"The Majestic" in Point Cabrillo - May 4
06 May 2001    

And exactly what happened last Friday at "The Majestic" production? Well, here's a detailed answer to that burning question, courtesy of Deep Trachea:

«On Friday, filming took place at the Pt. Cabrillo Lighthouse on the coast between the towns of Mendocino and Ft. Bragg, CA.

Scenes between Jim Carrey and Laurie Holden were shot, as well as a well-choreographed dusk shot with 150 extras walking toward the lighthouse.

Security went on alert halfway through the evening when a woman who had been dismissed from the local Ft. Bragg extras pool (for showing up too late to be run through hair, make-up, and wardrobe) was reported to have shown up on-set with a knife. Scenes to be shot later that night which involved extras were adjusted so that they could be filmed with principal actors only and all of the extras were wrapped for the night.

The other security snafu of the day occurred when the extras personal belongings in their changing tents at the wardrobe/make-up/hair complex on Main Street in Ft. Bragg were left unguarded by security personnel and several items of clothing were stolen. Police arrested one man whom they believed had been involved and a few items were recovered.

Many crew members were disappointed at the problems in Ft. Bragg considering how smoothly things went in Ferndale.

A "core" group of Ferndale extras (approximately 30 of them) had been kept behind for the scenes shot at the Lighthouse. They were wrapped for the last time Friday night. All the remaining filming in Ft. Bragg (two days' worth) will be completed using local extras.»
