Which likely isn't too untrue for 90s Calgary.

Unfortunately that wasn't just a Calgary thing in the 90s. Wouldn't worry about the Calgary = Homophobic angle.

edit - 2nd page replies covered it.

What's that being filmed downtown the last few days, maybe what Gundo mentioned, looked like something post apoclyptic.

I haven't seen any of it, I though maybe it was a new movie.

Apparently it's the Last of Us.

Sorry, I could have been way more clear with that post. I completely understand the commonplace homophobia in society in the 90's and early 2000's as I'm 37. I didn't mean to imply that Calgary stood out or that it didn't happen everywhere, only that Calgary is the basis of this show and that it will focus on how difficult life was for them growing up gay here.

Went through Crossfield on Thursday night, headed out camping, and there was what looked like something filming at the arena (I think it was the arena?) - anyone know what it is?

Heard that the second part of Dune is possibly going to film in the Calgary area. Anyone else heard the same?

Got a voicemail from an extras casting agency. Not sure what theyíre looking for. Kind of busy with work to devote the kind of time commitment they usually need for extras.

The only thing I can think of is using the Badlands for a Sietch?

NE parking lot at UCalgary was full of production vehicles, trailers etc. Today when I drove home on Crowchild. The big lot beside the Mormon church. Any idea what is being filmed? If anything?

Every second block in this city is either under construction or closed for filming something. What are they filming near the Shepard, 24th, Ogden road traffic circle? That’s a wholly unremarkable area.

It is, was stopped by production on my ride home last night, had to wait for a break in filming to skirt around the edge of the set.
