So a few Charlie St. Cloud locations around Vancouver have been scouted according to the twitter of one of the location managers.

The first, my favorite, is Deep Cove, BC. And apparently Zac was there today. These twitters are what spurred me to make this post:

To orient yourself, an overview map:

1) Deep Cove

Looking southwest. Deep Cove in right middleground with Vancouver in background.

Looking basically northeast over the cove:

2) Steveston

Looking southeast towards Mt. Baker:

Looking west, Vancouver Island in the distance:

3) Gibsons

I have actually been through Gibsons on my way up the Sunshine Coast.

Looking WNW towards Gambier Island:

Ferry from North Vancouver to Langdale:

4) Strait of George

This information actually comes from an application for permission to film found here.

Shot from air: Eagle Harbour Park, Eagle Island out to Passage Island:

Basically what you'd expect, a lot of water :)

This post makes me miss the Pacific Northwest even more :(

Although CstC is not being filmed in its real setting... it is nice to see Vancouver's beautiful waterfronts being utilized. Most of the time Vancouver doubles for areas that, well, don't look like Vancouver.

I'm loving the Gibsons area.

This movie is sure going to look beautiful.

I know I said Zac should wear contacts... but now I see the benefits of Zac's blue eyes sparkling over these waters.

I fucking love that whole area around Vancouver. If I could live anywhere, regardless of money, accessibility, etc. I would live somewhere up Princess Royal Reach... it is so gorgeous:

Most of it is accessible only by seaplane or boat. It's heaven.

Expect more Canada-gushing from Zac come press time. :)

oh and the music is weird but w/e.

I wonder how many weather days they schedule, incase of unforeseen storms.

hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on July 27th, 2009 05:18 am (UTC)
IDK, I don't think storms like that are typical in Vancouver. They aren't that typical in Seattle anyway. I mean usually it's just drizzle and occasional windstorms. But the summers are pretty dry and sunny. I think this is a continuing heat wave for the whole northwest right now so idk what that means for more lightning.

This pic is amazing.

I'm really curious what cemetery they will be using. Or if they will create something on a soundstage. If they do they'll have a lot more control over the whole situation and can film despite any weather.
Troll St. Trollglamour_addict on July 27th, 2009 05:29 am (UTC)
I think theyd just create one on site, in addition to the soundstage.

It depends also on what tehy are willing to spend on effects. Digital matte paintings and all that...

but the more organic the better i say.

Confirming - everyone I know was OMG WTF at the thunderstorm that day. It was beautifully surreal, and I would love to hear Zac talk about it.

Also, agreed. Deep Cove is gorgeous and I'm so excited to see BC showcased some in the movie.

I was kind of disappointed when I heard that they weren't going to film in the actual setting but those locations are BEAUTIFUL!

I couldn't agree more!

so did you used to live up here or have you just visited a lot?

it's been SO. HOT. in seattle this week. and there was thunder last night, which i'm told is almost unheard of here.
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on July 27th, 2009 06:50 am (UTC)
Yeah I used to live in the Seattle area for about six years.

My sister still lives up there and I have friends up there so I visit relatively often. Eventually I want to end up back there or Portland or Vancouver.

I'm trying to remember if/when we had thunderstorms when I was there. idk. I'm sure it must have happened. I feel like I do vaguely recall seeing lightning there at least once but I can't really remember for sure, lol. Certainly doesn't happen a lot.
samwise gamgee.colfer on July 27th, 2009 06:52 am (UTC)
i've been here for a little over a year, and i really like it. i had lived in virginia my entire life, and you want to talk about humidity, oh wow. i love that there's none of that up here. i'm really glad i came out here. now if i could just find a steady job that i like, i'd be totally happy, haha.
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on July 27th, 2009 06:59 am (UTC)
i had a job in wa, then i decided to go back to grad school and moved. bad idea, lol. i love coursework, but hate writing my thesis :(

oh well. someday i'll be back.

also compared to where i grew up, seattle is majorly humid, lol.

but i remember the first time i went to the d.c. area my throat/lungs like died from congestion and humidity. like literally, lost my voice and was coughing and all sorts of uncomfortable-ness. though it was not as bad as the acute bronchitis i got from the pollution in las vegas.

i don't really have bad lungs or anything, but i guess i grew up in a place with so little pollution, it was overwhelming, idk.

i wish I decided on a thesis. Just took my grad comps for the 2nd time...why must professors change their test GRRRR! :(
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on July 28th, 2009 01:38 pm (UTC)
lol. i have kind of both, sort of... i mean i have a qualifying exam which is a day long and a thesis. but the test is nowhere near as bad as the ph.d comprehensive which is about three days long.
jessica3311: Chuck&Blairjessica3311 on July 28th, 2009 05:28 pm (UTC)
oh really? EEEK. Well for my comps I had 2 days 3 exams each for only 3 hrs :( I hate timed tests & i have really bad test anxiety...and this was my 2nd time taking them....so im praying by a miracle my douche of a professor passes me but since I saw he changed the whole thing i doubt it :( But god u have both???? I wish u lots of luck w/ that...i sort of wish maybe I should of done a thesis but i work full time so i thought this would be easier :(

Stunning! Perfect! I'd give up Footloose just for the location alone. :)

Fantastic choices and absolutely gorgeous. Those can totally pull off as seaside Mass. for sure.

Thanks for this C - at least now we've got points of reference.

I feel like hidden cove fits in perfectly with the ambiance of the book. Well done there!
