We, Martin Reibe and Marcus Machoy, will present the topic of film tourism and setjetting during our lecture Setjetting, the better holiday. This involves holidays that include visits to film and serial locations. In our specific case, we are talking about two longer trips to the USA, which included visiting different locations of our favorite movies and series.
The lecture will be a slide show with pictures we took on location at the film locations. The presentation is a mix of a film location quiz, coupled with tips on how to visit the film locations (do’s and don’ts), how to prepare for the trip and the best stories we have experienced. We move mainly in the film genres – sci-fi, action, horror and the periodical classification 80’s until today.
To the spatial classification – on our two journeys we visited the west coast of the USA with the greater Los Angeles area and the east coast of the USA with the greater Atlanta area – here, of course, primarily The Walking Dead and Stranger Things.
