Movies. While I’ve never been that much of a movie person myself, aside from video games, they are probably the best form of entertainment that you can have in today’s society. They’re a perfect escape from reality, having a laugh, being scared, watching some action go on and maybe even you’ll find your celebrity crush while watching one! Movies have been around since the 1800s, and one thing that has never changed is finding an appropriate location to film. Location is an important aspect about every movie, because it needs to fit the plot and the atmosphere, and it also needs to have good specific spots in it so that a good action or perhaps fight scene can be achieved, like for example, the parking garage at the end of Furious 7, which perfectly collapsed to form a ramp so that Vin Diesel’s character Dom can jump his car straight into the chopper. And if you don’t have a location, you’ll probably need to create one yourself, which while it takes a bit of money from the movie’s budget (and by a bit, I mean quite a bit), but you’ll still achieve the shot that you wanted, like for example Hill Valley in the Back to The Future movies, and specifically the long, straight road where Marty reaches 88 mph and travels back to 1985. It’s all part of creating a movie.
But this person, which as of right now, we don’t know the name of, has been doing something really interesting: s/he’s been taking physical still shots of different classic movies and superimposing them on top of the locations that they took place in in real life, in the present day. It’s really interesting to see how all these movies came to be and where they took place. Check out the gallery:
Recognized any of these movies from your childhood? I bet you did, and you realized that you actually live close to one of them. And now you’re probably going to go there. Go on. We won’t judge you.
