A huge thank you to Rex, the head honcho camera guy, what the heck is your actual title?, on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition for leading the tour around all the cool stuff while we were shooting when the show came to North Carolina a few weeks ago to film. (Rex and I are actually discussing plans for a very cool new project that I’ll be sharing more details about soon.)
The actual show will be airing this week – so look for a lot of these scenes as they unfold on video.
In the meantime, enjoy scenes from a massively cold and rainy and muddy and oh-so-cold long, fun, long day …
(have to start out with these two cuties waiting for the limousine to pull up :)
I protected my camera every way I could, but I never quite gave in to this:
Was interesting to watch the team run out, run back, run out, run back – get quite a workout at each filming!
Ty and the Design Team…
Rex, nearly always with a smile…
And Rex’s son, hard at work (quite an operation they have going in those portable structures) and some sweet ones with he and his mommy, Susan Ballard (also a fabulous makeup artist)
Rachel grabbed this one of me, quite a balance to shoot from where the operators were shooting and not achieve a concussion from the camera cranes!
The gorgeous Rachel Garrison :)
The beautisimous Lisa Walter :)
And that one guy ….
And the silliness during filming is quite a lot of fun :)
Did I mention the rain & mud & cold?
From the show part of the show ….
See how far that line stretches back? We were all in a field in the pouring rain waiting for shuttles to pick us up, two at a time (or so it felt) ;)
And a couple outtakes – why do Rachel and Lisa look fabulous and I look like I froze 2 hours earlier?
Thanks, Rex & Susan for such special attention :)
