One Life To Live films in Seaside Heights…

One Life To Live films in Seaside Heights: Cast and crew from the set of the ABC Daytime Drama One Life to Live were in Seaside Heights last week filming location shots as planned. The OLTL filming coincided with three beautiful days in a row, albeit it was chilly at night. Places used for the shooting were: Casino Pier, Playday Amusements, Lucky’s Arcade, The Kearney Avenue Lifeguard Building, The Kearney Avenue Bay Dock, The Four Winds Motel, and Adrenaline. The crew began to arrive on Tuesday March 15th, and did cabling of all locations, which was done by All Mobile Video of New York, using giant tractor trailers full of high-tech equipment. Filming began on Wednesday April 16th, and included a scene at the Kearney Bay Dock involving three OLTL regular characters arriving by boat. Evening included shots involving five very high profile characters in an amusement park scene. The scenes filmed Thursday April 17th and Friday April 18th were both at Kearney Avenue, where the LGHQ building and Lucky’s Arcade had been chosen due to their close proximity to each other and need to only cable one area instead of two. Some crew stayed at the White Pearl Hotel, although many stayed at Toms River’s Holiday Inn. The Aztec Motel was utilized as well, but mostly for hair and makeup during the Casino Pier shot, and for a cast and crew dinner inside the bar Wednesday night. A commissary tent for cast and crew was set-up at the municipal parking area at Fremont Avenue and Ocean Terrace, and held meals Thursday and Friday. Although we have been asked to keep the storyline and plot details we may have learned hush-hush, be assured that the film shot in Seaside Heights features some of the show’s most popular characters and involve a major current story line. Although we have great, exclusive photos and video of the very famous cast members, we do not wish to spoil the suspense of current cliffhangers, and therefore will keep them under wraps for now. After the scenes filmed in Seaside Heights have aired, which should be in mid-May, we are then free to release the footage, which is very interesting indeed. Keep watching!

    I haven’t been to Seaside in over 5 years, being a resident of Texas for three of those 5. I saw a few seconds on the television of Star and Cole on the boards and squealed, ‘THAT’S SEASIDE!’

    My co-worker, never setting foot in NJ, looked at me oddly.

    When I found out I was right, just from that tiny little snippet, I was beside myself with glee. It makes me miss home.

    It is nice to see my old stomping grounds on the t.v.
