Vacation Day 2: Behind the Scenes at Universal Studios


So this is an actual TV set for the show Parenthood. Since they were in the middle of filming, we weren't allowed to touch anything, and a mad looking security guard followed us everywhere!

As you can see, there are no ceilings, just rigging to move the walls around in case they have to shoot with different cameras. The coolest thing I noticed were pairs of shoes on the floor that looked used, and a basket of laundry set aside to make it look like a real house. Do you recognize it from the TV show?


Next, we were taken into the prop department. Those statues on the right side were used for "The Mummy." Recognize those?
Every prop has a barcode, and you can take them out just like a library book as long as you have the money to back up a percent of the cost of the item.

They had shelves and shelves of normal, everyday items like telephones from every era.
That was the costume used in Wolfman, as you can see on the ID tag around the wolf's neck. The other one, I'm not sure...

Stay tuned for the next post where we toured different movie sets like the Town Hall Street in Back to the Future, and the plane crash scene in War of the Worlds.

Awesome pictures! The "ceiling" one is what I would expect. There's so much lighting equipment needed for TV shows.

Very cool! So many things. It would be like a giant junkyard!

Fascinating. Being brought up at a time when the only entertainment was radio and film I always wanted to visit a film studio. The idea of actually being able to have a copy of a film and see it whenever I wanted to was the stuff of dreams. We never thought this would ever be possible.
