Early this month, I ran in to Supergirl shooting a scene for an episode (somewhere around episode 14 or 15). The scene seemed to be part of a protest march. While I definitely dont watch the show anymore, I am moderately aware that they have pushed very hard to make the show a direct knock off of real life politics. The scene they shot here seemed to be centred around the idea of aliens having equal rights to locals.
The scene mostly was a group marching, with a group of guys wearing some jackets that had a large gold star on them. Sporadic chants could be heard from the scene telling people to leave, and they are unwelcomed there. They were apparantly outside a building for the "Department Of Alien Affairs".
For much of the shoot, I was pretty much in the dark for what was going on because of the massive amount of background extras marching in the scene, and the plethora of placards they were carrying with various protest slogans on them.
While I saw several cast on set, including newcomer Jonathan Bennett at one point. Only ones I actually "saw" filming were Nicole Maines as Nia Nal and Jesse Rath as Querl Dox for the most part. I KNOW they filmed a scene with Nia & Querl that also had Melissa Benoist as Supergirl and David Harewood as J'onn J'onzz in the scene, but for the most part, my view of them was obstructed. It was raining a lot, and between trying to find somewhere dry to photograph from, and all the equipment & protesters on the set, there was not a lot to actually see. I did earlier when I first got there saw ONE take of David & Jesse doing a scene where they walk along together..... but they never did that scene again while I was there. All in all, this was 1 of the more confusing sets I had been to, as there was long breaks between scenes, and the scene as I saw it, really didnt seem to line up right to me. All I can say of it is, it seems to consist of Jesse, Nicole, Melissa holding hands and walking along together while protesters stand behind them.
