Less than two weeks until the SGU second season premiere! That’s Tuesday, September 28th at 9:00 p.m. on SyFy for those in the U.S., and Friday, October 1st at 10:00 p.m. (ET) on Space for those in Canada. Steve is madly working on that Superfantastic Stargate Trailer to End All Trailers –
We’re aiming to release the trailer within the next five days. Stay tuned!
Final tech survey in North Van this afternoon for episode #216, The Hunt, followed by the production meeting. Between the stunts, special effects, visual effects, set builds, make up, and props, the budget was positively vertiginous. Fortunately, after making a few harmless trims (most notably scenes 56, 60, and the bone budget), it’s now only slightly dizzying.
If you read our September book of the month club pick, the superhero-themed anthology Masked, and have questions for editor Lou Anders, writers Matthew Sturges, Paul Cornell, Marjorie M. Liu, James Maxey, Mark Chadbourn, Gail Simone, Daryl Gregory or yours truly, make sure to post them by Friday night!
