“Dear PoPville,

Any idea what they’re filming on 14th and W? There’s a ton of action inside and around the yellow row house, a film crew, tons of equipment and a tour bus.”

Another reader heard it was a “romantic comedy”. Anyone else hear more details?

    Several cars may have been towed illegally by this company, and are currently missing. Please be sure not to park around this area.

      My car was towed and lost from this area! I couldn’t find it for five days. An enormous hassle. If anyone is missing a vehicle, mine was at ABC Towing in NE. The police station on V st ended up having the information to locate it.

      They’re also getting away with parking their vehicles in no parking areas (the alley, the pepco building, etc) or way over the lines without any apparent tickets. And they’ve blocked the sidewalk with their equipment but didn’t create an alterntae route so pedestrians walk in the bike lane and bikes take over the traffic lane and everyone loses during rush hour. Pretty galling to then have your cars towed, sorry.

    Pretty sure it’s a movie called Couples Night. I live across the street and did some digging! https://www.instagram.com/p/BL563-WjFVS/?taken-by=1555filmworks

    We live a couple houses down. They posted something on our front door that said they would be filming from this week until November 5. It was signed “Octet Productions.”

    When I drove past the other day I saw a director’s chair with the name Kirk Frasier on the back – he seems to be a documentary filmmaker. Maybe it’s his current project on IMDB, Naked Hustle? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3228862/?ref_=nm_flmg_prd_2

    It does say it’s based in DC, soo.

      If this is it I found a (NSFW) trailer — it actually sounds pretty interesting. About hip hop music / corporations involvement and the objectification of black women’s bodies. They have a scene at a local university in a sociology class so it would make sense. Here’s the trailer. AGAIN, TRAILER IS NSFW: https://vimeo.com/120343992

    My friend asked them and apparently it’s a movie starring Tony Rock: https://twitter.com/TONYROCK?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor. I can’t find any more information on it though!

      One of Tony’s IG video’s does support this. He’s at Ben’s and says he’s filming “around the corner”.

  • ED

    I live a few house down and the first day the signs on the cars said “Official Parking Permit – Couples Night” (Mind you there was nothing “official” whatsoever about the passes) I also asked a crew member and they said Couples Night as well.

  • Ross

    There is a new film crew on 14th Street and V St. Do you think this is related?
