Location Hunting - 3/15/09

This is another update from Sam! Well yesterday me, Will, and Jimmy all drove out to Sugarloaf Mountain in Maryland to try and scout out some good filming locations. Well, I suppose "drove" out is a bit of an understatement. None of us had actually ever driven there ourselves, and as such we made the brilliant decision to not bring a GPS, map, OR directions!
Thus, we actually drove around completely lost for over an hour, and even tried calling people for directions! We actually filmed a bit of the ordeal, and it might end up in a future "Behind the Scenes" segment.




Thankfully, we finally found our way! Too bad by that time it wasn't bright enough to film anything, it was raining, and on top of that our camera was out of battery. Yes, this was a very poorly planned trip. At least our digital camera we brought still had battery life, which we put to good use by taking some random pictures along the trail. This is a picture of Will being very excited when it was mentioned that we should be safe while running down the trail:

Yeah! Safety!


So we just hiked around the mountain, scouting out places for future filming, and discussing where the story would go once we got to this part of filming. We even took some pictures of possible locales which we can build parts of the script around.


Sometime soon we'll go back up there and start the filming for the scene. What scene, you ask? Well... it wouldn't be very special if we just told everyone! But I can tell you that it involves some minor special effects and it is the start of a long journey me and Will must take! We'll be posting more updates soon! Keep watching for perhaps some big scoops, and maybe even a new trailer!


Happy Trails,

Sam.


PS - While there aren't any scenes like this in the movie, this is still a cool picture taken on the trail:
