Making Another Movie in Pittsburgh

It’s always good news for the Burgh when the filmmakers come to town.

The movie making industry is thriving in Pittsburgh.  Here’s a list of films shot in Pittsburgh.

I saw a number of trucks and trailers in an East Liberty parking lot as I drove to school, early this morning.

On the way home, I drove by again and asked a man in a truck with the door open what was being filmed.  He told me Kerosene, The Last Witch Hunter. (with Van Diesel )

I called to him and said “Enjoy the city while you’re here” and he said “I live here”

then he told me that 98% of the crew live in Pittsburgh.

He was very nice and I drove around the Penn Circle to get home and saw more trucks, lights and filming.

Stalled traffic made it easy to catch a couple of quick shots.  On the way back from Bernadette’s  South Side Bday party I asked Steve to swing by the route again on the way home.  Still working into the night.

Not much to see really but a road closed and a blur of the Motor Square Garden dome in the background.

Tom Cruise Movie, ONE SHOT, Lights Up 10th Street Bridge Wednesday Night

The movie is causing a buzz and some traffic around the Burgh.  One Shot is the name of the film after a novel by Lee Child.   On the way to my photo class I saw the lights set up on the bridge and a few giant movie lights on top of some buildings.  Heard on the radio Armstrong Tunnels would be closed.  Remembered my photo for the weekly challenge of fall, with the 10th St Bridge in the autumn light and thought I would go my usual school route.  Here is the series of bridge shots taken on the way home from class Wednesday night. A circuitous route but worth the detour in my opinion.

I could hear and see a car race and screech across the bridge as I photographed.  Next time I will bring a spotter to keep watch as I pulled the car over but it is dark and a bit creepy up on the top of Arlington Avenue, my route home from school. I have shot from this angle before and here is the link to the daytime photo.

Photo four has a bright movie light on the right of the photo.
