The cast & crew of the Apple TV Monsterverse series, currently filming under the title of "HourGlass" (currently known right now as "Untitled Apple TV Godzilla & The Titans Project") (UPDATED SEPT 8 - "Monarch : Legacy Of Monsters") started two weeks ago. Yesterday was the first known public set of the series. They were filming in an empty lot in downtown Vancouver close to an area other projects have used in the past.
On this particular day, the series, directed by "Wandavision" director Matt Shakman, shot scenes of a refugee encampment in the Oakland area (based off an emergency vehicle that was near there, but not in the scenes I saw shot).
On this day, they were shooting a scene with a lot of background, walking around either looking like army personnel, or refugees. Sadly, I never saw Gozilla, or any other monsters walking around. Starting to think they might not be real.
The cast was recently announced at the end of June. Kiersey Clemons, Joe Tippett, Elisa Lasowski, and Ren Watabe, joined the actress I saw on set during this days shoot.
Anna Sawai (Pachinko, F9, Shogun) was on set as "Cate" doing 2 different scenes. First scene was with Tamlyn Tomita. The second was with a currently unidentified actor. (if you know who they are, let me know in the comments). The first scene saw Anna walk across a lot while people walk around, and a truck rolls through. She comes to a pair of chairs set up infront of tents. There she comes up to Tamlyns character, and gives her a drink & food, while she sits in the other chair there, and they talk while eating.
A bit later, she moved over to the next part of the lot. Here she does a scene with an actor. She walked through a different lot, turns around, sees the man, they run to each other, hug in an excited embrace. they then talk for awhile, before having an argument, and the man leaves, and she just stands there looking around.
I had hoped for a bit more exciting content on the day. But this was the 1st public shoot. So for now, thats what there is.
A video of these scenes is currently in the Patreon channel (photos 1st look as low as $2/mo, and videos as low as $5 a month), and will be up on my public Youtube channel in the upcoming weeks.
The series premieres on Apple TV in November 17, 2023.
