Star Spotting

Melissa and I went down into Ypsilanti tonight to listen to some free music at the Crossroads Music Festival and we ended up seeing a start! Michigan has been trying to bring in the film industry to help stimulate the state economy, especially with The Big 3 having such financial difficulties. They have been doing pretty good with it too, and tonight we got some first hand experience with it. While down in Ypsilanti listening to the music we saw that one of the side streets was blocked off to vehicle traffic, and down at the end we saw a bunch of people standing around. Being curious we decided to walk down and see what was going on. When we got down there we realized it was one of the locations, and at the moment the active set, for a new movie that is filming in the area. The movie is called Stone and tonight we got to watch a shot being filmed with a scene that Robert De Niro is in, and we got to catch a glimpse of him! Below are a couple of pictures that I snapped with my phone, one is of the set, and the other is of one of the production trucks. Clicking the images will bring you to the full size image file. The scene was at a party store called The Beer Cooler located at 22 S. Washington Street. I have to say, this was a pretty neat experience.
