LMBA EXTRAS STAR IN RESIDENT ALIEN EPISODE
Posted September 1, 2021
RESIDENT ALIEN EXTRAS
PERFORMANCE . . . PUNCTUALITY . . . POLITENESS
They did not come out of a corn field . . . . . . . they had to drive through traffic to get to a Little League diamond
Thanks to the 19 players, two coaches, and two umpires who participated in two shootings for the upcoming episodes of the popular TV series Resident Alien. LMBA players, coaches, and umpires served as extras while three cast members took the starring roles in a baseball game.
I PLAYED HERE WHEN I WAS TWELVE . . . . .
All scenes took place at Chris Zuehlke Memorial Park in North Vancouver – surprisingly, the field is a Little League diamond, so things were very cosey when the cast and extras were on the field. The size of the field was the first of many surprises – during one of the scenes, the game was interrupted by an alien space ship crashing in right field.
LMBA EXTRAS MAKE GIGANTIC IMPRESSION
Peter and Jovan looked like giants on the mound and they brought some pretty intimidating heat from 44 feet away. Matt was a speed demon running the 60 foot bases. Aidan threw some impressive 150 foot “ropes” from a shallow center field. Kenny and Ward were outstanding in their roles as coaches – mainly herding their teams on and off the set. Brad and Dan, as umpires, got to “punch out” some of the cast members. When not in uniform, players also served as enthusiastic fans in the bleachers.
THANKS, GUYS . . . . . WELL DONE!!!
Watching the coordination of everything that goes into filming a short scene was educational – camera angles and close ups necessitated the use of a small set rather than a full-sized diamond.
Our guys were complimented for their performance, punctuality, and politeness especially from the costume/wardrobe department. We have asked the production department of Resident Alien to let us know when the episodes will be aired.
Well done guys!
