Movie filming of "Spirited" in Worcester

Post by cuworc »

The movie Spirited is being filmed for Apple TV+ at Mechanics Hall in Worcester at least through this week. The production's base camp is on Temple Street. Frequencies in use are the same ones most recently used in Worcester for the filming of "Don't Look Up" in December, 2020.

461.0875 S D664 Ch 2 - Talkaround
461.1375 S D606 Ch 3 - Talkaround
461.2375 S D152 Ch 4 - Props
461.2875 S D464
461.3375 S D565 Electric/Lighting (probably Ch. 6)
466.0375 S D412
466.0875 S D364

466.1875 S D114 Ch 14
466.2375 S D226 Ch 15
466.2875 S D423 Ch 16 - Transportation

Channels 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 16 have been highly active, with infrequent transmissions heard on the rest.

There are media reports of filming in Braintree at South Shore Plaza as well, and that filming will continue through October.

Other media reports indicate that a chase scene for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will be filmed in Worcester in the coming weeks.

Final update: Here's the full score. They've wrapped up in Worcester and are en-route to Braintree.

461.0375 S D703 Ch 1 - Production
461.0875 S D664 Ch 2 - Talkaround
461.1375 S D606 Ch 3 - Talkaround
461.2375 S D152 Ch 4 - Props
461.2875 S D464 Ch 5
461.1175 S D445 Ch 6 - Camera Dept. (odd freq. - NOT a typo)
461.3375 S D565 Ch 7 - Electric/Lighting
462.8625 S D612 Ch 8 - Rigging/Grip
464.4875 S D411 Ch 9 - Health and Safety (COVID)
464.5375 S D271 Ch 10 - Talkaround (Electric/Health and Safety)
466.0375 S D412 Ch 11 - Special effects
466.0875 S D364 Ch 12
466.1375 S D205 Ch 13
466.1875 S D114 Ch 14
466.2375 S D226 Ch 15 - Transportation secondary
466.2875 S D423 Ch 16 - Transportation

Notes:
Usage of some channels (e.g.: 3, 10, 11, and unassigned channels) varied from day to day based on production needs.

Ch. 6 (461.1175 D445) seems out of place and is a non-standard frequency, but fully verified on a spectrum scope. Perhaps a radio programming error. It has been reported as 461.1125 D445 in past wiki loggings, which is as close as some scanners will step.

Ch. 8 (462.8625 D612) aligns with past wiki loggings back to 2011 but was listed in "Don't Look Up" as 464.8625 D612. I submitted that logging and it may have been in error, as 464.8625 was silent for "Spirited".
