We’re five days deep into prep on Once Upon A Time here in Vancouver. It’s been a lot of fun so far.
Sure there’s been the usual meetings, casting sessions, driving around looking at possible locations (including seeing about a hundred bald eagles at one location).
Because this show has so many fantastical elements, it requires a lot of conceptual art and artistic renderings of props, wardrobe, sets, and visual effects. It’s the first show I’ve worked on where I’ve gotten to work with a storyboard artist to visualize a few action and VFX sequences. So that’s been fun – and fun to work with this team that’s been doing it for six years.
Two more days of prep and then we start shooting. Here is another photo of Vancouver because why not.
