HBO Shooting “Recount” Downtown Here This Week

5 11 2007

It’s pretty exciting! Streets are blocked off and that Authentic Capital City Christmas Effect is everywhere (remember just how late that pesky presidential cliffhanger went into December?) from big red bows and twinkle lights on poles and in trees, to bagpipes, marching bands and horsedrawn wagons —
Same basic inconvenience of the locals, but more festive than football and way more so than the boot camp verdict race protests downtown the past couple of weeks.

We know some of the 500 or so extras (atmospheric personnel?) and lots of folks who work downtown in offices with windows (wonder how easy they are finding lunch to get?) and FavD has evening rehearsal there all week, so I’ll try to keep Snook readers updated and entertained with little stories about it, as shooting unfolds . . .
