There will be 2 Units shooting on Monday. One at the Sound Stage on Reames Rd, and one on location at the Duke Mansion. Unit 1 is EP 211 and will be shooting the CIA at the Stage. Unit 2 is EP 210 and will be shooting The Naval Observatory at the Duke Mansion. I have asked Tona to let you know if you are Stage Unit 211 or Stage Unit 210 so that you know which of the following info applies to you.
Everyone should wear their first best choice and bring other choices so that we can make a final decision. Please bring you clothes with you when you check in. DO NOT LEAVE YOU CLOTHES IN THE CAR!
GENERAL NOTE: The high for Monday 10/8 is only supposed to be 53 degrees. If you think that you will be chilly and need a comfort coat to keep yourself warm while off-camera, please bring it yourself. I also suggest bringing or wearing under layers such as silks or thermals to help keep you warm while on camera. The Costume Dept will be unable to provide you with under layers or comfort coats for your warmth. If you feel you need these things, you must bring them for yourselves.
