 This collection had its genesis when I started photographing Vancouver area ar shoots in the summer of 2010 to get over a lengthy post-Olympics funk. Film and also TV productions prefer Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Supernatural, Fringe, Once top top a Time and ours own Continuum and Primeval: brand-new World showcase our city in comparable fashion and also sometimes placed a celebrity actor or two in the frame. Find more on my daily blog yvrshoots.com.

So Greek gods room running rampant in contemporary America, waging war and fathering children, like young Percy Jackson who discovers in the an initial film adaption, The Lightning Thief. that the dad he never knew is the Greek god Poseidon. In the second of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians franchise, Percy and also pals set out come retrieve the golden fleece in the Sea the Monsters to conserve their Camp Half-Blood, the summer camp where children that the gods are trained and also protected.

It"s been funny to watch part of the filming that the sequel these past two months, especially on the Camp Half-Blood sets in Robert Burnaby Park in Burnaby, developed on the tennis courts and also in the adjoining woods. Teen fans that Logan Lerman, who stars together Percy Jackson, tracked him everywhere the city on Twitter and also flooded Tumblr with photos-with, taken mostly in that park in May.

Joining Logan Lerman in this collection of adventures based on Greek mythology are Brandon T. Jackson together his ideal pal and also protector Grover Underwood, a satyr that hides his goat horns under toques and his goat legs v crutches; Alexandra Daddario together Annabeth Chase, daughter that the Greek god Athena; and Douglas Smith together his newly-discovered half-brother Tyson, a very tall, one-eyed cyclops.

As in the very first film, the funny for adults is the casting of the Greek god parents. Geek God Nathan Fillion theatre Greek god Hermes, the god of thieves, travellers and messengers, dressed as a UPS courier in shorts. Right here he is peeking the end of the prop The UPS Store collection they developed in so late April in ~ the edge of Pender and also Abbott in downtown Vancouver. Percy Jackson and pals cross Pender (dressed as Monroe St NW in the ar of Columbia), get in The UPS store and line up in ~ the respond to to pick up a package i beg your pardon apparently offers them what lock need to head into the Sea of monsters to find the gold fleece.

For once, the pan gathered near collection weren"t clamouring because that Logan Lerman. They want "Captain Tightpants", together one Fillion fan yelled out. An additional got she Firefly DVD signed as Fillion graciously took time to meet and sign because that fans three times throughout that downtown shoot.

Also brand-new to the sequel is Leven Rambin, last viewed on the big screen as Glimmer in crate office smash The Hunger Games. She plays Clarisse La Rue, the daughter that Ares, the god that war, that is offered the quest to retrieve the gold fleece, ns watched her show off some of her fighting an abilities in a scene v Logan Lerman, Brandon T. Jackson and Alexandra Daddario from above the wall of the ampitheatre set in Robert Burnaby Park, packed through parents keeping an eye on their teenage extras and vuvuzelas sitting on the steps.

Percy Jackson: Sea of monster filmed on this Camp Half-Blood set for two to three greatly sunny main in May. I regret no returning come Robert Burnaby Park after the begin of filming there to check out Logan Lerman, Brandon T. Jackson (goat horns showing), Alexandra Daddario, Leven Rambin and Douglas blacksmith training or fighting off colchis bulls. I additionally missed see Luke Abel together the Percy Jackson nemesis Luke Castellan, the boy of Hermes (Nathan Fillion) and Stanley Tucci as the Greek god of alcohol Dionysus and director the Camp Half-Blood sitting under to dinner through the young demigods. I go come ago for the main cast"s critical day the filming in the park on might 22nd, but torrential rain and also several smoke makers obscured the scene of them eating supper together.

Earlier on, ns did a quick photo to walk of the cabins in the woods, which ended up being a favourite weekend attraction for tourists to the park.

I"m glad the main actors got in part training before and after Robert Burnaby Park because it appeared that every step they filmed in downtown Vancouver dressed as Washington, D.C., involved running. Below are Logan Lerman"s Percy Jackson, Alexandra Daddario"s Annabel and Douglas Smith"s Tyson running to rescue Brandon T. Jackson"s Grover from part young thugs in a smoke-machine-filled alley off Granville Street. Lerman obtained to carry a knife for this scene.
