Joey Bragg and Caroline Sunshine Join Nash Grier and Cameron Dallas in The Outfield

IMG_5912.PNG

Fullscreen Films is bringing Disney stars Caroline Sunshine and Joey Bragg together with Viners Nash Grier and Cameron Dallas. The four are starring in a movie about a baseball team called the “Owls”.

Here’s info from Fullcsreen’s website:

“The Outfield” starring Nash Grier and Cameron Dallas kicks off production this weekend. I’m personally very excited, after developing this for over a year with them specifically in mind. We’ve got a great team behind it, and the story is personal to me since I based it on the small town where I grew up. Follow more about the film while in production at OutfieldMovie.com.

Here’s IMDB’s description of the plot:

“Three Varsity baseball players, who have been best friends since childhood, enter their senior year of high school and navigate difficult choices on and off the field.”

To learn more follow the stars and @outfieldmovie on Twitter.

Here are pics from Twitter:

Visiting the Pretty Little Liars Set

I didn’t watch Pretty Little Liars from the beginning but my friends kept talking about it and telling me I would like so finally this fall and winter, I’ve watched every episode of every season on Netflix and got caught up for the current season!
I’m obsessed with the show and follow all the theory and rumor accounts.

My mom knows I love the show and my birthday is coming up so she arranged with one of her friends for my friend and I to visit the set yesterday.

Pretty Little Liars airs on ABCFamily and is set in Rosewood, Pennsylvania but films their episodes on the Warner Brothers Lot. The pilot was shot in Vancouver, Canada but the show soon settled in Burbank, CA.
Gilmore Girls was filmed using many of the same buildings.

As soon as we got though security, we saw sound stage 6. We didn’t know it at the time but that’s where all the inside taping happens. All the scenes that happen in their bedrooms and classrooms happen in there.

The first building we recognized was Rosewood High School.

IMG_5765.JPG

So much of the show happens here and even on this porch. When Emily was trapped in the school, she escaped through one of the front windows.

IMG_5766.JPG

Right around the corner from the High School is the City Hall.

IMG_5771.JPG

The two buildings are actually part of the same building although they are filmed as two separate buildings.

IMG_5790-0.JPG

The next building we found was the church where SO much happens

IMG_5778.JPG

IMG_5745.PNG

We were surprised to find the door open.

IMG_5780.JPG

Some buildings are just facades or actually offices that are only used for exterior shots but the church was wide open and looked awesome!

IMG_5783.JPG

IMG_5782.JPG

We saw a golf cart that was for the producers and jumped in for a few pick pics!

IMG_5777.JPG

IMG_5779.JPG

IMG_5776.JPG

We even found a message from “A” !

IMG_5784.JPG

We thought Toby’s, Allison’s, Hanna’s houses would be by the church but they weren’t. We set it to find more sets from Pretty Little Liars and found other sets like this one from ER:

IMG_5797.JPG

We found the Apple Rose Grille which looks a little different without furniture and the signs

IMG_5794.JPG

IMG_5796.JPG
Apple Rose Grille, better known as The Grille, is the local Rosewood restaurant where the girls frequently hang out when they want a bite to eat. They went there often in Seasons 1 and 2 but have only been there a few times since.

IMG_5879.PNG

We came upon the steps where this very intense conversation happened!

IMG_5866.JPG

Here’s Radley’s Sanitarium all cleaned up. alexirob.files.wordpress.com/2015/01/img_5873.png”>IMG_5873.PNG

IMG_5805.JPG

IMG_5801.JPG

Radley Sanitarium is a mental institution where Mona Vanderwaal was sent, after her reveal as A. Spencer Hastings was also housed there for a time, being placed in the same room as Mona was, and Marion Cavanaugh was also there for some time before the start of the series. It was a key place and location in Season 3.

http://pretty-little-liars.wikia.com/wiki/Radley_Sanitarium

We still hadn’t found any of the houses, barns or the lake and it was getting dark but we kept exploring.

We finally found something that looked familiar!
Lost Woods Resort!

IMG_5810.JPG

IMG_5905.PNG

The Lost Woods Resort is a motel located somewhere outside Rosewood. Mona brought Alison here after her attempted murder, and convinced Ali to disappear and pretend she died. This was also where Alison went after Duncan flew her from Hilton Head. Also, It was formerly “A’s” secret lair. The Liars visit this place because they thought “A” was following Alison here. –

There was a creepy barn nearby.

IMG_5814.JPG

We even found one a “A” lairs.

IMG_5864.JPG

And a very important fireplace.

