H2: Phantom Jam

Today was the first time I left my house since Friday. I went to the Phantom Jam shoot. I arrived around 1'ish. I parked on the Crew side of the block and walked around to where the other spectators had gathered. I saw some familiar faces from the Rabbit in Red shoot and met some new friends (Will, I cannot remember your stepbrother's name, I'm sorry. Email me and remind me :)

I arrived in time to watch the extra's be shuttled from the tent and into the "party" (also known as the Newborn Fertilizer Plant building). At that point, there wasn't much going on. I took some random exterior shots. We noticed several people dressed as Rocky Horror characters walk down to the set. They hung outside awhile. Then Zombie came out and talked to them. Then the Crew brought some chairs out for them. We figured they were "somebody" but I didn't learn til later that it was Scout and friends :) I was able to snap a few distant shots before I heard to immortal words "No pictures." If I'm lucky, I'll have some photos from some other blog readers to post.

After about an hour, I wasn't feeling very well and decided it was time to go. I walked back to my vehicle and snapped a quick photo of, what I think, was the entrance to the Halloween party. I also saw several people working on a van tricked out with shag carpet and black-light posters. My guess, it will play a part in the movie. Don't know for sure but that is my bet.

Here are some of my photos from today. Enjoy!

Nice pics! Still debating on whether to buy these flight tickets for tomorrow morning...what is the address for the plant do you know so I can mapquest it? I only have about an hour and 20-25 minute window after getting rental car to make it to the set from the airport.

Annabella said...

I did. Un-freakin'-believeable. The nerve of some people. Thanks for the heads up!

Michael said...

I feel so out of the loop (don't have your myspace address).

Also, don't think I'll be able to make this work for tomorrow's shoot...dont' think I can make it there in time after landing at 11:10, getting the car and going to hotel, change and be in newborn by 1 :(

If anyone gets to meet Tyler again or Brea Grant I'll gladly pay for one of their autos :)

1 would be too late michael. I left the set/trailer area because everyone was extremely busy. It was not the type of setting to wait to greet the cast. Let's hope they stay close for the last 10 days left. If they go out to Atlanta. I might not be able to follow them. I saw you Annabella. said hey- H jacket dude. I was smart to leave, correct?

Brandon said...

We ran into Scout and Tyler. I wont be showing up 2 morrow. Maybe next location.

Tyler was not supposed to be there today. If I go tomorrow it will be late, like 5 pm or something like that. What time did they wrap tonight?

Annabella said...

Extra's didn't wrap until 2am.

Jonathan said...

Everybody watch out Brandon got his mask,ROB RUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Annabella said...

OK, first, Brandon darling, when are you heading out on your mission? I MIGHT go. It all depends on how I feel.

The extras were thinking Scout and the girls and Tyler (at least) will be at the shoot today. Expect some extra cranky people. The hubby got in at 3a, to bed at 5a and was back on his way out at 9a - Ouch!

brandon said...

The van was unbelieveable. It HAS to be in the movie somewhere.
