Back in October we got a few questions from people who spotted a film shoot in downtown Albany and we're curious about what it was for. Well... (after long delay)... the answer is embedded above.
The shoot was for a series of TV spots from a American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons campaign aimed at getting people to be more careful about using a mobile while walking. The org says the injuries from "distracted walking" are on the rise.
The spots were filmed on James Street near State Street, which was made up to look like a big(ger) city. If you look closely, you'll recognize some of the signs and buildings. The production company was FilmHouse, the company based at the Central New York Hub for Emerging Nano Industries near Syracuse that was announced last summer by the Cuomo admin.
We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up.
