I can remember reading the classic Clifford the Big Red Dog books as a child and have always had a special place in my heart for them. So, I’m excited to share with you all that Clifford is coming to the big screen in November 2020! A few weeks ago Paramount invited me to New York City to visit the movie set of Clifford the Big Red Dog. My son even got to tag along with me!
My son and I already had a vacation planned to the Northeast so it was great that he was able to come with me. We just ventured on to our vacation straight from the set visit. I’ll be sharing lots of details about our adventure with you soon. But first, I’ll give you a sneak peek into the fun of the new movie Clifford the Big Red Dog.
The movie set was actually based out of the city on Long Island. As soon as we arrived to the lot we were taken into the red room where we got to see an actual scene being filmed for the movie. It was really fun for my son to see how everything is made. It’s a lot different than we might think it is once we see the movie on the big screen. And he loves to learn new things.
Once we finished viewing the scene being filmed we got to sit down with some of the cast including Darby Camp (Emily), Jack Whitehall (Uncle Casey), Izaac Wang (Owen Yu ) and Jordan Kerner – (producer). They were all so friendly and answered some great questions for us.
It was exciting for me to get to share with my son parts of my job that he normally doesn’t get to see. He really enjoyed learning from the cast and getting to meet them. He absolutely loved Jack Whitehall and thought he was very funny!
Of course, I loved seeing Darby Camp as Big Little Lies is one of my absolute favorite shows! We all know her from that show as Reese Witherspoon’s daughter. Izaac Wang was hilarious and while only being 11 years old, he was extremely bright and wonderful to interview. The producer, Jordan Kerner, told us a lot of interesting facts about the new movie that I can’t wait to share with you. I’ll be sharing my interviews of the cast once we are closer to the release of the movie.
We also got to walk through parts of the movie set in between filming to see how some of the locations are filmed.
We toured Emily’s apartment which is where they were filming the scenes.
During our visit they were working on building Owen’s apartment. You can see a big difference in Emily and Owen’s apartments. Will be so neat to see these in the movie next year! It’s so interesting to see these and I can’t wait to share more with you soon!
