OMG! George Clooney Supports Local Artists!
A month or so ago, a set designer working on the movie walked into Warehouse of Dinettes, one of the lucky-thirteen spots around town where Trotter keeps art-for-sale on the walls. Shortly afterward, the set designer paid a visit to Trotter's Creve Coeur studio. "She bought my book [of St. Louis landmarks]. I didn't give her one. I made her buy one! Not very good PR, I suppose, but it wasn't a week later that she came back," says Trotter, and scooped up a three-by-five-foot aerial shot of the Arch grounds for a cool $700.
Actually, the film crew is just renting the piece, which Trotter has been told will appear in the background of a scene at the airport. You know what that means. "Now that George Clooney has used it," says Trotter with more than a wee bit of glee, "I think I can sell the piece for a bit of a premium!"
|Who made 700 bucks off George Clooney? This guy!|
Decide for yourselves. And if anybody else has an, "I made 700 bucks off George Clooney!" tale to tell, the folks over here at The Daily RFT would love to hear it. Shoot me an e-mail and share.
|Lambert's so...old-school. Is that why Clooney's people chose to film here?|
