Outside of B.C. Place on the last day of filming for Electra Woman and Dyna Girl. Wow, 16 days of shooting done in the blink of a camera!

Looking east across False Creek in Vancouver, was the weather going to cooperate?

The work trucks parked across the street from Rogers Arena, home of the Vancouver Canucks

and behind B.C. place, home of the Vancouver Whitecaps soccer team, and the B.C. Lions football team.
Filming today,including this burnt out car was on the grounds outside of the Edgewater Casino. It is also know as the Plaza of Nations, from Vancouver's world fair, Expo 86. It was a festive time in Vancouver town, I remember some of it well, lol !

Now look at this, the two stars of Electra woman and Dyna girl hand made this key chain for me as a gift for my chauffeuring them around. Very sweet, it's campy, but I love it.

Looking east again, weather looks good.

The evening sets in, the burnt out car looks very ominous
Omg!, one of the superheroes left his glove in my vehicle. How will "Chlorophil"? ever fight crime without it.

A little blurry, this was not a police incident, just a bad day for the criminals, Electra Woman and Dyna girl are kicking butt!

The next day we moved our "circus" to the P.N.E. , underneath the old wooden rollercoaster

I bet a lot of people do not know there is a pond in the middle of the PNE

One of the building on site, I liked the way the sun was shining on this window
Then, the switch. To the untrained eye, you would not know this is a new day on a different movie, called Interrogation, a WWE movie featuring..............

The Edge, Adam Copeland, one of the legends of the wrestling world. What a great guy, there was some young fans that showed up on set, and he was gracious enough to go and talk to them.

Day 2, (for me), I missed the first week of shooting down at Crab Park in Vancouver, close to Canada Place, the convention center and the rest of downtown

A little down time for the director, Stephen Reynolds, who hails from Britain. I was privileged enough to drive him around on another movie last year called Lockdown,

Look up, look wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy up. Is that the new Trump Tower?

Nice light for a pic of the Port of Vancouver

Stop Harper, seeing a lot of these around Vancouver

I happened to be outside the window of the set, watching make-up putting the final touches on one of the actors. Hey, wait a minute, this is Canada, isn't it?
Doesn't the public know who we are? Taking over another busy street downtown, this time Hastings between Burrard and Thurlow

City lines

Our circus was close to the cruise ship terminal at Canada Place. This was the earliest docking of a cruise ship, a good sign for the tourism industry in Vancouver

We hire the Vancouver police to lock up the streets for our filming

I like the buildings of downtown

Another look up, later in the week, we moved to another empty building on Annacis Island. For two days we were underneath these behemoth electrical towers. Cannot be good.

Surprisingly enough these were growing very well

Lunchtime with my Teamster peeps!

I had to go to the director's hotel to grab his lap-top, he does have a pretty decent city view

Another duty for transport. The production manager shows me a pic on his phone of what he wants, then it's up to me to hit a Future Shop and get it.

The "Interrogation room " Notice the track around the table, and the camera cart that moved around the actors in the scene
Very busy day, almost 300 KM, just driving aound from the set to the hotel for the actors, to the circus to the production office

Better seen with the naked eye, I just liked the way the sun was shining off of this building.

This robin was quite curious to see what I was up to

I am on what they call a "low budget production" (although 2 mill sounds like a lot to me). We used drones (little remote controlled helicopters) to shoot our overhead shots, but the bigger production, "Arrow" used the real deal to film their scenes.

random downtown, from a long way away I saw these people fussing with someone

Love to know what the heck is going on here, nahhhhhh, maybe I don't.

hangin in alleys, that's how I roll ! End of one film, one more week to go on another, then.?
