Setting Up Shop for a Double Dip

Several blocks around Spring street and 7th are closed today and tomorrow as MJZ Productions shoots a Miller Lite commercial. It's a standoff between the Budweiser horses and a Miller Lite truck.

After wrapping the Miller spot tomorrow evening, MJZ will be sticking around for two more days as they shoot a commercial for Guitar Hero 3 at 639 S. Spring. The block will lose parking on both sides after being completely shut off two two days.

Letting a production company take adavantage of the same block for two back to back projects seems a little ridiculous in my book. There is such a thing as letting a location rest between shoots, though it does seem the City or Film LA have any real concept of it.
