Here is a link to the video for those viewing on a mobile device: http://youtu.be/KVu3gS7iJu4 I noticed 0:53, 1:51, and 2:06. Looks like the house and filming location that was on Rt 126, just southest of Yorkville. I drove past it all the time when they were filming. They tore it down when they were finished.

I was there on one of the the nights of the filming also on RT 126. They were shooting at night with a mega amount of quartz lighting. I tried to get on the set (using my radio controlled electric planes in my trunk as an excuse as a prop man) and was stopped by security in 12 steps :)

The school is Plano Centennial. The principal played the janitor. They deleted the movie clips shot in my bedroom with Superman and I. They'd have to change the rating of the movie. Meeeeeeeeowwwwwww!!! Haaha !
