Area Filming Includes Park Place Locale

Notice of no parking for filming on Park Place.

Notice of no parking for filming on Park Place.

Late last week I was notified that Pictureshow Productions, a D.C.-based production company, was scheduled to film a project in various locations, including areas of Park View and Petworth. These locations included:

  • Ingraham St NW between 2nd and 3rd Streets;
  • New Hampshire Ave NW between Quincy and Randolph Streets;
  • Park Pl NW between Otis and Manor Places; and,
  • Otis St NE between 18th and 20th Streets (Dwight A. Moseley Field)

The scheduled filming dates were on Friday through Sunday, but it is unknown if the weather resulted in any need for rescheduling.

In following up with the DC Office of Motion Picture and TV Development, I learned that the project lists the Producer/Director as George Pelecanos and the Production Manager as Kyle Crosby. The project they’re working on is tentatively entitled Confidential Informant with the logline: “ A lifelong CI makes one last effort to earn his father’s love and respect.” “Confidential Informant” was the title of a short story by Pelecanos that was published in the 2006 book D.C. Noir, and takes place in the Park View neighborhood. I recall that Park Place features prominently in the story, as do other locations in the community. The story is also included as the lead story in Pelecanos’ new book The Martini Shot.

Whether destined for TV or the big screen, I’m looking forward to seeing the outcome of this project.

Below is the block where the filming was scheduled to take place.
