B-City Webseries – Season 2 – Filming, October 15, 2017

I was on-set again for filming the second season of Jolie East-Miji’s “B-City” Webseries.  My on-set role this season: Key Production Assistant. Off-set role: an executive producer.  I observed activity for a scene featuring characters Bre and Brandon:  lighting, blocking, rehearsal, and the actual filming.

Blocking a scene is simply “working out the details of an actor’s moves in relation to the camera.” – The 5 Stages of Blocking a Scene

I assisted setting up the room by covering the windows, as the scene is at night but filming was done during the day.  I also helped with the lighting, holding a diffuser in front of a light source.  The diffuser I used is a translucent fabric designed to break up and evenly distribute the light from the source.

Here is a video showing blocking/rehearsal of the scene. There is plastic on the couch and adjacent chair, leading to some funny sounds.  There are also some behind-the-scenes photos. All media from the author.

I will continue to document the production phase of “B-City” in subsequent posts.
