PHOTOS: On the set of Transolar Galactica

by

This week, Chey Scott writes about the state of the film industry in Washington state. On Saturday, Aug. 3, a small production team filmed an episode of Transolar Galactica, a sci-fi web series, near Bigelow Gulch Road in Spokane. Over a couple of hours, there were several set changes in order to capture the perfect natural lighting for a few seconds of footage. At the end of filming, the footage was downloaded immediately onto a laptop for editing. Photos by Young Kwak.
