The Best "Supporting" Actor of 2011 as voted by you the fans was.. Mark Sheppard -Supernatural.
Our supporting actress & actor awards had a little different style to it than the mainstream supporting acting awards. Ours was based on appearances, not screen-time. This gave several characters who otherwise might get ignored for their roles, a chance to win for their work. The "King Of Hell" Crowley was around striking deals in 2011 & the actor portraying the sharp tongued demon, Mark Sheppard won this poll. It really is a credit to Mr. Sheppard's acting skills that he was up for 2 different acting awards, from 2 different shows.
Mark dominated the voting by the time it closed with over a 100 vote lead over another Supernatural troublemaker Sebastian Roche. Michael J. Fox from "The Good Wife" rounds out the top 3. Michael Cerveris "Fringe" finished 4th ahead of castmate Kevin Corrigan in 5th. Just 1 vote behind in 6th was "Once Upon A Time" star Lee Arenberg, Will Wheaton of "Eureka" was 7th, "Best guest star" winner Michael Rosenbaum was 8th for his work in "Breaking In", Ben Cotton "Hellcats" 9th narrowly ahead of Patrick Gilmore "The Killing" rounding out the finalists in 10th
This category might have had the most different finalists who had at 1 point had the lead. Besides the eventual winner, Michael J. Fox, Lee Arenberg, Michael Cerveris & Wil Wheaton all had temporary leads in this category early on.
Final vote results
Mark Sheppard "Supernatural" 715
Sebastian Roche "Supernatural" 576
Michael J. Fox "The Good Wife" 346
Michael Cerveris "Fringe" 275
Kevin Corrigan "Fringe" 239
Lee Arenberg "Once Upon A Time" 238
Wil Wheaton "Eureka" 214
Michael Rosenbaum "Breaking In" 157
Ben Cotton "Hellcats" 114
Patrick Gilmore "The Killing" 111
The Best "Supporting" Actress of 2011 as voted by you the fans was.. Julia Maxwell -Supernatural.
Our supporting actress & actor awards had a little different style to it than the mainstream supporting acting awards. Ours was based on appearances, not screen-time. This gave several characters who otherwise might get ignored for their roles, a chance to win for their work. Julia Maxwell as "Eve" on the last season of Supernatural was a little bit of a surprise to me, even as an SPN fan. As voting wound down, it seemed the SPN fans rallied behind many of their finalists, voting for anyone attached to the show. Maxwell was in a very close race with How I Met Your Mother challenger Jennifer Morrison for much of the voting, each leapfrogging the other several times. In the last 2 days, Ms. Maxwell was down by 10 votes, but the SPN fans rallied late in the voting to grab her a win.
Julia narrowly beat out runner up Jennifer Morrison from "How I Met Your Mother". Well back in 3rd was a tie between Jayne Atkinson "Criminal Minds" & Charlyne Yi "House. A similar battle for the final 2 spots was playing out till the last day in voting when "The Killing" star Kacey Rohl, who was last by 3 votes just 48 hrs earlier, pulled away on "Hellcats" Magda Apanowicz in the final day of voting.
This was 1 of the more interesting categories to me, as the high traffic volume I get on this site for Vancouver based shows really seemed to define the finalists. There was a finalist from a cancelled show, another finalist from a show whose only other finalist was another supporting acting category, and the winner was from a show, where her role was, to many fans, not overly relevant..and they all have ties to Vancouver. Add in the runner up is now on a Vancouver based show, and it really shows how my coverage of Vancouver based shows kind of defines the average viewers of my site.
This award also goes down this year as the NARROWEST margain of victory this year. 14 votes.
Final vote results
Julia Maxwell "Supernatural" 450
Jennifer Morrison "How I Met Your Mother" 436
Jayne Atkinson "Criminal Minds" 203
Charlyne Yi "House" 203
Kacey Rohl "The Killing" 170
Magda Apanowicz "Hellcats" 131
Now that 2011 has expired, it is time to look back at the year that was. I didnt travel too much this year, but that was ok, as elite names were roaming the streets of Vancouver throughout the year... now only if I had ran into some of them.
