Last night, the area was ablaze with activity, this time on a side street
just south of the school. This country road has houses along it that date back
to the 1940s and 50s. There was a crew of at least 100, tons of equipment and
bright lights lit up the area once again. There were two Panaflex cameras ready,
one mounted on a motorized cart. Although I had my camera ready, there was no
place to pull off the road to observe the filming and security whisked me out of
there in a hurry, yelling "no pictures". Peter Jackson was there, preparing to
direct the cameras into position. As of late this afternoon, They are done!
Gone! Alas, this unique experience has come to an end. My only regret is that I
didn't take more pictures. I don't expect to see this kind of excitement in my
neighborhood for a long time to come. However, there is a good film to look
forward to this summer.
Also Philly.com has a story here is the link: http://www.philly.com/inquirer/local/pa/chester/nabes/20071118_School_Notes_3.html
Thanks to Dana (again!) for the photos and set report:
I don't know if you want to use these photos, but I took them Friday
morning.Thursday night, Jackson and crew was filming at this house. I was
unableto get any pictures that night because security was so damned tight.This
is the house they were filming at. By yesterday afternoon, the crew was
completelygone from the township. The film crew has moved back to Malvern and
startedfilming again last night. They will be filming Monday, Tuesday &
Wednesday and the week after Thanksgiving.
