Document Description
All proposed activities are directly related to filming of the movie "Bird Box." Most involve a small boat (the plot centers on a boat trip on a river), the core cast of three individuals, stunt doubles, and camera and support crews of up to about 250 individuals. These may include one to a few individuals in the river in SCUBA gear to set up each shot prior to the filming of each sequence. Some sequences may also include props placed in or near the river, and special effects. These film sequences are described in more detail, with potential locations identified for each sequence. The Main Unit would film most sequences, with the second unit limited to filming boat on river scenes on the Middle Fork of the Smith.
