Keith Street ready for Disney close-up

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

A north-of-Bar­ton neigh­bour­hood has been trans­formed into a candy-coloured film set that looks like it leapt off the pages of a Dr. Seuss book.

The shoot — which is for a made-for-TV movie called “Won­der­ful World” that will air on the Disney Chan­nel — is tak­ing place on Keith Street be­tween Cheever Street and Dou­glas Av­enue.

Sev­eral houses have been dec­o­rated with whim­si­cal, pas­tel-painted props, in­clud­ing a bird­cage, car tires, bi­cy­cles, chairs and French horns.

Deb­bie Spence, who heads up the city’s film, mu­sic, and cul­ture of­fice, says the movie is a mu­si­cal with mostly teenage ac­tors.

Shoot­ing has been un­der­way for sev­eral days and will likely wrap up next week, Spence says.

Bi­cy­cles and their parts, brass mu­si­cal in­stru­ments, and shovel blades in the form of a wind­mill con­trib­ute to the fan­tas­ti­cal trans­for­ma­tion.
