If you ever feel like drinking from a firehose and getting the full feel of just how much commercial and TV filming goes on Downtown (with the occasional feature sprinkled in), you can go to Film LA's website and sign up for their e-Notification program.

Glancing through the notifications yesterday I had to laugh at a near-miss for subject-matter synergy. Tomorrow Bright Pictures will be filming a VW commercial on Grand, between 1st and 5th. At the very same time Admit One Productions will be filming a Chrysler 300 commercial directly below on Lower Grand and the 4th street freeway.

Too bad they couldn't just share sets...
