Today marked the final day of Amanda Tapping’s directing gig on Dark Matter episode #104 (pictured above with 1st Assistant Director Brandon Tataryn).
We’re going to miss her. And not just because she treated the cast and crew to a mobile coffee, tea, and hot chocolate stand!
Meanwhile, Assistant Production Coordinator Travis Lowry celebrated his birthday in fine style today with streamers and balloons and a Steel Magnolias-themed cake (featuring him and the ladies). Pictured above, the birthday boy takes a break from the festivities to pose for an Executive Producer mandated birthday photo. Note the look in his eyes, a mixture of excitement, delight, and pure terror.
While Travis was celebrating his birthday on Earth, the rest of the production was on Shaofu 2 for our last day on the space station!
I’m going to miss this place. After a terrific six days in its atmospherically controlled environs, we capped things off with a visit to the station’s clinic…
That’s a wrap on #104. Next week, we’re on to episode #105, moving from space station to space freighter!
