Asked 3x05/06 director Rachel Raimist how they continue filming without her being on set (she’s currently in Covid timeout ), and this was her answer.
RNM Executive Producer Lance Anderson (also directed 3x1/02, 2x02, 1x10, 1x04 and 1x02) took over and keeps the cameras rolling until Rachel can hopefully return to set eventually. 👏
Poor Rachel, the 3x05/3x06 director’s come in close contact with someone who tested positive for Covid19. She’s no longer on set, instead she’s quarantining at home for two weeks, and monitors everything from there. Filming continues uninterrupted tho. Fingers crossed Rachel (and everyone else) stays healthy, and she can return to set at the tail end of her directing stint. 🤞
docraimist Bad news bears, alien friends and fans. I should be in my trailer (the only place I take my mask off), but I am on a safer sets time out for a 14-day quarantine.
Sorry no more BTS photos for a min. I know 😭 So sad!
As of now I am healthy but I was in close contact with someone who tested positive. Contract tracing has me and some friends in time out but have no fear, the show goes on and the Covid set safety team is keeping the cast and crew safely shooting… just without me. 😞
Hopefully I will get a few more days of filming in before I head to the next show (and another 14 days of quarantine). & Either way, my eps are in excellent hands!
Mask up. Sanitize. Distance. Wash your hands.
Stay safe my friends! 👽💚

Filming at the Crashdown Café today!
docraimist I’m back at it which means I am back in a bathroom. (I always want to be as close to the set and the actors as I can safely be, without being in the shot.)
& Thanks to whoever put a chair over the toilet… it’s a set and not really a potty… thankfully. 🤣🤣🤣

docraimist No Covid cooties! After two rapid tests and a PCR Lab test, I am cleared for work. Can’t wait to get filming!
And the best thing was seeing so many of the ROSWELL NM fam (cast and crew) all gathered outside of the Covid testing offices safely 6 feet apart, of course.
The Covid safety team would call your name and say, “Rachel, you are cleared for work!” And everyone would clap and cheer - Roswell folx are all love! 👽💜

Cast & crew are back in Santa Fe to continue filming 3x05/06!
That’s a wrap on filming in 2020! 🎉🎉🎉
(I asked, and Everett - who’s doing special effects for the show - confirmed that the crew’s on Holiday break now, meaning there won’t be any more filming happening next week, and they’ll continue to film 3x05/06 in January).
docraimist Hey hey, items a three camera day with stunts, sfx and vfx. And I have my own safe corner that’s not a men’s room. #SetLife #TV #DGA #Director #HireWomen

docraimist For my ROSWELL NEW MEXICO super fans who have been asking when I start filming, today is the day!
We are block shooting episodes 305 and 306 which means we film the scenes together efficiently and safely for all.
Fun, health and safety are key to season 3 which I promise will bring all the things that we love about this show!
