Filming for Steve Jobs biopic underway at Apple co-founder’s childhood home

“The garage at Steve Jobs’ childhood home here [in Los Altos, California] looks like a trip back in time,” Shara Tibken reports for CNET.

“Cinderblock and wood shelves are pieced together along the walls. Roller skates, a Thermos, an old vacuum cleaner and 8-track player and stereo lay haphazardly about. An advertisement for a Braun electric coffee maker hangs on the wall, as does a poster featuring Bob Dylan holding a ‘Get Born’ sign from a film clip featuring the song ‘Subterranean Homesick Blues.’ And the house itself has been painted a beige color with darker tan trim, contrasting with the formerly lighter exterior,” Tibken reports. “It could be anybody’s long-forgotten storage space. Or it could be the set of the new Jobs biopic… ‘Steve Jobs.'”

“The film, with a screenplay by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Danny Boyle, has begun shooting in California. Crew members put the finishing touches on the garage set Friday morning in anticipation of shooting later in the day,” Tibken reports. “The venue, in sleepy Los Altos in the heart of Silicon Valley, also happens to be the actual garage at Jobs’ childhood home and the location where he and partner Steve Wozniak started Apple in 1976.”

  1. That bush in flower to Steve Jobs left is simply stunning!
    I hereby judge that that bush should be protected and cuttings of it propagated and sold to Applelites.
    It should also be given the added name of Sjobs after its own name in memoriam.

  2. A quick Google Image search for “Steve Jobs 2006” shows that it’s more likely a ’90s model in that pic.

    Wasn’t the movie supposed to be set backstage at three iconic Apple product launches? Maybe there are introductory scenes at the house…
