Ahem. Now that I’ve got that out of my system…
With Consulting Producer Ivon Bartok on set, I was able to sit in my office and blaze through seven glorious pages of my latest script (questions, silver ball, impending doom, threats, danger, explosion) bringing me to the top of P.51. I figure I’ll finish up the fifth act tomorrow and then, it’ll be smooooooooth sailing!
In addition to writing this afternoon, I also found time for the Episode #205 props meeting. We’ll be bringing out the big guns for this one –
Literally. In addition to the heavy firepower, we’ll also be putting out all the stops as this will probably be our biggest visual effects episode to date.
Director Ron Murphy demonstrates improper gun handling…
This morning, we brought Lulu to see the neurologist. We were greeted by a young intern who did the preliminary examination before we were joined by the good doctor. Noting my phone number and the fact that I was out of town, he asked what I was doing in Toronto. I informed him I was shooting a scifi series called Dark Matter. At the words Dark Matter, the intern slapped her hands over her mouth, her eyes wide, and gasped. For a second, I thought “Oh, no. She left the stove on!”. Instead, it was: “Dark Matter!”. Apparently, she’s a fan of the show!
Anyway, all good on the Lulu front. They doubt its neurological and suspect it may be a back issue that won’t require surgery. We’re going to try her on Metacam for a week and see if that makes a difference.
Finally, let me leave you with this –
Yeah! We’re going to Balda-9!
