Lights, Camera, Action: ‘Ides of March’ at the University of Michigan

Posted: March 18, 2011 in Ides of March

A beautiful Spring day on campus for the filming of Geroge Clooney’s movie, Ides of March. Today filming was in the Michigan League Ballroom.

Just in case you were in any doubt where this was filmed… although the movie is set in Ohio at Kent State, today the University of Michigan became Kent State. Not Ohio State, because i’m not sure we could have done that even for George Clooney!

Lots of tents for Extras Holding and crew catering. There were a LOT of extras for the crowd scenes. I have to say that many of them seemed to have borrowed suits a little too big…

Outside the League, a group hold ‘Vote Morris’ signs, referring to Clooney’s character, Mike Morris, a Presidential Candidate.

    Lol – I haven’t been required to wear a suit coat in almost a decade. If I wasn’t on the bus already, I would’ve sworn you were talking about me.

      Funny! It was a general comment as I saw people coming out of the building! I’m going to watch movies extra closely from now on to see if the extras have borrowed clothes!
