REM - 2007 Excerpt #2

Scene: The Apocalypse... [3.5 minute excerpt]
This scene starts after coming back from a commercial break, REM is a two hour 'made-from-tv' movie and includes 4 commercial breaks approx every 30 minutes. The movie takes place in one 24-hour day, whenever there is a clock in the scene it has to coincide with the time-line in the movie. This particular clip takes place late at night so i used the "CBC Late Night Movie" coming back from the commercial. (This scene in REM is much longer than evidenced in this excerpt, I took out about 5 minutes of bombs exploding, things blowing up and people collapsing.)
