I caught up with Supergirl filming episode 6x12, directed by former Arrow star David Ramsey. On this day, the cast & crew were in a a couple alleys across the street from each other in downtown Vancouver during the day, then out on Richards Street for a short night shoot.
In the daytime, they had 2 units working at the same time, and director Ramsey was bouncing back & forth between units. On 1 side, they were doing scenes in the same alley as yesterdays shoot (that report is HERE), with the towncar there.... but unsure what exactly they filmed, as the scene was mostly not visible yesterday. On the other side, they were preparing a scene with the unknown woman from yesterday & her security guards, getting chased by Azie Tesfai (and her stunt double at times) as Kelly Olsen dressed differently than she was just the day before, as she had the more James Olsen Guardian attire than the outfit she was in the day prior. Thus, it seems Kelly will get her new Guardian outfit sometime in episode 6X12. Kelly wasnt the only character chasing the baddie though. Guardian was joined by director Ramsey, as he was on set in John Diggle attire. No sign of a Green Lantern outfit sadly. But now we know that episode 6x12 appears to be the episode he will be in for his Supergirl appearance. In the scene, the two heroes run down the alley after the baddies. While Guardian runs after the mystery woman, Diggle is stopped by her two security guys, and he has to fight them off. At times, Azie was playing Guardian for the scene where she probably had to do some speaking parts, at other times, her double was doing the scene. Same went for David, who also had double duty of directing, and his stunt double was there for some of the scenes as well, as you can see in a couple fo the photos where David is watching his double rehearse the stunt fights, so that when David came in, he would know what he had to do (even as Director, you need to still see it in action so you can just get the flow of it in person, as it might not be how you envisioned it when you were thinking of it on paper).
After the sun went down, they did two very short shoots. First a scene with 2 kids walking through a parking lot, then a big bright flashing light goes off, and the two kids collapse, while background panic & run away. Then just around the corner, a scene was done with just Azie dressed as Kelly this time. She walks out of an Ethiopian Restaurant that was named "Selamanit Ethiopian" with a bag of take out food, and is on the phone to someone named "Joey" when suddenly a loud boom goes off, and she seems to no longer be able to talk to "Joey" as Kelly says in a concerned voice the name, as if trying to figure out if the person was still on the line. Unfortunately, when the scene was shooting, Kelly was walking too fast for my camera to catch her ins tride under the Restaurant sign, but I did get a couple photos of her near it between takes, as did she. With Azie also writing this episode, I have to feel the addition of the Ethiopian Restaurant was a choice she made, to show off her East African heritage in the scene in some way. Azie even posted on her Instagram as a story, a little teaser pic of the "receipt" that was attached to the bag in the episode. Since its an Instagram story, I've also added the image at the end of my gallery, in case you see this blog after it expires.
Video will come later in April 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).
