January 9, 2015: Dark Matter, Episode #101, Production Day One!
One day down; about ninety more to go. And what a day it was! Sparks! Steam! Camera shake! An unexpected downpour almost taking out a camera! Stasis pods! Reveals! And apricot-coconut cookies! What more could I ask for?
Unfortunately, Zoie Palmer was the only cast member not present today (She’s enjoying a nice, relaxed long weekend in advance of next Monday’s extensive fight training session) so I had to seek medical advice from a real doctor this afternoon. He assured me I had not, as I suspected, “unstoppered my liver”. According to him, I cracked the cartilage in my ribcage. He suggested rest, a warm compress, an easy chair for sleeping, and plenty of patience. This’ll take a while to heal!
Tomorrow – lucky us! – a rare Saturday shoot. Bring on the anti-grav sequence!
P.S. Happy Anniversary! This is my 3000th blog entry here on WordPress!
