Hello Internet;I’m back on set for QOTA. Remember that algae I was making last week? well, here it is on set. A big thank you to Theatre New Brunswick and Red Rover Cider for lending us science glassware.

So, building a set is a lot of work. What you see on screen is not the same as what we see surrounding the frame. This shot has filters over the fluorescent light bulbs, curtains with diva lights to diffuse the lights and a dolly track on apple boxes and pancakes to create a slow push. The boom guy is off screen but catching every shuffle the crew makes and the actors are repeating the scenes over and over again so the crew can catch it from all angles.
