Steve Jobs Biopic Filming in Civic Center



Hollywood filmmaking on location seems to be all about the trailers...



...which temporarily house everything from movie stars to "Computer Archaeology."



The trailers and semis appeared all over the Civic Center neighborhood in late February and are scheduled to stick around until the end of March...



...as Universal Studios makes yet another Steve Jobs biopic, starring Michael Fassbender with a script by Aaron Sorkin.



Much of the equipment is parked around the Opera House and Davies Symphony Hall, where they are filming a number of scenes while sandwiching themselves into the performance schedules of the busy SF Ballet and SF Symphony.



This means that most of the filming takes place late at night (the photo above was taken at 11:00 PM Friday), which feels more suitable for a vampire movie. Maybe Aaron Sorkin can complete his movie trilogy about Bay Area Billionaire Digerati that started with Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network by writing a film about the Dark Lord himself, Larry Ellison. That's a vampire movie I'd like to see.

Isn't this well, kind of, annoying?

Dear Hattie: In between the multiple performance venues, construction sites, and crazy street people acting out all over the neighborhood, the film shoot is actually more amusing than annoying.

Kind of know what you mean. Sometimes it works best to just surrender to the chaos.