20 - Ellen Degeneres
I managed to get the talk show icon twice on her trip to Vancouver, including the 1st autograph I got in which I had to run 4 blocks to get after being given up to the second info on where she was. Few if any autographs I got this year took more energy out of me than that 1st 1 I got from her. Next day, she signed again and was happy to do it.
19 - Axl Rose
For a long time, I had heard nothing but horror stories about the lead singer for Guns N Roses. So I was not eager to go for him. However, this past time thru Vancouver, not only did the band actually play the show they came here to play, but Axl was even a willing signer. Pretty much anyone that went for him here got him.
18 - Simon Pegg
While here for Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol, Mr. Pegg was the most often seen of the films stars. Whether it was at the airport, his hotel or the movie theatre, the Hot Fuzz star signed whatever was asked more often than not.
17 - Henry Cavill
The new Superman has been very good here so far. Although he is strict about limiting his autograph to 1 per person each time you see him, he has still been terrific in the interactions people have had with him.
16 - Cast of Sanctuary
Never had a bad experience with this cast, this year was no different. Whether it was at the Leo Awards, the airport or a charity event, each member of the cast was exceptional.
15 - Cast of The Secret Circle
This cast could have made the top 10, if it werent for 1 exceptionally bitter & sour life hating senior cast member of the show. That exception aside...the rest of the cast has been terrific with us.
14- Matt Barr & Aly Michalka
I miss Hellcats. Not just because of the campy cheerleader drama storylines. But because 2 of the nicer celebs we have had in Vancouver in a long time left when the show did. While some other cast members were a lot less thrilled to interact with fans during the shows 1 year run, Matt & Aly were as accomodating & friendly as you can expect. Class acts.
13- Cast Of Supernatural
Much like Ms. Torv from Fringe, the cast of Supernatural, whether its Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Misha Collins, Jim Beaver or the recurring characters of the show have been quite good to us Vancouverites when we run into them. Long as the regulars respect the no asking them on set policy, they are more than receptive to signing and chatting with us away from set when we see them.
12 - Leo Awards
This years award ceremony for BC film industry was not as spectacular as past ones I had hounded. Much of that was because of an unexpected change of venue & the loss of 1 or 2 shows since last year. Still, a list of names came out that made the effort worthwhile.
11 - Amy Adams
I had heard that Ms. Adams was a very willing signer, but till I saw it for myself, I didnt understand just how good she was. She willingly signed for everyone till there was nothing left out there to sign. She did it too with a smile. Wish all movie stars could have that level of appreciation.
10 - Booboo Stewart, Myanna Buring, Julia Jones, Guri Weinberg
This past year, the final installment of the Twilight Saga series, Breaking Dawn 1 & 2 was filmed here. In the years prior, some of the bigger names in the film were at times, pretty decent signers. This year however, there was VERY FEW great interactions with the cast. The names above were the very few I can say were outstanding. Considering how massive the cast was, its sad you can count the great experiences on 1 hand. Not to say ALL the others were terrible, but that they didnt neccesarily stand out as great.
9- Cast Of Fringe
The cast of the hit FOX show Fringe is generally friendly (the occasional grumpy Mr. Noble encounter not withstanding) the true star from a fan interaction aspect is usually Anna Torv in past years. Despite seeing the regulars probably 100+ times combined over the shows run here, she still willingly signs for us, even at the absurd time of 5:30 AM. This season, Seth Gabel became a regular and skyrocketed up along side his Fringe co-star for terrific interactions. Joshua Jackson, Jasika Nicole & others are terrific as well.
8 - John Schneider
Although from an excitement standpoint, getting Mr. Schneider wasnt overly high for me (I was a Dukes of Hazzard fan..but not a massive fan), it was how wonderfully personable he was each & every time that won me over. My 1st interaction with him was 1 of the rare "I wasnt expecting that" situations where we were at the airport for persons unrelated, and saw a sign for him there. Knowing he was coming in for an episode eventually, we waited to see if it was him, it was. He happily signed then. Seeing him 2 more times after, he was just as gracious each time after, even at the Smallville wrap party, where some of the bigger stars were nothing short of rude, Mr. Schneider was 1 of the ones that made the fans waiting out there happy.
