Jaws Film Locations: Part 2

Alright kids, for this installment we are going to jump around the film a bit, starting with Brody's drive into town.

Here he is driving to work.


When I first compared the two pictures it struck me that maybe these scenes were filmed in the fall after the summer crowds had died down.  That might explain the dead grass.


Here is another shot taken a few seconds later.


This area has really been built up since.

After this shot he drives past the Amity sign, for some reason in my rush to take pictures I forgot to get the current shot.  Just so you know, it's a giant field, no remnants of the sign...


Later in the film, Brody talks to the Mayor. The lighthouse is right across the street from where the Amity sign was.


This scene is very deceptive.  I couldn't line it up the way I wanted, and as you can see below the lighthouse (Gay Head Lighthouse) is blocked by a large bush/tree.  The lighthouse itself is also further back than it appears in the films scene.  The Mayor must have been parked in the bush area.


This shot is from the scene where the shark enters the pond area where Brody's son is swimming.


The bridge has been re-done since, and was crowded with kids jumping off.


Finally, the beach


The beach is kind of over grown with grass, so the majority of the patrons were on the other side.


At this point you might be wondering "Hey, why haven't you shown us Chief Brodys' house yet?"  I am saving that story for part 3 which will be up on Friday.  The whole post will be devoted to it.

  17. Although the aroma of fresh popped popcorn and a darkened theater with a towering wide screen lures us to new released films, most of us still view far more movies at home than at the theater. https://putlocker.vg/tvshow/watch-supernatural-online-1622

We've seen the docudrama's accomplishment in films (Blair Witch Project), Sit-Coms (The Office) and Reality TV (Jersey Shore). This paper will investigate the way of thinking behind creating this cross breed kind. Putlockers

The Blank Check House

After the success of Home Alone movie studios did not waste anytime copying the formula (kid outsmarts bad guys).  While the worst offender was probably Three Ninjas, Disney was also guilty with Blank Check.  They even used it as a selling point! I saw Blank Check in the theater, I remember because it was the only time in my movie going life that the theater manager came out and talked to us about how the movie was filmed in Texas (which is where I live).  So, on a recent trip to Austin, I stopped by the Blank Check house. Here is how it appeared in the film: And today: As you can see, they've done quite a bit of remodeling. Not to mention the heavy plant growth which makes it almost unrecognizable. The old garage door is now a window The original entry way has been completely removed. This is the front door now: I drove around to the side and found the back gate open.  In the film, the back yard had a pool, go cart t

Back to the Twilight Zone: Part 2

After the clock tower, the most important set in Hill Valley is probably the cafe.  In the Twilight Zone, the area we know as being the cafe is a police station. In 1985 Hill Valley, it's Lou's Aerobic Fitness Center. The building has not changed that much since the Twilight Zone, all they really did was relocate the door and build that facade.  Funny how Lou went from owning a restaurant to a fitness center 30 years later. Mike Ferris also takes in a movie at The Savoy. The Marquee (and movie selection) was changed when this area became Hill Valley A close up shows, that those busts have been there for quite a while. One scene that really threw me off, was when Mike walked past a drug store. It looks like the clock tower is behind him, and the reflection in the window looks like the post office building, but something about the geometry just didn't make sense to me.  I looked for more pictures of the set fr

Film Cameras: Sprocket Rocket

The second camera I brought with me to Walt Disney World was the Lomography Sprocket Rocket. This camera is modeled after a toy Dick Tracy camera from the 1940's.  Like the Diana it is plastic and completely analog.  You wind the film manually, there is a dial for focusing distance, a switch for  shutter speed based on sunny vs. cloudy, and another switch to take the photo normally or in bulb mode (where you leave the shutter open as long as you want).  It takes 35mm film, but because the photos are more panoramic you get 18 shots instead of 36.  One of the coolest features though is that you can expose the entire piece of film, including the sprockets. Here's one that I took of the Tea Cups using Bulb Mode. Conclusion:  I'm a huge fan of this camera, no complaints.  It didn't wind itself in my back pack like the Diana did, and it even if it had, you can wind the film backwards t
