Behind The Scenes CCSI IV

This post is dedicated to Emil the first paparazzi photographer of the CCSI shows. I have no doubt that little Emil is taking photos of others that are at the Rainbow Bridge. If only we could see those photos.

Emil Official Photographer of the CCSI shows

I had asked Karl to let me know how Emil got into taking photos on the set of the CCSI shows and received the following from him.

"When Emil was hanging out on the set of CCSI III he saw many things that were not meant to be public! He had the ingenious idea that if he could capture those with a camera he might be able to sell them and this way make money for charity! He begged me for a camera and as I didn't really know what it was for and thought he just wanted to take pretty pictures of the desert I gave him one, actually engraved his name on it too . . . the idea - money for charity is always good, right? . . . there was no stopping the paparazzo - a name he proudly gave himself . . . he took great joy in his work and had an uncanny ability to catch cats, and dogs, off guard!"

We miss you Emil and the others that are now at the bridge. Always know that all over the bridge are close to us in our heart and thoughts.

Now let's begin with the behind the scenes photos of CCSI IV - The Momomo Caper. I would like to mention that no injuries or accidents happened while filming.

Opus and I gave the cast a lesson in method acting. This is something that we studied while attending the Actors Studio in New York City.
