Earlier this month SPN shot scenes for episode 817 at the Murray Hotel, just around the corner from the Sheraton Wall Centre. I got a lot of pics that day.
So here is a few more pics, all of Jared Padalecki (aka - Sam Winchester.. also aka - @Jarpad on Twitter.)
Some photos are coming up next... of the 2 of them
together. But first, this batch.
Click the link below to see the episode 817 photos
of them filming the scene, and of just Jensen.
THIS POST MAY CONTAIN MILD SPOILERS TO SUPERNATURAL EPISODE 817. Do not continue reading or looking at the photos if you dont want to know anything about the episode prior to its release.
The 1st time I have seen Sam & Dean Winchester doing a scene together in a long, loooong time this week happened.
After getting a fairly uncirculated lead from one of my more reputable sources, I opted to take the tour over to the corner of Hornby & Helmcken to catch some SPN filming action.
Supernatural filmed a scene for episode 817 in downtown Vancouver on Tuesday & both Jared Padalecki & Jensen Ackles were in attendance for the rare downtown Winchester Brothers Daytime sighting.
The scene really had very little to it. The boys drive up in Deans Baby, The Impala. Stop, get out & run across the street into the Murray Hotel (located less than a 1 minute walk from the Sheraton Wall Centre Hotel... for those fan con attendees from out of town looking to location hunt when you come bext time).
I grabbed a handful of photos of them filming, and in between scenes for over an hour & 1/2 before a crew member at the nagging of another crew member, took it upon himself to try & prevent me from taking photos on their 2nd to last take. Mission NOT Accomplished for that poor misguided soul, as the 90 minutes prior of standing in plain sight shooting the scene gave me more than enough material for 3 blogs.
So heres some action photos... I will post a "in between takes" blog later on when I have a bit more time.
You can find a few other photos from local set report blogger YVRShoots here
Another set of Supernatural filming pics from Friday with Jensen, Jared and Misha - NOT as good quality.
Here are some more pics from the filming on Friday night.
They are NOT as good as the 1st batch http://canadagraphs.weebly.com/5/post/2012/10/supernatural-films-scenes-for-season-8-last-night-with-jensen-jared-misha.html Like I said in the last blog, dark, too far away, bad lighting = bad photos.
Some people simply want to see "something", so I am posting a few more of the "you sorta can tell whats going on" batch.
This was a rare night for filming. All 3 of the shows stars were on set together, and the crew did NOTHING to prevent fans from taking photos. That simply NEVER happens on the SPN set. The only "dont do that" they asked was no flash photography (a staple of ANY film set), and most everyone obliged.
The cool moment of the night was when Misha Collins came over on a break & chatted with the fans for about 2-4 minutes. The fans congratulated him on his 2nd child, and 1 couple told him how they named their cat after his character "Catstiel". Wouldnt you know it, probably 1st time ever, I had NOTHING on me to get signed either.
I do have video from a take of Jared & Misha doing a scene where they jump into the back of a camper van together (I can see you are already letting your minds wander to a bad place). Its not terribly long, and its pretty dark, but you can clearly tell who it is in the scene. Now, question is.... anyone want to see it? I basically would need to upload it in the next 2 days, as my Pro acct for this site expires then, and I wont be able to host videos directly on here & would have to upload them to youtube, then link the youtube video to here blah blah blah... and frankly thats not something I am a fan of doing. Sooo, if this blog, as crappy as it is, gets to 1000 views before my subscription expires, I'll post it.
THIS POST MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR SEASON 8 OF SUPERNATURAL. If you DO NOT want to read or see spoilers, DO NOT CONTINUE.
Yesterday I decided to go check out the Supernatural set over on Richards St. Oddly enough, I had found the info of them filming there while looking for them the day prior. It is pretty rare finding this show downtown twice in a month, let alone 2 days in a row.
My 1st attempt to scope out the set was fruitless as they were filming at the top of a building & I never found a spot that gave me a chance to see what was going on up there.
So, notable spoiler in this thread...... it appears Castiel eventually gets out of purgatory sometime this season & re-unites with the Winchesters.... of course, scenes can sometimes be deceptive in what they tell. Buuut, anyways...last night...
