Gymkhana Five: Ultimate Urban Playground - San Fransisco
 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuDN2bCIyus

Shot on the actual streets of San Francisco, California, GYM5 features a focus on fast, raw and precise driving action. Filmed over four days, director Ben Conrad and his team are back to work on their second Gymkhana production and delivered the entire city of San Francisco as Ken Block's personal gymkhana playground. DC Shoes also provided fellow DC athlete and longtime Ken Block friend, Travis Pastrana, to make a cameo appearance on his dirtbike, and S.F. resident Jake Phelps of Thrasher Magazine fame also makes a cameo as Block hoons S.F. in his most incredible Gymkhana yet.

I've always wondered how filming is done in major cities where you see nobody else around. I can only imagine each segment is filmed separately and probably very early on Sunday mornings or something.

I was thinking about that too. Shoot early in the morning? No, the noise would wake up the whole city. Hold everyone back at gunpoint? Or maybe free beer everywhere on the other side of the city? Or free porn channels? It was interesting, no one on the streets, no one watching from the buildings/ windows either. Gotta ask Ken next time he races.

Well, I live in downtown Los Angeles, where the entire city is basically a film set on a daily basis. The usual practice is that the film/production studios obtain the necessary permits from the city which grant them permission to close off certain streets, buildings, venues, etc... in order to give them the necessary access to create the desired visual effect. There was lots of that going on when The Dark Night and Inception were both being filmed, respectively.
