Spent my afternoon in editing with the lovely Wendy Hallam-Martin, working on the John Stead-directed Episode 204. LOTS going on in this one. An alternate title I was going to throw into the mix “Space Station Are Dangerous” didn’t make the cut because it literally did not make the cut. Ah, well. Still, a lot of great contenders to choose from (including Akemi’s favorite, “Hello, Titch”).
While director Bruce McDonald started shooting Episode 206 this morning, I was starting prep on Episode 207 with a new (to Dark Matter) director. I know him for his work in front of the camera but have heard A LOT of great things about him both personally and professionally. And, if today was any indication, we’ll probably have a slew of great stories to add once this episode wraps.
We had a great visit from the gang at NBCUniversal yesterday. They’ve been nothing but super supportive of Dark Matter and we GREATLY appreciate their genuine love for the show. They’ve been instrumental in helping us break viewership records overseas and, I have no doubt, the best is yet to come.
A few Shadow variations, compliments of our regular supplier, Victoria Klein. We opted for the darker green.
Should you be inclined to take a hit, you’re going to need one of these.
Prep continues tomorrow with back to back to back meetings: Art Department, Costumes, Graphics and Playback. And, of course, more writing.
The writing never ends.
Tune in tomorrow for more Dark Matter goodies and the reveal of a brand new episode title. And there’s still time to vote!
