   POINT RICHMOND - The Point Richmond Neighborhood Council will hear reports - and likely discuss - two upcoming film shoots in The Point.
     The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Point Richmond Community Center and is open to the public. The full agenda is printed below.
     The film discussions are listed on the agenda to begin at about 7:45 p.m.
     The first filming is Monday, April 29 - a commercial shoot between 7 a.m. at 8 p.m. for Honda.
     The morning filming will be around the business triangle. A descriptive flyer about exactly where the shooting will be going on and other details about parking is below.
     The second filming is Tuesday, April 30 by Medallia Commercial. The agenda lists Andrea Bloom of Skycar Creative as the contact person. Further details about how much that filming might impact The Point are expected to be discussed at the meeting.
     Parking and traffic flow are expected to be impacted by the Monday event with "no parking" signs posted close to the filming. Richmond Police will be on scene to assist, according to Felix Gehm of Waypoint Films, location manager for the filming.
