16 hours - The Search for Johnny Depp 9:30 - 12:45ish

OK gang - it's pledge drive time. :-)

Help me out by going over to The Isthmus Daily Page and reading (or pretend to read) my new article. Our Man In Columbus . However, I must tell you I lied. I really did not get Polar Bear food in my lap when you clicked the little red recommend. It was Beet Pudding and I am renegotiating (along with finding new clothing). Mixed up in the language obviously.
For anyone interested - the latest on the camera seems to by NOT Panivision and most are guessing some sort of HD. It could be a Red One Camera, but its certainly not panavision.
As for other stars - No one has seen anything good. There was a siting of Stephan Dorff but they are keeping a low profile it seems.

Boredom enters the scene and I'm walking about looking for action. I'm lucky as I can go in to get warm at times. There is one girl who was at the gates at 6:00 wearing a light sweater and a thin vest. She was there from 6:00 to 8:30 in 25-30 degree weather. DJ was very worried about her when she was no longer standing upright but bent over in pain.

This photo is one of the calmer times. It really got active when it got later in the day and the word spread that Johnny Depp was driving by at times.


I wander to the far side of town to see what is happening and take a short cut. I come upon the food trailer. SWEET - I'm pretty hungry - think they would mind if I helped my self?


I'm on the far side of Ludington and can actually see filming. This is the best spot I have seen so far. It is here where I meet even more that have read the blog. One guy looks at me and asks "are you grinder?" YUP.

I start snapping away. Notice the Indiana flag in this shot (it is Indian isn't it? Just going on what I heard). Actually the right hand side of the street is NOT in the movie. Nice touch by a business owner.

That is Michael Mann in front of the camera.

A little out of sequence but here is a close up of that little filming trick. All the driving scene's would involve going around the block so there were times where they would circle the block six or seven times.

There are actually three people on that sled - One guy is in the middle scrunched down.

The woman in the blue on the right - more then twelve hours in 25-30 degree weather in a thin sweater and thin vest. This is when she was standing upright. She never moved from the one spot! DJ was pretty worried about hypothermia. - OOPS - a little redundant!! sorry

I must take a break.



  1. Christine from PA here - great job, but you must get tired and cold yourself at times.

  2. Article read (and enjoyed). Red button clicked. Checkbook out. Pledge ready to make toward the New Wardrobe for Rod memorial fund...


  3. loving your articles on this. Thanks for taking the effort to report all the goings on.

  4. Don't understand what means DJ ?

  5. It's code for JD.

  6. DJ - short for my wife!
    CB - short Columbus Paparazzi which is also my step-daughter who followed Michael Mann and production bus (in earlier blog)

  7. I will be meeting Johnny Depp on Thursday night of this week. Just thought I'd share that.

  8. Hey, where are all the extras? Did you see them? Are they just in the cars.. walking on the street? OR not even needed yet?

  9. Mr Anonymous - My newest best friend ;-)

  10. BTW Mr or Mrs. Anonymous - I have been putting in a LOT of work here (wink wink).

    I hope it is paying off for Columbus!

  11. I didn't mean to post as anonymous before. I posted the comment that I will be meeting Johnny Depp on Thursday night. And yes, this is true.


  12. Does anyone know if Johnny is going to be in Columbus on Thursday. If so how late.

  13. Johnny is scheduled to be in Columbus on Thursday. Not a clue how late.

    Rod, nice article, clicked on the red reccommend, beet pudding? Boy howdy, you need a good agent!

  15. House arrest again!! (cop parked outside our house on Lewis Street blocking traffic...) Honest officer, I just want to get some parmesan cheese from the store! "Rod? Nope... never heard of him...No, I don't think he's a danger to anyone but himself... No, he's not stalking Depp, he's making a coffee table book!"

    Great Job - keep up the good work. I'm trying to get your daily hits up over 8000!

  16. As a former Hoosier, just wanted to confirm that you were right about the flag. Good eye!

  17. Just wanted to let you know I heard from the gal in the light winter attire (I was standing with her most of the day) She was fine. Just really cold... still today. I was cold just looking at her.

    Another fun day and another great blog!!!

  18. Does any one know the shooting schedule for Oshkosh, wi. I want to take my kids and check it out myself!
