Ads shot on bridges

Two TV commercial shoots are planned on Florida Keys bridges Wednesday and Thursday.

Motorists may be delayed.

New York-based Little Bear Inc. will film four- to eight-minute spots intermittently from late morning to early evening both days on Channel 5 and Long Key bridges.

RSA films, based in Los Angeles, will film a car for up to four five-minute intervals an hour between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Thursday on the Seven-Mile Bridge.

Weather or other factors could delay the work, according to Rita Troxel of the Florida Keys & Key West Film Commission.
