Hello, Shia LeBeouf!
The production company is here shooting some scenes for the upcoming Blockbuster hit (I say this because I love this franchise and Shia LeBeouf).
So far, this great adventure has had me on the phone all morning long. I’ve called three different production companies, spoken with an assistant location manager and a unit publicist.
Called the airport where they are supposedly filming and now I’m waiting on a call. Called the Air Force, which always makes me wait a ridiculous amount of time.
Called the tourist development council, they’re in a meeting.
I think it’s a conspiracy.
Two hours later
It is done. ( Click here to “Read all about it” )
I talked with every entity of the film — Production, the airport, the Air Force, the film studio.
It took what every journalist needs to learn: tenacity. Or if you want me to be blunt, not being afraid of annoying the heck out of people until they finally get on the film and tell you what you want to hear.
Learn it: Calling every 30 minutes is effective, even if it is annoying.
Now, if only Shia LeBeouf were here — that would really be the icing on the cake.
