Fanboy's Shoot (Day 2)

Mike and I showed up to the set this morning and had to take care of business first!!! Thats right.... chow time!

After chow, we meet with Amy and she had some not so good news for Mike. Apparently, R2-D2 was used in another scene so they could not use him him the Lucas Office scenes. So Mike moved his droid outside to sit out the filming. What timing, as soon as he got his R2 out, the van with all the primary actors came in. Mike ambushed them on the way in and got a great group shot with the whole cast!

Left to right - Chris Marquette - Jay Baruchel - Mike Senna - Dan Folger - Sam Huntington and Kristin Bell

I was going to try and get a group pic too, but it did not happen. So instead, I got a movie of me playing around with A1 with all the actors in the background!

This is R2-A1 final resting place for the scene. Right next to the Gentle Giant Boba Fett statue! They asked me to turn on his lights.

After the the opening scene, they had to reset. I moved A1 outside and spent most of the day doing this! Did'nt get back in till about 7PM.

After the final shot Kristin Bell was nice enough to take a pic with A1. She was really nice!

In one of the scenes, she uses one of Mike's props. Afterwards, she was nice enough to sign it and say hi to Mikes Kids!

Again, I have a ton of other pic's, but I cant show them till the movie comes out. I can say if R2-A1 does not get cut, he will been on screen!

Will Forte (Saturday Night Live and Beerfest) was also nice enough to take a pic with R2!

And at the end of the day, it's time to pack up the droid and head for home!

It was a long day and everyone was tired.... but man was it fun! Let me tell ya, they feed you well on set! We had steak, salmon and chicken for lunch. Oh the horror's of working in the industry!
