So they're filming "Smash" on my block

And some of the crew (new to the business) asked if I was "excited" to watch it happening.  Well, I'm not and neither is anyone else. Everyone and their Mother-in-Law shoot films and TV shows on my block...

But this is how it looked.

The above scene was shot, over and over again.

Above, is the photographer who works for the company. He's shooting with a 400mm lens.

Above he pauses and let's a studio technician see how it looks through his lens.

Above, one of the three of four Paparazzi, taking advantage of an opportunity to shoot some celebrities.

And over and over again the same routine. The camera man must have one hell of a steady hand. Having to back up while shooting handheld, even with a shoulder harness must be tough.
