A Good Day (Part 4)

In the afternoon we were taken to the vehicle room. Here they had on display ‘hero’ vehicles used in WB productions. By hero vehicles they mean the car and such that were used in normal shots, not in stunt photography. These vehicles were the actual ones. not reproductions.

Cars From AI Here is a car and a flying vehicle used in the movie A.I. I’m a genre fan but it is a film I have never seen.

Hugo

Hugo Weaving was filming some Matrix related materials and showed up in the vehicle room. No, he didn’t – this is a Hugo Weaving dummy. They made a lot of these for the duplication scenes in the recent Matrix films, but it looked too good not to get a picture of it. ┬áThere were more of these in the museum, but I discuss that and the prop and costuming departments in my next post.
