Today marked the end of our final week of prep before the holidays – and despite the fact that it wasn’t all that busy (it WILL get busier), I’m exhausted. Some of that may be attributable to the last mad dash to get pink drafts of episodes #101 and #102, and production whites of #107, #108 and #109 out before the production offices close. Or the late night meet and greet dinner and drinks. But I mainly blame that early Thursday morning location survey that saw me getting up at 5:45 a.m. so that I could catch the 7:00 a.m. tour bus to Waterloo and Hamilton.
I mean, it was still dark outside when we left the production offices. Dark!
Oh, it may not mean all that much to you now but, when the episodes air, you’ll refer back to this blog entry, and this particular picture, and say: “Hey! This was them scouting the location for that initial confrontation with the Ferrous Corp. soldiers!”
“And this is the area where our crew first encounters the miners.”
“And…well…I don’t remember this room.” Well, that’s because we’re not using it on this particular shoot – but I snapped a pic anyway because I found it exceptionally creepy. Maybe we’ll come back when we film that horror movie.
The reactor room – scene of the final showdown – and our Butch and Sundance moment.
I’m ready to do my imitation of Lulu doing an imitation of a boneless ham.
