Last up tonight was the extra scene I wrote for episode #107. Whenever I write one of these, it invariably ends up being an Android scene because the character is so damn fun to write for – because Zoie Palmer is so damn good at playing her. This one was a particularly tricky corridor encounter and Zoie herself confided that, while she doesn’t usually get nervous before a scene, this one was a bit of an exception. Not that it showed. She NAILED it. The crew had a hell of a time keeping it together during the four takes – but completely lost it, along with the equally terrific Marc Ben-David, during the rehearsal. I’ve spent the past two hours walking around the apartment, shouting “TWOOOO DOZEN!” at the top of my lungs. Mark it! Episode #107, Scene 27A, Int. Ship – Corridor H: ONE and the Android. I guarantee it’ll be making the youtube rounds after it airs.
Tonight, there is no bigger Zoie Palmer fan than me. With the possible exception of Akemi who has watched the first six cuts of Dark Matter‘s first season and has completely fallen in love with her character.
Speaking of our dear Android, how’s this little sneak peek at what we have in the works:
She rules Post Production with an iron fist – respected, admired and, in some cases, feared. She makes damn sure the episodes are locked, the deliveries made, and the trains run on time. Cross her at your peril! She is Rachel Sutherland, Dark Matter Post Production Producer! And she is a force to be reckoned with!
And positively delightful company. I always get to editing early just so that we can chat. She’s one of those people who you can talk to for days on end.
AND she’s a fellow foodie who, on occasion, will surprise me with treats. Cookies! Chocolate! Two extra days of editing!
This weekend, we’re hitting Buca Restaurant on King. Taleggio cheese, duck yolk, and fresh white truffle pizzas beware. We’re taking no prisoners!
