Neil Gaiman is off in Budapest learning how to direct movies from Guillermo del Toro. Luckily he took daughter Maddie along and she’s been reporting from the set and posting an awful lot of pictures that we’re surprised they let out
Today we went on location to film Hellboy 2 and it definitely was not as fun for me. The temperature was about 100° F and 38° C, meaning it was quite hot! I got a little tan on my arms though! Anyway, they were filming up on a hill and I wasn’t allowed to go up there so I just had to sit down by myself and read my book, and occasionally people would tell me to move because I was in the camera shot. They are building a whole troll town in a quarry for the movie, and we got to go visit it today. The air felt really good down there because it was quite cold!! We had to wear hard-hats. Tee hee hee! Apparently where we were filming on location there were many ticks, and I was just wearing white flip-flops. Guillermo wanted me to wear socks so my feetsies wouldn’t be exposed to the ticks. We went to costumes to see if they had any socks, and they did. Unfortunately it was a pair of men’s long black socks. I think I might have looked a little funny walking around in pink shorts, black socks, and white flip-flops. Talk about embarrassing.
