HAVEN CREW Who’s Who – Lori Bellefontaine

Posted: September 10, 2014

HAVENhere at Sea and be Scene have been in love with HAVEN since it began and we've enjoyed every minute of profiling the stars and guest stars of the show.  That's an affinity now shared by millions of folks - as the cast of HAVEN is beloved around the world. But just as it takes a 'Village to Keep A Secret'... it also takes one to make the magic we've been enjoying for the past four seasons. So as the HAVEN team works throughout the fall to bring us a super-sized season 5 - we're celebrating the people behind the scenes.  It's our salute to the production team - the HAVEN Crew Who's Who series - continuing now with one of the most powerful people on set.... Lori Bellefontaine

film rollWhat exactly does a Genny Operator do?

Well, what I do is supply 120/208 power to sets with a 1400 AMP 3 Phrase generator, provided from either one of our 2 equipment houses in Nova Scotia, William F. Whites or PS Atlantic.

This provides power for lights – lights as big as our M90 and our 18k's that we use here on HAVEN – but also power as small, but just as important, to our key hair stylist Joanne Stamp's curling iron.

It involves grounding the generator with a grounding rod and a sledge, which sometimes is not that easy due to solid and rocky ground, but I manage to get it in there.

I've been swinging a sledge hammer almost every working morning for 18 years and sometimes you can hear me before you see me.

Cables are run from the generator and power is broken down along the way at distribution points to send out the various Voltage power need in an area.

With the direction of HAVEN's Comedian/Gaffer film roll 2Peter MacDonald and the see-to-it-of-ness of Best Boy Alan Sweet, and the help of HAVEN's electric team, (rigging gaffer) Terry Daly and 3rd electrics Graeme Everett, Mark Kenny and Tim (Farmer) Jennings, we seem to rock it every time and we do some of our best work when its dark … 🙂

I'd have to say that the "Sparks" on HAVEN - they are pretty great!

What's the worst "trouble" you've seen in HAVEN?

One of the worst troubles I've seen in HAVEN was the dehydration trouble in Season 2.

.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>film roll(Ep.211 "Business As Usual") >> If touched by the troubled person, you would start losing all of the fluids from your body. Actor Kevin Nugent played the guy affected by the dehydration trouble while running a race along the Shore Road in Mill Cove. He started out just sweating and then water just started pouring from his body. He couldn't drink water fast enough - by the end, he was just a skeleton covered with skin, in a running top and shorts. It was a terrible way to go!

What's the best part of working on HAVEN?

The cast and the crew on HAVEN ARE Haven. The people who take an imaginary place and make it real. They are the best part about it!

What's your favourite thing to do in Nova Scotia when you're not filming HAVEN?

Sleeping! No, really, it’s getting a chance to see my Dad, my two sisters, my niece and nephews and all of my family in Cape Breton, and spending time with my honey, Kirk, and his daughter.

Lori - feltI also love working on my crafts and hobbies - and also taking advantage of the beauty, the great people and great foods that are literally right around the corner.

Audrey and Nathan or Audrey and Duke?

Me and Dwight....LOL! Actually, Audrey and Nathan – it just seems right! 🙂
