Starry Eyed

So...right now, out in front of my house on my street in my little town...

...large trucks, much activity, noise, etc...because a film crew is using MY STREET to film part of a movie!

It's called "Betty Anne Waters" and stars Hilary Swank. The production set up an office in Ann Arbor and they have been filming all over the area for about a month. Today they are filming on my street! My house could be in the movie!

Yesterday when I got home from work there were trucks all over the place and when I walked to yoga class I asked some guy if they were filming tomorrow and he said yes and I promptly called my boss to schedule a vacation day because I am SO staying home to watch what happens!

OK now someone has fired up a generator on my treelawn...man that's noisy...it's 7:30 am, people!

Anyway, it's supposed to be 65 degrees today, too, which means I won't be cold while I sit outside to watch the proceedings.

My BFF poked fun at me but I told her to be quiet because while SOME people live in New York City and every block has a film crew on it, these things just don't happen here. Like, ever. And the fact that this is taking place on my front lawn? Even crazier!

Well, I guess I'm up now...no sleeping with that racket going on. Now, to sneak some pictures from my window...

Oh, sweet!!!

raulgonemobile's got a good idea there - just hang out around the set & maybe they'll rope you in :)

go for it, and if they say no, go raid Ms. Swank's trailer.

yea we had the Clooney in town last year filming Leathernecks here. some folks encouraged me to try out as an extra for the football team, but i was too tall.

you should totally work out on the front yard all day just to see if you can get in the background! happy st patty's day!

I think you could be a stand-in for Hilary Swank.

Can you make your teeth grow seven sizes in time?

No, really. Like, you soo need to get over this. In New York, film crews are sneered at and considered an inconvenience. They slow us down. I gotta use that sidewalk, buddy!
