Sony commercial filming locally next week

Nevada City’s downtown and the Del Oro Theatre and Kathy’s Wedding Showcase in Grass Valley will be featured in a Sony products commercial scheduled for filming next week.

“The idea is a bunch of Sony products come down from the mountain top into somebody’s home,” said Wilson Wu, a location manager for the commercial.

Sony makes videocassette recorders, DVD and Blu-ray disc players and flatscreen TVs.

The main shot is in Nevada City but the commercial will be filmed as if it took place in one town, Wu said.

The commercial will be shot in Nevada City Monday, Grass Valley Tuesday and three Nevada City area homes the rest of the week, Wu said.

Wu didn’t know when the commercial would run.

The finished commercial would run for 90 seconds in Europe and 60 seconds in the United States.
