Nah moet je niet willen hoor, ik ben een paar keer op Amerikaanse filmsets geweest.
Leuk voor de ervaring van dat moment maar haalt je wel uit de film als je hem daadwerkelijk kijkt, zou hier zonde van de ervaring zijn schat ik zo in.
Grappig, toevallig sluit een recente discussie op Reddit
hier ook op aan.

I work in the film industry and can assure you that even on small productions security and locations wouldn’t let you anywhere near the actual set. On something this large you probably wouldn’t even get within a block of the actual set before someone would be yelling at you to get away, let alone visit it. Large productions like this are desperate to keep any potential spoilers under wraps, and that includes seemingly small things like costumes or makeup, so they won’t let people with cameras close if it can be avoided in any way.
I don’t mean that to be rude, just to let you know. The chances of you seeing anything while they are actively filming are very slim unless they were to be filming something in the street where you actually lived and could watch from your window.
Thank you so much for saying this. I'm a film worker as well. In addition to all the reasons you've listed, there's also the fact that (as magical as it seems) at the end of the day a film set is a workplace. There's heavy machinery, expensive equipment moving to and fro, and hundreds of technicians and specialists trying to do their jobs to create the entertainment we all crave. I've had "Looky Loos" step right in front of moving 45 ton Boom Lifts just because they absolutely had to know what I was up to and if anyone famous was around.
You wouldn't stroll into a construction site because you're curious about the materials being used, or be allowed to walk through the kitchen of your favourite steak house because you just gotta see the head chef work his magic. A film set isn't a tourist spot.
Keep your distance, let us work, and we can all enjoy the finished product together. I think this is going to be a good one.
Going to piggyback on this quickly, again, as a crew member in the industry. Please, just leave it alone while we’re filming. Our days are ludicrously long as it is, and the last thing we need is anything making the day longer. For reference, the shortest day I worked on set this week was 13 hours. The longest was 17. All anyone on set wants is for things to go smoothly so we can get home and go the fuck to sleep sooner rather than later because call is probably going to be the asscrack of dawn the next day. If we have randoms showing up and poking around everything goes on lockdown until they’re gone and all you’re doing is wasting sunlight/night time and adding to what is already, inevitably, a long day of shooting.
Furthermore, we on set are Covid tested, at minimum, twice a week. People outside the industry generally aren’t. We literally have different “zones” of access for people based on how close they’re allowed to get to cast, and people get tested more often depending on whether they need to take masks off or get close to people who do. If anyone really important on set were to catch Covid from your little bit of poking around that can potentially shut us down for weeks depending on how much it spreads and/or who gets it.
As much as I understand your excitement, please remember that this is a job for everyone on set and much like you wouldn’t want people showing up at your workplace taking pictures or lurking around, neither do we. Be excited that something this cool is filming in your area, and be excited if you recognize something when the show actually airs. But please don’t go out of your way to try to get close to it, especially when you’re probably just going to be disappointed by the experience when all that happens is security starts screaming at you to go away.
It is better to be roughly right, than precisely wrong.
