A 11000km roadtrip to filming locations? Yup, we’re doing it.
Now that the last hours of our crowdfunding campaign are upon us, we thought we’d post a few words on why we’re doing it and why we think you might want to support us.
Please take a minute to read this 
WHY?
Because we LOVE tv, movies, theatre, books and all sorts of entertainment so much that we literally couldn’t live without them. We love the fans equally as much. Their creativity, their dedication, their good hearts, the sense of community.
Our sceneframing photos have reached tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of people already via our Tumblr blog and articles both online and in some of the biggest papers in i.e. the UK, US, Finland and Germany. And since people really seem to like the photos, that’s what we’ve decided to start with. We want to do it properly and with all our might.
But this roadtrip is only that: A Start. We have big plans for Fangirl Quest. We’ve talked about doing charity, organizing fan events, different kinds of art projects and photo projects… just keep on working and see what it’ll become.
WHY SUPPORT?
Obviously by contributing to this campaign, you’re supporting this one roadtrip and the sceneframing photo project. But once you do that, you’ll have also supported our future, life and happiness, as dramatic as it may sound 
And hey, it’s easy too! Make a contribution or tell your friends about us, but hurry! Our campaign is ending very VERY soon.

We lost Kurt Cobain 20 years ago.

Twenty years ago I was a young, foolish, but a pretty happy girl who had just discovered artists outside of radio’s top disco hit lists. I’d found out that music can be very personal, inspirational and quite mind-blowing if you just find the right artists to listen to. And of course I found grunge, because is there anything better in the world than that? 

Nope.

Nirvana - Unplugged in New York was my late night album. I’d go to bed listening to it, I’d fall asleep listening to it, and I’d sleep and dream while it was playing in the background until the cassette reached its end. 

It’s always sad to lose young people, but it’s especially sad when those young people have been the kind that inspired and encouraged other people. If they’ve been a big part of your life in any way or affected it in a positive way at all, I don’t think it’s wrong to say it then becomes a personal loss.

In April 1994 I had no idea what could happen during the next 20 years, but here we are now. So much has happened. Some bad, a lot of good, and I’m so happy I’ve been around to live it all.

I’m sorry you missed it all, Kurt. I’ll see you on the other side, but let me stay for a little bit more. But when I do finally cross over, I’ll look you up and fangirl the fuck out of you for the rest of eternity.

Movie: Batman Begins
Location: St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel, London, UK (website)

One of the most beautiful interiors we’ve ever set foot in: the grand staircase of St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel. Short bits of Batman Begins were filmed here, including Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) carrying Rachel Dawes (Katie Holmes) to safety and Batman (Christian Bale) doing this mighty jump through a huge cloud of bats.

The same staircase was used in the legendary Spice Girls video Wannabe, and other parts of the hotel in films like Harry Potter.

See more photos from the staircase in our London travel post!

Show: Merlin
Location: Glastonbury Tor (on Google map)

We visited The Tor on a winter evening, almost a year after the series finale, The Diamond of the Day part II aired. It doesn’t matter if many modern historians believe the Arthurian legend is just a story - the combination of being a fan of this show and knowing a little about the legend still makes the visit to a place like this utterly impressive.

From Glastonbury Tor’s Wikipedia:

The Tor seems to have been called Ynys yr Afalon (meaning “The Isle of Avalon”) by the Britons and is believed by some to be the Avalon of Arthurian legend. The Tor has been associated with the name Avalon, and identified with King Arthur, since the alleged discovery of his and Queen Guinevere’s neatly labelled coffins in 1191, recounted by Gerald of Wales.

Movie: Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
Location: Old Royal Naval College, London, UK (website)

From Wikipedia: The Old Royal Naval College (..) has “outstanding universal value” and is reckoned to be the “finest and most dramatically sited architectural and landscape ensemble in the British Isles.”

Once you’re stood in the middle of King William Court, you really can’t help but to agree. Dozens of famous movie scenes were filmed here, i.e. Les Misérables and Sherlock Holmes, but even if you weren’t a film tourist like us, you will enjoy the beautiful Painted Hall and the whole area as a travel destination.

The Welsh premiere of Noah
Cardiff, Wales, March 29th, 2014

Russell Crowe in Cardiff?! Mighty exciting!

Darren Aronofsky's Noah premiered in Wales and Russell paid a quick red carpet visit to our humble city along with his co-star Douglas Booth. We couldn’t make it there very early, but managed to get decent spots anyway.. and got a dorky selfie (dorkie?) with the man himself, as well as one of our sceneframing photos signed. I’d call that an achievement!

We really really really wanted to see the movie, too, but weren’t lucky enough to win any tickets from Cineworld's competitions.. but lo and behold! True fangirl patience is often rewarded! After most of the curious folks had left, a woman came up to us and handed us two invitations.

So we got to walk the red carpet and see the movie, which made us very very very happy!

This blog has been pretty quiet for the past few months, but that’s only because I’ve been busy with the Fangirl Quest blog and our photography project.
As some of you know, we’re planning to do a mighty crazy roadtrip starting from Vancouver, across the US in search of filming locations and to get some more sceneframing photos done. We’ve been working hard on this trip for months now and have big plans for the future of Fangirl Quest. 
But first, we need to get this roadtrip done. If you like my photography and enjoy what we do, I hope you consider helping us.
You can do that in a couple of ways: by contributing to the campaign (and getting one of the fantastic perks) or sharing the link with your friends and strangers i.e. on social media!
So please, visit our campaign page and check out our plea video and all the lovely perks we have to offer! I hope you like what you see and decide to help us on our way! We will love you forever if you do :)

NATIONAL THEATRE BACKSTAGE TOUR

National Theatre! We haven’t had the chance to see a play here yet, but I went to see Danny Boyle's Frankenstein four times in the cinema so we were very well aware it was on NT’s stage where that particular magic happened. Excitement!

And the tour didn’t let me down. We had a very lovely, enthusiastic guide who told us many stories from the theatre’s history and about how things work. We peeked in the actors’ dressing room hallways, stood on stage in the midst of the set of A Taste of Honey and got a glimpse of all sorts of backstage areas - like the very rehearsal room where Benedict Cumberbatch, Jonny Lee Miller and Boyle worked on their thing.
