Alex and I had learned we lived close enough together that we'd arranged for Alex to pick me up for the morning shoot.
We arrived at 8:20am at the
for our 8:30am call.
The crew was setting up, and we got our first shot in around 9:30am'ish; we wrapped at 4:45pm.
As early as the audition, it was discussed, considering the complexity of the script,
with technobabble to make a Trekkie blush, that cue cards
(or poster paper),
be written up with the varied terminology.
At the shoot, Alex's coverage was done first, allowing me to deal with the script, his response lines being far easier than mine.
I thought I was doing better, going over them and over them, but the complexity was such I requested some way to be able to access the numerous therapy terms.
They managed to find a White Board, and I wrote out the terms so I could do my coverage.
Understadably, the script doesn't end the same way in the Python sketch;
arrives to exposit the actual events, and there's a cute, bittersweet Moment.
One unscripted aspect I did not anticipate being added was Rafael's utilizing the talented Sitar playing, had his three main cast members dancing.
Considering my cool-bowtie, my dancing was a combination of "just going with" the music, and the Doctor "dancing" at Rory and Amy's Wedding...
Everyone on set conveyed being impressed with my performance, my struggling memorizing the mega-terms notwithstanding.
Rafael understood my dilema, having little to nearly no time with which to remember these therapy titles.
He also stressed that he would be making film projects for social services, and would be calling on Alex and me.
