Where were the 'Three ads outside' really?

Where were the 'Three ads outside' really?

North Carolina is no stranger to Hollywood: it replaced the Catskills in Dirty Dancing (actually Lake Lure), "The arena" Y "District 12" in The Hunger Games (also know as Asheville), and the fictional city of Capeside, supposedly in Massachusetts, in Dawson's creek (Wilmington)

So when the Oscar-nominated film producer Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri He went to the NC Film Office, the team knew they had a lot of work to do. They taught director Martin McDonagh more than a dozen cities before selecting Jackson, Buncombe and Haywood counties to collectively represent the role of Ebbing, according to the director of NC Film Office, Guy Gaster.

The filming took place between February and June 2016 and attracted many businesses to the city: more than 350 jobs and $ 12.6 million spent in the state. The award-winning film at the Golden Globe, stars Frances McDormand as a mother who publicly criticizes the local sheriff for not solving her daughter's murder. The Academy has nominated her for seven Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Actress. Check out the most emblematic locations of the film:

1. The police station

Finding a street with two suitable buildings facing each other, where you could look through the windows from the other side of the street, was one of the key concerns for the film's director, says Gaster. McDonagh found the ideal place in downtown Sylva, North Carolina. A little paint and new signage turned the furniture store Sassy Frass into the Ebbing Police Department.

2. The advertising company

Across the street, Jackson's shop, Sylva, served as the Red Welby office, where Frances McDormand's character rents out his famous billboards. The office space above is private, but the crucial window is visible from Main Street.

3. The gift shop

Mildred's workplace is actually a gourmet food and wine shop, although it also sells gifts. Goes through Country Traditions in Dillsboro, about 3 km west of downtown Sylva, to discover the scenery of the movie.
