Jumanji Film Locations

While I was in New Hampshire last week, I stopped in Keene to take some Jumanji comparison shots.

Let's start at the beginning of the film.


In the opening scene Alan Parrish rides his bike past a statue of his ancestor, Angus Parrish.  I had been to Keene once before and knew there was a statue in this square, so I assumed they just attached a fake plaque to it, I was wrong.


They  built the prop statue on top of this rock fountain.  Why not just use the existing one?


Here's another statue screen shot.


It almost looks like they tried to brush out the actual statue in the opening shot from the film.

This Parrish shoes ad can be seen briefly in the film and appears in the back ground of the second statue picture I posted.  Here it is today.

Moving onto the stampede scenes.


Turns out Frank's Barber Shop is still there too.



So is this old coke mural



Run Kirsten!



Stampede!



In this shot you can see the statue that's actually in the town square.


There is a church back there, the trees are just too full to see it.

While trying to solve the mystery of the second statue I came across this website.  It contained a photo of the Angus Parrish statue and explained how it was made!


In the fall of 1994 a movie company came to Keene tofilm some scenes for the movie Jumanji, starring Robin Williams and Kirsten Dunst. The following spring the company was to return to Keene to shoot some more scenes. The spring time scenes would be set in the year 1969 and as the president of a local car club I worked with the props manager to arrange for period correct vehicles to be available. I was able to move around behind the scenes and photograph what was goin on. One of the major background props for the film was the large advertisement for Parrish Shoes which is still visible downtown. Another major prop was a statue of General Parrish, ancestor to the character that Robin Williams played in the movie. (This is incorrect, but whatever)
The statue was created and painted to resemble a weathered bronze casting upon a granite pedistal. The statue is actually a closed-cell foam carefully carved and painted to give the effect of weathered bronze. The base is plywood that was painted to match the granite in the existing fountain on Central square. The "statue" was only in place for a few days during the the fall and spring filming. After the filming was completed in Keene, the plywood base and foam statue were essentially given to the city. Both components were being stored at the Colonial Theater the last I knew.


Wow, thanks guy!  Now I just need to go back to Keene and explore the storage area of the Colonial Theater.

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

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

Tales From The College Program: Getting Fired. Part 2

Getting my job back: Since Rat Face had gone as high as possible to get me fired, I decided to do the same when trying to get my job back.   Ed Backlor was the VP of Downtown Disney at the time, I decided to email him.   A day later I received an email from Djuan Rivers (who I just discovered is a Disney big shot now ).   Ed was out of town and had forwarded my email to Djuan.   We arranged a time for him to call me the next day.   I was pretty nervous as a sat there staring at my phone waiting for him to call.   I didn’t know where the conversation would go.   Djuan was very friendly, he had read my email and asked me some more questions about the firing.   I left out the part about how everyone eating for free so I wouldn’t get anyone else fired.   He told me the typical “well, I know it’s not a lot of money, but if everyone gave away $3.25 worth of food, it would really hurt the company.”   He said I could reapply with Disney in 6 months and when I did I would most likely be as
