Stumbling upon film sets.

Discussion in 'SMB' started by Lord Alfred, Jun 12, 2019.

  1. Anyone found any interesting ones? Came across two in an hour when down in London for the play offs. "Gangs of London" was filming on the green opposite the Cricketers pub just outside Kew Gardens and Silent Witness were filming around the lake in Gunnersby Park.

    In the middle of the Namib Desert I rounded a dune and found myself in the middle of the shooting of A Far Off Place. Reese Witherspoon was sitting under a tree.

    In Bhutan I stayed in the same hotel as the entire crew of Little Buddha. I met Bernardo Bertolucci on the stairs, and spent an evening drinking in the bar with Chris Isaak.

    Bumped into David Luiz filming an advert on Westminster Bridge the morning of the final against City. Me and my pal were off our tits and walked into the shot, the film crew went mad. David Luiz found it hilarious and came and got pictures with us.

    Always happening in London, a couple of weeks back there was a tank being driven around during filming.

    I was present during some filming of the avengers I think it was, haven’t seen it so not sure if that’s the right one.
     
  9. Saw Morse being filmed in London once. I watched John Thaw and Kevin Whately in a car driving round a corner. That's not a film like.

    Stumbled into an office with a large black leather couch and came out 20 minutes later with an arse like a blood orange.

    I saw Brum tootling around on his own through a subway in Birmingham City Centre and followed him straight into the middle of filming.

    I once stumbled, quite literally, onto a film set when I was an extra as a student for a horrendous itv series called Barriers. Sian Phillips was in it and wardrobe obviously wanted to make good use of the costumes and forced the shoes she had worn on me. Now she must be 5 foot 7 or 8, her feet were bloody enormous, I'm 4 foot 11 and a bit with size 3 feet. It was ridiculous. Not to mention wearing someone else's shoes. I took them off after a bit. :)

    I work at Waverley station and they were building the set for infinity war next to our crew room for weeks and then weeks worth of filming. When I watched it the scenes lasted about 10 mins. Vision black widow and cap were there most nights. Couldn't get near them for pics or autograph like. Was weird seeing a huge metal girder being picked up by some geezer like it didn't weigh anything. Turns out it was made of foam but looked pretty real.

    I stumbled into a film crew in Manchester doing an ITV drama on Lord Longford, a side street not far from Mancunian Way.

    I had a visit to Pagsanhan Falls in Philippines, but knew beforehand it was where Kurtz was living in Apocalypse Now
