The cast & crew of Fresh, a film for streaming company Hulu, filmed around Vancouver for a couple months in early 2021, and now the streaming movie is getting ready for its big premiere on March 4, 2022. Just a little under a year after it filmed its last scenes.
The first time I caught up with the cast & crew of this production was in an interesting set. For starters, both stars were on set, Marvel star Sebastian Stan as Steve, who at the time had his own series The Falcon & The Winter Soldier premiering on Disney+, along with recent Golden Globe nominated actress Daisy Edgar Jones as Noa were both on the set. Things get a little steamy for the pair, as they share a kiss in the scene, and do a scene where it seems that Noa gives Steve her number.
This was also the first time, in a long time, I had crew members at a set try & bully me into leaving (quite unsuccessfully), and when I told them to get the Cop that was standing not even 10 feet away, they did.... only to get told they were in the wrong, and slink off in failure. I assumed I would have no more issues with this production after that. Silly me.
The 2nd time I caught up to them was exactly a week later. This time it was a daytime scene, and Daisy was again on set. This time however, she was on set with a new cast member. Jonica T Gibbs as Millie. The pair shot a scene in a park where they were talking through some things, while having what I assume was a lunch. There was no sign of Sebastian around on this day. They also had shot another scene out on the street just as I got there they were wrapping it, so perhaps he was in that scene. But I never saw him, and didnt get to shoot whatever was in that scene at all.
The crew, who as I said earlier, got their egos handed to them a week earlier apparently had a short memory. Because they attempted again to bully me & another photographer into leaving, which they not only ended up losing, but caused us to get even better angles than the ones we originally were in before they tried. I cant remember the last time a production had taken two Ls in year, let alone in 1 week. They clearly put all the movies budget into the on screen talent, because the behind the scene people werent the brightest.
The last time I caught up to them was on the 2nd to last day of filming for the movie in mid-March. This time at a small studio just outside the city. We were not sure if we would even see them there as they were inside the studio shooting most of the day. But lo & behold, we did catch both Daisy & Sebastian walking back to set at one point. First up was Daisy, walking with a couple people. Shortly after Sebastian walked to set. When he was walking, he noticed me & the other photographer there just before him and his assistant went behind a large truck. When they came out the other side, his assistant tried fruitlessly to block us from photographing him, and to top it off, Sebastian seemingly wanted nothing to do with the feeble attempt at covering him, as he stepped around the man to give a huge thumbs up to us, before heading into the studio to film a scene in medical scrubs.
The film is being directed by 1st time director Mimi Cave. It is from a screen play by Lauryn Kahn. It is described on their wikipedia page, as "The horrors of modern dating seen through one young woman's defiant battle to survive her new boyfriend's unusual appetites.".
Fresh comes out March 4th on Hulu. At this time, no theatrical release seems to be planned.
If you are a fan of Sebastian Stan, I also photographed him back when he was here filming Once Upon A Time. You can find those photos HERE.
Video of these days shoots will be on Youtube soon (I will definitely have it up before the movie comes out, but not this week). You will be able to find it when its ready HERE.
