The “CBGB” film shoot in Savannah in 50 tweets

CBGB has finished principal photography, and it appears that the filming has left Savannah’s public stage.

As many of you know already, I’ve been following the shoot pretty closely, and I’ve been especially interested in the effect of Twitter and other social media in allowing fans and stars to engage each other.

Twitter posts are generally public, and there’s an easy feature to embed them in websites. So I’ve selected here a more or less chronological collection of entertaining Tweets that chronicle the movie shoot.

The biggest flurry of public excitement was during Rupert Grint’s time here playing Cheetah Chrome of The Dead Boys, but you’ll see more direct engagement with the city from the movie’s stars, including Ashley Greene as Lisa Kristal, Malin Akerman as Debbie Harry, Stana Katic as Genya Ravan, Ryan Hurst as Mad Mountain, Joel David Moore as Joey Ramone, Freddy Rodriguez as Idaho, Donal Logue as Merv Ferguson, Richard de Klerk as Taxi, Peter Vack as Legs McNeil, Mickey Sumner as Patti Smith, Julian Acosta as Johnny Ramone, Steven Schub as DeeDee Ramone, and Katherine DuBois as Genya’s friend. There’s also a great pic of Taylor Hawkins at The Jinx.
