Nearby residents, park patrons, motorists and bicyclists should be aware that there is filming activity scheduled for Sunday, December 20th at Point Vicente Park/Civic Center and in the public right-of-way of Crest Rd., just west of Hawthorne Blvd. The cast and crew for a TV commercial will set up the production base camp at Point Vicente Park/Civic Center from 5:00 AM to 7:00 PM. The commercial will be filming at the Chase Bank branch at Hawthorne Blvd. and Crest Rd., and on-street parking along the north side of Crest Rd. will be temporarily prohibited. The public sidewalks adjacent to the bank will remain accessible to pedestrians, although there may be very brief closures while exterior filming on the bank property is occurring. The production involves a total cast and crew of 70 persons and 1 pig (no, we’re not kidding about the pig). Public access to and parking for Rancho Caninos Dog Park, Peninsula Seniors, Palos Verdes on the Net and other park amenities will be maintained during this film shoot, but there will be very limited public parking available in the main parking lot on the east side of City Hall.
For questions about filming in Rancho Palos Verdes, please contact the City’s Film Permit Desk at (310) 544-5226 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
