Flashpoint by Hard Rock Cafe in Toronto

The road beside the Yonge Street Hard Rock Café was closed to traffic today as filming on the television series ‘Flashpoint’ was being shot in O’Keefe Lane. The series continues into its fourth season and the cast was rigged out in their full Emergency Tactical Force (ETF) outfits.
Actor Hugh Dillon, David Paetkau and others waited for their scenes where they rush into the alley, going after some type of bad guy, automatic weapons at the ready.

The Canadian police drama takes a large crew to prep the actors and film the action. They also need a ton of security and actual Toronto police to keep people away from the talent and out of the camera shots. Luckily as a well known Toronto blogger I was able to catch some of the action.

See more pictures after the jump.
