Sitting down inside a building, momentarily spared from the punishing Albuquerque heat and choking amounts of dust in the air, intended to simulate the post-apocalyptic aftermath of a solar flare, Tom Hanks is having a ball. It's March 2019, a year before the real world starts feeling vaguely apocalyptic (ironically in part because Hanks himself will be an early high-profile COVID-19 case). But, at this point in time, the only similarities between Finch and Hanks' actual life have to do with his past filmography. Finch is about the last man on Earth and his dog. You could call it Cast Away meets Turner & Hooch. Hanks admits to SYFY WIRE during our visit to the set, almost missing his lunch break because he's too busy chatting at length with the assembled journalists. He and his dog, Goodyear, are on a mission. Originally titled Bios, Finch follows Hanks as a brilliant scientist who managed to survive a solar flare that seemingly wiped out the rest of humanity a decade prior to the events of the film. Five years ago, his life changed when he found a dog, who he named Goodyear, giving himself the companionship that made his life less lonely. But, now Finch is facing down an illness that looks terminal, so the scientist creates a robot, named Jeff, who he hopes will look after his beloved dog once he's gone. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the trio is forced to leave Finch's safe hideout and brave the scorched wilderness as Finch tries to teach a robot to be human enough for man's best friend.
39;s life in ways you can see on the set.
It's a tear-jerking premise to a nearly weapons-grade extent. Hanks says, adding that the dog who plays Goodyear, Seamus, has eyes that remind him of a beloved family dog he had to euthanize. Hanks notes that Finch is further different from Turner & Hooch, which he says battled with studio notes to make the dog more anthropomorphic. Hooch was a partner in a buddy-cop movie. Goodyear is Finch's reason to live. Hanks says, adding that there's a reason why Seamus, not Hanks nor Caleb Landry Jones (who plays Jeff), is No. 1 on the call sheet. Goodyear changed Finch's life in ways you can see on the set. Hanks says when he first visited the set of Finch's underground bunker, he took issue with how cluttered it was. Hanks, director Miguel Sapochnik (of Game of Thrones fame), and the entire crew of Finch were constantly paying attention to details like this to make Finch's world feel real. The visual effects team went on at length about how they designed an environment that had been ravaged by a solar flare; the robotics team made Finch's creations as realistic as possible, and Hanks recalls going back and forth with Sapochnik and the crew when designing the cooling suit Finch wears when he ventures outside. Even Finch's pantry was highly thought out. Compared to Dune or Eternals, at times Finch hardly feels like science fiction. Sapochnik admits in a different interview. Hanks has an affinity for grounded sci-fi, recalling that he really fell in love with the genre when he pulled a Robert A. Heinlein book called Have Space Suit-Will Travel off the set dressing library while shooting, of course, Turner & Hooch.
While more cerebral, out-there authors such as William Gibson and Phillip K. Dick are hit-and-miss for Hanks, Heinlein, Kim Stanley Robinson, and Andy Weir feel "closer to theoretical science" than science fiction. Still, there is, as Sapochnik notes, a robot in Finch. Finch built a smaller, non-humanoid robot named Dewey prior to the events of the film, but he's more of a tool than an entity. The other robot, Jeff, is something much more, in large part because he's played by Jones, acting opposite and in scenes with Hanks. Jones is largely replaced by CGI in the finished film, though his co-star says it was essential that Jeff was portrayed by an actual person making their own character decisions. As far as the relationship between Finch and the robot he made to look after his dog, Hanks says that evolves in unexpected ways. For a movie that only seems to have three characters (and one of them is a dog), Finch has a lot going on. Hanks, who has made a lot of movies, says that Finch is potentially asking a lot from its audience. As various members of the crew try to gently remind Hanks that he's been chat for so long that he's liable to miss his chance to eat lunch, the actor happily reflects on some of the past times he's been able to make a movie feel real to the audience. It doesn't always feel like it's going to work on the set. Talking to Hanks inside of a building that's supposed to be long-abandoned and ruined due to the downfall of civilization, you can sense why selling the reality of Finch is important to Hanks. The secret to making it all happen, he says, is deceptively simple. You've just got to do the thing.
And with Jay, Shelly is very clingy and flirtatious.
