JAMIE FOXX Filming of Law Abiding Citizen in Philadelphia 1/22/09

These photos are terrible. My computer crashed tonight, seems I have too many photos something like 120,000. I have a hard time discarding them, especially my celeb shots. Hopefully I can save the shots I took since January 1st when I did my last back up, so Sasha I am hoping to get those shots to you this weekend.

These photos are terrible for two reasons, dirty City Hall windows, I didn't have the right lens and most importantly, I didn't have access to my photoshop to tweak them because the contrast is off. Here's what the set looked like.

images available here

The director chairs (over the weekend the film will take itself inside to film in the hallways and several different rooms. The crew spent the day changing lighting as they believe the bulbs were too strong and wanted softer lighting)

actors Bruce McGill and Jamie Foxx's stand in's for light checking and placement of actors. These shots were taken about 11AM (I took lunch early). The director is in the blue.

This shot was taken about 4PM. Those poor extra's must have been freezing. Jamie Foxx is on the right in the suit and blue tie.

Tonight they film here in the East Pavillion, but during the day it was the food tent.

After this weekend the film moves out of center city for a few weeks, promising to return in the warmer months of March, but you can still tune into PhillyChitChat as the cast and crew will still call Center City home and they have to eat sometime.

Thanks, Barb and Shasha!!

Given the fact Gerry will play a prisoner, I don't suppose he will be in many exterior shots, do you? I'll bet most of his scenes will be done on a sound stage.

Or probably in the prison they are commandeering in Delaware County, PA. It's a prison that isn't used any longer, and we got the info a while back. But my guess is that between a sound stage and the prison, that's where most of Gerry's filming will take place.

I'm glad we're getting some initial filming pics.

Thank you Barb and Sasha!!!

Right now I'm just hoping someone got photos of the reception with the mayor today that Gals can post. The mayor likely set up the event as publicity for Philadelphia as a city where movies are being made, so it's likely newspapers and other news media were invited.

Thanks, Barb, as usual for all your speed and hard work.

I'm so disappointed that TUT is being postponed so long. I was waiting for April with heartfelt anticipation. The one saving grace was to receive notice today that RNR shipped today from Amazon.

Tks to everyone for the pics and new from DC. I watched the festivities all day, but I'm glad I didn't

know he was there somewhere I would have missed everything looking for him. I'm so glad he has such a facinating time to be young and sucessful in. I'm so grateful he is getting to be a par of all the wonderful things happening around him.

Love him absolutely,

Sandy
