THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS POSSIBLE SPOILERS FOR THE SEASON 7 FINALE OF "PSYCH". Do not continue reading or watching the videos if you do not want to see any possible spoilers.
Back in October, the hit USA Network Crime Procedural comedy Psych was filming their season 7 finale....even though the premiere wouldstill not even air for 4 months.
On the day I caught them in North vancouver, there was a couple short diriving scenes done.
As you have probably already seen from the photos I posted in my blog posts (spoilers inside)
and here http://canadagraphs.weebly.com/6/post/2012/11/this-past-week-psych-spent-halloween-filming-scenes-for-the-season-7-finale-no-spoiler-post.html
Well, here are videos from them shooting.
I apologize for the background sounds on both of them... I frankly dont know whats up with the odd sounds (the clicking of my camera aside.. at least I know what that sound is).
First up... a scene where the Blueberry pulls up to a stop after Henry's truck pulls into the lot beside them.
The second video I wish I had the zoom option on my camera working smoother at the time. Something I learned on this day... when my camera gets reallly wet (which it was really wet that day) Sometimes basic functions dont react immediately...such as zooming out/in.
So here is a video of Henry Spencer driving by with a message for Shawn & Gus (who are off camera for the scene)
Psych films their season 7 fnale - and 1 of the cast has some choice words for 2 others (Spoiler inside)
On Halloween day, I caught the Psych crew & cast out filming on North Vancouver as I previously told you all here http://canadagraphs.weebly.com/6/post/2012/11/this-past-week-psych-spent-halloween-filming-scenes-for-the-season-7-finale-no-spoiler-post.html
In addition to the Shawn & Gus solo scenes, there was a few scenes with a 3rd notable cast member..... HENRY SPENCER!
When I 1st got to the set that day, I saw the blueberry & Henrys truck parked beside each other. Now I have known for a long time Henry was around this year... and thanks to the spoiler killers at USA Network, so does anyone who has seen their promo ad, with Henry standing behind Shawn & Gus.
This was, however, the 1st time I had seen Corbin Bernsen on set since he called my friends and me mistaken about him filming a few months ago when we caught him out at the River Rock Casino filming scenes.
There was a couple scenes Henry was in. 1 where the blueberry was follwing Henrys truck. Then later, the more entertaining scene.
When I first saw the scene being shot, I wasnt even aware it was Corbin I saw, it didnt make sense. The scene was Shawn & Gus leaving a hot dog stand, and their eyes follow a sign going by (off camera... which Corbin himself was carrying...but we couldnt read it at the time). I just thought they woulda had a crew member do such a menial task since it was off camera....but it sure enough was Corbin.
A little later, they turned around and did the filming from the angle of what Shawn & Gus were seeing. In this scene, you see Henry's truck rolling down the street, Henry has his arm out the window & is holding a sign. On the sign, it has simply 2 words "Suck it". Of course, a phrase used often on the show.
They did 3 or 4 takes carrying the sign, then did a couple takes of him not holding the sign but instead making a gun motion with his hand. So it was actually pretty hard for me to get a great shot of him with the sign out the window, but, I managed as good a shot as any of it as you can see below. As for the gun/hand takes, even harder, because of the rain soaked windows & the lighting. I tried playing with the colours a bit to make it more noticable, but its only moderately better.
I will have video of the scene up later on when I have a bit more time, maybe closer to the season start... In the mean time, heres some photos.
Last week I was eager to find Psych filming, as it was the last week of season 7, and depending what the powers that be at the NBC run USA Network that have already been grossly incomptent in mismanaging the shows premiering date, could end up being the shows final season.
My adventure started on the 29th. I followed a lead to South Vancouver, only to literally miss them finishing by less than 1/2 an hour. My buddy & I found out though that they were heading to the studio where they filmed partly on the 30th. As it turned out, they also did some on location shoots, and I headed over there to catch them the next day...only to AGAIN miss them, this time by mere minutes as I saw James Roday leave the set in 1 of their transportation vehicles.
The original wrap date for the show was the 30th, so this was pretty disappointing. Occasionally, shows will need a couple days more than their original end date to finish up. Luckily, I would find out, this was the case for Psych. While I stood around, deciding what to do in the pouring rain I came across 1 of their film notices & saw a tidbit of hope, they still had to film on the 31st. About 500 feet from there, I found another film notice for Psych, also with filming for the 31st on the next block down. I was making SURE I didnt miss this.
The morning of October 31st I made the trek over to the Lonsdale Quay area of North Vancouver, a city I had NEVER gone to for filming. Luckily, the locations were very close to the Quay, which is easy to find, since the aquatic transit vehicle, the seabus drops off right there. I walked over to where they were supposed to be filming, but nothing was around, except for a few no parking signs. The film notice suggested filming should start around 8 AM, and with it being 9 AM when I got there, I was quite confused to not see any setting up, filming, or taking down of the filming area. From there I walked around a corner to where I saw some pylons, and there I saw it.... the Blueberry, parked next to another film vehicle in a lot, all by itself. It would be almost FOUR HOURS till they started filming in that location.
They did a few different scenes, some of which I am not going to entirely explain in this post, as I will save it for another blog post later this week with a mild spoiler (for those who dont read message boards or saw their S7 promo ad it might be a big spoiler). The scenes essentially show Shawn & Gus in the blueberry driving around following this other vehicle. Eventually we see scenes shot where James Roday & Dule Hill are at a hot dog stand with fistfulls of snacks, (hotdogs & drinks.). Gus & Shawn walk away from the truck, Shawn gets a call on his phone & they proceed to watch someone behind camera walk along holding a sign. That is, the end of the scene.
Later that evening, I found Dry Gulch Slim & Ovaltine Jenkins doing interior scenes at a restaraunt on Lonsdale Ave, unfortunately, the only shots to be had from there was of the well lit outside of the building, as the filming was all indoors.
So, here are pics from the day of shooting... and dont forget, I will have more photos from this day of shooting later in the week of another cast member doing part of the scene holding a very Psych-y sign as the person drives by Shawn & Gus.
