Last nights shoot was inside of the Land Title Building on Broad Street (left). They lit up the surrounding buildings for the background.
There was a light shining from the top of the Ritz Carlton Hotel onto the Land Title Building. I arrived about 10PM and stayed til 530AM waiting for the outdoor scene that was scheduled to be shot. The background "picture cars" arrived about 1AM, and it was originally scheduled for a 3AM shoot, but problems arose.
It was cold. I was cold. Here the food craft is wheeling in some Irish Stew for the actors including Terrence Howard. It was his first night on the set. (OK Quick story, I think I only told it on Fox 29 and didn't write it out. Colin Farrell went to the Sporting Club with his bodyguard, not training as I first thought, anyway girl behind check in desk said I will look that up for you Mr Firth. At which Colin replied, yea if I were a foot taller and had some class. I'm Colin Farrell. So funny. I like him)
Some people were in a different spirit
by the way, the freaks do come out at night
I waited 6 hours, and all I got was an ok picture of Colin Farrell. I completely forgot to change my batteries after shoot the Fairmount Conservancy event, and the other shots were dark. wah wahh. But I have a couple fun stories I'm gonna share with you next week on Fox 29 Philly that I think you'll like. Oh BTW they never filmed the outside scene I was tweeting about. Seems the film schedule had gone past their 12 hrs of continuous work and for union sake they have to pack it in. So at 530AM we all called it a night. (which was actually 13 hrs past start time.) Colin Farrell and his sister Claudine Farrell leave the set of 'Dead Man Down' in Philadelphia where filming has been taking place Philadelphia, US. Note the script in her hand. He's a fast walker, even faster than she is.
