Fringe’s Peter Bishop & Arch-Enemy Captain Windmark in Downtown Vancouver for Ep. 5×08

Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson) and the Fringe Division’s arch-enemy Captain Windmark (Michael Kopsa) filmed on the same downtown Vancouver set today near BC Place  but not in the same scene when I was watching. So it was an unexpected treat to see Kopsa and Jackson looking and laughing at something on Jackson’s iPhone during a break [...]

SHOOT: SUPERNATURAL’s Dean, His Purgatory Pal & the Impala Film at Steveston’s Britannia Shipyards for 8×09

After filming some interior scenes at the Britannia Heritage Shipyards Building in Steveston south of Vancouver yesterday, Supernatural crew set up for the night shoot: a big exterior scene of Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) driving the Impala to this building now re-named the Lefevre Shipyard where he meets up with his Purgatory pal (Ty Olsson) carrying [...]

Kristin Lehman as Vancouver Detective Angie Flynn Filming at the Olympic Village for CTV’s MOTIVE – Updated

If I hadn’t heard that Motive cast Kristin Lehman as divorced, single mother Angie [Flynn], a “feisty female Vancouver detective” solving murders in the midseason 13-episode CTV series, I might not have recognized her today in Olympic Plaza at The Village on False Creek. There’s very little of “Lady Eaton”, as her political campaign consultant Gwen Eaton on The [...]

SHOOT: Youngest in RED WIDOW’s Mob Family Does Own Stunt at Vancouver’s Victory Square – Updated

Inspired by a popular Dutch TV show, midseason ABC series Red Widow is about a San Francisco mobster’s widow, Marta Walraven, forced to replace her husband as head of a crime syndicate after his murder.

Kokanee’s THE MOVIE OUT HERE On Location in Golden Ears Park

Kokanee and Alliance Films invited (social) media to visit them on location deep in Golden Ears Park  yesterday for the upcoming feature film The Movie Out Here. They lured us out with the promise of seeing a real Sasquatch (he has his own VIP trailer) but we saw a “fake” one instead filming a “fake” Kokanee commercial within the real [...]

Where Has CULT Been? Tying Up Rush-Hour Traffic in Langley With A Stop-and-Stare Scene for 1×03

At 4 p.m. today, I saw a @News1130Radio Traffic Tweet:  “Everyone slowing down @232nd to look at the movie trailers @ on side of the road: Backing up past @264th”. Not long after, someone in the neighbourhood informed me this was The CW’s midseason series Cult doing a stunt with a car facing off against a [...]

SHOOT: RED WIDOW’s Radha Mitchell & Lee Tergesen Filming in Yaletown Townhouse – Updated

Midseason ABC series Red Widow started filming its first episode as a series today in a Yaletown townhouse opposite George Weinborn Park. Mob widow Radha Mitchell emerged from the townhouse after some scenes and chatted a bit with co-star Lee Tergesen while waiting for a ride back to circus under the Granville Bridge. She then waved [...]

ARROW Kicks Glass (and Ass) at CBC Vancouver for Ep. 1×03

Upcoming TV series Arrow kicked glass — literally — at CBC Vancouver late Friday night. A Green Arrow stunt double burst through a “candy glass” window on the east wall feet first to the sounds of prop gunfire. Crew had spent the day setting up for this and we were hopeful that star Stephen Amell, [...]

SHOOT: Justin Hartley Films EMILY OWENS M.D. at the University of British Columbia

The University of British Columbia campus is pretty deserted in the summer months so there weren’t many students around yesterday to notice that their Irving K. Barber Learning Centre had been renamed Denver Memorial Hospital again so that hospital drama series Emily Owens, M.D. could film some quick scenes at the main entrance with a prop Denver Memorial ambulance [...]

YVRSHOOT: Charming Pays a Visit to Mr. Gold’s for ONCE UPON A TIME 2×02

How did magic come to make such a mess of Storybrooke in season two of Once Upon a Time? It’s all Rumplestiltskin’s fault, some savvy young fans say. And they’re right. Perhaps that’s why Charming (Josh Dallas) paid Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) a visit in his Mr. Gold Pawnbroker & Antiquities Dealer shop in Steveston south of Vancouver earlier this week. Or [...]

YVRSHOOT: Magic Makes a Big Mess of Steveston’s Moncton Street in ONCE UPON A TIME 2×02

Magic has made a big mess of Main Street in Storybrooke (played by Moncton Street in Steveston south of Vancouver) for modern-day fairy tale series Once Upon a Time in episode two of the second season. Main Street is a disaster zone, with uprooted ashphalt, overturned and smashed-up cars, a downed telephone pole, blown-out windows, and the hull of [...]
