Frequency, one more to go!

Wow, working on the last episode of Frequency for season one. Seems like forever ago since we started back in July.
One of the very few clear starts to our week. It rained 25 days in November alone! This was downtown Vancouver by False Creek.

My usual route into downtown, the Cambie Street bridge

back at the studio, this bedroom set is ready for later in the week action....
behind the scenes, takes a lot to power up these sets.

They weren't filming on this sound stage tonight, so I was free to roam around.

back downtown Vancouver, the New York Police Department, circa 1996, is standing by.

Looking back through our base camp to Science world.
Another filming day, another visit to Chinatown.

as I have said before, the shooting day turns to night

They were filming on the roof of this building on Carrall Street.

a couple of blocks away from ground zero (the sad world of East Hastings St)
The things we saw tonight were alarming. (poverty, mental illness, mixed with drugs and alcohol).
One of the actors I was driving made the comment that it was probably the most depressing scene he had ever witnessed.
random, going home, get scalper tickets to the Vancouver Canucks/ Chicago Blackhawks hockey game, shot.

The Frequency ham radio call sign is pointing the way to another day at Riverview Hospital. (we bypass the condemned West Lawn building.)

uhhhh, imagine we are out in the woods, in the dark, filming again, this was out in Langley

One of my favourite shooting locations, Steveston!
I have filmed many times before, mostly on the ABC show Once Upon a Time, which is now in its 6th season. In the background you can see one of the buildings with the fictional "Storybrooke" sign on it.

Its nice to see a fishing community so close to Vancouver

The Gulf of Georgia Cannery in Steveston is a national historic site.

The main drag of Steveston/Storybrooke

switching gears completely, we filmed one day at an actual metal recycling yard in Surrey.

It was kind of interesting to watch the goings on. In the background, you can see the Pattullo Bridge, connecting Surrey to New Westminster, as well as the sky-train bridge crossing the Fraser River.
random, I thought was cool train car full of scrap, pic

It was interesting to watch the train and bridge traffic

the clouds over the Pattullo,  I'm sure there's a song in there somewhere
we finished off the week with another fraturday, my view of the work trucks at 3 a.m. Saturday morning.

well you can bet these guys weren't open at 4 a.m. when I dropped off the dry cleaning from the wardrobe department.
random web pics, this is a very good idea
who says cows aren't  smart?

young realist

I thought this was an incredible dumb idea, but my son said he saw this before and there is a ledge below. Its still dumb!

In the end I'm sure it is worth the effort

uber clever

uhhhhhhhh not cool dude.

clever, but cant see this turning heads in the dragons den


really? hope your insurance is paid up.
