The Details

(filming supposed to start at 8:30am, but begun after 9am)

I figured I should put in my two cents considering I was there for the whole day as an extra :) It was a lot of fun, even though it was long and a bit chilly at times.

What I can mention are just random visuals that I still have: Mike as Secret Agent Man; Dave-o as a businessman, looking like he just walked out of an office on Bay Street (just around the corner from where we were shooting), cell phone, briefcase and all; Murray walking over to the Sad Girl all full of hope, and then getting rejected (and the crowd goes "awwwwwwwww") and stomping on those poor flowers *g*; and the guys reacting to the earthquake ;>

Actually, reacting to the earthquake was one of the first shots I was in - the guys didn't have all the fun :) It's really interesting seeing just how much work goes into making a video for a song - hard to believe that the final product will be less than 5mins long considering the shoot (including lunch) was 13 hrs. I can't wait to see how it all comes together in the final edit :)

From MC:

Just got back from downtown where Fruvous shot the Sad Girl video, once again with Black Walk Productions. There was only one location (Front St, next to Union Station), and the crew/cast/extras shot from 8:30am to about 9:30pm. Oof. Long day. I don't want to give away too much, but this, in my opinion (and others') will be great. Better than IWHO anyway. This has a plot (and actual acting), and it involved a girl in a bubble, Dave-o in a suit, Fordy as Secret Agent Man and a rejected Murray stomping on flowers. And an earthquake. Can't wait to see the final product.
