I talked with Guy and Andreas from the Location Department and they politely stated that they don’t like photos taken of the set at anytime or of the actors. So I sadly deleted the one I had posted and the rest of them I had in the camera.

They added that if you do take a picture not to use your flash and refrain from posting it anywhere online (social media, blogs, websites, portals).

They said they couldn’t stop you from taking photos if you were down the street a ways, (or far away using zoom) but there was a tone in their voices that said, “please don’t do this either.”

That said, I opted out of going back all together and decided to wait for the movie to come out in 2016 🙂

March 5, 2015 through next week: filming on Indian Wells Drive, Sun City Center, FL
