Well, this is terribly awkward: they’re filming the 50 Shades of Grey movie at the building where I work.
Sam and I went to the office on Sunday, to sneak in an 8-foot tall hot pink Christmas tree for Business Reasons. When we arrived, the downtown core was teeming with film crews as multiple products jostled each other for space – and lucky us, we discovered that Bentall 5 had been rebranded with handcuffs and silk ties and moist mommy porn:
Things could be worse, I suppose – from what I remember of the books, none of the sloppy sex takes place in the office building. Still, I plan on wiping down all surfaces I use. There may be .. residue.
While 50 Shades was filming at our building, Continuum was filming across the street. We got fake rain and people in business suits, THEY got cop cars and SWAT guys with plastic guns:
Around the corner, another production was filming by the Vancouver Club. Not sure what that one was, but it appears that the business epicentre of Vancouver turns into one giant film set on weekends. I don’t normally visit the office outside regular hours, but I was glad to see so much going on .. and hey, it’s not like they’re filming sex scenes at my desk. Or drinking my Diet Coke. Both of those things are a HARD LIMIT (see what I did there).
