A couple of more clips from the vault – behind the scenes on Stargate: Atlantis’s Midway. Andy Mikita directs the wraith…
I’m pleased to report my Snow Monkeys kicked the crap out of Ivon Bartok’s The Running Dead in fantasy football action today, climbing into a three-way tie for second place in the R.I.P. Stargate League.
Let’s celebrate with some mailbag!
D writes: “What were the “planet-builders”going to be like?”
Answer: Although we had a general idea of who/what the planet-builders were (incredibly powerful aliens capable of generating living worlds – obviously) we were still months away from discussing and detailing their background and purpose (beside their grand scale scientific research). Just prior to the cancellation, Brad was pitching out a story in which Destiny would finally encounter the planet-builders. Unfortunately, we never got the chance to develop the story.
Tam Dixon writes: “You seem to be full of energy. How do you get settled down enough to sleep? Max and Jelly doing ok?”
Answer: Reading for about an hour or two prior to turning in really helps me unwind – often despite the subject matter. For instance, at present I’m reading Stephen King’s Dreamcatchers, a terrific page-turner. As for the dogs – they’re well. The older dogs have slowed down considerably of late but are doing alright. Maximus is a whole new dog since coming back to Vancouver!
Paloosa writes: “Will you be trying to develop TV series, or even delve into feature films?”
Answer: Ideally, would love to set up an original series. Eventually. Am talking to a few individuals/production entities about developing some established properties. Also have also talked to a couple of studios about show running opportunities on future projects. Regardless of what, exactly, my next job will be – I’m not interested in starting anything until 2012. Taking the rest of the year off.
Paloosa also writes: “And I too was wondering about Paul. Is he still in Toronto? Is he working on other projects as well?”
Answer: Paul is enjoying his time off and will be returning to Vancouver in a couple of weeks. When it comes to work: wherever I goes, he goes – and vice versa.
noellam writes: “Does your new show idea have anything to do with food?”
Answer: We’re discussing a number of show ideas and, yes, a few of them have a lot to do with food. 🙂
Akemi writes: “I ate a lot and put on a weight. :(“
Answer: I’ll say. Check out these before and after pics from our Food Truck Tour.
