Vietnam War protests in downtown Ypsilanti

The storms of earlier in the week had moved on, and filming of the AWOL street riot scenes started again in downtown Ypsilanti last night.  The street was blocked by 2 old buses at Michigan Ave, and filming went on all evening through to the early morning.

Just an average night in Ypsilanti — random gunfire, barricades of trashed furniture, and angry crowds. It was a little strange that the angry crowds, carrying banners and in very groovy 1970s outfits, were entirely silent in their rioting. I guess they add the sound later.

Security was, I’m told, a little tighter than usual around the set due to the presence of a certain teen celebrity who may be dating one of the cast. However, I still managed to get some shots of Liam Hemsworth, Teresa Palmer and Aimee Teegarden. Will post these later.
