I was walking on the Pier the afternoon and they were shooting a Music Video.  I am not sure which one but at first I thought they were making a movie.  I have seen them shoot CSI Miami at the Rivers End Cafe at the end of First Street.  They even brought really big rocks to put at the end of the Jetty.

Making Music Video

 I learned later that it was Colbie Caillat that was making a video.  This was worth the short diversion in my business day.

I drove along Ocean Avenue to Main Street when I notice a lot of trucks and tents in the parking lot just south of the Seal Beach pier.  I didn’t know what was happening so I parked my car and walked down to find out.

I did not learn much but I did notice that Flying Monkey Films was involved – I don’t know if they were supporting the filming or leading it – but the crew was getting things ready to film two vehicles (a van and a woody) and some action near the van.  There were two performers (one was in a black dress – not normal beach attire) in the area.

If anyone knows what this was for, please let me know by commenting to this blog post.  I’ll check back later.

This is just a reminder that the Belmont Shore car show is fast arriving.  Mark September 7 on your calendar.  This’ll be a great time to see vintage cars (vintage in this case is pre-1975) on display along 2nd Street.

See you there!
