WEDNESDAY MAY 23 2007 : DAY 01 SET UP

 
 

Well after a long long 87 hour drive in the middle of the night and only 5 hours sleep, we arrived at the Convention Center Loading Docks. Once we removed our template trees and AT-AT Landing Platform base...

... you can get a clear view of all that we had to pack back in San Francisco. It's hard to believe all this stuff was in John's studio for the last 5 months LOL - Sorry John ;p

John doing all the HARD labour as I wait and take pictures in the shade of the cargo van LOL. Hahaha Just kidding, there is my arm sticking out the right side of the screen. Maybe I was hiding from the camera after gaining 15 pounds working on Transformers LOL.
XX

Some more stuff inside the van waiting to be unloaded. Wait.. what's that? Prizes perhaps??? Toys, Videogames, ILM Crewgear T-Shirts? :P
XX

As opposed to Indianapolis, Here in Los Angeles the Union Workors are STRICT. We could NOT carry ANYTHING in that would not fit in our arms. We had to place all our stuff on racks and then use a kind of giant saran wrap to secure the boxes together so they would not fall when being transported inside.

John and I trying to figure out if we need to go buy some more micro bark mulch. (we ended up doing TWO extra store runs to have enough for all the extra tables we used in the final Endor Diorama.)
XX

Helping John with the plastic wrap. That stuff sure clings and is harder then it looks. Don't laugh !!!
XX

Here our Union guy comes to lift the first rack into the Fan Fair Hall.
XX

One last rack and we are set to go. I wish I could have driven one of those trucks ;p
XX

Some micro bark for the ground and Bamboo Fencing used for the Ewok Hutt floors and bridges.
