Notes From the Set

We shot this episode as part of the weekend shoot in February 2011 that brought us Episode 5.

One of the most impressive things that happened during the shooting of this episode was the wonderful interaction between Dan (Jerome Bourgault) and Sue (Kate Drummond). When I first conceived of Sweet Tarts Takeaway, I hadn't really fleshed out Dan's character. I was disappointed in the way I had written Dan up until this point ... making him rather whiny and weak, and not giving enough meat to the character for Jerome to explore, and exercise his acting talents. Several of the crew, myself included, were almost in tears during Dan's final scene at Sue's house. Bravo, Jerome & Kate.

This episode introduces Rachelle Casseus as the yoga instructor. Rachelle was a delight to work with - her comedic timing impeccable, from years working in sketch comedy. Even with no lines in her scenes, she was still able to convey so much.

Once again, Amber Peters and Brett Kelly shared the role of Director of Photography, while Jeremy Kennedy dropped by during the yoga studio scene, and let us use his camera rig for some of the shots.


When is the next episode coming out?

Hi! The next episode will be posted either today (30 August) or tomorrow! Just as soon as I cook up the latest recipe to make sure it works! We will tweet when the episode, and the recipe (from B. Goods Cookies), are available.

Introduced to this show this evening while channel surfing... CBC added a pitch so it was easy to follow.
This is very refreshing in an upbeat yet unpredictable way... one feels though they are along for the journey in each episode.
Looking forward to the next.... pleeeeeeeeeeeeeease.

Thanks so much, Steve! We are glad you enjoy the show. We have a total of 18 episodes planned for season one ... first we need to rest after all the hard work everyone put in to producing the CBC summer special, but we plan to do more shooting in the Fall!

Great episode everyone! I can't wait to find out what happens with Sue and Dan. It made me so sad!
