Doomsday pilot, week 2

Week 2 of a 17 day shoot on the ABC television pilot "Doomsday." Another early start, but a great view of downtown Vancouver

still awesome even in the daylight
We were in Gastown today, shooting on the street and inside on of the buildings.

This pilot is set in many cities in the United States, today Washington, D.C.

Waiting for cast to arrive at Vancouver International airport.
Later in the week we were on Mitchell Island, used mainly for industry. Behind our set I spotted this log boom on the Fraser River.

The scene was a construction site. I think something shady is going on, a helicopter lands, and people in a Porsche and a 400,000 dollar Bentley Suv await.

Later that day we went to a hanger at the airport South Terminal. They used this body of a helicopter for the scene. Set against a green screen, they can make the background look like whatever they need it to be.

I think the cast was having fun hanging out in there
Across the street a gorgeous sunset on the Fraser River.

The next day we took over the Starlight Casino in New Westminster for the first part of the day.

This show is on the road every day. Today we were back downtown Vancouver. Our base camp was back on familiar ground across from Science world, leftover from the World's Fair in 1986

We started the day at the iconic Marine building on the corner of Burrard and Hastings.

I love the way it stands out against all of the newer buildings.

Look up, look waaaayyyyyy up!

Later that day we went to British Properties in West Vancouver. The mansion we were shooting at was one of hundreds up there, OMG!
Cell phone camera cannot capture the awe of the view of downtown Vancouver.

we finished the week at an office building near Metrotown in Burnaby.

but because this show has no home, we had to move all the trucks later that day to a lot by the Milltown Marina on the border of Vancouver and Richmond. We will be shooting in the area tomorrow.

end of a long week random, my shoes all over, shot
