The Shawshank Redemption – Exploring The FILMING LOCATIONS

Published by Darron Toy on



welcome everyone I'm in Ohio today going to show you the filming locations for one of my favorite movies and a huge inspiration in my life the Shawshank Redemption it comes down to a simple choice get busy living or get busy dying join me shall you right here is where the car was parked he would have stepped out spilling the bullets and the Bourbon bottle you know all the facts we have the accused at the scene of the crime we have footprints tire tracks bullets strewn on the ground which bear his fingerprints a broken bourbon bottle as he stepped out of the vehicle he would have walked towards us you can see these two trees in the very dark shadows of the shot and because the gun was never found I find it deciding Lee inconvenience by the power vested in me by the state of Maine I hereby order you to serve two life sentences back-to-back one for each of your victims something there was a massive helicopter shot but helicopter would have been swooping in here right across there was the bus full of inmates driving straight towards Shawshank shawshank right on the other side of this fence is where the bus full of prisoners at the very beginning would have been traveling down it's kind of grown over now of course the helicopter shot over the top of Shawshank Prison looking down or new prisoners I thought you eat will we save his first night in the joint Andy Dufresne cost me two packs of cigarettes he never made a sound creepy creepy shower room I sure hope Boggs doesn't show up and shower next to me there he is Hey I like that it certainly was I'm afraid I don't have her down the front of my pants right now sorry to say but I'll get her budget stretched thin as it is I say perhaps I could write the state Senate and request funds directly from them far as they're concerned only three ways to spend the taxpayers hard-earned when it comes to prisons more walls more bars more guys they've actually torn down a lot of the buildings that were on that side brooks would have walked right towards us you can see those stairs he walked right about here in a car almost hit him Brooks was here the parole board got me into this halfway house called the brewer you can actually still see the nail in the wall the photo is hanging sometimes after work I go to the park and feed the birds I keep thinking Jake might just show up and say hello but he never does I hope wherever he is he's doing okay and making new friends I'm tired of being afraid all the time I've decided not to stay I have no idea to this day with those two Italian ladies were singing about truth is I don't want to know some things are best left unsaid it was like some beautiful bird flapped into our travel cage and made those walls dissolve away and for the briefest of moments every last man at Shawshank felt free it pissed the warden off something awful there's something inside that they can't get to that they can't touch it's yours I'm talking about hope no free ride but rather a genuine progressive advance in corrections and rehabilitation there's the warden's office right there I'm in solitary confinement right now or am I being obtuse I was in the path of the tornado didn't expect that the storm would last as long as they actually have the original prop that handy crawled through 500 yards that's the length of five football fields just shy of half a mile he would have dumped out of the pipe way away from the prison it would have been from this angle you can see the prison way down there this bridge right here is new right around this area is where Andy Dufresne would have popped out and ran through there they would have cleared all that out obviously part of the tube coming out of the ground right in there freedom pulling a fast one on the warden you would have walked right through that Bank door the double doors are still here the camera would have been facing this way you would have seen both these doors open and close the feet would have walked that way a man nobody ever laid eyes on before strolled into the Maine National Bank look at that the bank safe is still there you can see that Bank safe directly behind the bank manager here's your cashier's check sir will there be anything else please did you add this to your outgoing mail I'd be happy to Byron Hadley you check this out you can actually still see the screw where the photograph was hanging and of course Morgan Freeman would have been sitting right there to me it's just a made-up word young fellows like yourself gonna wear a suit and the time have a job you would have gone right over to this window to look at the handguns and the compasses luckily he bought the compass he would have been standing right here and behind him is this alleyway now if you look closely you'll see him standing here all I do anymore is think of ways to break my parole only one thing stops me I promise I made two handy coming right over the hill in the truck you hope is a good thing maybe the best of things and no good thing ever does this is where Morgan Freeman bought his bus ticket you could see this building in the background there was a few people in front of the window on that side Oh guilty of committing a crime a roll violation the camera would have been facing out you could actually see this sign course I doubt they'll toss up in a roadblocks for that not one old crook like me for handgun Texas please I find I'm so excited I can barely sit still a whole thought in my head I think is the excitement on your free man can feel a free man at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain get busy living or get busy dyin that's goddamn right
