FORT STEVENS - Cloudy conditions that dominate our coastal skyline much of the year provided the perfect doom-and-gloom backdrop for filming "The Road" last week.

"The sun is the enemy in our film, as far as cinematography goes in trying to create that post-apocalyptic world," publicist Emma Cooper said Thursday, as the crew finished four days working on the beach at Fort Stevens State Park and in a nearby warehouse. Fort Stevens is directly across the Columbia from Ilwaco and Chinook. Filming will wrap in Portland this week.
