FS Freed Filming Alexander Street/SIP EXTERIOR June 20, 2016
Fifty Shades production had an early start day on June 20th with filming on Alexander Street and the SIP exterior sidewalk. They had planned to do 4 separate scenes during the day. I was able to watch two of the scenes after I arrived at noon time. The earlier scenes had included the use of the Audi R8 with Dakota and Jamie. The second scene was with Jamie arriving at SIP to pick up Dakota with his CGQ Audi Q7. There was a passionate kiss on the sidewalk before getting into the SUV. The costumes worn were the same as seen filmed earlier at the Cecil Green House on the UBC campus.
I drove from Portland, OR early in the morning to arrive as soon as possible at the filming. While driving towards Alexander St. in Vancouver BC, when I glanced up in the rearview mirror, the Audi R8 was right behind me leaving the set. When I arrived they were filming a scene with Dakota and Brant. It looked like she was leaving SIP and he was escorting her to the back seat of the Q7. She was wearing pants, blouse and jacket. I did notice she was wearing her wedding ring. Brant was very dapper in a suit and tie. He was standing on the sidewalk between filming and chatted with fans and crew. At one point Dakota and Brant were speaking with director James Foley. Dakota left soon after the scene was finished filming.
The last scene was played out with the SEQ security Q7 parked across the street of the SIP entrance with Jamie standing against the SUV on his phone looking up at the upper windows. Max Martini was on set in the passenger seat and also standing on the sidewalk. There was another security member in the driver seat of the Q7. After Jamie arrived he spent some time walking around while they set up the scene. He found that he needed some sunglasses and was seen trying some on. The hair/makeup woman were also cleaning up his jacket with a lint brush, and fixing his hair before the filming began. It seems that these short scenes will fit with other previous filming and help to create an amazing movie.
Jamie and Dakota filmed a short video for Facebook from the Boundary Bay Airport with the GEH Jet in the background. When I took a closer look I saw that Jamie was wearing the same clothing jacket and shirt from the last filming scene from todays filming. I think he must have been waiting for Ana at SIP and whisks her off to the GEH Jet to Aspen.
Note the the PURGATORY sign in the window at SIP to the right. It is now being published at SIP for Fifty Shades Freed.
Have you noticed? Christians CGQ Q7 has different wheels than the Securitys SEQ Q7. There have actually been four of these Audi Q7’s on set.
“I think I need some sunglasses”
Maybe try another pair….
Christian Grey Perfection!
Could this be Prescott?
End of the day Jamie went over to voice record for his phone conversation:
