Arrived yesterday in Toronto for my second directing job in Canada of 2017. It’s also my second straight job of working on a fictionalized version of Washington, DC – just finished editing Scandal (#Scandal100) and now starting on the penultimate episode of Designated Survivor‘s first season.
Today I walked through the sets and it’s a little disorienting going from one version of the White House’s West Wing to another, let me tell you. But a lot of fun to play in this version of Washington for the first time. More updates to come, my five readers.
Other news: My portfolio site is up and running again, updated with (nearly all) the television episodes I’ve directed: http://www.SharatRaju.com. Enjoy!
Finally updated my portfolio website. It’ll eventually replace http://www.sharatraju.com but for now, if you’re curious, go to http://sharatraju.onfabrik.com/ and check it out!
The episode of NCIS: New Orleans – “The Last Stand” – airs Tuesday night on CBS at 10pm (Eastern/Pacific)!
I couldn’t find a real promo for the episode, but I did find this funny video of promotional stills set to music. Enjoy!
Final day. Always bittersweet leaving the family. Strange day with three units shooting at the same time so I started the day with one exterior scene and then had a 6-hour break in the day before finishing a final interior night scene. It was a lot of fun but now it’s on to post production.
Long day at two different locations with many of our main actors. To quote Kerry Washington:
Yep. Final day tomorrow.
One day off in our production – there are two other units shooting simultaneously – so we spent Tuesday scouting. We just shot all day on stage. Got a set visit from my family so that was fun – filmed in our OPA set for most of the day.
