Good things come to those who follow their joy. In 2013, a group of 3 Finnish “fangirls” decided to travel the UK scouting out the scenes from their favorite movies and TV shows. 2,000 miles later, the girls accomplished their mission and had an amazing time doing it. Rather than printing out pictures to contrast them with the backgrounds as many have done in the past, the girls used their phones and tablets to show the original scenes. They documented their journey on their website FangirlQuest.com and gained much love from the internet.
The girls explain, “The idea of visiting filming locations and comparing them to what was seen on film is certainly nothing new. But we hadn’t seen it done with tablets and phones before, so we thought we’d give it a go. Like giving it a little modern kick.”
With their well received project, the girls were able to crowdfund a 7,500 mile roadtrip across North America from Vancouver to New York, as well as some smaller UK trips. They have been to film events, geek conventions, and red carpets galore. Check out their blog and the stories behind the pictures on their blog.