7 - Cast Of Once Upon A Time
Usually when new TV shows roll into town, odds are someone on the cast thinks more of themselves than they actually are. Not so with the cast of the new ABC fantasy drama Once Upon A Time. Each & every cast member I have met has been terrific with interacting with the fans & the pros. It was the overall attitude of this cast that made me hope for it to do well...I'm glad it is succeeding, this cast deserves it.
6- Sharlto Copley
The District 9 star is simply, awesome. How awesome is he with fans? After a flight that was the better part of a day, he stopped, chatted with fans at the airport, did photos with, and even cracked a few jokes. So awesome he did an autograph session for a local African import store "African Breese Imports" just because they asked...and at the autograph session, he had no qualms signing stacks for fans, collectors or dealers alike. One guy plopped down 30 or so photos, Sharlto went thru the entire stack, not once groaning about doing it and thanked the guy for coming afterwards.
5- Callum Blue
Being a huge Dead Like Me fan, I still get a bit excited when I meet any of the cast. This past year, I had a 4th (or 5th?) chance to meet Callum Blue. He was in town reprising his Smallville role as Zod. What made this meeting stand out more than others prior though was how it went down. I first learned he was going to be coming back..I then contacted him thru a site I knew he was a member of that I too was a member of. He replied back with when he was coming. I then tried, several times, but without success, to cross paths with him naturally. So I gave him another message & he told me what day he would be off. So I tried that day, called his room & he answered & came right down. In the pouring rain, he stood, signed, and chatted with my friend & I for several minutes.
4- Chloe Moretz
At 2010 TIFF I had Ms. Moretz high on my list of people to get...but she cancelled. This year however, Hit Girl was there, and made up for the year long wait. One of the best signers at TIFF. Even with volunteers telling her she had to go, she still kept signing.
3- TIFF - The 2011 Toronto International Film Festival
Individually, several of the events from Tiff could make this list, and a couple I did list individually. But for the mostpart, the entire event of the Toronto International Film Festival falls under 1 event for me. So thus, why it is going here. This years fest was certainly my most successful from a star power aspect, and total wise, it was close to my best. Stars like George Clooney, Megan Fox, Madonna, Nicolas Cage & Ryan Gosling made the event quite successful for me. It was the newer names I wasnt as faimiliar with before going that made some of the more cool moments though, like Chris Pratt, Ezra Miller, Dominic Monaghan and Sarah Bolger who all made me fans of them with the way they handled their attention.
2 - Tom Cruise
While I did get a disappointingly low total of 2 autographs from someone I was told "signs everything", a lot of that wasnt any fault of his or really mine either. It was just dumb luck. Still, I managed to get 2 from him, which was still 2 more than most hounds in Vancouver got from him. The 1 and only night outside the trade & convention center unfortunately turned out to be the 1 and only chance Vancouverites got to get the Mission Impossible star. He made the waiting worth it though, as Mr. Cruise strolled over to a crowd of 20-30 people (which swelled to 75-100 when extras & crew came over too) around midnight & did a 20-30 minute meet & greet with fans, taking photos & signing autographs. Each interaction he made feel special, he asked fans to make sure their photos turned out and even acknowledged autograph requests with a level of respect, and not just a "ugh, fine" mentality to it.
No disrespect to Mr. Cruise, but at the end of the day, a rare, hard to obtain signature is a bigger deal on average than a classy, easier to obtain star.
Anytime you get someone of Madonna's level of fame, its probably going to make your best list. The Material Girl has been known for quite awhile as, at best, an unwilling signer. However, when you are promoting a movie you directed & has been panned by many critics, you are on your best behaviour.
That is what fans in Toronto got when the pop icon was there to promote W.E. this past Summer for TIFF.
Madonna signed probably 75-100 autographs on the red carpet, and signed at dinner a bit later after her event as well.
