This past weekend, for about the second time in a year, the intersection of Main and James here in Hamilton was closed for use in a film production. Both times it was for a period piece, since it’s an intersection that has old, architecturally interesting buildings on all four corners, something I suspect is a bit of a rarity in a lot of places now.
It was for a series pilot being made by NBC/Universal for airing on the SyFy network, called Rewind. The executive producer is Jack Bender who has worked on Lost, Alcatraz, and The Sopranos. Set in both present-day and 1929, Rewind involves a group of military scientists who hope to un-do a nuclear explosion in present-day New York by manipulating a particle-accelerator to achieve time-travel.
