Where Outlaw King Filmed In ScotlandThe 2018 Netflix movie Outlaw King, with Chris Pine as Robert the Bruce, began filming in August 2017. It filmed all over Scotland, and England as well, with over 45 locations being used to make the film. Here's a complete rundown of the locations:   Linlithgow Palace reopened on September 1, 2017 after being closed for five days of filming at the West Lothian palace. St Michael’s Parish Church was shut down for filming at the same time.   Pine and actor James Cosmo were spotted filming on the grounds of Craigmillar Castle in Edinburgh on September 1.   Dunfermline Abbey, Robert the Bruce's real final resting place, was used as a filming location on September 19.  The Abbey bells were silenced and the nave, nearby car parks and the entire St Catherine’s Wynd road were closed in anticipation of the film's crew.   On October 2, the film crew, accompanied by teams or horses and medieval armor, was spotted outside Glasgow Cathedral.   The Loudon Productions team built a medieval village around Mugdock Castle in East Dunbartonshire near Glasgow for filming in October; the crew's staff included a master thatcher for utmost authenticity. A stable area for 50 horses was included in the setup for battle scenes that were being filmed in Mugdock Country Park. The crew was a bit chilly filming in the October air at Inverbeg in Loch Lomond.   In November, the University of Glasgow was turned into a medieval banquet hall for filming.   At the end of November, the crew was filming an actress dangling in an iron cage over the battlements at Blackness Castle in West Lothian.   Seacliff Beach was used as a filming location for horses and their riders running along the beach.   Director David Mackenzie said of filming in Scotland: “I am so happy to have the opportunity to dig deep into the story of Robert the Bruce and to discover some of the truths that often get obscured by legend. This is my sixth feature film shot in Scotland and autumn is my favourite time of year to shoot so I am excited to bring this film to light in the beautiful Scottish elements – come rain, shine, storm or snow."   Other filming locations include Borthwick Castle, Doune Castle, Stirling, Talisker and Coral Beach, Isle of Skye, and Glencoe and in Northumberland, England: Tweedmouth and Berwick-upon-Tweed hosted the crew where Berwick Quayside played the Port of Glasgow, and the town's Old Bridge (Berwick Bridge) was used as London Bridge. Interiors for the film were shot at Dunfermline in Fife.   Photo (cover image) by Magnus Hagdorn is licensed under CC BY 2.0 Photo (inset image) by Geo is licensed under CC BY 2.0   Explore our maps and tags to find the most interesting TV and movie locations, unique architecture and historical sites!  Got a location to add to the LokaGraph map?

Where The Ballad of Buster Scruggs FilmedThe Ballad of Buster Scruggs, a western anthology film by the Coen brothers, was filmed in the parts of New Mexico and the Nebraska Panhandles.   Casting calls went out for "ordinary" Nebraskans to appear as extras. The casting call took place at Scottsbluff’s Midwest Theater, not far from where most of the Nebraska scenes were filmed.   The films' production shot in the “wide-open ranch country in Sioux County,” according to the Omaha World Herald.  The paper also reports that “a few scenes were shot along the North Platte River, west of town.”   Starr Lehl, Scottsbluff's economic director, says, “The most exciting part of this whole thing was when the Coen brothers (first came to the area). We went to this ranch in Sioux County, and they both stepped out of the car and did a 360, and said, ‘Wow, this is exactly what we’re looking for.’ Right then, I knew they were coming. I just kind of got the chills. This is big, this is really big.”   The ranch she spoke of was FX Bar Ranch, north of Scottsbluff and Sioux counties in Nebraska. The Nebraska scenes were filmed for the miniseries’s sixth and final episode.   Some filming also took place in Santa Fe and Alburqueque, New Mexico. The state is no stranger to the directors, as it’s where the Coen brothers also filmed No Country for Old Men and True Grit.   A casting call in July 2017 looked for extras to report to Eaves Ranch south of Santa Fe.   It also filmed at the Stagecoach Foundation production headquarters in Santa Fe.     Photo (cover image) by Don Henise is licensed under CC BY 2.0 Photo (inset image) by Shelly Prevost is licensed under CC BY 2.0   Know of any other  Ballad of Buster Scruggs locations?

JR on Houston Wall, at PACE Gallery, on Cover of Time Magazine with “Guns In America”On a day in the United States with yet another mass shooting, this one at a synagogue in Pittsburg, JR has introduced a new massive artwork that talks about guns in America, a seemingly intractable, unsolvable issue that makes the country rank as one of the most violent year after year. JR x Time Guns In America. Pace Prints. New York City. (photo © Jaime Rojo) “It’s a metaphor of what’s happening in the US,” says photographer, filmmaker, Street Artist, and social commentator JR, who has just installed a new mural on the Houston Wall in New York City on a sunny Friday where hundreds of curious New Yorkers stop and examine the new artwork while heavy trucks, honking cars, and periodic police and fire alarms whiz by. The night before at Pace Gallery in Chelsea the conservatively stylish French art phenom hosted an unveiling of the same image, rather a composited video of 245 separately shot moving images, projected across a huge wall in the space for guests to contemplate. A masterstroke of art and sociology, “The Gun Chronicles: A Story of America” presents opinions and perspectives from Americans across the range – hunters, victims, law officers, medical professionals, religious leaders, politicians, activists, surviving family members. JR x Time Guns In America (photo © Jaime Rojo) As we gaze at the quietly glowing and slowly moving images, we comment to the artist that it has a strangely calming and hypnotic quality, considering the range of deep feelings and emotions that the topic of gun violence engenders throughout the country, including many of these subjects. He tells us that he didn’t necessarily know the individual stories of everyone he was filming at the time of the sessions, but “I was aware of the emotions that were happening in many of the subjects. They were quite strong.” By providing this very thorough collection of voices to be heard inside of one project, the artist enables viewers to truly countenance the complexity of a wrenching topic that much of the talking-head media flatly reduce to its simplest polarity. He walks on the sidewalk and rides in the lift carefully scanning the faces of the subjects and talks with the handful of them who have travelled here with him to watch the installation. In a way, JR is doing the job that many have been unsuccessful at; contemplating the vast grey area and finding common ground. JR x Time Guns In America. Pace Prints. New York City. (photo © Jaime Rojo) BSA: When you went into the project did you have one idea of the issue, but after completing it something perhaps changed in your mind about it? Was there something voiced by others that helped you understand how volatile the issue is? JR: I think that when I got into this project I knew very little about the issue except what I heard in the media and it was really hard for me to understand, being French. To see how little kids could have access to such firearms and to see that such drama can happen across the country. So I really went naively trying to understand from every angle, every perspective, trying to learn from the people’s narrative, from the people’s story, and to hear what they have to say. And it is interesting because you find a lot of common ground between people. There is fear, fear of the other, what people might say about them or about their beliefs and actually what I realized when you listen to a lot of the stories was that a lot of people would agree on a common ground that certain people should not have access to certain firearms and they would almost all agree to a certain regulation. It’s just that that conversation is not really happening. So I hope that this mural can be one part of starting that conversation between people. JR x Time Guns In America. Houston / Bowery Wall.

