I caught up with the cast of Arrow shooting some scenes in the first week of their schedule. There was a couple scenes I saw that day which included a little Olicity time, as well as the new Chief Of Police Quentin Lance talking to media while his daughter & Oliver looked on. But this isnt about those scenes.
There was a night shoot that day. I wasnt expecting to see much of it, and frankly, after seeing what my photos looked like (I kept a couple REALLY crappy ones in there so you get an idea what 85% of my night shots tend to be), I should have went home early.
I stuck it out and manage to catch very small glimpses of some scenes shot on the roof of the Plaza Of Nations that entailed the stunt team as well as cast members Stephen Amell dressed like Arrow, Caity Lotz dressed like Black Canary and Peter Stormare as the new Count Vertigo (whether any others were up there....who knows... thats all I saw from my limited vantage point).
The only undeniable things I can say for sure is, Count Vertigo and Arrow have a pretty detailed fight on the roof that saw their stunt people partake in. As well, some VERY close up shots of Stephen. Lastly a short scene of Black Canary (Lotz/her stunt person?) coming in and swinging her staff around at seemingly nothing.
From where I was, about 250 ft away and another 30 ft below, there was not a lot I could see, and with the exception of the rare time I saw both the actors and their doubles within my line of view, I could only assume who was doing which scenes 1/2 the time with the exception of the fight scene which clearly looked like the stunt team, and the close up which was clearly Stephen.
So, here is the 1st night shoot shots I got this year from Arrow. I didnt label the photos specific since theres not a lot of them I am certain who it is in the photos. Some are Stephen, Caity and Peter, some are Simon Burnett, Atlin Mitchell and the stunt man for Peter.
Arrow debuts Wednesday October 8, 2014 on The CW in the U.S. and on CTV in Canada.
