JJ Abrams' Neighborhood Kindness

An article from gossip blog Crazy Days and Nights, a story was revealed that involved JJ Abrams showing an extra effort for a Los Angeles neighborhood one of his movies was performing pick up shots for. It’s a nice change of pace in a time when most of the stories from Hollywood seem to be mostly about ego and making sure every little act is seen by cameras. While its truth may never be 100% known, it’s still makes for a good story.
Is this the biggest kindness in the history of the world? Nope. Not by a long shot, but it is pretty big to show you what happens when people take time to do the little things. This initialed A++ list producer/writer/director and creator was filming in a local Los Angeles neighborhood recently. It is not a street that usually sees a lot of filming and took place on a quiet street. It was just some pick up shots for a movie, but our producer/director was there to supervise. When the residents discovered who was shooting and for what movie, they of course came out to gawk. Not a problem for our producer who took pictures, signed autographs and even let all the kids come out and listen on headsets and explained each shot in advance. Many of the residents baked cookies or brought out food for the crew and the producer got all their names and addresses and sent a personalized, signed note mentioning each item of food to each person. Definitely a nice touch and left everyone with some great holiday spirit and lots of love for our producer.