Some honorable mentions should go out to the likes of Patrick Gilmore, Rose McGowan, Daniel & Henrik Sedin, Ben Cotton & Lyndsy Fonseca.
So, that concludes 2011. Some amazing successes for me. Granted, there was some downright failures as well. I somehow never got Matt Damon despite him being here for 2-3 months. All my Saoirse Ronan autographs were ruined by an ugly fading silver sharpie. I missed Robert DeNiro AGAIN by mere inches, and same with Brad Pitt this time.
Who will grace the list at the end of 2012? Going into 2011, there wasnt a lot of "sure things" I could see making the list. To be honest, most of the list is a complete surprise, simply because I didnt know going into 2011 these people would cross my paths.
A few pics of Hellcats stars Matt Barr, Robbie Jones, Aly and AJ Michalka, Heather Hemmens and Ashley Tisdale
Going thru my backlogged photos I found a few more Hellcats pics that never made it to my blogs.
They consist of Matt Barr & Robbie Jones at the WB Press Junket earlier this year. Some pics from outside of the cast arriving during the episode where Dans film project is shown, as well as a few of Aly & AJ Michalka on set the day they shot the scenes where Marti chases her 1/2 sister on the show out of the guitar shop she was working at.
So, back in March/April, I shot some pics of the CW show Hellcats on their final day of location shooting for the season. As it would turn out... it was the final day of location shooting for the show EVER.
At the time, I had this blog earmarked to be posted shortly before the season finale came around....then, my computer died. For a little over a month I was computerless. By the time I got a new computer, I had dozens of other projects backlogged & more coming & my old material, such as this stuff, unsorted.
So, this blog got passed over for awhile. Then came the news the show had been cancelled. A shock to me by the way. This demotivated me in putting out this blog a bit longer as I didnt see the need anymore since the show wasnt coming back.
Now that my schedule is considerably slower, I have a chance to get some of my backlogged work caught up. So here it is Hellcats fans, the LAST PHOTOS I ever took from the Hellcats cast while they were here for the show.
Heather Hemmens, Matt Barr, Robbie Jones, Ashley Tisdale & Sharon Leal pictured.
I do have some other pics still to process from other days of shooting that depending what interest this blog has, I may eventually post this summer.
Last night was the Gala event for the 13th annual Leo Awards. The best of British Columbia's TV & movie industry gathered to hand out their top awards. This years event was held at the Hotel Vancouver, after a scheduling change prevented them from holding it at their usual place, the Westing Bayshore. With the change in venue came a few challenges.
The most notable challenge was the red carpet set up on Georgia street. In the past, at the Bayshore, the carpet was set up along a very quiet and spacious sidewalk along side the hotels convention centre. This set up was great for everyone involved, as it was spacious & well lit with natural light when it is sunny. This year however, the red carpet was set up on the sidewalk of a mains treet that dozens of people use every minute. The carpet itself took up about 2/3 of the sidewalk, leaving a slim 3-5 ft ledge for fans & onlookers, uncredited media, autograph hounds & passer bys to navigate, with a lane of a busy thoroughfare just behind them. Thankfully for the awards there was no incidents with traffic hitting any people, despite many people, myself included, occasionally using the 1st lave of the street to walk in.
The cast of "Sanctuary" was the front & centre draw of the television side of the awards for the mostpart. With the loss of "Stargate Universe" this year, the gang from Sanctuary made up a lot larger portion of this years TV representation. SGU did have 1 representitive there, Jennifer Spence, a nominee for Best supprting actress in a drama, but failed to win, losing out to Lucia Walters from "Life Unexpected" in their 1 & only nomination as well. Ryan Robbins did bring home a solo award for the Sanctuary cast in the Best Supporting male category.
Many of the more notable Vancouver based shows won some awards as well. Fox sci-fi hit "Fringe" lead all TV shows in wins with 3 (tied with Sanctuary) for Cinematogray, Production design & best guest actor for Michael Eklund. "Supernatural" won for best visual effect. "Smallville" won for best program in its final season. "Human Target" won for best stunt co-ordinator.
