Filming for GRIMM started early this morning in downtown Portland at Lovejoy Fountain Park. It is located near 1st and Harrison, right next to Portland State University. They used some adjacent buildings for the extras holding space and meals. The park is located in the center of several apartment buildings and PSU buildings, so it is quite hidden from public view. It is made up of a concrete area with steps and a fountain at one end. The park is only accessible by several paved walking paths. No roads lead into the park, so the crew had to bring in their smaller trucks with equipment for the filming. They had these trucks parks at several of the pathway locations surrounding the park. There were a few of the bigger trucks parked along 1st ave. The actors Sasha Roiz, Russell Hornsby and Reggie Lee were part of the filming which was a huge political rally on a large stage. After the speeches the politician walks to the right side of the stage and is then shot. Sasha runs and catches him and sets him on the stage. Russell and Reggie are there with their car and come through the crowds and follow the gun man off to the right.
It was raining off and on which made for a damp day for the crew and extras involved with the filming. They are to be filming another two days at this location.
