Last week we went location scouting in an abandoned building. You should know up front that there were no “No Trespassing” signs posted anywhere. So we’re kosher.
This was my view from outside, looking in through the broken window:
Shmuel asked me if I was coming in. I shook my head resolutely. So I was resigned to be the lookout, which was even scarier, because of course all I heard was cracking twigs behind me and distant dogs barking at us.
So I took these pics while I waited outside:
Until Shmuel called me on my cell saying I had to come in and see this:
The stairs that lead to the dark tunnels underneath the main factory floor. I was *very* spooked out. Birds nesting in the rafters were screeching. I kept hearing footsteps. Here’s what I look like when I’m scared and trying to look excited:
And here’s Shmuel exploring. What a daredevil.
This is all natural light, by the way. We tried the electricity; it had been turned off.
Here’s me, when we got out, frantically searching for an exit from the complex:
I definitely wore the wrong outfit for that trek.
Now tell me, please:

2. And who’s going to be responsible – if we do get permission – for cleaning it up and getting it ready for filming? I dread that it will be me…
