I caught up with Supergirl filming episode 6x13, directed by a long time TV director Tawnia McKiernan (daughter of industry icon Stephen J. Cannell). On this day, the cast & crew were downtown inside the Vancouver Convention Centre during the day, and at night, shooting 2 scenes in Jack Pool Plaza.
The scenes included Melissa Benoist as Supergirl, David Harewood as Martian Manhunter, Chyler Leigh as Sentinel, Staz Nair as William Dey, and Azie Tesfai as Guardian. There was also a currently unknown woman, and a currently unknown teenager/young adult male.
After it got dark, they had 2 different units running, almost at times overlapping each other a bit. At one of the plaza, there was a scene where William saves the young male from something, then Sentinel comes in immediately & fends whatever it is off while William rushes the other character away from the scene. Unfortunately, that night, (and really the night before too), the angles I had for that scene did not produce very good photos, so I scrapped pretty much everything I shot at that end of the plaza... although this night there were a couple less terrible shots than most compared to the day before.
At the other end of the plaza, they had a scene with Supergirl, Martian Manhunter and an unknown girl doing a scene, then they did more of the scene, this time with Sentinel there too.... then a bit later, with Guardian there as well. In the scene, they are asking the unknown girl, who the night before seemed to be angry at the super friends, but was now trying to work with them it seemed, how to stop the lightning storm that she seemed to create. She yells out some sciency jargon towards the team, and then they disperse to take care of it, with MM & Supergirl flying off, while Sentinel and Guardian go to do something on the ground.
A later scene had Sentinel with Guardian, doing a scene where Sentinel is down on the ground with a wand of sometime, trying to do something, while Guardian is protecting her with her shield as she does whatever it is shes doing. After that, they did a couple very short takes with Guardian, Sentinel, and Supergirl back out there for like 2 or 3 takes of a scene, and they then wrapped for the week.
All of the scenes had various lights around the plaza blinking on & off to simulate lightning through the shooting, which is why at times some photos are dark, then suddenly some are quite bright.
I have other set photos from the day before HERE.
Video will come later in May on my YOUTUBE CHANNEL. So check in there for those later on.
Some of the videos will be on the Patreon page for video tier members THIS WEEK, and more coming for a while (I have a few to work through).