The voices are resolute, halting, tender, defiant, wisened, sobbing, proud. JR x Time Guns In America. Houston / Bowery Wall. New York City. (photo © Jaime Rojo) The editor of the magazine Edward Felsenthal, recalls on the website that the cover of the magazine in June of 1968 also featured a contemporary artist for that time, Roy Lichtenstein, who “marked a series of heart-breaking assassinations” with his artwork on the cover with the title “The Gun in America.” The artwork now hangs in the National Portrait Gallery and is as relevant 50 years later as the day it was published, with the new pluralic title of “Guns in America” today possibly referring to the measureless proliferance of weapons in the US over the intervening five decades, the $13.5 billion dollar revenue of guns and ammunition sold annually and the 263,223 full-time jobs related to the firearm industry. Guns are America. “I shoot competitively all over the country… , says Rob Vadasz, 44, a firearm is as engrained in our culture as almost any other part of the American story and it’s not something that can be turned off,” says a stern looking white man with short hair who is listed on the website as an agent for the U.S. Border Patrol in Tampa, Florida.

It is a very difficult subject to talk about. It’s a night that I will never forget.” Michael Foreman, 65 Trauma surgeon / Dallas, Texas “I deal with it professionally, taking care of victims of gunshot violence...

It doesn't matter if a 250 pound man is trying to kick in my door and eventually does, I have a way to defend myself. I don't have to be a victim, and I do not have to get raped, and I do not have to get murdered, I do not have to get beat up. I don't want that on anybody so I really want everybody to know how to protect themselves. JR x Time Guns In America. Houston / Bowery Wall. New York City.

One of those being feminism and women empowerment, and in my opinion nothing is more empowering, or nothing screams feminism like a woman being capable and able to take care of herself and protect herself and her family.

(photo © Jaime Rojo) Antong Lucky from Dallas, Texas stands in front of the JR mural on Houston Street: Once I got out of prison I began a war to end the cycle of gangs and guns in our community. I wanted people to understand that we got a lot of stuff in common than we do against each other and that we needed to work together. A lot of times in this culture you can never find the common thread, the common cause because we are so busy screaming our point and trying to be right. I wanted to make sure that for me and for my kind in order to be able to find the right solutions you have to be able to listen, you have to be able to talk and you have to be able to find a common ground and agree on a common ground.

Rosemary Essential Oil Uses and BenefitsI know this may sound strange but I love diffusing Rosemary Essential Oil in my car!   This helps me keep my focus and for me, driving long distances allows me to process my thoughts. I know hearing this may sound strange from someone who lives in the horrendous traffic in Los Angeles but it’s true! For me, driving isn’t stressful. I actually look forward to driving long distances because I feel like I can have some quiet time in my car without my phone and texting and emails. Diffusing Rosemary Oil helps stimulate my senses, and therefore just by breathing it in I feel clearer to concentrate. Historically, Rosemary was once thought to be an aid for poor digestion, migraines, joint disorders, and muscle aches. It originates from the Mediterranean regions and was used to ceremoniously remember ancestors of certain cultures. It was also known to protect against the plague. My parents diffuse Rosemary Essential Oil to help assist memory functions. As we age, our memory can get a bit foggy. Rosemary essential oil is known to help stimulate memory, so my parents add about 10 to 12 drops of GuruNanda Rosemary Essential Oil to their diffuser and keep it running in their living room throughout the afternoon. Several Studies have found Rosemary Essential Oil to produced a significant improvement in performance quality of memory and secondary memory factors in healthy adults. It also helped my parents remain more alert. For the full benefits of rosemary essential oil: diffuse the oil through your room, inhale directly from the bottle, or rub over your temples. Using Rosemary Essential Oil In Your Daily Routine: What are your go-to remedies during cold and flu season? Rosemary has been used medically for centuries as an antiseptic, an aid in digestive and respiratory health, and in skincare. Regular use can stimulate the activity of antioxidants which aid in the fight of infection and disease and will help to boost your immune system. It can be used singularly, or as an additive to GuruNanda Carrier Oil and other aromatherapy oils for increased bacteria fighting properties. Materials Needed for  DIY Recipe: Rosemary Essential Oil Distilled Water Empty Spray Bottle Usage: For Respiratory Issues: Add 15 drops of rosemary essential oil to a bowl of steaming hot water.
