Watched mr robot filming yesterday!
Hi everyone! I made the trek to NYC to try to see Mr Robot filming this weekend. I literally flew from across the state, got off the plane and went right to the location. They were in the middle of filming a scene in the street and we were able to walk right up and watch them. We saw Sam and Carly working through a scene with another character rehearsing, then they set up the real shot in full costume after awhile, and shot it several times over and over. All the while we were sitting on a stoop watching silently. They then moved to scenes where they filmed the exterior of Elliot’s apartment and we saw Martin Wallstrom filming several scenes. He smiled at us and nodded as he walked by. He was very serious!
After awhile (by awhile I mean 8 hours) we finally saw Rami, he literally appeared out of nowhere on the set. It was one o’clock in the morning at this time. We saw him walk by us on the street and go into a tent with Sam. We could hear them discussing scenes and heard them playing a game with the crew. Then Rami came out of the tent and got into a van, and looked over at us through the window. The van took him to base camp wherever that was! Later Martin got in the same van without rami in it because he had finished for the night.
It was a very cool experience to see a show filming right in front of my eyes and see the actors up close! I won’t reveal any of the scenes I saw filming but I thought I’d share this experience.