IMG_5908.PNG

IMG_5818.JPG

We found the lake by the Hasting’s cabin. But I guess when they aren’t filming there it’s drained! We walked right though it.

IMG_5895.PNG

IMG_5894.PNG

IMG_5826.JPG

It was getting really dark by now but we found the greenhouse too.

“The Greenhouse is an abandoned structure somewhere in Rosewood. The girls went there in Season 2 when they wanted to meet in secret after their seperation.” http://pretty-little-liars.wikia.com/wiki/The_Greenhouse

IMG_5900.PNG

IMG_5898.PNG

The next familiar building we found was Hanna’s house!

IMG_5847.JPG

IMG_5848.JPG

We looked around for other houses but it was getting really dark and we were getting scared, so we headed back to the entrance.

We stopped by the sound stages where all the interior scenes are filmed.

We had a great time exploring “Rosewood”.
Hope you enjoyed this blog – follow me on Twitter @alexirob and IG @alexi.rob

There are tours available at the Warner Brothers lot in Burbank for about $50 not sure which of the PLL sets and buildings you’ll be able to see but I’m sure you can see the church, high school, city hall and The Grille. You might even see things we didn’t get a chance to see.

Tips for Meeting Celebs at Disneyland

IMG_5479.JPG

Most people I know love Disneyland AND love meeting celebrities so how cool would it be to meet a celebrity AT Disneyland?

Many celebrities visit Disneyland each day. I’m pretty sure Disney Channel, ABC, and ABCFamily celebrities get to go for free as a perk of “working for the mouse.”

One of the best tips I can give you is to follow @DisneylandCeleb on Twitter.
They are great at checking Twitter and Instagram and letting their followers know who is in the parks on any given day.

You can also just do a quick search of the hashtag #Disneyland and check your favorite celebs’ timelines for mentions about upcoming trips to Disneyland.

Once you are at the parks, keep your eyes open. Celebrities look like the rest of us and could walk right by you. Many bigger, more popular celebrities/ athletes will be escorted through the parks by “a plaid”, a cast member who guides the celeb to rides they want to go on and provides information about shows, restaurants, characters and anything else the celeb wants to know.

Sometimes, a celebrity is staying at a Disneyland Hotel and you might run into them in or around the lobby.

A few times during the year, casts of Disney Channel of ABC shows come to the park to film something like the Christmas Parade.

Social Media celebrities and YouTubers are VERY likely to visit the parks around the same time as VidCon in July or other conventions that draw that group!

Many celebrities come to the parks around the holidays. December seems to be a very popular time for celebrities to visit!

Drake Bell and Miranda Cosgrove seem to be visiting the parks a few times a month.

OK, so now you know how to find out IF a celebrity is at Disneyland .. Now what?

Please remember that many celebrities just want to be at Disneyland and enjoy the rides and attractions with their friends and family without being stopped for pictures or to sign an autograph.

When it’s probably a good idea NOT to approach a celebrity at Disneyland.

If a celebrity is:
walking with young children
looking straight ahead
focusing on family/friends
turning their back to the crowds
not making eye contact,
wearing sunglasses / hat / scarf
using their phone
not posting that they are at Disneyland

These are signs that they aren’t feeling like being social with fans. You can still try to say “hi” but don’t let it ruin your day if they ignore you or don’t respond.

They know that if they appear friendly and social and agree to take a pic with one fan, other fans who are around might ask too and then cause a scene.

When it’s probably ok to approach a celebrity at Disneyland.

The celebrity has posted on social media that they are there.
He/ she is smiling and making eye contact with people.
He/ she is wearing something that reflects their show / channel/ act.
(Some celebrities are at Disneyland hoping to meet fans and promote their projects)
He/ she looks relaxed, friendly “approachable”.


If you are able to find a celebrity and they look approachable, here are some tips on speaking with them.

DON’T:
Scream / yell
Call them by their character’s name
Ask them for their autograph, a selfie AND to call your dog and sing “Happy Birthday”
Touch / Hug them without asking
Over share – you may know everything about them but you are a stranger to them
Bring up personal info – even if you may know that they just had a break up or loss.
Take up a lot of their time

DO:
If possible approach them in a non crowded area .. Not in the lines
Or the middle of a crowd.
Let them know how you know them
/why you love them “I love your YouTube Channel I’ve been watching since____” “I love you on _____”
Be respectful of their space.
Be respectful of their time.
Keep your time with them short.
Ask for a picture if you want and they seem friendly and take it quickly, quietly.
Thank them for their time.

I hope I helped you meet a celebrity at Disneyland!
