Shikkakku post some pictures online a few days ago, clearly he has waked up to the neigh of horses and steam whistles, he was wondering if he had gone back in time? And then he remembered that they were just shooting a new Del Toro movie in the city square she lived beside. How awesome is that? If I were him, I would probably want to audition to be one, you know, to be in a Del Toro movie! How cool would that be! And guys, Kingston make it! They make the front page without a guy hanging off a crane! LOL.
My flux capacitor must’ve detonated.
The view outside my apartment this morning.
Odd fellows, from a different time.
They dressed up the extras really well. I wanted to audition to be one, but I doubt they have too many fat asian men in the 1900’s…
And look, quaint horse-drawn conveyances.
They just kept going back and forth…
And some of these more modern contraptions
I was curious what they ran on. Coal? Batteries? Colonialism?
And I spy a beauty.
This is the beautiful Mia Wasikowska , in her role as Edith Cushing.
Prepping for the take.
Walking through the mud.
Hope the dress didn’t get too dirty.
Hark, a close call!
Let’s not run over the lead with a horse, please.
Let’s Play “Where’s the Lead Actress?”
I almost missed the most important guy on the set.
Snapping random shots of the crew, I noticed this guy with a hidden red scarf. It took me the entire day to realize this is Guillermo Del Toro himself. Wish I could’ve met the man!
They really made Market Square into….well, a Market.
More Jalopies and Carriages
A closeup of a driver and his passenger.
Wonder what’s the mileage on that thing….
This was kind of a big deal in our town….also because the shoot closed some major streets downtown and caused traffic kerfuffles everywhere.
I came home after work (9 hours later)
….and they had finished shooting and packed up. 🙁
I missed most of the action.
Oh well, maybe in the future (past?) another time machine will implode in my vicinity…
