@AndrewBikichky @UxueRazkin The script is written before shooting. The actors rehearse
and the director blocks the scene, which becomes a plan for the shots

‏@AndrewBikichky “@DDZeny: @AndrewBikichky How many cameras are working on Castle this season? Great Job Andrew! Xx from Spain” 2 cameras at least every day

@AndrewBikichky “@CourtOsen: @AndrewBikichky How long do the actors have to rehearse a scene?” perhaps a few times, depending on the scene

‏@AndrewBikichky “@betsyang: @AndrewBikichky is shooting in film less expensive than digital? which do you prefer?” most of us prefer film. Digital has many$

‏@AndrewBikichky “@IreneB92: @AndrewBikichky How much footage is filmed on average for each episode?” around 100,000 feet

@AndrewBikichky “on scenes where we can see their feet and floor, how do they know were 2 stand without the colored marks” its a part of their craft to know

@AndrewBikichky “@avand669:Is it awkward filming love scenes or nude scenes?" extra care is taken to protect the actors from 2 many eyes during those times

‏@AndrewBikichky “@betsyang: 4x23 rooftop fight camera from afar, u in a helicopter or another building?” separate unit shot that part, #xfiles pilot tho Wink

@AndrewBikichky “@jeremiahjw: @AndrewBikichky Are the background plates used in the driving shots digital or film?” digital


‏@AndrewBikichky Regarding digital vs. film queries: let me answer in parts and examples. It's a huge topic and hard to sum up in 128 characters. Gimme time

@AndrewBikichky Dvs.F: an electronic eyepiece is beaming a partial resolution image with square pixels into my eye at a very close distance with small delay

@AndrewBikichky Dvs.F: an optical eyepiece is like looking thru a widely variable telescope, illuminated only by the light coming in thru the lens. Organic

@AndrewBikichky Dvs.F: optical eyepiece has no delay, I see everything only thru glass, no digitization and degraded reproduction. Looking at real life.

@AndrewBikichky “@Experiment_627: @AndrewBikichky What happens to the films of unused footage? Like after editing, where do they go?” to the vault

‏@AndrewBikichky “@Ninangel567: @experiment_627 do they ever release any of it's contents” not likely. It would be like a band releasing every song outtake.

‏@venice4change Rarely. Mostly I just watch dailies MT @CindyRrrrck If U edit an ep does that mean u observe actual filming as it happens to get ideas?

@venice4change I'm one of 3 editors MT @Ninangel567: @venice4change are you the only one who edits or do several of you do the editing?

‏@venice4change @AnneCe72 3 editors on rotation. Each cuts every 3rd ep. I'm cutting ep 501, so I'll cut 504, 507, 510 etc.Usually only work on 1 at a time

@AndrewBikichky “@SnguvuM: how many scenes do you guys a day on average?” page count is a better indicator: average 6-9 pages range

@AndrewBikichky “@betsyang: do you have a Castle unit that shoots inserts of NYC or do you guys just get them from a vendor?” believe it's a bit of both

@AndrewBikichky “@betsyang: on closed sets who are allowed on the set? average # of people?”ALWAYS a minimum. Depends on scene and cameras used. 3 - 9 range

@AndrewBikichky “@AussieJam1: do you guys shoot at Paramount often?”every once and a while.

@AndrewBikichky “@mama_fillion: When do you guys film? Referring to times of the year.” mid-July thru april

@AndrewBikichky “@AlwaysCastleFan: Director and cinematographer discuss the blocking and coverage angles and work it out with the operators.


@AndrewBikichky “@Mylouze2712: inserts are usually saved for later to maximize time with actors on 1st unit and sometimes they find they want more in editng

More BTS set pictures from the Castle Art Department

(This one is my favorite!)

@CastleArtDept A small but intricate set we built. Let's just say we had a lot of Dim Sum 'research' the week we designed it. #castle http://pic.twitter.com/EjkBn0Gn

@Castlegrip Rickshaw can be used with a Stedicam or hand held camera. This one has disc brakes and is really light for fast moves.

@AndrewBikichky Been a few questions regarding colors on #Castle. As far as photography goes, we color the lights more than color the image at the camera.

@AndrewBikichky The Gaffer Jono gels the lights to correct color and to ad specific colors. At the camera we only correct the light to match the film type

@AndrewBikichky Final look of ep is done by a colorist at post production house. Tony Smith works with Rob & Bill on the final color timing. There is more..

@AndrewBikichky But before the shooting, color is addressed by @CastleArtDept and @RedCarpetLuke in how the sets are designed and by wardrobe selection.

@AndrewBikichky So the striking colors of #Castle are the result of a range of individual dept head contributions under the guidance of Rob & Andrew.

@venice4change All the time. RT @evilapprentice: Is it ever hard to do cuts? Like, something needs to go for time/story but it's just too good?

@venice4change Can't think of any RT @nevyn_r: @venice4change is there any particular ep you'd like to see released as an extended, director's cut on dvd?
