The second part of the day for the 2012 Syfy Digital Press Tour, after visiting the set of Defiance and a quick lunch, we traveled across town to the Cinespace studios to visit the set of Warehouse 13, and meet up with the cast and our friend from last year’s tour, Eddie McClintock (Agent Pete Lattimer).
This was such an interesting experience since it was a place I was intensely familiar with, if only from watching every episode. I didn’t know what to expect in particular, but I was expecting more green-screen setups with smallish sets. Much to my surprise, this was not the case.
We arrived in the lobby, and were offered hot coffee/tea/cider and cookies as soon as we walked in the door. I grabbed a hot cider and a cookie – I did not realize that chocolate cookies with bacon are some sort of thing in Canada…love both, but jury is still out on the combination! But as soon as I got mine, we were split into two groups to visit their latest set build in Studio B, led by show runner Jack Kenny and joined by production designer Franco de Cotiis. The new set is for an upcoming episode that it set in a facility located under the Niagara Power Station. We didn’t get much more detail than that, but it was clear that someone had been living there some time in the past – and the corpse on the bed seems to indicate they died quite a while ago…Franco said it took them about 5 days to build – which is amazing given the amount of detail that went into it! I realized having a hot drink on a set was probably a bad idea (especially since I wanted to take pictures too) so I chugged it, and probably burned my tongue 🙂
On the next Revolution the choice is tough. Without medicine Nora will die… but every cure has its cost. Sneak a peek at the next episode as the fate of Nora and Charlie lies in Miles’ hands. What will he do? Check out this sneak peek of next Monday’s all-new Revolution at 10/9c on NBC!
