The Dark Matter production office kitchen is fairly well-stocked, offering everything from iced tea and mini cinnamon rolls to boxes of seaweed chips. Sadly, the one thing they didn’t have today was the one thing I was looking for – club soda. And so, I went to the big whiteboard to write in my ask. Pictured above, the requests as of this late afternoon. The last two are mine, entered after I had to go all the way back to my office to grab a green marker.
(Wait! Which crew member is that lying on the infirmary bed?! Tune in this summer to find out!)
Director Ron Murphy continues to get it done on set, wrapping an enormous two-day infirmary marathon before shifting gears to our resplendent palace setting…in Kitchener, Ontario. His dailies look great and on-set producer Ivon Bartok has nothing but great things to say about the man and his work. I can safely say that episode #106 won’t be the last we’ll see of him!
I can say that because he’s contractually obligated to director episode #109 for us as well.
Well, hey, if it isn’t Script Supervisor Matti Huhta who, clearly bummed at missing out on my recent Dark Matter “Girls with Guns” pictorial decided to make the most of an opportunity the other day, holding up production so that I could get the following blogworthy snaps. When Matti’s not posing with weaponry, she’s also keeping track of script continuity, timing my episodes short, and casually remarking how long it has been since Akemi last made cookies for the crew.
