The quick way to describe Fangirl Quest would be, “2000 miles, three Finnish girls, one tiny car, loads of narrow roads,” and tons of pictures from iconic geek film/TV show locations — with a twist.
The long and amazing version would be much more fun to read. According to their site, Tiia and Satu wanted to take a road trip to see filming locations for some of their favorite shows to take some pictures, like any tourist would. Then, they decided to turn it up to 11 by also using their tablets and phones with stills from said shows, shot in said locations, to do what they call “screenframing.”
“Like giving it a modern kick,” as they say on their site.
Three Finnish girls, one tiny car, 2,000 miles and loads and loads of narrow roads later…
“Screenframing” is a quite clever; instead of saying “Blah blah blah was filmed here, this is the part where…” these ladies just grabbed a still from the scene, put it on the tablet, held up said tablet in frame and voila: instant recognition of scene/show/film! I love what these ladies have done, as it gives the location so much more perspective. The care that they give each shot — with their UK trip garnering 5,000 pictures to choose from — lets the fans who may not ever be able to visit these locations have a taste of what it’s like, along with some happiness.
If you come to the end of their entire slideshow, don’t despair! Fangirl Quest recently crowdfunded a 7,500 mile road trip and drove from Vancouver to New York, screenframing all the way!

To 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness…
