Location Manager Murray Miller took some time to chat with Salem Patch Thursday afternoon about the Salem filming experience as the cast and crew worked on shots on Essex Street.
"When I grow up, I want to move to Salem," said Miller, who first came to the Witch City over Labor Day weekend to scout locations. "It's beautiful. The people are wonderful and could not have been more cooperative."
In particular, Miller mentioned Special Events Coordinator Ellen Talkowsky and the Capt. Brian Gilligan, who he described as "stellar and hard-working people." He also acknowledged the "the support of the City elect" in facilitating the filming process.
Miller said the cast and crew also received a warm welcome from a number of businesses, including Engine House Pizza, where filming occurred Wednesday night.
"They're wonderful people, a great family," Miller said of the Dragons.
One other business that accommodated the cast and crew was , which offered dry space during a rainy shoot at the Witch Trials Memorial Tuesday afternoon.
"I just can't say enough about the city of Salem," Miller said.
As for his personal experience working on the shoot, Miller said he had not met Rob Zombie before production of "The Lords of Salem" began.
"I knew nothing about him," Miller said. "He's very smart… It turns out he's a really interesting guy, a really interesting artist, and I'm not in his target demographic."
"The Lords of Salem" is scheduled to hit theaters in 2012.
