Seems I was wrong about Ryan Robbins (Falling Skies, Sanctuary) and Erin Karpluk (Being Erica) being on opposite sides of the law in hacker mini-series Delete. They looked very much a team today outside Vancouver Community College throwing fake rocks with Keir Gilchrist. In fact, Karpluk has a hell of an arm. The steadicam crew filming the scene in the intersection kept flipping around so that it was almost impossible not to be in the 360 degree scene even at a distance. One woman jumped behind a bush with her groceries until a take finished. And crew asked a real-life construction crew working on the street not to stare in the direction of filming. I think we may all be in a shot or two.
Delete is the third in a trio of “Disaster Pack” mini-series filming here this summer. This is a story of a digital disaster where the world wide web becomes self aware and intent on destroying mankind so that a second artificial intelligence must be created to stop it. I was hoping to see Seth Green (Robot Chicken, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) on set as hacker activist Lucifer.
Delete, the third in a trio of “Disaster Pack” mini-series filming here this summer, shot a scene at the Smile Diner on Friday night, with Ryan Robbins (Falling Skies, Marilyn, Sanctuary) and Erin Karpluk (Bailout, Being Erica) seemingly on opposite sides of the law. In fact, I didn’t recognize Robbins at first in his detective suit and slicked-back hair, leading out young Keir Gilchrist from the diner.
And I don’t know how this crime scene fits into a story about a digital disaster where the world wide web becomes self aware and intent on destroying mankind, so that a second artificial intelligence must be created to stop it. Nor do I know what roles Matt Frewer, Gil Bellows and Janet Kidder play in Delete. I don’t know much at all, except this is a great Vancouver cast. [And with a wonderful new addition: Seth Green cast as "hacker activist" Lucifer.]
Delete is the third of Sonar Entertainment’s disaster trio of mini-series to start filming here. World on Fire, with Michael Vartan (Alias) Lauren Lee Smith (CSI), Terry O’Quinn (Lost) and Agam Darshi (Ry Robbins’s cast mate on Sanctuary), showed up first, turning downtown Chilliwack into the site of a volcanic eruption which triggers a Ring of Fire that spreads around the world. Then Dark Universe with Steven Webber (Wings), Christina Cox (CSI) and Treat Williams (Everwood) set up an Occupy movement-style tent city in downtown Vancouver’s Victory Square for its saga of eco-terrorists hijacking an experiment into unlimited energy which unleashes a dark energy black hole on the world. Hope planet Earth survives all this.
