Show: Supernatural (The End, 5x04)
Location: Riverview Hospital, Vancouver, BC, Canada (Google Map)

Riverview Hospital is an abandoned mental health facility and a filming location for dozens of TV productions. Since the folks of Supernatural seem to use it for filming frequently, we got extremely curious and simply had to plan a visit. In the end, we ended up going back three times during our week’s stay in Vancouver.

The whole hospital area is a beautiful, amazing hillside park with old trees, roads and paths, but the run-down hospital buildings with their endless dark, empty windows are something else. More than once we got spooked by a reflection or an old curtain stirring in the wind in a broken window.

We’ll be posting more photos and stories from Riverview soon, but until then, we hope you enjoy these dear shots from one of our favourite Supernatural episodes ever!

Movie: Star Trek Into Darkness
Location: Creative Artists Agency building (on Google Map | Wikipedia)

Wow, this scene! These characters! These actors! This location. To snap these frames we drove over to the Creative Artists Agency building in Century City, Los Angeles. Although most of what you see during this scene in the movie is cgi, it still very much feels like you’re standing on a scifi movie set once you enter the square between these buildings.

Show: The Walking Dead
Location: Freedom Parkway, Atlanta, GA, US (on Google Map)

We’re in Atlanta and we’re falling apart because OH HELLO HAPPINESS. All these The Walking Dead locations and scenes we’re framing.. so good! We don’t want to leave this place at all!

So, here’s a little teaser of our upcoming frames. There’s some location snaps on our Instagram, too!

(We even went to see them film, but that’s a whole different story that we’ll be posting soon with stories and photos. The hilight of it must’ve been meeting Steven Yeun, though..)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY FORREST GUMP!

One of the greatest movies of all times is celebrating its 20th birthday right about now, so it’s quite amazing that we got to stand on some of the locations used in the movie exactly two decades later.

The first two photos were taken near Monument Valley, Utah on Route 163. There’s even a little sign saying “Forrest Gump ended his crosscountry run at this spot 1980.”

The other two photos were taken at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Breakfast with Trollando

For a while now Orlando Jones has been following Tiia on Twitter. It all started with this thing where Tiia photoshopped Orlando’s castmate Tom Mison’s face onto a Finnish folklore painting… don’t ask. (Or, on second thought, do ask!)

So we’ve been tweeting every now and then, and before our arrival to Wilmington Tiia sent him a polite inquiry asking if they would be filming that week and if we could come and say hi.

Although we did end up on the set of Sleepy Hollow and met all sorts of fantastic people, that’s not how we met OJ. He wasn’t around that day, but he suggested breakfast on Sunday morning once he gets back from LA. We were amazed. Satu suspected someone was joking with us. “Maybe they got onto his account,” she said. “Are we being punk’d?” we wondered.

So we’re trying to figure this one out aka WHAT JUST HAPPENED aka Did we just step into an episode of The Walking Dead?

We visited the City College of Los Angeles today for some Community sceneframes. A sunny day, silent campus, not many people around. 

All of a sudden we see this zombie guy walking around. We think “ok maybe there’s some filming going on or a costume party or whatever.” We keep walking, go around the building but see nothing. No filming crew, no party, nothing special. 

We bump into him again. I ask “can I take a photo?” and without saying a word, he starts dragging his feet, growling, reaching for me and I’m snapping photos on my knees although every instinct tells me to run. 

When I get back on my feet, he chuckles and walks away.

Awesome. And all sorts of terrifying.

Here’s a quote-y report from the set of The Walking Dead, where we spent all day today:

“You the folks from Finland? Were you here on Friday? Yeah, I heard about you.” -police officer #1 (who then gave Tiia a legit NYPD canvas badge just because.)
“Do you do Youtube videos or something? Your faces are familiar.” -fan from Alabama
“I have some questions about Finland.” -police officer #2
“Where are the Finnish fans? I have something for you. These are actual bullets used on the set.. just don’t tell anyone they’re from me.” -crew dude #1
“THANKS FOR WATCHING, FINLAND!!!” -crew dude #2
“Which ones of you are the ones from Finland? Ok, I had to come and tell you this so you’ll know. Sometimes they come out to greet the fans, sometimes they don’t. I just wanted you to know. [Lots of explanations and sort-of-apologies.] -crew dude #3
"You’ll be our lucky charms today, Finns.” -another fan
“You ARE awesome.” -crew dude #4 (after seeing our sign)
“FINLAND?!??! WOW.” -several crew members

And after 9 hours of waiting in the scorching heat (again), sitting on hot asphalt with just breakfast in our tummies and no toilets to use whatsoever:

*drives by and waves* -Andrew Lincoln

So, we’re guessing Finland is pretty exotic to the Georgia folks. Amazing! But no pictures with Andrew or Norman yet. Our last chance of meeting them will be tomorrow. We already met Steven Yeun on Friday (wow!!!), which is a whole different story and more rainy one than this one..

Now, all fingers and toes crossed for a chance to say hello & a humble thanks to Normsky & Andy.. we’ve deserved it. We’ve been patient and respectful :)

Guess what? We got stuck in the sand at Lake Silencio with our car. Like, proper stuck. Deeply, annoyingly stuck. 

We bet that didn’t happen to the Doctor Who crew when they went out there to film scenes for The Impossible Astronaut. Or maybe it did. Maybe the same tow truck guy came to rescue them from the sand, who knows.

Sand trap or not, it was a beautiful place to visit and we’ll tell you all about it later. We definitely recommend a drive up there if you ever get in the area! Just be careful with the sand..

Show: Doctor Who, “The Impossible Astronaut”
Location: Lake Powell (on Google Maps)

Lake Powell is an incredibly beautiful reservoir on the Colorado River straddling the border between Utah and Arizona. Since we found out the whole (painful) Doctor Who scene with the astronaut was filmed there, we decided to pay it a quick visit to get some sceneframing photos during our roadtrip across the country. The only thing is, instead of a quick visit we ended up having to do two longer ones…

On the first day, we decided to drive as close to the right spot as possible to save us some walking in the desert sand and heat.

Wrong call.

We got a lovely message from a couple of Sleepy Hollow fans and my reply to them turned into a whole introduction to Wilmington, NC. I thought I’d publish the whole thing as it really is a place worth visiting!

A friend and I are hoping to visit Wilmington, NC this summer to see some of the sets and featured buildings, maybe even a little shooting (rain or not, lol). Do you have the addresses of the sites you found while there? I would appreciate any help so that we’re not driving around Wilmington aimlessly all day. Thanks!

Hello! Oh, I’m so glad you asked and so happy that you’re going! It’s a lovely city with some interesting locations & friendly people :)

So, here’s a few tips…
