The crew member confirmed the site is supposed to mimick a small town in Alaska. Crew members bustled around with racks of costumes, light and sound readers and walkie-talkies. In addition to the semi trucks, there were four cast trailers, a few buses, and two large, green army Jeeps. A staging area full of lighting equipment was set up behind the hotel with lights so bright it seemed as though a small sun was shining on the building.
Earlier in the week filming took place in nearby Ucluelet where public access to the corner of Helen Road and Main Street was closed.
Helen Wiersma, owner of Second Hand Cargo, had the exterior of her thrift shop turned into a hunting supply store.
The shop was closed for filming. "For this street scene, they want windy, wet and stormy," she told the Westerly News one day prior to filming.
The weather arrived as expected, and small crowds of bystanders weathered the wind and rain to get a glimpse of filming.
