A video location manager has blown into town today, bringing with him a film crew and some bustle to the Rice St. area. I spoke to location manager Jeff MacLean of Bark Productions who seemed flattered by The Swellesley Report attention and told me, “I can’t say what it’s about, but it isn’t really anything very exciting.”
Not very exciting. Hah. He obviously lives a life of travel and glamour, over at the Zakim Bridge one day and off to Suffolk University the next, or so a peek at his client list suggests. Not that I don’t love Wellesley and our brand of living life to its fullest. It’s grand in its way. Still, when outsiders come in and actual cameras start rolling, my interest is piqued. All he would cop to was that he was filming an interview of a doctor. M.D.? PhD? He wouldn’t say. He did reveal that he was looking forward to lunch at Cafe Mangal. He’ll probably be the one looking all big-time Hollywood, wearing shades, and taking calls. I highly recommend the kebabs, Mr. MacLean.
Thanks to neighborhood tipsters for the heads-up on this.
