Great fun being in the Movie Super Van
24 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie Supervan was filmed in St Joseph, Missouri where I was living at the time. It started filming in October during the FREAK OUT truck In held at Old MacDonald's farm just North of St Joseph.

Many of our Pony Express Van Club members were in the Freak Out scenes and later furnished vans owned by the members in many follow up scenes such as the Van and Car chase on the streets of St Joseph.

My van was in several scenes and I also had several 'walk on' roles in the movie. It was great fun to be treated as a member of the cast and enjoying plenty of free beer and great food at the lunch breaks.

The Premier of the movie was held at a theater in St Joseph with George Barris, designer of the Super Van present for the festivities.

Later I made a web page of my photos and several clips from the movie.. You can check that out searching for the name Super Van the Movie online.
