Tim Burton

When I was walking Eva this morning on the seawall, I noticed a large number of tents, ladders, people, and other miscellaneous paraphernalia outside the aquarium...

Seems they're shooting a Tim Burton movie called 'Big Eyes'...

Well, there's always filming going on in/around Vancouver. It's so normal to have roads closed off/etc that it's just a minor inconvenience navigating the city. There are always movies/tv shows/commercials/etc being shot, but I love Tim Burton, so this (to me) is actually worth mentioning :)

It should be interesting to see what *part* the aquarium, and Lumberman's arch, is going to play.

...now, time to walk the pooch again since she's standing beside my desk with her tail waggling...


  1. the joys of living in Hollywood North lol. Will you try and get a glimpse of the shoot - I've never seen one but would be fascinating. In Husk a book I read recently part of the action took place on a Tim burton set, the MC was an actor.

    1. Yup, in the summer, the city is full of tourists & film crews :)

      Part of the energy though, if I was going to complain about it, then I'd move out of downtown ;)

      ...and you know I don't want to do that :p

  2. That's really cool! You should see if you can be an extra for one of the scenes :D

    1. Haha, I've been at shoots before, not as an extra, someone I grew up with became involved in all the costume making/etc stuff.

      I hate even getting my picture taken (hence the black cat image), so walking in front of a video camera? Ha! Not likely!


Type me out a line of Shakespeare or a line of nonsense. Dumb-blonde-jokes & Irish jokes will make me laugh myself silly :)