Smaller shows like "Blackstone", wich won 2 awards walked away with the more notable awards for TV acting. Carmen Moore won the best actress award. The best actor went to Callum Keith Rennie from "Shattered"
In the movie side of the awards, "Gunless" walked away with 4 awards including best prgraom, cinematography, production design & stunt co-ordinator. "Altitude", "Transparency" & "Fathers & Sons" won 2 awards each, the latter taking home best supporting actor Jay Brazeau. Several movies snagged 1 award each, including "Life, Above All", "Amazon Falls" which April Telek took best lead actress, "Tucker And Dale VS Evil" which Tyler Labine took best lead actor & "Repeaters" which Alexia Fast took best supporting actress for.
Other notable winners were Paul McGillion for best lead actor in a short drama movie "A Fine Young Man" (which lead the way with 4 wins in that section..including best program), Shirley Broderikc for best actress in a short drama "The Closer You Get To Canada". "Mighty Jerome" won 4 awards, including best documentary program. "The Haunting Hour" won 4 awards as well in best youth or childrens program, including best show & best performance for Richard Harmon.
"Hiccups" had 5 wins, including best comedy program & best performance for Nancy Robertson, that was the most of anyone at the awards.
Below are some pics of the presenterrs, nominees & winners as they arrived for the awards.
Pictured "Blood & Chrome" & "Hellcats" star Ben Cotton. "The Listener" star Lauren Lee Smith, "Robson Arms" star Gabrielle Rose, "Intelligence", "Smallville" & "Alice I Think" star Michael Eklund, "Tucker & Dale VS Evil" & "Reaper" star Tyler Labine, "The Killing" & "Tucker & Dale VS Evil" star Brandon Jay McLaren with "Whistler" & "Tucker & Dale VS Evil" star Jesse Moss, "Wolf Canyon", "Harpers Island" & "Health Nutz" star Ali Liebert, "90210" star Dustin Milligan, "Smallville" star MacKenzie Gray, "Robson Arms", "Supernatural" & "Amazon Falls" star April Telek, "Stargate Universe" & "The 4400" star Jennifer Spence with "Kingdom Hospital" star Ben Ratner, "Twilight Saga Eclipse" "Kingdom Hospital" & "Dead Like Me" star Jodelle Ferland, "Charlie St Cloud" & "Whistler" star Amanda Crew, "Sanctuary" "Stargate SGI & Atlantis" star Amanda Tapping, "Sanctuary" "Dawsons Creek" & "Dead Like Me" star Robin Dunne, "Sanctuary" & "Dan For Mayor" star Agam Darshi.
One of the perks of what I do is, when someone comes to town from something I really like, I have a better than average chance of meeting them. Those odds are multiplied when you have an inside line on how to contact them.
Recently this was the case when DEAD LIKE ME's Mason & current SMALLVILLE baddie Callum Blue came to town to reprise his role of Zod.
As a huge DLM fan, I am always a bit giddy when the prospect of seeing a former castmate from the show arises. I've now met Callum on 4 (or is it 5?) different occasions, including while grocery shopping once, and hes always been relaxed, cool & easy to chat with, and this time was no different.
Callum chatted with my friend & I about a literal plethora of categories, from the death of DLM, to the weather, to not drinking, to his sudden curiousity to check out the cheerleader driven Tom Welling produced drama Hellcats. Basically, the man was a fountain of chatter.
When I asked him if he had any other projects on the go, he mentioned his next project he will work on after finishing with Smallville will be over in England called "Happy Musical" (directed by Andrew Le Pera) which will be an independant film.
He also has two upcoming projects.
"Colombiana" (in theatres this September) directed by Olivier Megaton (Transporter 3) which stars Zoe Saldana as an assassin out for revenge after seeing her parents killed as a kid.
"Super Tanker" (made for TV movie for Syfy) with a still unknown release date that I couldnt find much more info on at this time.
