On the set of SPN: Take 1, Walls full of Fans   

I’m back! Actually, I literally just got home. Dan would so make fun of me for jumping right online to post but I was dead on my feet twenty minutes ago and now I’m wide awake. Anyway, this isn’t going to be much of a post about my day on the SPN set. It’s just a quick wave to say I’m back and that I hope to have stuff written up soon. I’m going to link to some pictures below but I’ll get the rest up as soon as I can go through and weed out any that pertain to the finale or episodes that haven’t aired yet.

Don’t get too excited, though, I don’t have great pictures of J2 (this one is my favorite). The set they were filming on while we were there had smoke machines going full blast (apparently they use them a lot on the show) so it was impossible to get a clear shot. Plus, we only got to talk to the boys for about fifteen minutes. No time for pictures, etc. Just warning ya!

I will say that everyone on the set was sweet and patient and so willing to take a few minutes out of their busy day to talk to us about the show. It’s clear that they really love it. And no joke? They are crazy busy ALL THE TIME. Anyway. More on that later.

For now, I wanted to post pictures of the postcard wall. I remember seeing the posts about the campaign and, you guys, the wall of the postcards is CRAZY AWESOME. I took lots of pictures but they don’t do it justice. I don’t know if anyone will be able to find their postcards but I made sure to get a close up of [info]lostt1‘s card since it was the one I recognized. I also got a few shots of the one they had framed… Follow the link below to view a few of the pictures and follow the link below those to view the rest of that series (or to get the higher res versions of any of them).

The rest!

So, umm, I’ll be back when I’m not ready to eat a horse or pass out.

    Hi, you don’t know me, but you took a picture of one of my Plastic!Winchester cards! Close up! On purpose! *dances* (sorry, I’m very easily excited – feel free to go about your business :) )

    Cool. I look forward to what you have to say about your visit. I’ve been keeping an eye on the tv addict and duckyxdale’s sites as well as yours just waiting for the scoop.

    The wall looks awesome! I’m glad you had a safe (and good) trip! I think the picture you posted is twice as good because it’s not just a random online photo. You took it. How cool is that?

    Can’t wait to hear the report. I was pretty sure from the Paley videos that they truly love this show, but it’s nice to hear it confirmed again and again. I hope they got the same vibe from the set visit about the fans’ love of the show, too.

    Running out the door but I had to comment real quick because YOU TOOK A PICTURE OF THE BOYS GHETTO MAILBINS. I LOVE YOUR EYE FOR DETAIL!

    Anyway, thanks for stopping in so quickly with some tidbits despite your inevitably exhausted state. :)

    Thank you so much for posting these! Can’t wait for the whole report! :)

    One quick question – would it be okay to post a link to this entry in [info]dean_sam – a huge Supernatural community! I know a lot of fans would really appreciate it and are dying to know more facts about the set and J2! :)

    I was lucky enough to recognize 2 of my cards in another photo of the wall and seeing them here too makes me even more happy. Sounds like you had a good time, can’t wait for more updates :)

    AHH! SO awesome! Thank you for taking more pictures of that wall. (I see mine yay!) I think that is one of the best things the fandom has done, I’m so glad we did it!

    These pictures are great! (Here via a spn comm) Glad you had a great time there. That J2 pic is awesome; they look so in their own element, which makes for a real and honest shot of them. Thanks for sharing this with us!

    How exciting! The pictures so far have been great, I can’t wait to read your full report.

    The set they were filming on while we were there had smoke machines going full blast (apparently they use them a lot on the show) so it was impossible to get a clear shot.

    That was interesting to read actually. I bet it does help add to the moodiness of the show. Nifty!

    I hope you got to eat something and that you didn’t pass out. Or at least, we near a comfy bed when the passing out occurred. Heh.

    You know, as jealous as I am (which of course, I really am), I love that you took those pics. Especially the close up of mine. Thanks for that. I still have a hard time grasping the concept that they actually did get it. :)

    Can’t wait to hear more about your time on the set.

    Lucky you. I’d do almost anything to go to the Supernatural set and see the boys. =)

    I’m friending you because, since I am also a TV whore, we have so many TV shows in common. The Class, Boston Legal, Lost, and Supernatural, just to name a few. =]
