A Visit To Jaws 3D Set

By Tisha Shelden (as told to Lonna Poland)

Ed note: One of our members, Tisha Shelden, who lives near Orlando, Florida where Jaws 3D was filming, was able to spend some time on the movie set.  She has consented to share her adventures with the club.  Thanks, Tisha

Arriving on the set at 6:00 am, I was impressed at how incredibly cheerful and friendly everyone was.  Everyone said hello to Simon and cast and crew alike seemed to like him. (more…)

More Mayhem – Danger on the “JAWS ” Set

It seems that Simon faces mayhem no matter where he goes.  Recently, while filming Jaws-3D in Orlando, FL, he had a slight mishap.  Simon’s character, Philip Fitzroyce, is very much the daredevil photographer.  He seems to thrive on thinking up dangerous ways to get the required shots and camera angles, often using very dangerous and acrobatic methods.  Simon, in character as Philip, had planned an unique way to photograph Shamu the killer whale.  Shamu would be leaping high out of the water, while at the same time allowing his trainer to jump off a platform onto his nose, whale and trainer completing the dive together.  With a rope tied around him for safety, Simon/Philip planned to get the shot by coming up behind the trainer on the platform and then leaning way over the edge, while his partner, Jack, (P.H. Morairty) pulled the rope taut to keep him from falling over.  (The best laid plans of mice and men!)  (more…)

Riddle – Still a Riddle

RIDDLE OF THE SANDS, a movie Simon filmed a few years ago with Micheal York and Jenny Agutter, was slated for a January ’83 release in the United States.  Due to perplexing delays in editing and other procedures, RIDDLE is still on the shelf, in spite of the fact that there are fans anxiously waiting to see it.  Once these problems are ironed out, Simon will be asked to do some promotional work for the film.  We can only hope, for his sake, that promotions for RIDDLE, MANIMAL and JAWS don’t all hit at the same time. (Eeny, Meeny, Miney, Mo!)
