SHOOT: Karl Urban & Michael Ealy Film ALMOST HUMAN in Vancouver’s Business District
Some cops are born. Others are made.
How do you recognize an Almost Human set? The new J.J. Abrams/J.H. Wyman sci-fi procedural is set 35 years from now in 2048 Los Angeles when human police officers are paired with humanoid robot partners. So look for futuristic police squad cars (Fords underneath), motorcycles, bar code license plates, prop Quick Volt stations , Quick Stands and part-robot human police officer John Kennex (Karl Urban) walking with his part-human robot partner Dorian (Michael Ealy). Almost Human closed the 1000 block of West Hastings Street today near Oceanic Plaza and turned the Guiness Tower into the Danvers Building for scenes of Los Angeles police arriving at a future crime scene. What’s the crime? We’ll have to wait and see because that’s the fun of the series — seeing how criminals might take advantage of future technology in creative ways.
Michael Ealy gives me a very human look.
