Smlm kan baru ckp nothing interesting ever happens kat ceruk Plymouth ni kan?
Well, tu sblm teringat yg Alice in Wonderland ada buat shooting kat Plymouth, you alls, of all places. Kat Antony House, Torpoint, utk scene minum ptg at Mad Hatter's Party. Even the 250 or so extras tu pon amik org2 Plymouth jgk. Alice in Wonderland 2010 tu baru aje premiering smlm kat Leicester Square, and will hit the cinemas on March 5 di UK and USA. X de sebab pon patut bergumbira sbb nothing concerning me, but as Plymouthian (chewah dan2 ngaku), harus la berbangga sket ngan kawasan molek kaya dgn keindahan alam semulajadi ciptaan Allah ni kan heheheh... *kembang kempis idung jd Plymouthian*
Ni excerpt drpd berita The Plymouth Herald, dated September 2008 masa shooting tu tgh dibuat. I wasn't even in Plymouth then!
kalo x harus nampak muka aku menempel jadi extra gak
"... Meanwhile, at Antony House filming has started and has already been creating a buzz of activity at the historic site. For the coming weeks more than 250 extras, from Plymouth and surrounding areas, will be dressing up and acting in scenes under the expert hand of Tim Burton.
And yesterday The Herald visited the set to catch a glimpse of tinseltown’s adopted home.
Surrounded by women wearing the period costume, complete with corsets, wigs and bonnets, it was The Herald photographer and I that looked out of place in the grounds of Antony House.
Walking down the long and winding road towards Antony House you could imagine what attracted the gothic-inspired director to the setting.
Ancient oak trees overarch the stretch blocking out the sunlight.
Despite the hustle and bustle of the film set further down the road, the estate’s silence is deathly.
Upon reaching Antony House itself you immediately realise the grand scale of the production. Between 600 and 700 people, ranging from actors, extras, cameramen and production staff, are believed to be operating at the site. Hundreds of cars park in a field converted to a make-shift car park. Adjacent to them are large trailers presumably used for wardrobe fittings and catering and hospitality.
Big, burly – but nonetheless friendly – security guards line the site like a human brick wall.
Despite the disappointment over Depp, looking at the set and those involved you can see that the local economy has to be a winner in all of this. Countless taxis and catering companies are present at the site, and all the actors and production staff involved are presumably staying and dining locally.
While Disney will no doubt add its own glitz and glamour to the scenes, you have to admit Tinseltown’s visit is a great advert for what we have on our own doorstep.
Alice in Wonderland, which is due for release in 2010, will be shown in 3-D and will see Australian newcomer Mia Wasikowska play the part of Alice...."
Very the hypeeee one kan? So when you are seated in the cinema and enjoying the scenes in Alice in Wonderland, sila2 la ingat kat Oyis di Plymouth ye? Hehe..
Oh dah hampir sunset. Masa utk berbuka posa!!!
Tomorrow Music Festival akan start dgn rasminya. At sun rise (7.30 a.m) please make myself available utk Sunlight Symphony. Ni konsert yg mana muzik adalah dimainkan oleh matahari. As the light hits the windows that are equipped with sensors, music will be played, but the intensity and layers of sounds tu ditentukan oleh cahaya matahari. Very interesting concept!
Other musical events I want to attend:
5.30 pm: Launch
6.30 pm: Concert & Film (As Scored By Antonino Chiaramonte)
3.00 pm: Concert (Dirty Electronic)
4.00 pm: Concert (Interface III) <--- ahli Lab aku perform
7.30 pm: Concert (Ten Tors Orchestra) <--- hajat je la, x tau dpt ke x dah lewat
2.00 pm: Demonstration (Singing Robots)
6.00 pm: Concert (Electroshop)
Of course in between time yg aku catat ni pon ada event and other concerts, right up to 9 pm everyday, but kena select2 je la, x dpt gi semua bcoz of family and other commitments. Pastu next week plak ada perjumpaan ngan SV and Co-SV hari Wednesday. Yikes!
