Location Scouting for FATAKRA

Factory2

SomewhereTexasStopsignFactory3I’m currently production designing for my good friend, Soham Mehta, on his film FATAKRA. We’ve been location scouting mostly in the outlying areas southeast of Austin which I’ve discovered are beautfiul this time of year. Scouting in 103 degree weather does have some benefits, apparently.

The factory is this amazing peanut processing plant in Giddings, Texas where we’ll be doing the bulk of our shooting. Giddings is small Texas town surrounded by farmland that benefited from an oil boom in the 1980s but is now pretty sleepy. It also has the widest streets I’ve seen in Texas. If you pass through, stop by Mel’s Diner (not from the 70s sitcom Alice) and have a slice of their coconut pie… amazing!
