On Mormon church’s Jerusalem set, the end (of filming) is nigh

(Al Hartmann | The Salt Lake Tribune) A crane and technical support team raise a giant reflector into place on the "Old Jerusalem" movie set near Elberta, Utah Wednesday May 22. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is in the last few days of filming for the New Testament video library project (Bible Videos).

It’s the last days in “Jerusalem” — the last days of filming, that is, for a series of New Testament videos on the Mormon church’s Jerusalem movie set near Goshen, about 60 miles south of Salt Lake City. The Utah-based faith will wrap up shooting in the next few days. The massive facility — the size of two side-by-side football fields — was completed in 2011. The New Testament project is just one of many of church productions that have been shot on the movie set.
