Guess Who’s Filming on the Avenue Right Now….
Casey Sarvinski, a Pepperwood farmer who has just finished picking produce for Arcata’s market tomorrow, tells us that there is a film production crew filming [cue breathless voice] right this very minute! [9 p.m. on Friday night.]
Sarvinski says that the California Highway Patrol have traffic controlled on the Avenue of the Giants. The road, he said, is narrowed to one lane just north of Pepperwood. The filming is apparently taking place off in the woods a bit. “They have large lights in one particular area [about] 60 feet off the road,” Sarvinski explained.
The local farmer thinks its “cool” that the filming is happening but he just wishes, “they would’ve bought some tomatoes while setting up today.”
UPDATE 8:32 a.m.: Casey Sarvinski sent us this photo from today. If you drive the Avenue to see the filming, stop at the first stand heading south and buy some of his fresh produce. Maybe he’ll have some tidbits on what’s happening.
