A Good Old Fashioned Orgy Filming Locations

‘A Good Old Fashioned Orgy’ was filmed in North Carolina and New York, specifically in Wilmington, Hampstead, New York City, and Suffolk County. The principal photography for the romantic comedy commenced in May 2008 and wrapped up after 30 days of shooting in June of the same year. Interestingly, the production crew did not utilize or create any stage or set as all the scenes were taped using locals as extras. One of the late-night party scenes involved several locals as extras, which took more than 10 hours of filming. Now, let’s navigate all the specific locations that appear in the movie, shall we?

Wilmington, North Carolina

Several pivotal sequences for ‘A Good Old Fashioned Orgy’ were taped in and around Wilmington, a port city and New Hanover County’s county seat. Fred’s Beds at 11125 Highway 17 served as a prominent production location for the comedy movie. Although, the store only agreed to let the cast and crew shoot inside after it was decided that their store’s name appears in the racy scene involving research for the orgy at a sex club.

Interestingly, even after taking permission and commissioning The Wallnuts Crew to draw graffiti on the wall of a local business for a photo shoot scene, the filming unit was intervened by the police, who were unaware of the issued permit. The makers reportedly chose to record scenes in Wilmington as it has a similar architecture as The Hamptons, where the story is set.

Hampstead, North Carolina

Many portions of ‘A Good Old Fashioned Orgy,’ including the house party scenes, were lensed in Hampstead, an unincorporated community and census-designated place in North Carolina’s Pender County. In particular, the property at 659 Red Fox Trail in Hampstead served as Eric’s house, where most of the elaborate party scenes were recorded.

New York City, New York

A few sequences for ‘A Good Old Fashioned Orgy’ were also lensed in New York City, the most populous city in the United States. To be specific, the filming unit set up camp in Manhattan, the most densely populated and also geographically the smallest borough of New York City, to record some scenes with the principal actors.

Suffolk County, New York

For shooting purposes, the production team of the comedy film also traveled to Suffolk County, the easternmost county in the state of New York. In particular, the town of East Hampton and the census-designated place of Amagansett, both located in the county, served as important filming sites for ‘A Good Old Fashioned Orgy.’
