I caught up with Supergirl filming episode 6x13 (and a scene for potentially a different episode that was being done there, as Jesse Warn was on the clapper board for 1 scene), 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 (plus 1 for a different episode) in Jack Poole Plaza, (and out in front of the VCC around the corner from JPP).
The scenes included Melissa Benoist as Supergirl, David Harewood as Martian Manhunter, Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers / Sentinel, and Staz Nair as William Dey. There was also a currently unknown woman, and a currently unknown teenager/young adult male.
They came out while it was still light out to do a walk through of the scenes and dialogue before breaking for lunch. In the read through, they had Melissa, Chyler, David, and Staz there, along with the new girl.
After it got dark, they had 2 different units running, almost at times overlapping each other a bit. At one end 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 next night 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. At the other end of the plaza, they had a scene with Supergirl standing on top of a van, trying to convince the unknown female girl to do something, while the girl yells at her about having her lifes work ruined by them. Martian Manhunter is also there, and at one point the girl shoves MM against the van. This is a scene they would continue on doing the next night, which will be in my next report soon. In the continuation of the scene, there will be more cast in the scene.
The short scene for the potentially other episode had multiple people running around in a panic, a car coming to a screeching halt and the driver running away. Very short, and did not seem to have any cast, and the 4 or 5 photos I got during the 1 take were all blurry because of that running, so I didnt include them, just the clapper board.
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 will have another set of photos soon (maybe even today if my schedule is free?)
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).