Oddly, the 1 thing I didnt really ask him about, was his role in Smallville. In my original contact with him to find out when he was coming, he told me he was coming for episode 20. However, he also came in a couple days later than originally planned and left a bit later than originally planned... so who knows if that is in fact which episode he was here for. Mathematically, it about adds up... but as Smallville dans already know, they have filmed other peoples roles out of order to conform to the entertainers schedules, so perhaps he is in the finale as well? Guess you all will just have to watch to find out. In the meantime, heres a few pics from him while he was here.
So last weekend there was a wrap party for season 1 of the new CW cheerleader drama Hellcats at V Restaraunt in Yaletown. With only a few days left in their shooting schedule, this was the weekend they chose to have it on, as surely next weekend some or all of the cast may have dispersed.
Usually wrap parties see a handful of cast show up, but theres always some missing. The Hellcats cast was surprisingly full, with really only 2 notable secondary cast, Gail O'Grady (Wanda Perkins) & Gale Harold (Prof. Julian Parish). Everyone else I could think of made it.
The first cast members I saw show up were Sharon Leal (Vanessa) & Craig Anderson (Morgan Pepper). Shortly after Ben Cotton (Travis Guthrie) arrived & was willing to chat for a few minutes about the show, his character & his new pilot "Battlestar Galactica Blood & Chrome". Then came the primary cast. First up was Aly Michalka (Marty Perkins) followed shortly after by Ashley Tisdale (Savannah Monroe), Robbie Jones (Lewis Flynn), as well as Heather Hemmens & Matt Barr (Alice Verdura & Dan Patch) who came together. They all showed up within a couple minutes of each other, so there wasnt a lot of chance to interact with all of them. Jeremy Wong (Dawrin) & Alana Randall (Frankie) apparently arrived at some point as well, but I didnt notice them going in.
A couple hours would pass before anything would else would happen. It wasnt till a random Bronson Pelletier (Twilight Saga films) sighting walking by the restaraunt that things seemed to pick up a little. Shortly after seeing him out & about, Hellcats producer, and star of Smallville Tom Welling arrived with an entourage of 3 or 4 people which included co-star Justin Hartley.
Some time would go by again before we saw another random sighting. Nickelback lead singer Chad Kroeger came to hang out with a few friends at the restaraunt downstairs from the party, Earls Restaraunt, which added to a very random night.
First to leave was Ashley Tisdale, who was in a little more happy state coming out than she was going in. She signed for me, but refused to sign for my friend claiming her feet were hurting because of her shoes. I guess they didnt hurt 3 seconds before that???
More cast would slowly make their way out. Ben Cotton & Sharon Leal were next to depart (I cant remember in which order now). Then came the majority of the cast a little later, including Matt Barr & Heather Hemmens coming out together as they went in together.
In between that group and the final group, Chad Kroeger came back out & joked with us as 2 of us were taking his photo asking how thats possible when theres only 1 magazine in town & then saying he hasnt seen so many cameras here since his court case for DUI a few years ago. Then, him & his friends got into a limo (wise choice for a man with a DUI on his record, good to see him planning ahead) and rode off home.
It would be another 45 mins or so before the final batch would come down.
Aly Michalka came out with her sister who we never saw arrive, her mom, Tom Welling, Justin Hartley & another female friend.
Justin came out first to secure a taxi, and the cab driver was giving him attitude telling him he would only wait "a couple minutes to get out there". Justin went back & told the rest there was a cab there (called the cab driver a "dick" to his group..and rightfully so) only to have it taken from them after the girls insisted the taxi driver take a man who was bleeding perfusely from the head to the hospital, after what can only be assumed was from some type of altercation just up the street. The cab driver was refusing to take the man, but the girls quite insisted & with 8-10 people telling him to, he begrudgingly took the man in more serious need of a ride than the rich celebs who then opted to walk home.
Up the street they passed a couple men who had clearly had more than too much to drink who were threatening to throw down right in the middle of the fairly abandoned street. Tom seemed unfased by it & more fascinated to see if they were going to infact fight or not. Justin seemed to be encourageing the girls to just keep moving, as was I. Aly looked quite upset to be seeing it. At that point, I let them go on their way...or so I thought. Little did I know they would get to the next block & stop there for a few minutes, and I would again cross paths with them 1 more time before our nights finally quit crossing paths.
