Even if you haven’t started the series yet, it is never too late to begin now. There’s enough on Netflix’ shelf for everyone.
In January 2016, Amy Poehler’s masterpiece, the full series of Parks & Recreation, will finally air online on Netflix. You can watch all or some, but I must recommend a hearty “all.” If you already have, like me, this is bringing up some pretty good memories and looking at the nostalgia on NBC.com will make you very happy.
On my channel, Parks and Recreation can always air on Tuesdays at 8/7c.
I was excited to see lots of lighting setups pictured in this feature. The behind the scenes video “Behind the Scenes: On the Road with Parks & Rec” on NBC.com is done very well. It’s also a good look into what makes up a day on any set. These are some of the crazier days for sure because you usually won’t have 7 locations in one day! When the AD finally says those beautiful words “It’s a wrap” it must have sounded like music, although that’s also the point at which you have to start packing everything up. The director also yells “OK go” rather than “action” which sounds nice too. Overall it seemed like a great place to be on set.
Here’s a daytime scene in a cozy D.C. office.
And here’s how the overall lighting was achieved:
Just for comparison, here’s what it looks like where a scene is not lit:
There were a lot of exteriors.
The most freeing feeling? When a street lockup is finally released.
