I spent most of today out and about, checking out possible locations for our last few episodes. We were on the lookout for: a high-tech facility, cool corridors and stairwells, operating theaters, a dining room, and a field emitter room…
This chamber offers a great-looking entrance and exit – when it’s not being used to wash hospital gurneys.
Line Producer Norman Denver and Production Designer Ian Brock kick back between autopsies.
See if we can switch out that thing in the middle for a power saw. We’ve got a tough nut to crack.
1st A.D. Brandon Tataryn finds his light.
Suitably creepy corridor. Could you imagine it, just a little bit dimmer – with some unfathomable creature crawling toward you from the other end? Yes?
To be honest, I’d try my luck in the creepy corridor with the crawling creature before I’d brave this catwalk.
“I’ve never seen a group so excited about a stairwell before.” – Guy who was giving us the tour of the place.
Director Andy Mikita in prep.
When the alarm that sounds like an air raid siren sounds, please put these one.
Ian invites you to share a seat with him on the hallucinogenic carpet.
Tomorrow, we follow up with a location photo look-see. And then, I’ve got to write that Android(s) scene!
In yesterday’s blog entry, I thanked all of the people who helped make Dark Matter a reality. BUT, I forgot one important supporter. Thankfully, longtime blog reader Ponytail reminded me…
“Joe you forgot one person behind your success…the one who keeps the home fires burning, offering endless support, taking care of the kids, a culinary expert, flying companion and dog escort, a constant source of amusement and delight, beautiful partner, perfect distraction from job stresses, ideal Tokyo sidekick and personal translator, equally talented with endless energy, and beloved by all. Where would you be without Akemi.”
…and reduced Akemi to tears.
So, yes. A special thanks to my awesome girlfriend who takes care of business on the home front while I’m away…
…and also sends me off every morning with these awesome bento box lunches.
