With the announcement earlier this week from The CW that Batwoman would officially be joining the schedule of shows for the network this fall, it seemed like a good time to finally work on my blog post for the filming I saw done here.
This production was kind of tough to track down over the 2-3 weeks they were here filming the pilot earlier this year. But I did catch up to them at 1 location on multiple nights. The Vancouver Art Gallery is used often for filming. Almost every production has filmed there.
On the first night, they did an exterior shoot down in front of the gallery in the early evening. The scene saw a lot of Gothams elite going into an event that Mayor Akins was seemingly hosting, as massive banners saying “Mayor Akins” were hanging off the building. In front of the heavily guarded entrance for the event there was a CROWS Security truck at one point, along with dozens of protesters holding up a variety of signs in support of Batman.
This sets the stage for the scene to clearly be from in the past, prior to when Batwoman comes to town as the hero of the city. But, the signs also indicate Batman hasn't been around much of late. Will we ever find out why? Will this be one of the seasons main stories to solve? Or will the Batwoman writing team just gloss over it, and shove it aside, and alienate the majority of Batwoman fans who come into her story through the more recognizable Batman by never paying off the acknowledgement of his existence?
Cool extra thing throughout the shoot was, the use of the "Bat signal" in the sky in various spots. Much to everyone who was there watchings disappointment, it is nothing like the machine shown in the show. It is a far smaller lens, and more of a tube, with the Bat logo deep inside the tube, and not on the lens, to make the logo look bigger in the sky.
On the final night, there seemed to be even less to see, as there was no exterior shoot going on, except a really small one on 1 side of the building that I almost missed because of the strategically planted tree that mostly covered the angle unless you are walking right through the narrow space it was shooting. I had seen it shortly before, but there was just a stand in up there at the time, and I didn't see any crew set up to shoot, so I mistakenly passed it off as maybe just a crew member standing there. A very small unit (literally a camera person and 3 other crew to cover off the area from people stepping into it did a shot that they might have done multiple times for all I know, but I sadly only caught them on the very last take. It had Ruby Rose staring down off a makeshift perch they had built just for the scene. The light on her was so bright, my photos basically looked like I photographed a ghost standing there. But once she walked away from it I saw it was her, but she would never come back for another take there, so that was all I saw of Batwoman actually shooting that night, and it was really just as Kate Kane.
Some of the cast were on set throughout the two nights. But it is possible more than what I saw were there too, as much of what was shot was up on the rooftop during a rooftop party scene.
Ruby Rose – Kate Kane / Batwoman
Elizabeth Anweis – Catherine Hamilton Kane
Nicole Kang – Mary Hamilton
Meagan Tandy – Sophie Moore
Rachel Skarsten – Alice
Camrus Johnson – Luke Fox
Dougray Scott – Colonel Jacob Kane

Here is the heavily criticized Batwoman trailer. Which has almost 400,000 dislikes, 83% dislikes to 17% likes, and a whopping 7% of all views received garnering a dislike vote. Good news for them, they have a few problems to fix their writing problems.
Below there is my set of photos from that shoot.
