I'm behind on my timelining, so tonight I'm combing 7x20 for information.

Here's a bit of trivia:

According to Frank's hard-drive's GPS, Richard Roman Enterprises is located at 707 Osterman Ave, Deerfield, IL.
Coordinates: 42.163992,-87.845703

It's a US Post Office.

Here'a little peak behind the curtain at the cost and time involved in filming a TV show...

As many of you may remember, I sometimes do a little "background work" on the side, and in February, on an atypically somewhat sunny day, I went to work on The Killing, which airs on AMC in the States.

My episode aired on April 22nd! I had forgotten all about it until [ profile] missyjack inquired about it last night. So, 10 minutes later, thanks to a particularly quick torrent, I scanned through the episode to find myself...


That's right! Those are my lovely black trouser-covered legs in the background, with my left hand and my favourite brown jacket. I'm on screen for approx. 2 seconds, as I walk across frame from right to left.

So, what does this teach us?

I was on set for approx. 5 hours, and as a non-union background performer, I was paid just over $11 an hour....and I was on film for 2 seconds.

So, the next time you are watching something with a "crowd" scene that only lasts a few seconds...think of ALL THE MONEY.
