|Salt being filmed in Albany|
About 10 minutes after we had unloaded our moving truck, Albany blew up with excitement over the release of Angelina Jolie's spy thriller Salt. Much of the film was shot in downtown Albany and once we got our hands on the dvd, we actually recognized the area as it was supposed to be Washington, DC.

We've never lived anywhere before that's had so much of a screen presence, so we're pretty pumped anytime we hear about projects going on in our area. Rumor has it that location scouts were in town recently checking out the RPI campus for a scene in Iron Man 3.
The new Bradley Cooper and Ryan Gosling movie, The Place Beyond the Pines, is set to start filming this summer in Schenectady (which is part of the Capital Region and btw-pronounced "skin-ect-ady"). When casting calls were announced in the Times Union newspaper, Brett got stars in his eyes! Unfortunately, he was just one of thousands that had stars in his eyes...

|Women waiting their turn...|
|....and more women waiting!|
No word yet on if he got the role, but the film is scheduled to start shooting in July, so we're keeping our fingers crossed!
