Most of us have already seen the Michael Jackson Tribute wall on South King Street. Passing by it today to get a better shot, I stumbled upon the wall and saw a guy leaning on the wall dressed in the black and white outfit that MJ wore during Billie Jean.
All of a sudden, I hear the words "ACTION!" and realized I stumbled upon a set for a short film. I moved out of the way quickly and watched.
"CUT!", and a car rolls by. The actor comes into the shade for a little bit to wait for the stop light to turn green and as soon as the coast was clear, he propped himself up on the wall and stood as a statue imitating MJ's pose on the wall.
There were five of us there. The actor, the kid, the camera man, a woman watching the whole thing unfold, and myself, and the occasional passers by.
I stayed and watch as they filmed take after take. I could not stay very long but I was able to catch some pictures of the days events. I cant reveal who was doing to filming without their permission, but all I know is that its going to be shown at some film festival in Chinatown this weekend. The short film is still untitled. I will update if and when I find the short film online.
