SET: FIFTY SHADES OF GREY Turns University of British Columbia into Washington State University – Vancouver
Fifty Shades of Grey crew hung grey Washington State University – Vancouver banners on the University of British Columbia campus today confirming that Ana Steele (Dakota Johnson)’s graduation scenes will be filmed here. A massive interlocking series of white tents on the grassy Main Mall [are a giant graduation extras holding area]. All the activity suggests filming will be tomorrow but there are no notices on campus so we will have to see if and when cast, extras and production show up.
Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan)’s continuous pressure on Ana to sign his contract complicates her graduation but his auditorium speech about eradicating hunger and poverty across the globe is revealing. His interactions with valedictorian Kate (Eloise Mumford), Kate’s brother Ethan and Ana’s stepdad Ray (Callum Keith Rennie) at the after-party confuse her further. What will she do?
Crew added leaves to bare branches in the background of the auditorium on Friday, Saturday and Sunday to make December in Vancouver, B.C. look like May in Vancouver, Washington.
Pile of leaves and branches ready to be used.
