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