It was just the boys today, Anthony Lemke (THREE) and Marc Bendavid (ONE), in for some anti-gravity fun and stunts. Later, at the craft service table, they both had a special request: more Zero-G sequences! I’ll see what we can do for them.
While we were chatting, I couldn’t help but notice Anthony playing with his guns. And not for the first time either. Every chance he gets, he’s practicing: holstering and unholstering his sidearms, twirling them forward, twirling them back. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him out and about with his wife – she, shopping, him following a few steps behind – holstering, unholstering, twirling.
I’ve got some great behind-the-scenes pics and videos I’m holding off on posting for now – including a first-time inertial dampener fail run-thru. Can’t wait to show you.
In the meantime, here are some photos I CAN share…
Director T.J. Scott and 1st A.D. Brandon Tataryn all revved up for another early morning start.
Design on the back of the bridge chairs. This was my seat for most of the morning. Sadly, I had to give it up for one of those run-of-the-mill director’s chairs when we moved video village to the sub-zero section of the stage.
T.J. says: “See those stunt mats over there? We’re going to need them.”
Our stunt coordinator, the incredible John Stead. Some terrific work from him today!

Space waste! Handle with care.