Unfortunately, my cameras batteries were on deaths door, so I was being extra picky about taking shots & was really only shooting when I was sure I had a chance for a shot...to top it off, the flash refused to work 3 or 4 times, thus why I have no good Ashley pics, and the Tom pics are quite fuzzy & blurry.. since I had to resort to shooting him without my flash.
Pics below of Ben Cotton, Matt Barr, ly Michalka, Heather Hemmens and the Loch Ness Monster, or is it Tom Welling?
A few of you asked if I had anymore Hellcats vid of last nights kissing scene between Gale Harold (Julian) and Aly Michalka (Marti).
Yes I do... but like I told those that asked...this one wasnt as good as the last one because I moved around a bit & my camera lost its focus for a second or two.
But here it is anyways, and an answer to a few other questions I was asked...or read on other sites about it.
1- Why did the scene take 2 hours? Filming is always this way. A simple 20 second scene often takes an hr or two to shoot, as they change angles to shoot it from, almost always it takes more than 1 take, the director may ask them to do it slightly different way each time etc. Plus they filed more than just the part shown in my video, it was the only part I had any angle to shoot. There was 2 other parts to the scene where they continue making out from the door to a wall 15-20 feet away that includes them disrobing each other (partially).
2- What was Gale saying in the scene? No idea. I was about 100 ft away & it was just off a moderately busy st with lots of background noise to drown out any chance of hearing stuff.
3- Why does Marti look different in the two videos from the other post? No idea what you are seeing that makes you think that. It was all from the same take, I just stopped recording for a few seconds because the take prior seemed a lot longer & I didnt want to record 30 seconds of inactivity.
4- when will this air? Rough guess 4-8 weeks. Probably more in the 6-8 weeks timespan.
5- Are they filming the season finale? I do not think so. There is still 1 month of filming left and an epi usually takes about 2 weeks to do... so by my estimates this puts it at the 3rd to last episode.
Now, all that aside....... Another little issue.
The last videos I posted managed to find their way to youtube, photobucket & 2 websites without my permission. The content is on here FOR FREE... so there should be no reason to be stealing it & posting it on your page. Simple link to my article is fine, but downloading the video & re-posting it on your site...even if you "credit" me is not acceptable. I dont post this so you can re-post it & circumvent people coming to this site. TBH I dont know how you are doing it, I was under the impression it was blocked from downloading. If you post the article, thats fine, but any reference to the videos should be a link to the site.
I have already had to put in violation complaints to youtube & photobucket & will be doing the same to 2 websites tomorrow if my simple request to remove them voluntarily isnt met.
Tonight I saw a few scenes for the locally shot CW series Hellcats done.
*****SPOILERS POSTED BELOW IN THE VIDEOS...DONT PROCEED IF YOU WANT TO AVOID ANY SPOILERS*****
Ok, still here? Ok, you have been warned.... soooo here we go.
Earlier scenes were somewhat generic, involving the shows star Aly Michalka & guest stars AJ Michalka (her sister) & Jim Byrnes (from Highlander) at a guitar store that involved Aly chasing out the store after AJ.
But the real big scene was later a block away when Aly's character (Marti) & Gale Harold's character (her professor Julian Parish) shared a little more than the average teacher student relationship does. For more than 2 hours, I saw Aly & Gale do 3 different angles of 1 scene, them kissing. The first angle was however the only 1 that had any potential for shooting. Later angles were done from the other side of the door, thus we couldnt stand where were standing when they were shooting from behind Aly, and the final scene, although I had an angle to shoot it, I would have seemed like a complete ass trying to, since the film crew was mere feet away from me shooting the scene from the exact same spot.
Video attached is split into 2 parts (there was a bit too long of a pause in between parts for my liking).
I was working on a Hellcats blog unrelated to this one as it was, but bumped it for this blog. Pics from todays daytime shoot will be added to that blog later this month.
I occasionally argue with inanimate objects, but I usually win. So its all good.
