Comlink Promo Shoot

Tonight I made a two hour, forty minute drive (thanks to Los Angeles rush hour traffic) to Burbank to help out with a promotional shoot for the Youtube series "The Comlink," hosted by David Collins, with James Arnold Taylor. Here's how it turned out.

We had several characters join us, from Vader and stormtroopers, to an Imperial officer and a Jedi, and R2 joined up with Gordon Tarpley as C-3PO, whom Michael McMaster helped.

Since I'm lazy, I'll just present a hodge-podge of behind-the-scenes pics with minimal commentary.

Haha, R2 is too short, so we put him on boxes. Needless to say I locked his feet down by flipping the switch that powers-off the speed controller.

It was a long night, but a fun one. Who knows, maybe R2 will be back again one day.

Wedding Reception

Tonight R2 was a guest at America Young's wedding reception. America is a talented actress and producer who attends the Breakfast with Santa event that I've brought R2 out to the last few years.

I arrived around 5:10pm and got R2 ready for his entrance, complete with bowtie.

The plan was to have America escort R2 out onto the dance floor as a big surprise guest. Even her groom Dove didn't know R2 would be there.

The DJ announced R2, and everyone went wild. R2 did some dancing and had fun on the dance floor with the happy couple and the guests.

After he was done dancing, I stationed R2 near the dessert table for photo ops.

We weren't too far from the wedding cake. I managed to resist pawing it.

A little while later, the bride and groom cut the cake, and we wrapped up our visit.

Wedding are always fun and special occasions, I'm glad I was able to help out just a little bit with this one.
