So seems I am starting my VanCon reports a the end and working back...because i have to tell you that today I got to see some filming!

I was having a quiet day after last night HUGE VFX meetup, and went out to lunch with a couple of people. After that I went back to my apartment to rest, and an about an hour later got a message that they'd had a text from another fan who'd found where the show was shooting. They came and picked me up and we scooted across town.

Our luck was amazing. They'd been filming inside all day and now were setting up the shot outside a restaurant - with the Impala in the driveway. Its episode 9/05, written by Adam Glass and directed by Kevin Parks.

Before long, the shot the scene in which Sam and Dean exit the building, walk to the car and exchange a few words across the roof. I think they did about four takes, and at the end of one Jared took a pic of us and tweeted it. I'd say there were about 25-30 fans there.

We got to see them touch up Jared's makeup, and do some styling of those flowing locks which involved quite a bit of hair spray.

After Jared and Clif came over and handed out bottles of water. Jared joked that next time it would be wine, as he and Jensen are setting up a wine company together! They have a name for the company, not for the label yet, and joked they were still arguing about that. He chatted for a bit more and then soon after he and Jensen left - presumably to go back to the "circus" where their trailers were. The Impala was driven off and made THAT sexy sound.

Adam Glass came over to say hi, as did Kevin Parks who hung around answering obscure canon questions for a while. He invited us to go over to the other side of the building where filming was continuing, although it was going to be inside a black tent to pretend it was night. Still, being uber fans we went over. Aidan, Adam's son who i bonded with over the weekend, came over and sat with me and played on his tablet. The boys returned and then Clif said we had to move.

We found the Impala back around where some of the tech trucks were, and aside from not touching her, were allowed to crawl around her taking pics. The crew, who were obv working, were really nice.

So tick that off my bucket list!

Aw, you've got all the luck! Where were they? We were out and about hunting locations but didn't see any filming signs. Saw Jared's pic and still couldn't figure out where they were. So frustrating!
28th-Aug-2013 10:28 pm (UTC)
they were at the Tomahawk Restuarant in North Van, where we met up with the Tech Survey last week on the location tour. There were no filming signs up!

Yeah, I found that out later. Even went there on Wednesday, but of course they hadn't returned and were elsewhere. *sigh* No catching them filming this time. Maybe next year.

Hm, Jared is not fan-height.
28th-Aug-2013 07:39 am (UTC)
wow i can't say enough how lucky you ladies are :D
28th-Aug-2013 11:40 am (UTC)
Seriously, how are you so damn lucky?!?!?!?! I've been reading the last couple of posts and have been amazed at how cool your experiences have been and how nice it is of you to allow the rest of us unlucky folks to live vicariously through you!!!

Holy smoke I am so jealous, in all the best ways. What a cool experience. I always adore how into talking to the fans Jared seems to be -- he wants everyone to have a good experience.

Also. Loooove that picture!

Yay! I'm so glad you got to see some filming and meet the pretty lady! She's a beaut!

Stephen Amell has had pretty rousing success with his new wine company. I imagine Family Business Wines will do just as well. =)

As if fandom wasnt drunk enough already!

You're always at the right place at the right time, Sweetie!! :) What a great experience.

And guess what I found inside a book I had started reading years ago and used as a marker? A card from you that you sent me before WIncon in Denver that said it was good for one bucket of margaritas and a dance at the prom. *smooch* Miss you!!

Squee! wish i could be at Wincon again to see you and Julia and Erin and all! But so many cons and so little time (and money). Must say this Con has been absolutely amazing!

Apparently gmail decided all mail from livejournal was spam! I just found your reply.

Wincon was one of the best things in fandom EVER for me. I feel so proud to have been on the ground floor of it. If it hadn't been for Nashville, Erin and I would have never written the Sundownverse, which I consider one of my best stories! Alas, I understand the time and money restrictions these days. Actually time has become a more valuable commodity to me and I fear I'll never be able to make another con. But, I'm trying to be more active on Twitter and Dreamwidth so I don't totally lose contact with some of the best people in the world.

30th-Aug-2013 08:00 pm (UTC)
Yes - journal has been handed over!
