Earlier this week the management of our building posted up a filming survey in our elevator with this little nugget of fun highlighted:
9/23 & 9/24 – FULL LOAD AUTOMATIC GUNFIRE, squib hits to bodies, molotov cocktails, 9/22-9/24 muzzle flashes and smoke. 9/22-9/24 – Car crash scene (with a ramp), riot scenes, extras coming out of MTA stations, MANY weapons brandished
So it looks like downtown is gonna get a little crazy the 22nd through the 24th of this month… oh and the best part is the hours will be from 7:00pm to 8:00am! Joy… well maybe I’ll go down and take some photos of the mayhem. I assume I will be able to hear it from my loft which is two blocks away from the action.
UPDATE: I gave the production unit manager a call and asked if I could come down and check out the shoot on Thursday and he said it would be cool, but if I wanted to take photos I would have to talk to the unit publicist whom I called and left a message with.
UPDATE 2: So I just heard back from the publicist and it is a no go on the photos, but I talked to the production manager again and he said that I am welcome to come down and watch the stunts tomorrow night, so I’ll take notes and write and descriptive post about what I saw.
