A PRODUCTION DESIGNER ON LOCATION

Colin Irwin, art director on the fllmJFK, describes some work done to make a location in Dallas, Texas, match documentary film footage used in the movie:

We did a lot of adding to locations, but not much building. We rented the oval office set from Paramount. In Daly Plaza we added to and changed it to match the 8mm film footage used in the movie. We had to trim the trees back, move signs and lampposts, and bring in 10 or 12 truckloads of dirt to cover the concrete parking lot. We also put in styrofoam railroad tracks as the oiiginal metal ones were no longer there.
