On location at a SaskTel network facility, Set decorator Dan Crozier (left) confers with Joanna Volhoffer (wardrobe) and Erica Hillier (makeup and hair).
We're not quite sure why Java Post Director of Photography Jack Tunnicliffe had to be kept in a cage at this location, but maybe that's for the best.
Director Stephen Hall looks over Jack's shoulder as they capture a shot looking through a rack of electronic gear.
Moving to a recording studio location, Stephen sits in front of the camera before our actor is brought onto the set.
Set dec Dan gets busy with a utility knife and some black tape. There are very few set decoration problems that can't be solved with a utility knife and some black tape.
While all this preparation is going on, Jack waits for his cue to roll the camera.
While our actor performs in the background, Stephen and Carl Sheldon, the creative director for MGM Communications, watch the scene unfold in the monitor.