I came back around 7:30-8PM for the evening shoot that was going to be on the street. Just as I got there, I caught the last take of a scene that had Jensen & Jared (and apparently Misha, but I didnt see him) where they get out of the Impala. Right after that, the boys took off with their driver. I expected they would be back, but with no guarantees, I started asking the fans what I had missed. Thats when I was told of Misha being around as well.
Sure enough a little while later, the boys would return to the set (honestly, why bother leaving? They get to spend like 10 mins in their trailer... is that really worth it??). This time the Impala was now on the other side of the st. The scene had the trio get out of the car & hard down to a crime scene. They boys flash their very legitimate I'm sure police/FBI/etc badges to a cop & walk in under crime tape.
After that, they did a scene where the 3 of them come out of the Impala again, walk to the end of the alley, and split up. Jared & Misha go 1 way, as Jensen goes the other.
A solo scene of Jensen was shot where his character Dean Winchester was putting his hand thru a hole that I assume is supposed to be mysterious in some way as it was in the side of a brick building.
After that, a scene with Jared & Misha as Sam & Castiel did a scene where they walked up the street and decided to check out a red camper van & just go right in.
If there was any scenes after that, I dont know. I left there The lighting, as with ANY SPN set was terrible, so although I took like 400+ photos last night, really there was maybe 70-90 that I didnt think entirely suck. I added a couple of the grainier shots & blurrier ones in the set just so you see what we had to deal with. All it took was the slightest movement by them or me, and the photos were ruined.
As with ALL my posts. Do not re-post them to your site, tumblr, facebook, livejournal etc without proper credits. Do not post with tags removed. If found, they will be removed & your site provider may take more actions against you as some of you on tumblr recall from last year.
Last month I had a couple short run ins with the Supernatural set that I didnt feel entailed enough for a single blog...so I save dthem up & decided to post them all at once.
1st up.. I give you, a few shots of THE IMPALA!
Baby was back on set in July, and after a VERY aggressive campaign by 1 crew member to prevent people from photographing it (before being told...its ok, dont worry about it, by another crew member) I later found it parked on a side street, abandoned. While there was crew in the general area, fact is, none of them were within the immediate area of the car, and no one would have noticed if I had just opened the door & sat inside. Of course, I managed to resist the urge to do so, but took several close up phots of the inside. Seems on this particular day, 1 of the crew was keeping their cleaning supplies in the passenger side floor area.
After taking those photos, I went around back of the building they were at, and just missed Jared leaving, but managed to catch a couple quick side frames of Jensen Ackles leaving.
Two weeks to the day later, I caught the boys on set at the Greyhound station in Vancouver. Again, not a lot to see, only snapped a couple frames of Jared & Jensen arriving on set.
A few days later, after an uninspiring set in downtown that I deemed not worth checking out as it was all interiors I had my 1st ever random run in with 1 of the boys out at dinner.
I was on the bus headed to another TV show set, when I passed by a parking lot & saw (the bodyguard) Clifs truck. I cut my trip short & decided to get out & see if maybe it was because they were filming near there (they were supposed to be at the same spot...but film crews will often film at more than 1 spot in an area). I saw no immediate sign & went up a block, nothing, went back down, looked around the truck, noticed Clif wasnt in it, then went over to the next street to check out, and as I was doing that, a valet passed by me (the lot is used to park a cars for a local eatery there often). Once I got out to the other street, I saw nothing immediately, then just as I was about to head up the street I saw the unmistakable frame of Clif leaving a high end steak house, shortly behind him was Jared. The vehicle pulled up moments later as the valet I saw passing me was actually going to get the vehicle & shortly after that, they were on their way, apparently to the airport, as the next day Jared was spottied in NYC for New Jersey Con weekend.
I had several people ask me if Jensen was at dinner with him. Although I cant know 100% obviously, I am pretty confident the answer is no. He wasnt seen there, and unless he sat around, on a night he was working, finishing his meal after they left, he definitely wasnt with them when they left.
Anyways, here is the pics from the last few encounters....and now I'm up to date on my SPN pics.
