These Women Wanted To See Where Famous Movies Were Filmed, So They Set Out On An Adventure

Talk about fandom.

Nowadays, it's hard to find movies set in the actual world, as opposed to the movie magic world created entirely through green screen effects. But the reason for such modern postproduction techniques are pretty clear — You can travel anywhere, be it the eye of a volcano, dinosaur island or even outer space. 

Some movie buffs value the "real" scenery, however, and a select few even travel across the planet to find these prominent filming locations. 

This is exactly what two Finnish women did when they embraced their inner movieholics, and decided to see where their favorite scenes were staged.


1. "Harry Potter" at the Gloucester Cathedral, Gloucester, United Kingdom.

Tiia Öhman and Satu Walden, who go by the name Fangirl Quest, call their unique approach "sceneframing photography." They use mobile phones and tablets to superimpose a snapshot of a famous movie scene into a real life setting. This way the viewer gets to see what was left behind the camera.

"Visiting filming locations is the perfect way to see places you wouldn't necessarily find in ordinary travel guides," Fangirl Quest write on their website.

In 2014, Fangirl Quest crowdfunded a 7,500 mile roadtrip across North America. They got to visit cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles, Dallas, Atlanta and New York.

Now, Fangirl Quest is continuing their mission to bring their followers interesting, high quality content infused with whimsy. They don't just post sceneframe photos on their site, but also include stories from the locations, reviews and lots of other fun stuff.
