At The Plage Xanadu Hotel. Let's make movies! The Rum Diary 17-April-2009

For those looking for the Hotel La Plage Xanadu, you found it here. You will not find it any place else on the internet. You will not find it in Puerto Rico or any other city in the world.

 

It is because of your search and the many similar searches in the last three years that prompted me to post these photos on Flickr.

 

Like the internet searchers trying to find 'Isabela Sky', www.flickr.com/photos/sheldn/3997656833 you found my Flickr photostream in the hope of finding something a bit different from the list of billions of possible matches. I appreciate that you stopped by. I hope you stay and look around. For photos taken during the making of the movie, see my Flickr Set 'The Rum Diary' www.flickr.com/photos/sheldn/sets/72157630158540234/

 

These photos were taken at the Hilton Caribe San Juan Puerto Rico on 17-April-2009. A number of scenes were shot at the Hilton Caribe and a number made the movie including the Union Carbide party and the paddle boat at night scenes. Shooting started at 9:00pm and went into the early hours of the morning.

Technical notes and disclaimers

- Photos were shot using a Nikon Cool Pix camera.

- Pictures were taken from a distance. Digital zoom was used.

- There were 200 regular hotel guests in the crowd watching the making of the movie making it a challenge to take pictures.
