I’m not sure how many of you tuned in to the first episode of “Beach.Ball.Babes” last night. Those of you who did might be wondering how Christopher Lee drove so convincingly. I am about to share with you “behind-the-scenes” to a car scene we did together in a later episode. In other words, you get a little preview of what is to come later on, and how it was done.


I’m not quite sure what they were trying to do here, perhaps they were trying to find a way to tow the car?


While waiting for the car to be in position…cameraman, director, Christopher Lee’s body double, lighting engineer, camera assistant taking a break (left to right).


Christopher and his DS Lite.


Tired of squatting, or in need of a change of “fengshui”?


The cameraman prepares the camera for a front shot.


The cameraman is shooting Christopher from my point of view while I’m feeding lines from the backseat.


The tow truck in front drags the Range Rover “driven” by Christopher behind, to simulate the driving experience.

最辛苦就是摄影师,为了达到效果“不择手段”, 真的是敬业乐业!

A car scene on television may only be a few seconds, but the filming process can take up to a couple of hours, just mounting the cameras and repeating the lines from different angles. The professional cameraman going all out to capture yet another angle. Please do not imitate.


I’m waiting for the rain to stop with Christopher’s body double. For wide shots, he will take over Christopher behind the wheel.


Here’s a video to give you a better idea!

  1. The first episode(like every other first episode of a serial) is light and funny. Esp. the interaction between Dawn & her Grandpa.

    I never could imagine Chris playing DS. I thought he’s more of a PSP guy lol

    Watching the show last night makes me wanna play volleyball like old times.


  2. hi joanne jie jie, yea i got watch last nite… v nice=)

    &&, of cos i like the way to tie ur hair in Beach.Ball.Babes, the ponytail- its cute! 😀
    hope u reply to my question…

  10. I watched a bit of Ep1…the cake shop you work in looks the same as the one where Zoe Tay’s character opened her new cake shop in La Femme…

  11. were u the 1 who took the video?

  12. wah can see that a lot of hardwork is being put in for the car scences.Maybe in the drama it may be shown for a few seconds but it takes many people and hours to perfect it.
    the new show is really funny and interesting!!

  13. Hi JW,

    yes I was the one who took the video!

    Joanne 🙂

  14. Hi kimberly,

    I’m sorry I don’t know if there’s a name to Jess’s hairstyle.


  15. Hi Val,

    All I can say is….ewwww! *sorry frog*!!


  16. Hi Germaine,

    I took the video while sitting in the backseat feeding lines, using my camera. I didn’t need to be in the shot, so all I did was point and shoot. 🙂


  17. Hi you did great in acting in this production and i love to see your shows too ! can i get to know you?

  18. Haha… I agree with what 10) Kelvin said. The cake shop’s the same as the one Zoe “owned” in La Femme. Coz of the bright red walls… Also, the gold tone bag that Pan Ling Ling carried in episode 1 was the same one as the one where Jeanette used in the drama serial before La Femme (the one about Christopher Lee being able to change the ending…).

    😀 It’s a nice bag though, any idea what’s the brand? 😀

    Joanne, you look really nice and sporty in the show. The image suits u really well. Sunshine girl!

  19. 刚看了两集,继续跟进中……

  20. hello (: nice blog you have.
    im one of the trainee who work at verve studio the last time you went (: rmb me?

  21. Hi Joanne! I’ve been following the episodes religiously every single night now and making it an effort to reach home early before the show starts…hahaha, it proves that I’ve showed much passion for volleyball too! *grin*
    My mum commented that u look nice with pleated hair while playing on the court.

    Btw, may I know if you faced any difficulties playing volleyball outdoors compared to indoors?
    As playing outdoors u’ll faced many difficulties, such as the sand, the sun and the wind, beach volleyball players must have outstanding ball skills and court speed.

    I’m a volleyball player like you Joanne, back in school then and I was playing defender ^__^ so i guess playing outdoor is not really that difficult for you thou’?

  22. hellos joanne jiie..i havent started watching the beach.ball.babes yet as i was busy with scho0l work..and stuffs..but i did record it with a tape..aahahah.now that i am not that busy anymore i am sure i will be able to have the time to watch it now yahx.i am sure so logn as have u inside would be great and omgggggg…the frog part..i guess its pretty slimey yea?? how did u overcome ur fear?
