I thought I would have to share my story of my first visit with television filming. I was visiting in the Scalinata in Roma while out from my hotel and saw crews of filmmakers. They were all around piazza and on top near the Trinità dei Monti looking down with camera onto the piazza. Thinking I would see movie stars I took my little phone and searched around! But I didn't see any movie stars just filmmakers. They were filming for a long time and were there even still when I returned hour, hour more later. I asked gentlemen pictured below who they were filming, they said they were independent film studio from Roma under commission from filming for Warner Bros. I asked if there would be any movie stars but they said that there would not be, they said they were under commission to film just location shooting, long scenes of nothing in the frame they thought for the colour separation overlay, and also what they called establishing shots. Asking what it was for the men pictured below did not say, but a woman later did tell me it was for the American TV program Gossip Girls.
I have returned home now to but it was a special end to my vacation, seeing a filming of a TV program in Roma for the first time.
