3 Days, 7 Film Projects In DUMBO and Brooklyn Heights

Wednesday, Tommy; Thursday, Fiat, DUMBO
It used to be maybe a film or two a week would take over DUMBO and Brooklyn Heights. This week, seven projects in three days have filled the narrow streets with film trucks and production equipment.

On Wednesday, Tommy was filmed on Front and Washington Streets.(Two years ago another Tommy was filmed in DUMBO.)

On Thursday, a company called Supply and Demand filmed a commercial for Fiat in DUMBO.

A commercial for Tiffany's filmed in Brooklyn Heights Wednesday.

Thursday, Now You See Me, DUMBO
A feature film called “Now You See Me” -- a thriller about “FBI agents tracking a team of illusionists who pull off bank heists during their performances --  filmed in DUMBO Thursday. (Starring Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Isla Fisher, Mark Ruffalo and Morgan Freeman.)

Wednesday, Cablevision project; Friday, Golden Boy, Brooklyn Heights

CBS's Golden Boy cop drama will be filming or parking film trucks and equipment on Cadman Plaza West and many other streets in Brooklyn Heights, including Remsen Street and Montague Terrace today.

Friday, Golden Boy, DUMBO
Golden Boy is also filming in DUMBO today.

Friday, People Kissing, DUMBO
French indie film “People Kissing” will be filming in DUMBO today, and in Brooklyn Heights today as well (along Clinton Street and on Montague Street). They may trip over the crews filming Golden Boy.

We didn't count the promotional piece being filmed by the Jehovah's Witnesses on Jay Street in DUMBO this week because they took over their own parking lot, not a city street.

Funny how the rich folks are so angry about the bus situation in DUMBO but I am waiting for the rant about films and construction crews!
