Fringe films a few scenes for season 3 finale. Josh Jackson and Anna Torv on set. With Emily Meade and Brad Dourif
Earlier this month, the cult FOX TV hit "Fringe" filmed some of their last scenes in downtown Vancouver for season 3.
I am sure if you are any type of fan you have seen or heard about the very epic spoilers that came out from filming a bit before that & I am not at this time going to speculate on what I think they mean... but I do have theories.
Instead, I am simply going to post the photos from this evening of filming & give what few details I could put together from it.
There was two sets of scenes this evening. Some inside the historic Oprheum Theatre (you may recognize it as the place that season 2 ended in). The scenes were from what I heard from extras & crew were to do with an explosion/bomb going off at the symphony. On set for those scenes (may not actually be in all or any scenes... were just seen on set) Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, Emily Meade & Brad Dourif....as well as many extras in some very well done make up/special fx. The scenes appear to be set in the alt-world, as I saw several members in "Fringe unit" gear.
The later scene, which the public did see included a landscape of scattered debris, including part of the Orpheum sign laying on the ground burning as burned out cars filled the street, Torv & Jackson arrive & walk up towards the disaster zone. Josh was wearing an army style jacket with the name plate "Bishop" on it & a "Fringe" badge around his neck. My impression of the way both characters were dressed is this is to potray them in the future at some point as both Torv & Jackson had different hairsyles than the way they usually have them when playing Agent Olivia Dunham (or Fauxlivia either) and Peter Bishop.
I am not certain....but I did notice a telling spoiler in the pics I took. I wont speculate on it anymore till I have a chance to confirm what I saw. I tried avoiding posting pics involving this potential spoiler.
Anyways, below is a few pics from the day
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.
Well, as I said, there was more Fringe pics to add.
SPOILERS INCLUDED.- If you dont want to know any details of the episode...DO NOT READ ON!!!!!!
I had promised a photog not to post any pics from this set for a day.... Soooo, now that the day is passed...I can do them.
I know some of you have seen a couple pics from off in the distance of this scene already...but here are some more, probably more close up pics...with some details of the scene.
So, below, pics of Olivia & Peter KISSING.
Here is what I know of yesterdays shots.
First scenes earlier in the day were of our world Olivia, in the alternate world. She still has her reddish brown locks over there. Not much I can say about it other than she was at a park. Not sure what the scene was about, except, it was alternate world scenes.
The later scenes were in our world. There they started with scenes of Walter & Olivternate, who is sporting the trademark blonde locks of Torv's, sitting on some steps while Walter ate.
There was then a scene with Olivternate, Peter & Walter infront of steps. Peter starts at the top of the stairs & walks down to meet up with the pair who are already at the bottom. Some dialogue is exchanged, and Walter leaves with his little bagged lunch.
This leads up to the big scene of the night.
With Walter gone, Olivternate & Peter share a fairly lengthy soft kiss probably 2-4 seconds long, at the base of the steps & walk away arms wrapped around each other.
Funny side story- last year, that was the same place I first found Fringe filming...and wouldnt you know it. A kiss was had there too. At that time, it was Nina Sharp kissing Agent Broyles on the cheek.
I guess thats the official Fringe make out place.
ok, so now you know what we all know.....heres a few pics of the main scene.
The filming for Season 6 of The CW hit show Supernatural is now underway in Vancouver, Canada.
While the Winchester Boys have yet to be seen by any of the regulars in town yet, Their sidekick, Bobby Singer ( Jim Beaver ) has arrived for the start of filming.
The day before filming started, I met Jim at the airport upon his arrival back to our city. Little did I know at the time, Mr. Beaver had a guest in tow.
Sherriff Jody Mills ( Kim Rhodes ) came in with Jim to film an episode.
While little is known about the specific episode they are filming besides it centers on Bobbys character & Sherriff Mills will be in it, what is for certain is that SPN fans are already impatiently waiting to see how last seasons cliffhanger will play out this season.
Along with Beaver & Rhodes, the driver who picked them up also had a sign for Steven Williams who plays Rufus. I never saw him show up with them, but he clearly has some type of role in the episode that is being directed by Jensen Ackles.