Scott Shelly ( Hangul:셸리 ) is one of the female protagonists in the webtoon. She begins a one-sided relationship with Jay at the start of the series but as the story progress they have a mutual crush on each other and as of chapter 378 they are in a relationship. Shelly is the only female member of the Humming Bird Crew. Because she stayed at England before coming to Korea her personality is perceived as very headstrong. She does not like it when people talk badly about her friends, especially Jay. Shelly also has a lot of stamina and strength, she can keep up with the group's pace when racing and can actually send people flying with her punch (Although that may be for comedic reasons) but never got into the street fights with the guys of the crew. When she was hit on in her first appearance on the series she refused with a lot of sass. Mia described her as someone who can confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Although her words are harsh, it is because she never sugar coated her words with her friends. And with Jay, Shelly is very clingy and flirtatious. She has very foreign features: pale skin, her eyes actually look more mint green in color than blue, blond wavy hair. It is known later in the series that she has a tattoo in the side of her arm near the wrist that reads out "temet nosce" or "Know Thyself". At school she wears her uniform usually without the red vest and both wears the skirt and pants.
It was told in an early episode (Ep.
She is often seen wearing high-end brand clothing, but also occasionally wearing street wear and tomboyish clothes. When riding her bike, she usually wears a jacket and helmet with the same color as her eyes or the Hummingbird crew's hood. She is tall, with long thin legs, a small waist and a bigger bust. Not much is known about Shelly, but it is established that she is from England and she requested to transfer to Sunny High School because of Jay. It was told in an early episode (Ep. 27) that she will be in Korea for one semester. Shelly is the granddaughter of Sunny High School's principal, Nick. When Shelly was a kid, she didn't want to get married and promised Nick that she will just live with him forever, which caused Nick to think that Shelly is not interested to guys until she got interested in Jay. That also caused the over protectiveness of her grandfather. Jay saw what happened and chased the thieves to get her purse back. She refused on taking him to the hospital but Jay refused. She picked up his student ID that had fallen to the ground and, motivated by her encounter with Jay, called her grandfather, asking him to let her attend Sunny High School. Her second meeting with Jay was in their classroom. She kissed him out of the blue and the gossip that Shelly and Jay were in a relationship quickly spread around the school.
When Jay, Dom and Minu got suspended, Shelly visited them and scolded Dom and Minu badly about how Jay got caught with their actions. Jay got pissed and told her to screw off, she ended up crying and running away. When Jay was about to say sorry, he got a pink rose from Minu, saying that he should give it to her. He couldn't and Shelly went on saying that she'll forgive him if he became her boyfriend for a week and Jay agreed. She joined Hummingbird as the only female on the team, she continued to flirt with Jay and when Jay was teaching Mia how to ride a bike, she kept on intervening and wanting him to teach her even though she knows how. On a special episode, Shelly was seen riding a bike in Jay's neighborhood. Minu and Kay noticed her, Kay was thinking of who might Shelly go out with and ended up being shocked that it was his brother. In the last scene, Jay and Shelly are resting after riding their bike together, and she comments that Jay suits biking more than studying. The Preliminaries for the League of Street has started, only Dom and Jay were able to race at the first two rounds. After that, they found out that Jay's birthday was near and planned to celebrate it. She didn't showed up at school on his birthday because she was the one who prepared the gift that they got for him.
This pushed Mia to contact the modeling agency that reached out to her.
When the boys with the worried June except Jay planned to give Jay a strong alcoholic drink, they didn't expect Shelly to drink it, thinking it was juice. They are dumb-founded and later on, a drunk Shelly came closer to Jay and told her how she was hurt by his actions and proceeding to kiss him the second time. They pulled Shelly of Jay who was already littered with kiss marks. Mia was the one who brought Shelly home, when she was sober enough, Mia asked her if she liked Jay which she answered yes. Mia told her how she envied her for being able to confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Shelly answered that she doesn't understand Mia's concern and told her an advice to start believing in herself more and learning to love herself. This pushed Mia to contact the modeling agency that reached out to her. Before the race, Shelly was being hit on by a member of the Bullet Crew who will be racing against them. The glasses guy kept on hitting on her even when she's denying him. Vinny came to her rescue and punched the guy when he didn't stop.
That led to the glasses guy to take drugs to have a revenge against the Hummingbird Crew. Shelly took the lead until he passes the baton to June. As the race ended, she tried to kiss Jay in his sleep but he moved and she wasn't able to do so. She also took the test with Minu and Dom since, in a sense, she is still a student at Sunny High. When Mia was modeling, a bunch of girls kept on talking about her, gossiping about Mia like dating an old guy or having a sugar daddy to be able to model. Shelly obviously tried to help her. Yuna and Shelly later on went to Mia's house in hopes that they could get her to come to school. On the way riding a bus, a guy came up on her behind and was hitting on her, she shut him down while cursing, very contrasting of her appearance. When Yuna, Mia and Shelly were talking at the park near Mia's house, Shelly started saying something harsh to Mia, although it is a way to actually let Mia see what's happening beyond her room which she choose to lock herself with. Yuna reprimanded Shelly, saying she was too harsh and Mia broke down but then was silent at what Shelly said. After that talk, the three of them came at Heri's bike shop so that Mia can say thank you.
