PERHAPS the most telling tale
of love for Wilmington is not
from the people who have lived
in the city for a long time or recently
found residence, but from those who
have been employed in the industry
and continually found their path
bringing them back.
Charlotte Oden is a freelance artist
and designer who graduated from the
Savannah College of Art and Design
in Georgia. She’s moved and worked
between Savannah, Wilmington
and Greensboro. Oden got her start
in Wilmington in 2014 as the art
department production assistant on
the Nicholas Sparks film, The Longest
Ride. Since then her livelihood has
required her to travel, but she keeps
finding her way back to Wilmington.
“I think more actors will continue
to do the same as film continues to
come back to the area,” said Oden.
She believes Wilmington is about
to be busy again because people
love to work in the area. She says
Wilmington is close to a variety of
shooting locations, it has a friendly
local environment, a talented local
crew and sound stages.
Most recently, Oden’s career path
brought her back to Wilmington as a
set costumer for the production Uncle
Geannine M. Boyette practices
in the areas of Domestic and
Criminal Law, dealing with
issues such as Child Custody
and Support, Spousal Support,
Equitable Distribution, Divorce,
DWI, criminal and traffic violations.
Geannine also devotes a fair share
of her practice to defending
individuals against the
Department of Social Services.
