(Geneva, N.Y.) - One of the highlights for Day 3 was what the crew calls the “Braveheart March” when about 200 volunteers march down the street before they demolish the home.
Cameras captured three separate takes of the march for this segment of "Extreme Reality."
"We're a big primetime show, so we need to look big and amazing," explained designer Michael Moloney.
"They're doing too many takes"--my feet are killing me!" said Linda Chesser, from her place in the crowd.
Five cameras captured scenes from five different angles -- over and over. But as Hollywood vets know, re-takes are routine
Ty Pennington and the designers cheered for an empty street for one take, but thanks to editing – the crowd will be there and it'll all make sense when the episode airs in November.
If you've been watching the progress this week, you probably noticed that the designers wear the same clothes every day. Well, it's not because they forgot to do their laundry. Again it all comes down to editing. They started shooting the demolition scenes Tuesday and wrapped them up Wednesday.
“I'll tell you a little secret,” said Senior Producer Diane Korman. “It's going to be turned into one day of demolition when you watch the show!”
Lucky for everyone, the pace of the shooting picked up a bit.
"We do have to get those shots because it establishes what happens…pretty much from here forward, it reality rolls," said Moloney.
The crew is confident the house will be finished on Sunday. By later Wednesday afternoon, one project manager said they were just 15 minutes behind schedule.
