‘Shetland’ filming to disrupt Commercial Street
Filming for the next episodes of the television drama Shetland will take place on Thursday in Lerwick, and part of Commercial Street will be closed to traffic that day.
The filming will be in the Stouts Court area, using the front door of the flats, and will take most of the day on Thursday.
The south end of Commercial Street will be closed to traffic for most of the day and there will be “slight disruption” to pedestrians when the cameras are rolling. This will only be a few minutes, according to Davie Gardner of Atlantic Edge Music Services.
A short scene will also be shot on Monday 13th April, but will not require a road closure.
Mr Gardner also said there had been a request from the director to paint the doors and windows of the flats in the area of filming red for the duration of the shoot. They would be re-instated to their original colour afterwards.
No objections have been received from residents.
