I was on TV again: Falling Skies 2x09

My second TV appearance! 

I filmed Falling Skies over two days back in February or something...I don't actually remember. Anyway, the episode finally aired, so I got to see if I made it in.

I did! I made it into FOUR SHOTS!

Look at me noticing that people are coming down the broken escalator...have you ever scene better acting?

This is the closest I ever get to camera. I was either going for serious or bored here...or perhaps I was seriously bored. :P I kid, it was actually kind of fun. Usually you aren't allowed to look at the actors, but given the setting of the scene, we actually got to watch them the whole time, so it was more like seeing a play than filming a show.

Two wide-shots that caught me.

And that's it!

The work I did on my second day didn't make it into the show at all - which kind of sucks, because I bruised my knee doing that crap. Ah well. Also, as I recall it was a day where we came in and they made us wait and wait - for like 3 hours, and then film for five minutes, and then wait for another hour or two, and then film for ten minutes...and the whole time I'm being paid, so I don't care...but then I look at the shots they used from it, and really, they only needed like two people, and if they had organized their shooting schedule better, they could have saved so much money. But that's show business for you, I guess. And hey, I GOT that money, so I shouldn't point out their inefficientcies (and really, it is par for the course with these projects). Anyway, I enjoyed my second day, even if it didn't make it into the show - that was the day that I discovered Terry O'Quinn playing Spanish guitar in a dark corner of the shopping centre.

For those interested, we filmed in a shopping centre in Surrey that is still under construction. 

ETA: By the way, I'm wearing a costume - not my own clothes. Just in case you're wondering if I actually own a hideous striped pink sweater.

Fun times!

ETA: I also have to decide if I'm going to keep doing extra work. It's fun occasionally, but it can also be REALLY annoying/boring/ill-timed...and I can really only committ to one-day shoots (which Falling Skies was not)...and yeah...I make enough at my real job now that I don't need to do it. So, decisions decisions...
