Supergirl's Director Tweets... was created by lfan
A rather encouraging tweet from the director, Glen Winter, himself the other day:

"OK. After today i'm pretty damn sure i believe a girl can fly. @itsmmbenoist #Supergirl"

I didn't expect him to say "this sucks", but it's still exciting nonetheless.....

Short Story

"Okay everyone" said Director Glen Winters to the crew "We're goiing to film all the flying stuff for the first episode -- we have 5 pages to do today, but I think we can do it, if we work smart."
*****

"Okay guys, we have spent 3 hours lighting this greenscreen, are we sure about the LEDS?"

"They're the best really for getting a conistent tone." said the gaffer.

"Okay then. Let's get Benoist on set."

"Thats good cause she's been rather impatient all morning."
*****

15 Minutes latter

"So let's get you in the flying harness."

"Alright." said Mellisa.

"This is going to be kinky."
*****

15 Minutes latter

"Why did we put her in tights?"

"It was Attwood's idea." said Winters " "I don't see how it could be a problem. I mean they're just nylons."

"Well, we didn't think we can fit this clearly."

15 Minutes latter

"Okay, I think we may have to keep working, but we're going to have to CGI the nylolons in latter. Let's get her locked in."

15 minutes latter

"Okay how do you feel up there, Melissa?"

"Wow, I can seem my house from here." she said suspended 4 feet above the greenscreen floor.

The room laughed.

"Now, I want you to look down with awe at the city below you."
*****

15 minutes latter

"Take 4." said the AC.

"Let see, a little more action Mellissa - I can believe it, but i want a little more."

"Wow, my roof is dirty."

The room laughed a little less.
*****

15 minutes latter

"... and Cut" said Winters "I think we got that angle ... now, we're going to have to do that from above."

"You know" said the AD, "It would make sense we do all the flying stuff from the side from this poisition before we move her again."

"I guess that makes sense - so what shot should we do."

"Lets have a conversation about it." said the DP

"It's okay. I am going to fly over and see the Dodgers' game" said Mellisa

"Hum, it's not baseball season." said The DP
*****

15 minutes latter

"If we do the climax now, it will save time I think. There is the complicated cape moves, but it's simpler than the banking shoots."

"I disagree." said the UPM

15 minutes latter

"Well, we're going to have to do some relighting to get the hallo effect. "

"How long will it take?"

"Oh ... 45 minutes."

60 minutes latter

"Wow, I think you really got that." saiid Winters

"How long is it going to be in the pilot?"

"Maybe 3 seconds."

"Let's move on to the next setup." said the AD

"How long to switch the lighting?"

"20 minutes."

25 minutes latterr

"Let's break for lunch."

"Hey, can I get down from here?" said Mellisa.

"Oh geesee, how long have you been up here?"

"Well, let's just say: booh are my arms tired."

The set politely tittered.
*****

45 Minutes latter

"Those weren't bad burritos." sad the Makeup girls.

"I can't eat them" said Melissa "way to much spandex for Chipotle."

"Let's try to get you up there while we relight things." said Winters

5 hours latter

"Okay, I think we got about 2 and a half minutes of usable footage of her in the sky - this is going to be rough, but i think we're going to do it."

"The rest is probably going to be CGI anyway." said the UPM.

"Hey" said the DIT guy "Did a rogh little test of the greenscreen removal - add some temp screen ..."

The crew looked at it.

"That's really good actually - liked the blue rim lights." said the Director Winters to the Gaffer

"Thanks." said the DP.

"Wow maybe they I'll believe a girl can fly."

"Hey can you get me down from here." said Mellissa "I am really going to need to do some yoga tomorrow."
