This scene featured a woman driving a firewood truck. The camera was aimed into the cab. I look around, and who do I see, but Hillary Derby, the costumer! She’s going over the call sheet, which informs the cast and crew where they should report on a particular day of filming). I stuck close to the Gloucester Police officer, because you’re usually safe from getting into the scene when next to them.
Here’s the last scene of the daytime, the firewood truck driving away. It was being pushed for some cinematic reason. There was supposed to be a kitten in the scene, but I never saw it. Notice the unusual reflection on the side of the building across Center Street (where Gabriel’s Antiques is).
Night filming on Main Street. about 5:30. Very impressive to see the setup. They’ve got a ton of equipment to stow away for tomorrow.

Great shots and descriptions!
Nice job, Fred.
The woman in the truck is actress and screenwriter Zoe Kazan http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zoe_Kazan
At one point yesterday, the truck wouldn’t start and a crew member made a run to Tally’s for gas.
Also on the set yesterday was Richard Jenkins (Six Feet Under).
As a photographer I really enjoy (and learn) by watching film crews work with state-of-the-art photo gear. Wondering if they are using that massive scrim for bouncing light or diffusing or both. Thanks for taking the time to document it Fred.
Thanks Kathy and Lowell and Marty. I’m not sure I’ll do yet another snow shot, but I may walk down there anyway. I think it’s been covered pretty thoroughly.
Great job Fred ! FYI. The Cop you were standing next to is Kevin Mackey. He is a pretty nice guy and easy to talk to.
Thanks Frank. I never met a policeman I couldn’t talk to you. I met Officer Mackey 15 years ago in the gallery.
Nice reply here Fred 🙂
This is so much fun. Thanks for the great photos.
Does anyone have a list of the tv shows and movie filmed in Gloucester? Hope I’m not asking a question that has been beat to death! Fred, granddaughter was sporting your “in cod we trust ” shirt today 😉
I have Somewhere a VHS tape of route 66 filmed on rocky neck back in the 60s.
