Man of Steel & The Pastor

written by Luciana XVII.VIII

One of the great things about a movie that films on location is that the residents simply never know when they and Hollywood will come together. Such was the case with Pastor Scott Hodge at the Orchard Community campus, who encountered Superman himself as Man of Steel was shooting.

I love those random, off-the-wall experiences that show up in our lives from time to time. Last week was one of these moments for us at The Orchard Community.

Here’s the story…

A few months ago, a location scout for Warner Brothers came by The Orchard to scope out our campus and explore the possibility of making it a short-term “base camp” for the cast and crew of the new Superman movie, “Man of Steel” that’s being filmed throughout the area this summer.

This would essentially mean renting our entire campus (building and parking lot) for about three full days where it would be used for the storage of the cast’s trailers, trucks, holding spaces for extras, rooms for the makeup and wardrobe departments, and space for the caterers to serve breakfast and lunch each day to a couple hundred cast and crew.

So after lots of consideration, conversation, contract reviews, etc…we gave them a thumb’s up….AND THEN worked really hard at keeping it all a secret (which wasn’t easy by the way!) until it was all said and done.

Well as many of you now know, last week was the week, and what a week it was! From Monday – Wednesday, our campus was flipped upside down by a couple hundred cast and crew working on the film that is slated to be released in June of 2013. And I gotta say, it was a ton of fun and a real pleasure to host what was probably a once in a lifetime opportunity. It was kind of surreal too, seeing celebrities walking past my office window and down the hallways of The Orchard. WHO, SCOTT, WHO??! Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Zack Snyder (Director), and Superman himself – Henry Cavill. (Sorry ladies, no Russell Crowe sightings…)

Fun times…great memories…and some fun stories to tell.
