Cloudstreet, from the novel by Tim Winton, was filmed in various locations around Perth in 2010. It was made by Showtime Channel and released as a DVD also. I was a background actor in two of the scenes. It was fun being involved in a film shoot.
When 'The Bill' was still being produced, (a British police drama), the bridge opposite my house was a popular filming area. I would often see the camera crew working there. A long time ago, just after I had been born, the film crew asked my parents if they could put leads through our house for filming purposes. They would have said yes if I hadn't just been born.
Les Stroud, known for his reality show Survivorman, was just in my country town filming a documentary about Bigfoot. Apparently, he lives in the mountains near my home ;) I live in British Columbia, Canada, and the provinces biggest city, Vancouver, is a TV filming hub. The X-files was filmed there, as well as all the Stargate shows, Battlestar Galactica, Once Upon a Time and many many others.
I walked past Deni Hines while she was mid-filming The Celebrity Apprentice and I was on my way to the post office (in Crows Nest, NSW). She told me my top (a Great Gatsby tee shirt) was nice, but she didn't look too happy!
