Locations needed for Feature Films etc
(These locations must be in Nassau County)
For HBO Movie, “Too Big to Fail”, they’re seeking a cavernous, tall ceiling, old bank-like building for a financial institution, along the lines of a Cipriani in NYC
For feature film, “The Great Gatsby.” The movie will probably be filmed next spring/ summer. Baz Luhrmann is directing. They are looking for a red brick/ Greek revival type mansion rather than the castle look. The second house is what Beacon Tower looked like - almost chateau with point. Not cast yet.
Marvel Studios feature film, “The Avengers,” is looking for a large lab like building with an atrium. Must be modern, grand and circular. Big shoot.
Paradox, Inc. needs a spacious Turkish bath for a Chromeo music video for one day during the last week of September. This is for a 40 person shoot.
Travel Channel needs a 1900's style cobblestone road surrounded by grass, trees, a brick building, possibly old-fashioned lamp posts and arches for one day the end of next week for a program, "Mysteries at the Museum."
If you have any suggestions for these locations, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and reference the project name – thank you!
