When I say exploring, it is not a stretch. You spend so much time doing research, following leads, forming hypothesis, doubting your hypothesis and wind up scratching your head wondering if you are following the wrong trail. Tonight was no exception.
Although tonight wasn't as much of an exploration as it was great friends with great information and solid leads. Well, maybe I am selling ourselves short. There was definitely a bit of sleuthing involved. What it came down to was simply having the right information and the web of both locals who know their stuff and twitter with its proliferation of information.
When we arrived, the road leading up to and past the filming location was lined with cars and girls alike. I honestly was a tad bit afraid. If Eclipse wasn't filming here, you would never know it by watching the girls clasp their copies of Twilight hoping that maybe they would be able to thrust it toward a cast member and get them to scribble in it. The hope and expectation in the girls eyes was slightly unnerving. I understand fandemonium but no one has seen it until they have looked into the eyes of a 13 year old twihard. It is truly a thing of both beauty and absolute fear. I am truly afraid of being in the room with too many twilight fans. The law of averages alone tells me at least 25% of them are going to be straight up crazy. If you're lucky you will find the 1% you can make friends with but highly unlikely when information comes at such a premium! We left about the time the 14-16 year old fans starting filing in. I am thinking this was simply a move in self preservation. I do require my sanity to function!
Remember the scratching your head part? Well that is because even after it is all said and done, we have to wait for confirmation tomorrow that what we saw was even Eclipse and not some of the many other television shows and films being recorded here at the moment. We have just as many reasons to believe it is as to believe that it isn't. When it comes down to it, only time will tell. Maybe I will be watching a movie one day and be like "Damn, that's what it was." Or maybe tomorrow morning I will wake up and find photos of the lucky people that sat through the night waiting to get a glimpse of confirmation. Whatever the case may be, it was a fun evening.
