GTA V: 8 Disturbing Locations & Secrets You Totally Missed

GTA V: 8 Disturbing Locations & Secrets You Totally Missed | iMOVIEi - MOVIES ・LOCATIONS・BUSINESSES・PEOPLE | Scoop.it
For as much criticism as the Grand Theft Auto franchise gets, Rockstar’s series has always mostly been known for its tongue in cheek humour and ridiculous over the top cartoon violence. Although all the games in the series get into dark territory now and again, there are always plenty of laughs at the ready to make sure GTA doesn’t descend into pure, visceral misery. That said, underneath all the arrogant bravado, there can still be a disturbing edge to these games, and with Trevor’s infamous torture scene in GTA V making controversial headlines all over the globe when the game hit shelves in 2013. GTA V might be the darkest entry into the series yet, with that particularly shocking moment essentially grandstanding as Rockstar’s ‘Here, look at this!’ moment. However, if you dig deeper into the most recent entry into the franchise, it’s not hard to find plenty of sinister plots, characters and locations lurking just beneath the surface.

It was 37 years ago to the day – March, 28, 1979 – that the partial nuclear meltdown at Three Mile Island occurred. Reported as the worst nuclear accident in U.S. history, it was a day central Pennsylvanians would not soon forget. Those who lived through it probably remember the panic. Schools evacuated. Residents were encouraged to stay inside. Some fled the area. But eventually, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission reported no deaths or release of radiation, and the crisis was over. For years, it was assumed that there were no lasting effects. But when filmmaker Jill Murphy Long was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2012 and realized more than 50 people from her graduating class at Central York High School had either died from or been diagnosed with cancer or other neurological diseases, she started to believe it was all connected to TMI.

The Five Borough Backlot: TV Shooting Locations in New York City

The Five Borough Backlot: TV Shooting Locations in New York City | iMOVIEi - MOVIES ・LOCATIONS・BUSINESSES・PEOPLE | Scoop.it
If you think you're running into more TV camera crews these days, it's not just your imagination. The number of scripted television shows produced in New York City has more than quadrupled since 2002 according to a report out last fall, with 46 different shows in 2014. Expanded studio space, new tax credits and other factors have contributed to a surge in local television production, particularly in hour-long dramas. The 2013-2014 season marked the first time on record that more drama pilots were shot in New York than Los Angeles. A look at four years of data on shooting permit locations from the Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment shows TV shoots happening throughout the city. There are lots of locations listed in Midtown and Lower Manhattan, but there are also particular concentrations of permits in Greenpoint, Long Island City and Astoria, all of which are home to popular soundstages used by TV shows.
