My son and some friends are doing an amateur video production about what would have happened if the world really did end on 12.21.12. They’re looking for suitably end of the world shooting locations that are publicly accessible. It is okay if the locality is on private property but can be filmed as background from a public area. Such as for example the alien looking sewage works out at the back end of Dunlop which can be filmed from a nearby public road. In the scene they shot there the actors simply carried on a conversation as they walked past the scene on the road in the foreground.
They would prefer to film at publicly accessible sites though.
Examples of locations they are looking for include:
- Overgrown roads or sections of highway where it is possible to clearly tell it once was a road.
- Derelict buildings both large and small.
- Striking natural scenery suitable for a ‘camp site’ location.
- Other end of the world looking locations.
It is preferred the locations be fairly quiet to allow for good audio quality when shooting scenes.
We’ve already found some good places like the previously mentioned alien sewage works, the mine workings at Captain’s Flat and some nice former Federal Highway alignment out at Lake George, but all suggestions are most welcome. Some closer to Canberra would be nice.
