Here is a lesson for you, carry your camera at all times you never know when you will run in to Spartans!

I went out to the island on Tuesday evening to shoot a Sun shot for this month's photographic assignment (see my previous post for that photo) and I came across a movie crew busy filming this scene. It was almost sundown so I only got a few shots before they called it quits and these guys walked off the best of friends.

I found out on Friday evening when I took some photos to the Visitor Center's Gift Shop the details of what was being filmed. They had moved the filming to another location on the island so I didn't get any more shots but the movie is a National Lampoon production and it is a spoof on the Greek/Roman/Troy epics.

Here is what I found on line about the movie.

National Lampoon's 301: The Legend of Awesomest Maximus Wallace Leonidas

Summary:
The sword-and-sandal Hollywood blockbusters of yore get thrown on their ear in National Lampoon's 301: The Legend of Awesomest Maximus Wallace Leonidas, a spoof featuring Entourage's Kevin Dillon as the titular character who blunders his way through Spartan history.
