Well, look who it is. Yes, that’s director Andy Mikita (you may know him from such shows as Stargate: SG-1, Stargate: Atlantis, and Stargate: Universe) flashing the Dark Matter trade paperback. What’s the deal? A little recreational reading? Perhaps some professional research in advance of an upcoming gig? Well, I suppose we’ll all find out soon enough.
A member of the Dark Matter crew who needs no introduction – but I’m going to introduce him anyway, just in case – is our incredible Director of Photography, Craig Wright.
Back when we were assembling the Dark Matter production team, I met with several possible candidates regarding the DOP position on the show. Craig seemed like a good guy in his interview and there was no denying his work looked great, but I was undecided – only because I really didn’t really know him. But Jay and Vanessa did know him, quite well in fact, as he’d been working on Lost Girl for them these last few years. I, ultimately, trusted their opinion and, in turn, placed my trust in Craig. And I’m happy to report that the production has been rewarded with a richly talented Director of Photography, a positive and dedicated member of the crew, and – my first instincts were correct! – a wonderful guy to work alongside.
