Syfy BTS Press Tour – Helix Set Tour Part 2

Part 1 can be seen here.
I was able to attend this year’s Syfy Digital Press Tour (or Behind-the-Scenes Tour) in Montreal where most of our day was on the set of Helix, Syfy’s newest series coming in January 2014!

After the set tour, we had a Q&A session with the cast. Here are some videos and photos from the event.

First, here’s the intro for the cast members:

Then, each cast member briefly discussed his or her role on the show.

I was able to attend this year’s Syfy Digital Press Tour (or Behind-the-Scenes Tour) in Montreal where most of our day was on the set of Helix, Syfy’s newest series coming in January 2014!

Some of the areas are still under embargo, so I’m not allowed to post those photos yet. But here’s what I can show…

We started our tour through the corridors of the Helix station. I was able to catch it on video, so that it feels like you’re actually there:

And here’s a live action scene in a lab that we got to see up close:

Here are some various shots of the labs:

Syfy BTS Press Tour – Montreal – Day 1

A couple of weeks ago I was able to attend the Syfy BTS (Behind the Scenes) Press Tour in Montreal, featuring set tours of Being Human and Helix. But the night before was cocktails and dinner with talent from Haven, Defiance, and Ghost Hunters. This is one of my favorite parts of the weekend, as it was last year in Toronto. It’s a casual time to get to know one another in a relaxed setting. I sat next to Adam Berry and Amy Bruni from Ghost Hunters. We had a great time with a lot of stories exchanged and even more laughs.

Here I am with Jason Hawes, Steve Gonsalves, Adam Berry, and Amy Bruni from Ghost Hunters:

Warehouse 13 Set Tour!

Warehouse13 Set Tour

Last October I was able to go on the Syfy Digital Press Tour. The highlight of the event, for me, was getting to go on the set of Warehouse 13 and meet the cast.

Here are some pics from around the Warehouse!
I had to create slideshows when Flickr messed with the photo settings. Each of the cards below the artifacts has something unique to say about each item. Some of them are quite clever. Sorry that the quality isn’t better. Half of them (the better ones) were taken with my iPhone.

And here I am in and around the office.

And lastly, here are some shots of the boarding house.
