Movie Production Freqs

I'd search in the 466.0-469.9875 range. Might also try 461.0-464.9875 - this will be loaded with biz-band repeaters, but you might catch some simplex production-related comms there as well. Most (if not all) of the freqs I've heard used in connection with movie production in Chicago over the past few years (Batman, Wanted, etc.) have been in these ranges. Major productions often use seperate freqs for different activities related to the shoot (director, photography, lighting, sound, effects, production assistants/crowd control, security/police, transportation, etc.). If you're really "gung ho", you can scan the active freqs you've found with one radio while continuing to search with another - that way, you won't miss the action while looking for new freqs.

Don't forget to post the freqs you find!

Try also the 457/467 Fast Food channels, those have been used heavily for Filming in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts over the past few years.

For anyone that is down around Decatur, they are filming a movie right now out at the ADM plant with Matt Damon in it.
It's a movie about the bad ADM price fixing scandal from the 90's.

Probably some good listening around there also.
