We were shooting on location here in toronto at the Waverly Hotel at Spadina and College. It was decided to shoot at the actual location for 2 days and then to move the crew back to the studio where we would build a section of the set.
The first step was to get some detailed photos and measurements. The Key Scenic painter and Construction Manager met me at the location and we did our research getting measurements and matching colours.
and situate it within the studio. Crew access and fire regulations are taken into account.
Plan 1 below.
The set went up very quickly.
All in all, a very believable set that matched the location.
