Default View from My Office

They are shooting the new Red Dawn down here. It was kind of nuts getting into our structure today but the view from my windows is really cool today so far.
This is Woodward and Michigan ave


This is Griswold and Michigan and Layefette (I think)

I'd love to be there when one of the street bums crawls out of a dumpster to get his morning mocha and sees that view!

They filmed for a couple weeks in Pontiac. The fake gun shots really got people excited.

They are filming some of "You Don't Know Jack" this week sometime right outside of my office. "word on the street" is that Al Pacino will be in the scenes. That would be a real treat.

It's kinda annoying with all these actors hanging around the Detroit area. Jessica Alba keeps calling me wanting to "hook up" just cause she's in town.

Umm those aren't wolverines.. those are my dogs

I am actually in the Ernst and Young building. I am on the 4th floor in the northwest corner.

Apparently in the new version the Chinese are attackers. I have heard for the scenes they are shooting here they are using that parking structure as the exterior and the interior of the Dime building as the police headquarters. I just hope they know they had better not come between me and rio wraps...

My wife and I were down there for the race this weekend and saw the banners on the building on Saturday.... Not knowing the area, we were a little confused as to what was going on. Figured out on sunday what was happening when we saw the movie trucks on the road.

I thought they were doing the relays near where the movie was shooting?? Seeing how the streets are blocked off I'd think they had to move them?

They were filming part or it on vinsetta in royal oak (13/main area) a few weeks ago. That screwed with my drive to work for a few days.

It was great though, all the police cars and the military vehicles/personel, I'd hate to have been anyone from out of the area looking for a house to buy.

More Pics
They are walking somewhere now




Wow it was noisey for a while.

So um I am surprised none of you sickos are down here pretending to be producers scouting for "actresses". I noticed these girls talking to this guy and they were flipping their hair and twitching around and he gave them a card. I think they are wanna be starlets.
