The Office Set Visit 2010

B.J. Novak and Mindy Kaling getting a touch-up before filming the scene in the kitchen where Michael eats Meredith’s birthday cake in ‘The Chump.’

Ryan: It’s hard to live that way man. You gotta really not care what people think about you. I don’t know how you do it, Michael, I can’t be that cold.

The Office Set Visit 2010

As always, multiple takes are filmed of every scene. And every time Michael stuck his hand in Meredith’s cake and shoved a fistful of it in his mouth, a brand new cake was used. And they were real cakes! (More on that in a few pages.)


  1. this is awesome! i wish i could visit the set! but that won’t happen coz i’m only 17, at college, and live in Glasgow Scotland haha, oh well!

  2. Questions: 1st pic on page 14 – is that a pic of Steve & his Golden Globe on the ‘We Love You!’ sign? And is that Kevin Bacon in the lower right hand corner; if yes, just wondering why he’s there?

    S6 group pic: are you standing behind Paul Lieberstein?

  6. What an awesome compilation of pictures. Thank you, Tanster, and yes, I found you in the picture! And you so deserved to be there!

  7. i love seeing any and all behind the scenes pics! is the set actually inside the building that we see as the dunder mifflin building/parking lot, or is it at a different location?

  8. Thanks for the credit shout out! Love the rest of the pics. It was great meeting you.

    [from tanster: hi melissa, awesome to meet you too! hope your video turned out great. :) ]

  9. Yay! Thanks so much for sharing all this with us. It’s so interesting to see everything from a production standpoint. I love this show! Can’t wait for the new Season!

  10. Are the actors looking to a person (for example camera operator or director) while shooting talking heads or somewhere else?

    [from tanster: yes, the writer or director is usually sitting right next to the camera operator and the actor will talk directly to him or her while doing their talking head.]

  11. I loved the photos and wonderful video! That is the nicest, most talented, most down to earth cast and crew ever (of the best show ever!) Thanks so much for sharing your amazing visit with us!
