It all started in June 2013. We set out on a roadtrip across the UK, all the way up to Northern Wales and Scotland. We had planned a route full of filming locations and even some historical sites connected to the Arthurian legend. The first movie stop of our trip, however, was the stunning Barafundle Bay in Pembrokeshire, Wales. Thanks to Tiia’s obsession with Benedict Cumberbatch and one of his most heartbreaking performances, we needed to go where the guys on Third Star went.
If you ever see the movie, you’ll understand why.
That’s where we took our first ever sceneframing photo. There was sunshine, there were heavy reflections and we were total amateurs at this. So you can clearly see where we got the lines wrong and all… But it doesn’t really matter. This is basically what started our whole blog, got us on BuzzFeed and RadioTimes and brought on the amazing years of geeky travels.
That makes it a pretty meaningful photo and location.

Our advent calendar will feature movie & TV sceneframes and short stories from filming locations we’ve visited during our Fangirl Quest years. You can follow the calendar by checking back in the Advent Calendar tag and check out all the movie locations in this handy map, updated as we go!
