On day 9, the snow was up to our knees. Where was all this snow when it was needed for the luge?
(Our script supervisor Tiffany Wong trying to keep her pants dry.)
On day 10, we went into Blue Mountain village, which was really nice (and a lot warmer!). We had a restaurant scene, a scene at the Bark & Fitz pet store, and then miscellaneous shots around the village.
The next two days were spent on “The Art Farm” in Duntroon, ON, a beautiful farm owned by an arist and a producer. On the first day, we had a trained raccoon – apparently the only trained raccoon in Ontario.
We didn’t see many of the farm animals, but the llama did come over to say hi to our locations manager.
And that brings me to my last day on set. Day 13, the big strip club scene. Again, this was a closed set so I wasn’t allowed inside for most of the day. In the morning, we did some shots outside, and then we had a green screen for a dream sequence scene.
Our strip club scene was set in an abandoned gas station turned strip club… or strip club turned gas station, I’m not really sure. Either way, it didn’t look like anything until a few hours before we started shooting. Brian Garvey and his team turned this abandoned building into a bar, and it looked awesome.
Overall, it was a great experience and I met a lot of awesome people. Hopefully soon I will be able to post some publicity stills!
