'Hunger Games' filming update: The Capitol to be filmed 'indoors'

Filming in Hildebran for ‘The Hunger Games‘ is now at an end. Also, included is a brand new information that the Capitol will be filmed indoors.

From Hickory Daily Record:

Henry River Road was open on Thursday and filming for “The Hunger Games” at Henry River Mill Village in Hildebran was over.

Props that were apparently used for the movie remained, including clothes that were still hanging on a clothesline and rusted bed springs, car parts and animal pens remained. A set of wooden stairs that leads to a second floor built on the outside of one of the homes remain. The stairs are a new addition to the house.

According to locals residents, during filming actors and others were transported to the village from an old trucking company in Hildebran that was used as a parking and staging area.

They also aren’t supposed to reveal the locations for costume fittings. Treadway did say that the dress she was fitted for was so threadbare that it ripped during the fitting. Marcus said he was told the clothing in his scenes would look like clothes from the 1930s.

Extras also received haircuts, and the way Treadway described them, some of the haircuts were purposefully made to appear as if they were done at home. Treadway also was told not to wash her hair for two days before filming and to lose the highlights in her hair.

The set for the capitol will be built indoors, Treadway said she was told.
