My Set Tour for Clifford The Big Red Dog Live Action Movie

By 6/29/2021 12:20:00 PM ,

Clifford The Big Red Dog is getting a live action version! To learn more about the upcoming film, I was invited to Gold Coast Studios for a set tour while the Clifford Movie was actually filming!

Note: This post is in partnership with Paramount Pictures, who invited me to the set tour and interviews. However, views expressed are always 100% my own.

Not only did I get a full tour, I also had the chance to meet and interview producer Jordan Kerner and cast Darby Camp (Emily), Jack Whitehall (Uncle Casey) and Izaac Wang (Owen Yu ). More about the interviews in later post closer to the films release.

In this post I want to tell you more about being on the set of Clifford The Big Red Dog Movie!

To start, the set was huge! There was about three different areas I had to walk through to get to each "location".

Getting that NYC Look

While walking from area to area, I got a peek at some of the backgrounds. Since New York City locations are featured throughout the film, some of the backgrounds were painted and decorated to match.

In one room, the "window" had a skyscraper view. It was so realistic.

Walking Around Emily’s Apartment

Over in the next section, we went onto the set and was able to walk around in Emily’s Apartment. The set had actual rooms which were fully decorated like a real home.

There was a kitchen, living room, bedroom and sorta bathroom. Seems they were still working on that area right?

Actually the room needed to be incomplete like that so the camera crew can get inside while filming.

And as for why Emily's bed is broken and messy....there's a fun scene in the movie that will show you why. Sorry I can't tell.

While it would've been nice to walk around the set all day and watch scenes being filmed, we had to let the cast and crew get back to work so they can finish the film.

We all want to see Clifford The Big Red Dog movie in theaters September 17, 2021!


Based on the beloved Scholastic book character, Clifford will teach the world how to love big!

When middle-schooler Emily Elizabeth (Darby Camp) meets a magical animal rescuer (John Cleese) who gifts her a little, red puppy, she never anticipated waking up to find a giant ten-foot hound in her small New York City apartment.

While her single mom (Sienna Guillory) is away for business, Emily and her fun but impulsive uncle Casey (Jack Whitehall) set out on an adventure that will keep you on the edge-of-your-seat as our heroes take a bite out of the Big Apple.

Starring: Jack Whitehall, Darby Camp, Tony Hale, Sienna Guillory, David Alan Grier, Russell Wong and John Cleese
