Cody Rock – Down, wet and dirty

July 27, 2010

In my previous blog post on AnD, I introduced the cast of Cody Rock and showcased some of the stuff we did outside work.

Since we’re at the last episode of the kid’s drama this week, it’s time to check out some of the more exciting behind-the-scenes footages!

Cody Rock in Kuching, Sarawak

So we were based in a rainforest resort, set on the shore of the South China Sea, which although a visual treat on screen, but not always the best condition for filming.

First, we got to be flexible with the available spaces!

Morning makeup session!

Here’s the resort cafe, where we have a meals, which we use as a makeshift makeup area.

Sometimes we do our touching up on location too, like on the beach…

Makeshift storage space

and use random shacks as equipment holding areas…

Secondly, we must be prepared for getting down, wet and dirty.

Such as receiving a kick from a pair of sandy boots!

Knocked out!

And falling flat on the sand afterwards.

Or going into the waters…

And getting your shoes completely iky!

Thankfully the crew were really sweet with us, ensuring our welfare were well taken care of. The casts even had assistants carrying umbrellas for us whenever we are off screen.

Plus there were days whereby we shot comfortably indoors.

Luxury in the wilderness

Or had our comfort items within reach.

I miss you Nicole, Scott, Shannon and Firdaus!

It’s not often that we get to shoot an entire series in a tropical rainforest by the beach, for a good number of weeks. Which means limited access to the internet, friends, family and many other things we are used to in the city. While it took a bit of effort to get used to the various conditions presented, it was really fun, and everyone got really close to each other, in a sort period of time!
