On David Simon’s blog, he reflected on the wrap of shooting for season three of Treme with a tally sheet. Here are a few of the highlights:
Number of episodes filmed: 10
Number of shooting days: 113 for first unit, plus 10 days of second unit or splinter unit shooting.
Number of New Orleans restaurants featured: 27
Number of New Orleans bars featured: 40
Number of New Orleans musicians filmed: 371
Number of songs performed live: 106
There are more, including the number of No Parking signs posted (the one negative by-product for those of us who work on Frenchmen Street on shooting days, with parking already pinched by the condo-izing of the building that once housed The Iron Rail) and his last thoughts on shooting.
