Lights! Camera! Action!

Well, there wasn’t much action but lots of lights and cameras Thursday morning as a television production crew prepared to shoot a national television advertising spot at McDonald’s on the corner of North McDowell Boulevard and East Washington Street.

Passers by or shoppers at nearby stores couldn’t miss the lights and reflective screens necessary to make a dreary, foggy Thursday seem like a bright, happy, sunshine-filled day at McDonald’s once shooting began. Crew members set up for shooting as the young actors cast in the commercial were arriving on the site.

According to Marie McCusker, executive director of the Petaluma Downtown Association, the film crew plans to wrap up today.

“Petaluma is the hometown they want to portray,” said McCusker. “The commercial will show our location and a Petaluma sign, so you will know it was filmed here.”
