With the cast reveals right around the corner, it’s time to ramp up the big visual reveals as we count down towards our early summer premiere. So let’s kick things off with a mini blog feature I’m calling The Four Days of Tabor Calchek.
Introducing the crew’s handler, their de facto agent, the guy who gets them their freelance assignments. He’s smug; he’s smarmy; he’s swank and laid-back. Day #1: Let’s call this one “Home Office Casual”.
Hey, speaking of Dark Matter’s summer premiere, we’ve got an official airdate:
That’s Friday, June 12th at 10:00 p.m. Ah, this takes me back. Do you remember the glorious Friday SF triple header of days gone by: Stargate: Atlantis, Stargate: SG-1, and Battlestar Galactica running back to back to back? Well, rumour has it science fiction fans are in for a real treat this summer as SyFy brings back SciFi Fridays. I, for one, can’t wait.
But I’m going to have to because Atmosphere is still working on those visual effects.
Hey, continuing my ongoing series of “Who’s who on the Dark Matter crew?” – it is with great pleasure that, today, I introduce to you the awesome Jean Brophey, On Set Dresser extraordinaire. It’s her job to make sure things look good before the director yells “Action!”, and she takes her job pretty seriously, scrambling onto set to switch out cargo crates, flip bed covers, and whisk away weird background elements that she, the eagle-eyed expert, will catch before anyone else.
And when she’s not ensuring on set continuity on the rotating quarters sets (She has a visual overview of each crew member’s room hanging on the far wall for easy referral) or pointing out potential visual miscues, she’s moving stuff whether it be chairs, tables, weapons or…
…a pile of giant rocks.
Need that grand piano moved? Well contact Jean c/o Dark Matter!
