Leaving the ATL
The simultaneous production shoots for Mockingjay: Part 1 and Part 2 have wrapped in Atlanta, Georgia. Which I just found more difficult than it should be to spell, weird week guys– it made spelling major US city names hard. However, now that production has wrapped doesn’t mean in the slightest that production as a whole has ceased! Nope, fear not fannish people of the world, for production is merely moving eastwards to the great continent of Europe.
If the tweet fits like Cinderella’s glass slipper, the cast, I’m guessing a chunk of the original crew (because many of them are Atlanta-based and they’ll need to hire new crew in Europe), are on their way to the City of Light. This means several things, one being that we may start getting touristy Twit-pics courtesy of our girl Nina Jacobson, and homeboy Josh Hutcherson. Also, if you’re not following either of them on the Twitter, do it soon– Josh occasionally goes crazy about college basketball, and Nina’s probably going to adopt the cat that’s playing Buttercup. Follow the linky links if you’re Twitter inclined. Alright, so what else does moving production to Europe mean? Well, it means that we’re in for even more awesome production value in this franchise, because if there’s one thing that Europe can boast, other than having amazing food most of the time, is its interesting, gorgeous, and interesting locations to shoot films. Paris for one has a bevy of film worthy spots to capture, from the catacombs, to the grand buildings, to the parks. But this is Mockingjay, so I can only guess that the locations their going to utilize are much less grand than say, the Arc de Triomphe, although it would be awesome if they could fit some of that grand, picturesque, and beautiful architecture into the films.
I’m jealous that they get to eat fresh Croissants.
