They’re shooting Gotham in my neighborhood
Since we’re on the topic of talking about the city and real life, there’s always a movie or television shoot going on somewhere.
It does get to be a bit annoying to have a million people milling about and blocking traffic for essentially entertainment purposes when you actually have some place to be.
The other night, an entire block near my house was lit up bright as day in the middle of the night for a scene from Gotham and I had to walk all the way around the other side to just cross the street.
That picture above was taken at maybe midnight but a crane with the brightest light I’d ever seen lit up the whole block.
And outside my window this morning there were three scouts laying out shots for something else for what seemed like hour. I finally had to ask them to leave, which they were nice enough to do.
But still I have to admit that I’m always jazzed when I see someplace I recognize on the big or little screen.
Suppose it’s just like everything else in life, you want the results of things without having to put in the effort to have them done.
Me: Fellas, my desk is right there, do you mind keeping it down?
Him: Oh, sorry, sorry, we were working on a shoot.
Me: (laughing) I guessed that part.
Location: Queens, shortly
Music: Hypocrites. You’re all here for the very same reason.
