This morning we woke up to cries of "ACTION!"...and for once it wasn't the newlyweds in the next apartment!
They were filming a commercial/TV show/film across the street from us. The crew was fairly small so I assume it wasn't a film, part of it involved three actors driving slowly past in a red convertible while talking, so may not be a commercial either. They also filmed actors walking down the sidewalk and some scenes in the park. I attempted to offer my considerable thespian skills but they said they already had plenty of 'parked cars' lining the street, whatever THAT meant.
The batteries were dead on the good camera, so I used the old one so the photos are grainy from it's zoom...
The red convertible...a camera was mounted to the front plus they had a track laid for a rolling camera to shoot from the side later. They just slowly drove back and forth, over and over. Stopping in between takes for some woman to come out and comb their hair and powder their noses.
Everything seems to be computerized, even the director sat at this table watching a monitor while bellowing directions...
Here a young lady crosses the sidewalk, stops, waits until 'CUT!', then returns to her original spot and does it again. There were several other young ladies and gentlemen doing the exact same thing.I
certainly could do that! I'm damn near a highly paid professional if I was ever to be paid!
They are still shooting but further back into the trees. I shall promptly report if Angelina or Brad show up! In the meantime I shall take a large sheet and paint my telephonic communications device number on it so they are aware that I'm available...I'd even work scale!
