The TV crew was early for they were already setting up equipment at the filming base besides the Bec's Beauty Salon by the time I passed by on my way to Westona Train Station at 7.50 a.m. There were quite many people inside the beauty salon. I presume they were the extras playing the salon customers.
Several TV vans at Harrington Square's carpark
There are good reasons why Harrington Square is popular with film makers. What were easily noticeable are the big vans used to ferry the video and audio equipments. I am perplexed why so many vehicles and heavy equipment are needed to shoot just a salon scene. Nevertheless, they were there. Transporting the equipments is made so easy by a carpark that is right in front of the shops and that can easily accommodate several large vehicles.
Furthermore, there is ample open space at Harrington Square to set up a filming/equipment base or station, without causing much interference to local businesses and residents. Harrington Square is a rather quiet area with not much human traffic while some degree of crowd control may be needed at busy filming locations.
When I returned home from work on Tuesday at around 5.45 p.m., the TV crew was starting to pack up. I was a bit disappointed yesterday as the crew was gone by the time I reached home.
