Movie Making: Followup

When writing a week ago about movie-making disruptions, I assumed that Jefferson Middle School had to have been out last Friday. The confusion and complexity of the filming looked to be far than would have been possible while holding school. After a week of unreturned phones calls to Jefferson and Albuquerque Public Schools, a visit to Jefferson this afternoon brought an answer. I was wrong. A teacher said the whole thing went quite smoothly. Students were picked up in the normal area, which then was quickly filled for filming.
I'm impressed. Congratulations to both Jefferson and the movie company.
That said, there are bunches of costs of filming that are not covered by the economic analysis of filming in New Mexico.
