Green screen in Aldershot

Another shot of the green screen in Aldershot for this WWZ (we think) film, aka HCZ.

That was as it was going up, and now it’s all coming down again.

Local news been digging into the comments round here, on twitter and so on 🙂 http://www.gethampshire.co.uk/news/s/2098986_brad_pitt_goes_from_hollywood_to_heron_wood

Google film locations

Looking up the location of the Aldershot film location, Google has this capture from what must have been a previous set up.

And then as a frequent haunt of mine, checking out Google’s view on Swinley and seems it caught not only a plane going over but also the green screen stuff that was being built there during the Harry Potter filming back in 2009.

Yet more filming in Aldershot

Again, not looking for these, it’s just I drive past these places and the route home takes me past a now common spot for filming in Aldershot. This time lots of scaffolding put up, some sort of wooden structure being built and they’ve now put screening up to hide it from the road.

Place was used in the past for a Bond film apparently and other things I’m not sure about.

This time the signs up are for HCZ Unit. HCZ = Film company? Or code name for the film (or TV show)?

Haven’t got a photo myself, but @herodian has a couple



Edit – suggestion is Prometheus. Ridley’s Alien flick.

Further edit – Seems now it’s World War Z (makes sense, HCZ = working title Holocaust Zombie ?)

More filming

Back in June I spotted some filming going on towards the edge of Aldershot on some of the Army land, with green screens and ‘G LOC’ signs about (wonder which film unit is ‘G’?).

Anyway, they cleared off a while back but driving home today past the place a new unit has set up. I missed what the signs say, but the place has a big sheet of blue screen this time and I thought I saw a bunch of people in Army dress this morning where they were setting up lighting. Then again, it’s Army land anyway.

Apparently they did some filming for one of the recent Bond films there a few years back. Seems to have become a popular filming spot. It’s just a big scrap of unused parade ground basically.

If there’s anything interesting going on I’ll try and get a photo.

And then going on towards home I go past Pirbright and dotted around the area are some ‘P&M LOC’ signs for more filming. Looks like there’s a film crew bus by the cricket green in Pirbright itself. There’s some also by a big house/estate nearby where I know they’ve done filming before.

Wonder who P&M are though?
