How do you help a crew of hundreds of people work in Washington, DC, one of the most densely populated and traffic heavy cities in the country? One thing is for sure, you’re going to need lots of cones.
DC is notoriously in short supply of large open lots, so productions often have to secure permits to take over several blocks of street parking at a time to accommodate the large work trucks. While the permits give movie crews permission to use all the street parking, only a massive fleet of cones will truly deter others from parking there.
“During the production of WW84 we were tasked with shutting down Wisconsin avenue in Washington DC, a major artery for traffic in the popular area of Georgetown. PlusOne was rapid in response and able to accommodate our needs so that we could safely turn modern day DC into the set out crew was looking for.”
Wonder Woman 1984 was set in the 1980s, so outdoor shots required even more street parking as they needed to populate the streets with period accurate vehicles. This included a 5 block stretch of Wisconsin Ave in Georgetown, requiring over 200 cones to keep the streets clear prior to placing the picture cars.
