Today seemed to be more crowd scenes — student protests on campus. 1970s extras filled the small square, a lot of tie-dye, plaid and paisley. Teresa Palmer and Liam Hemsworth here in the middle of the scene.

Austin Stowell, watching the scenes. No one seemed to notice him, or the rest of the cast sitting at the cafe.


The lovely Teresa Palmer signing autographs for fans on the set of AWOL in Ypsilanti.

The super cute and really nice Aimee Teegarden.

Both Teresa and Aimee went out of their way to interact with the fans waiting. We’re not naming names of those who were far less willing to do so. I know it must be tough to be a celebrity (ha!), but a ‘crowd’ of 5 or 6 people isn’t really that intimidating. Be nice, it doesn’t cost anything.

P.S. Security were great too. Movie stalkers always appreciate that!

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.

Yesterday Teresa Palmer and Liam Hemsworth were filming right on Michigan Ave in downtown Ypsilanti in a diner made to look like early 1970s Michigan, with appropriately attired extras. I have to say that most inhabitants of Ann Arbor could be used in the movie with little wardrobe adjustment! Though there are a lot less placards carried these days, and I doubt that many wander the street carrying a tamborine–apparently that was a required accessory back then. Gotta love the ‘fros.

AWOL was filming yesterday in a diner on Michigan Ave.  More photos to follow, but for now here’s a teaser of Liam Hemsworth and Teresa Palmer on set.
