Nostalgia – “Make Your Move” Two Years Ago Today

Two years ago today, at roughly 1:20 in the morning, the cast and crew of the then named movie, Cobu 3D, finished filming. It was bittersweet. Three months of intense filming had come to an end. The long days, and the long nights were over, but so was the daily camaraderie that this crew enjoyed together. It was now time for them to return home, to new projects, and to await the release of this film, now called Make Your Move.

On the last day of filming, Rich Ting (Oku) talked about filming a final car scene.
“Last day filming #Cobu3D. Can’t believe the end is here. Got an exciting car scene 2 shoot tonight. Wish us luck!” (June 24, 2011 8:34:41 AM PDT)

Later that day he tweeted:
“COBU 3D officially wrapped!!! Love the entire cast n crew! Thank u from the bottom of my heart! Gnite!”
(June 25, 2011 1:53:42 AM PDT).

Prior to the final wrap, Leading man, Derek Hough (Donny) had been particularly busy, doing interviews, filming the infamous kissing scene with BoA, and the scenes of him reuniting with his ‘brother’ Nick. Right after the wrap, he signed autographs for fans who had watched the kissing scene of him and BoA.

The photo below was taken in Toronto on June 23, 2011 by a fan viewing across the street. This was part of the scene of Donny and Aya walking together towards Aya’s home.
