1 PicADay Project: Day 306
Many scenes of the 1998 film The Truman Show were shot in Seaside FL. The movie’s director Peter Weir was planning on building a movie set town for the movie when his wife, Wendy, happened to see Seaside featured in an architect’s magazine and thought it would be perfect for the film. The former superintendent of Okaloosa Schools, and now a member of the Florida Senate, state Senator Don Gaetz, was one of the original property owners of Seaside, and his personal cottage was utilized as the Burbanks’ house in the film.

This house is actually on the street from the Truman Show scene on which Truman (Jim Carey) is driving down fast to get away after finding out his life is a TV show.
