My sweetheart seems to be feeling under the weather tonight. No, my OTHER sweetheart. Well, technically, my first sweetheart. At 16 years, Jelly is my longest relationship. She’s getting a bit fussy in her old age, more demanding, less inclined to suffer fools (mainly my other pug, Bubba), but I think that just makes her more lovable. She’s a daddy’s girl. Despite her bad hips, arthritic joints, deafness, and weak eyesight, she always greets me with an enthusiastic fervor usually reserved for pan-fried chicken hearts. Tonight, not so much. Not sure what’s up. Maybe she’s got a lot on her mind…
Did you see the Dark Matter teaser trailer? 78k+ views in four days! Did you share it with your friends? Your family? Complete strangers? Did you get it out to other SF enthusiasts? Maybe William Shatner and Wil Wheaton are looking for a new scifi series to get hooked on?
Well, just in case, here’s the link: https://youtu.be/1TqwBlTQfTg
I guarantee, this show will be more addictive than those honey and tabasco roasted pecans I made last year.
Two units shooting today on our standing sets. While John Stead was directing the action on the bridge and the infirmary, Ron Murphy was directing the action in the training room and various quarters. Scenes from four different episodes were on the docket today. Meanwhile, Director Martin Wood was busy prepping episode #111, while Director Andy Mikta was prepping episode #112.
John Stead directs Marc Bendavid (ONE). Crew blocking.
I spent most of the day agonizing over and, ultimately, writing two new scenes for episode #112. Tomorrow, I kick things off with a soundscape meeting (deciding on all the awesome ship tones), then head to the production offices for a pre-VFX Visual Effects meeting – again for episode #112 (It’s a big one!). I’ll while away the afternoon in my office, writing the two new scenes for #110.
Kyle models the soon-to-be space suit.
Amid all of the prepping, producing, writing, and editing, I have managed to get some time off. For eating and sleeping, mostly, but also to check out a couple of horror movies with good buzz…
A simple but creepily effective and, ultimately, unnerving horror film. I’m not sure what was more unsettling: the babadook or that annoying kid.
A small, independent film with a great premise and a lot of good scares. Eerie.
