A little behind the scenes snippet for Chapter 3:

This particular scene shown in the image below was at the 432 studio garage where about 30-40% of our set locations took place. The size of this “studio” is approximately 20×10 and we managed to cram a lot of set dressing, building, props, camera and lighting gear along with a number of people into this little space. This particular scene for Chapter 3 took approximately 8 days to complete.

The set build took about a week and was made up with everything we had scavenged over the years from our own and others private collection. We built this set with foam core, wood, boxes, pallets and threw in some pipes, bedroom closet doors, old keyboards, chairs, you name it – anything that looked “cool” or odd for the fitting environment. We even found a discarded photo-copying machine in a back alley one rainy day. We loaded it up and hauled it to the studio to break down for parts – which, by the way, was used in every way down to the last bolt and wire. The toner and oil was a massacre to clean out. We even scavenged a cat litter box – so keep an eye out and see if you can spot it in the upcoming chapters. ;) Everything then received a paint job and we were ready to go. We rounded up our crew, some cast and spent another 3 days filming the scene. After the shoot, we would clear out the garage and prep for the next set build. Good times.
