Aaaand That’s a Wrap!

Last Wednesday, I spent the day at the L.A. Convention Center soaking up photography related facts at a Kelby Seminar, sponsored by Adobe Photoshop.

In the evening, once the conference was over, I discovered a movie was in the process of being filmed right at the convention center.  Apparently, the director had waited until the end of the day to begin filming.  Technically, the center was closed.

I wanted to kill some time before fighting rush hour traffic so I decided to hang out and watch for awhile.  Mind you, I wasn't supposed to be there.  I was slinking around, trying to inconspicuously take a couple iPhone photos.  

When I first got out of the conference, I walked right into this:

A director-type guy asked if I could kindly go that way, so I would avoid the area where they were filming.  One of the actors decided he'd rather chat with me than have me disappear.  (I think he was bored waiting for the filming to begin.)  He asked me what type of conference I'd been attending.  He must have been a photo enthusiast because he became quite animated and wanted to know lots of details about my equipment.

Ha ha!  He wanted details about my equipment!

I have no idea who he was, but he was a charming, very hawt handsome, African American actor man.  I kind of wanted details about HIS equipment.

Where have all the hot men gone?

L.A., apparently ….!

I couldn't hang around because I was being glared at by the director-type guy, so I didn't have an opportunity to ask any questions of my own.  

Instead, I went downstairs to the lobby and hung out in a corner with a lot of the extras.  A short time later, the lobby filled with  a lot more actors and filming began.

Sorry for the poor quality of these photos.  It was dark-ish, because it was evening and raining outside.  I couldn't pull out my "real" camera or I would be thrown out in seconds flat.

From the above photo, it's easy to deduce they were filming an airport scene.  Luggage, women in old fashioned "stewardess" outfits, etc.

And then there's this …

Nurses and a doctor.

Did the plane crash?

Why are they dressed in such an old fashioned manner?  But at the same time, the "extra" with the red luggage is in jeans and flats.  (The man behind her with the yellow tag on his shirt is one of the filming crew.)


Any ideas?

I'm left to wonder what the movie is about.

If any of you see a movie in the months to come and realize you're watching THIS movie, I hope you'll let me know.

I'm curious.

    I’ve seen a few movie scenes being shot in NYC… always fun to try to figure it out..and alwasy surreal to see the actors in “action”.

    Interesting! They’re going to be filming “The Avengers” in Cleveland, and I fully intend to go up there as often as I can to stalk, er, watch Samuel L. Jackson do that voodoo that he do so well.

    I walked by a comedian filming a commericial once in Melbourne, but that’s as close as I’ve come to hanging out with famous people in action.
    (I once had breakfast two tables away – i mean with – McSteamy.)

    This reminds me of the time when I was leaning down in my car looking for a cassette tape as Dan Quayle’s motorcade was being vetted by the Secret Service. Apparently they didn’t see me and so I was in the middle of the whole thing.
    Curious about that movie!
