Tonight was a bad night for filming. It was cold and rainy. The shooting took place on Floyd Street. After I walked around for awhile, I was lucky enough to secure a great vantage point with a group of teens on one of the large front porches. Not long after I staked out my spot, a nice Production assistant came over and was giving us the 'rules' for watching the shoot. The first words out of his mouth was "you will need to go inside and watch through the window." Poor guy had no idea we didn't belong to that house. We politely explained that we could not go in. He told us that if we stood on the back corner, very still it should be OK.
He also described the scene that was going to take place. This was, technically, the first scene in the movie. It is after Laurie Strode shot Micheal. It is (supposed to be) around 5am. She is bloody and walking down the street with Loomis's gun. The police car pulls up behind her as she walks. CUT.
I tried framing and taking a few photos but soon realized it was a hopeless case. I was too far away for the flash to work and if I set a low ISO, the rain just blurred the shot. I decided that it wasn't worth waiting in the rain and getting sick. I decided to call it a night.
On my way out, I noticed they had "trashed" the Halloween Festival set on the Square. They had TP'd several of the trees and it was a general mess. I assume this is the aftermath. I asked when they were filming but Security was not sure. Sometime tonight or tomorrow. I think I'll head down tomorrow to see what I can see - rain or not.
But as promised, here are some dark, not so good or clear, video clips of Tyler Mane's Micheal Myers. Just look for the guy that is all hair and hoodie and about a foot and a half taller than every one else.
Mane and Zombie
The rest are miscellaneous walking scenes...
