Click here and here for other new and re-edited photos from the filming of CBGB in Savannah in July 2012.
I spent part of several days hanging around the public outdoor shoots along Congress Street.
On this particular day, the shoot just moved west over a period of several hours, with exterior filming near a somewhat dilapidated store, on a vacant lot across from Belford’s, and in front of the former location of Universe Trading Company on Ellis Square.
You’ll see the dog playing Johnathan here, plus his handler Renee’ DeRossett. My friend Ian is one of the bums stumbling across the street there at the end.
You’ll note that, as Hilly Kristal, Alan Rickman (yes that’s him with the poofy reddish hair) hardly changes expression in these photos. That’s because the character hardly changes expression in the film. A challenge, to say the least, to have a lead character who emotes so little and so subtly.
So mostly here you can see the crew, the cars, and so forth.
