That ride through the country side that Irisa and Nolan take in the first scenes of the pilot episode don't look as spacious when you see how they were really shot.
Too bad this wasn't actually a scene in the show. We'd love to know what window washers of the future look like.
Director Michael Nankin at work. In addition to working on more TV shows than possible to count (including Picket Fences and Monk), Michael directed the 1980 film classic Midnight Madness (important trivia: It was Michael J. Fox's acting debut).
Way more goes into a seemingly simply scene of two people in a car than is apparent to the casual viewer.

That's some supermodel hair there. There's not even a fan - it just naturally does that!
Angle one of the shot....
Visual effects will be added to this scene later. With a show like Defiance, actors are often working opposite CGI creatures or backgrounds that are not even there!
A candid moment between director and actor during a break from filming.
It was quite cold in Canada, where Defiance is filmed, so jackets were often worn during rehearsals, such as here.
Another angle of Amanda rallying the troops during the first episode's massive battle scene.
