Film Notes: ‘Road’ doesn’t travel usual local pathsFriday, April 25, 2008Don’t look for the Pittsburgh money shots in “The Road.” You know, the sort that pop up on “Monday Night Football” or as the backdrop for political reporters positioned atop Mount Washington.
“We don’t really get to see bright shiny beautiful Pittsburgh,” Buddy Enright, unit production manager for “The Road,” said this week before packing up and heading to Lake Erie. “It’s all rural,” with a couple of exceptions.
“The Road,” an adaptation of the Cormac McCarthy novel about a father and son searching for food, shelter and safety in an unsafe world, required gray skies, wintry bare trees and a topography that helps to tell the story. No chirping birds or blue skies required or wanted.
“It’s a cold, gray world, and we really expected that, and we got it here and frankly, we’re getting out of town in the nick of time with the trees budding and blooming,” he said.
“The story starts in the mountains and ends up at the sea and we realized we could tell the story kind of geographically through the Pennsylvania landscape here in Western Pennsylvania using the mountains, using the farmland, using river bottoms,” he said.
