The Notorious D.V.B.

2011_09_DonValleyBrickworks

This is a behind-the-scenes pic from a production I was on in August that shot around the kilns at The Don Valley Brickworks.

If you haven’t visited the DVB you really should. It’s an amazing historical/industrial space. But if you’re thinking of shooting there be sure to bring tons of extension cords (the longer the better). All the electrical outlets are along the building’s perimeter walls, and not all of them work.

On our first morning at the location we were delayed getting in because a film crew from the SWAT Team TV show Flashpoint was still wrapping. They had been shooting an action sequence the night before and the ground was left littered with spent shell casings.

And you thought your sets were tough.
