Mint Condition

These are the last days of the filming of I Am Legend in Washington Square Park. Last night, onlookers were greeted with some surprises. There were piles of charred bodies, demolished autos like the one in the photo and fires burning in the park and street (click here for more photos). The fire department was on the scene with a firetruck - apparently to be on site during the use of fire in the filming. The film, due out in 2007, is based on the novel of the same name by highly acclaimed author Richard Matheson. This car actually was in mint condition from the filmmaker's perspective - I met the individual who did the work. He had no idea what it cost to create an authentic wreck like this, but we both agreed that it had to be a lot more than what most new cars would cost...

Isn't it funny that someone gets paid a lot of money to artificially create something that is lying in scrap yards all over the world. Very Interesting.
