Gearing Up for Sense8 Finale - Possible SPOILERS

Thought this would be an appropriate tweet to begin this thread:

Yay! I expect they will also have a table read.

edit Oh, can you put "possible spoilers" in the thread title like in the previous "gearing up" threads?

Camera equipment getting readied for shipping!

1) These are brand new clapperboards (new color), and they still do use "The Wachowskis" for the director's name. Unless Lilly is returning (unlikely, but not impossible), it is weird they don't just credit Lana. It was the same case for last season, but since the clapperboards were identical to season 1's, I thought perhaps they were just reusing them from the time the sisters were directing together. But this time? Hm...

2) Good to know John Toll returns as DP!

3) Notice the name: "Special II (for the fans)". As Lana would like to call it ("In 2018 there will be another special", she said in her letter).

4) Rivetti also calls it "s2.13" aka the 13th episode of the second season in his post's description. Interesting way of putting it.

5) Sony camera, so I guess they are using again the F55.

6) Ship date is 20/9, but I don't think they will start filming immediately anyway.

1) Yeah I definitely thought they were re-using the clapperboards from Season 1 for Season 2, but I guess we'll see whether or not Lily returns in a few days

3) I wouldn't be surprised if they officially title it "Fan Special" or "Special for the fans" haha

4) Definitely interesting that he put that Though I would assume he may have meant to put "s2.12" since season 2 only has 11 episodes lol!

6) Yeah, just like with season 2 it seems like they will be prepping and possibly training for stunts and fight scenes for a few days (weeks?) before actually filming. IIRC After filming the New Years stuff in Berlin and Christmas stuff in Chicago, they were all in Berlin around mid-February 2016 for prep and then began shooting some sequences (like Sun's prison hanging) sometime in March before heading off for main unit shooting in Mumbai! So filming probably will start filming October 2 like Miguel said! So excited!

I also think this time they might be seeing the script for the first time in Berlin for the table read since no one has posted they have received it. Since it's just 1 script it won't be a problem to familiarize themselves with it within a few days.

We have news from Italy... http://corrieredelmezzogiorno.corrie...e7da03e2.shtml

(Translation: )

Quote:
After the 2016 shooting in Positano, where one of the episodes of the second season was filmed, this year's directors, including Lana and Lilly Wachowski, chose (also) Naples as a set.
^ This is interesting if it really means Lilly is back and they didn't just copy paste the names of the Wachowskis.

Production is looking for a ship(!) to house the 250 cast + crew, because there's no hotel that will fit them:

Quote:
"We try to satisfy all the demands - says the councilor of Culture Nino Daniele - and there is an aspect that delights us because it makes it evident that Naples has become an overbooking tourist destination. The production is in fact looking for logistical accommodation for about two hundred and fifty people who, between artistic cast and skilled workers, will have to stay in the city during the shooting. Well they did not find a place. The hotels are all full - the tourist seasonalization works - so production is trying to fit a ship on which to stay."
New location revealed:

Quote:
Among the sets already required is the Fontanelle cemetery (currently closed for security problems).
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fontanelle_cemetery



which fits with what I had posted on the previous thread about Lana visiting the underground tunnels of Naples. (Also Winslow has posted a picture of skulls from "Catacombs, Naples": https://www.instagram.com/p/BYtFTT9AiRT/ )

Alt source which only has the basic info: http://www.napolitoday.it/cultura/se...et-napoli.html

edit Doona was spotted yesterday I believe (19/09/2017 but Korea date) at the Incheon airport of South Korea, leaving for Berlin:

http://www.diodeo.com/news/view/2438745
http://star.mt.co.kr/stview.php?no=2...2320588966&VRN





How cute is she! Also her luggage isn't that big, which signifies the much shorter than 7+ months shoot they will do this time.

edit Sun's stunt double starts prep!

Sukku Son (Detective Mun) is now in Berlin (likely; somewhere in Germany in any case) for Sense8!

Apparently she also instagrammed this (can't find it myself and yes I checked stories): https://www.instagram.com/p/BZR1xqfFgZ3/




This is definitely Lana's left hand post-season 2 tattoo and it is finally revealed to read "Homo Sensorium"!!! Now to find what she has written on her right hand...

Lana's tattoo

I'm pretty sure it says "Amor Fati" or Love of fate ( https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amor_fati ). It sums up quite well the philosophy of all of the Wachowskis' work, I think.

Could be, I can sort of make it out now that you mention it, but I wouldn't be able to guess it at all on my own. Thanks!

This doesn't fit anyplace else so I'll put it in the current active thread.

Freema Agyeman has a clever doodle up for auction for Epilepsy Action and it shows love for a few of her projects. Can you find all of them?

According to this image posted on reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/Sense8/comm...ber_in_berlin/



production is looking for 6 extras to play SWAT team members for October 4, 6 and 7 in Berlin. So it looks like filming will begin in Berlin first (and why not, since the cast will already be there for the table read, prep etc).

Peter Walpole gets a promotion for the special from Supervising Set Director to Production Designer, replacing Hugh Bateup. https://www.peterwalpole.com/bio

Quote:
2017 – The Sense8 – Finale! After an amazing demand from all Sesne8 fans. Netflix agreed to make a 2 hour special, wrapping up the series. This time I am the Production Designer.
The reason behind it is that likely Bateup had already signed to work on another project before Netflix brought the show back: https://www.instagram.com/p/BU-hb6qA6q3/

Quote:
SA film Corp Adelaide. Home for the next 6 months.
Posted on early June, just 5 days after Netflix announced Sense8's cancellation.

It will be interesting to see who else from the crew won't be able to make it, although from what I've seen I think most of them will be able to return.

Lastly, by September 21, Middleton had yet to go to Berlin or dye/bleach her hair, since she appeared on the BAFTA screening of the episode she is in of PKD's Electric Dreams that day: http://www.bafta.org/whats-on/tv-pre...tric-dreams-qa

https://www.instagram.com/p/BZUPUGynilz/

Quote:


The awesome @Twopencemiddleton at tonight’s @BAFTA screening of @Channel4 excellent #philipkdick #electricdreams #tuppencemiddleton #TheCommuter ‬#philipkdickselectricdreams #sense8 #theimitationgame #jupiterascending #warandpeace
I don't know where she or the others that weren't yet in Berlin the previous days currently are. It is possible there are still several of the 8 that have yet to get there. A theory regarding why the actors behind Will and Sun went there first is that they usually are involved with action scenes, so they need more time to prepare than the other actors. Same goes for detective Mun, based on last season. Riemelt also usually has action scenes to do, but he lives in Berlin anyway. Who knows if he is already prepping with the others.

Rivetti is now in Italy: https://www.instagram.com/p/BZdoHhAgm_7/

Quote:
Oh! Hello Italy!!!!! #italy #🇮🇹 #rome #italiancoast #itsatoughjob #setlife #sense8
Also Ibarra replied to him "See you soon!!!".

Probably setting up stuff to be ready for after the Berlin shoot (unless they shoot in parallel).

Onwumere now in Berlin too, presumably: https://twitter.com/toby_onwumere/st...10859188768770

Oh Berlin, how I missed you.
Sommers was spotted on the Frankfurt airport: https://www.instagram.com/p/BZf52sNFPyY/ dunno if it's for Sense8 (since he wasn't spotted specifically in Berlin, but we know he will be filming for Sense8 anyway, so maybe he was getting to Berlin?)
