Well, well, well. If it isn’t former Stargate script coordinator, fellow fantasy football enthusiast, and self-styled Thai food expert Lawren Bancroft-Wilson who joins us – all the way from comparatively warmer Vancouver, B.C. – to take on the role of Visual Effects Supervisor for Dark Matter‘s first season.
Lawren will be acting as the on set middle man between the production and the gang at Atmosphere VFX (among them, our former Stargate VFX Supervisor Mark Savela) who will be providing us with all of our spectacular visual effects shots and sequences: space battles, FTL jumps, pulse blasts and mass cellular decay (Oh, sorry. Spoiler alert!)
Silver balls! Silver balls! It’s space ship time the city!
It’s always fun to work with familiar faces. In the months ahead, in addition to Lawren, Mark, and Atmosphere VFX, I’ll be reuniting with Amanda Tapping (Stargate: SG-1‘s Samantha Carter), Torri Higginson (Stargate: Atlantis‘s Dr. Elizabeth Weir) and at least two more Stargate veterans. And there are a couple of familiar faces I’d like to add to the mix as well. Stay tuned!
Hey, I think it’s time for another mailbag. Have some questions? Post ’em if you got ’em!
