN RESTAURANT IN WILMINGTON NORTH CAROLINA JULY 2019
Please read my blog post on my weekend in Wilmington! Thank you!
FINKELSTEIN'S MUSIC IS OPEN, despite the Star News saying they weren't. A reporter named Hunter Imgram rode down Front Street and just declared it to be out of business WITHOUT CONFIRMING HIS FACTS AT ALL. FINKELSTEIN'S HAS BEEN THERE SINCE 1906 AND IT IS STILL THERE. A Reporter's job is to confirm the facts they think they have found, especially when all you have to do is walk through the front door or pick up the phone and call. This fellow just declared them to be out of business based on rank speculation, without bothering to talk to anyone on the street, any one of which could have told you they were there. Star News, you need to confirm facts from Mr. Imgram before you print them, because he doesn't. Why do you put a reporter out on the streets that doesn't confirm his facts?
