    Hey Mos Albians!
    Jess here....I just wanted to pass this on to you guys.....I just got it yesterday sorry for the short notice. I meant to post this last night, but it was very late by the time I got out of work (wrapping on "In Plain Sight"). I did pass this info on to Joseph and Ken and hopefully it is getting passed on from them as well.

    The Set Dec Department has contacted me as well and they are looking for people with Sci Fi collectibles that could be rented for the big "Comic-con" scene which will be filmed at the ABQ Convention Center. They want to simulate vendors booths at the convention.

    If you have stuff to rent I can get you the number to contact the Set Dec dept. Shoot me a email to

    So....perhaps you may want to be a extra in the film and rent out your sci fi goods for the feature film "Paul"

    Thanks so much for passing this information on. We are at 300 Washington SE, south of Central, unfortunately there is construction right at Central and Washington so it might be easier to come north on Washington from Zuni (where Lead and Coal meet)

    Hope it went well. I figured they wouldn't shoot in San Diego. Paul is a tribute to Spielberg's alien movies with other references thrown in, and has a great Spielberg cameo with Seth Rogen (voices only). You can probably guess the road trip starts in Nevada and ends in Wyoming.
