Today’s work day started with a dog and, appropriately enough, ended with one as well. I rolled onto set for the 7:30 a.m. call and the first thing I did was meet Key Grip Chris Toudy’s new addition to his extended family, an adorable Mexican street dog named Oslo –
Ah, this takes me back to the good old days on Stargate when dogs roamed the production offices, sitting in on story meetings, racing through the corridors and, occasionally, stealing Michael Shanks’ tuna sandwiches.
Everyone has done such a terrific job this season, but I want to make special mention of the Art Department (lead by Production Designer Ian Brock and Art Director Russell Moore) and everyone from construction and paints who worked doubly, often triply hard this year to bring these impressive sets to life.
Meanwhile Costume Designer Noreen Landry and her team in wardrobe are working their butts off as well, creating some eye-popping designs including someone’s new work-in-progress coat.
As I mentioned in yesterday’s entry, today you have the chance to vote on an all-new episode title. You have chosen all five Dark Matter season 2 episode titles to date. A little refresher…
“Episode 14: Welcome To Your New Home”
“Episode 15: Kill Them All”
“Episode 16: I’ve Seen The Other Side Of You”
“Episode 17: We Were Family”
“Episode 18: We Voted Not To Space You”
And now it’s time to cast your ballot for the Episode 206 title. Your choices are…
Poll closes in 24 hours! Tell your friends!
Finally, like I said at the top of this entry, my day started with a dog and ended with one as well. From set, I headed back to the office for the production meeting, the notes meeting on Episode 209 with Jay, then back to set for the cast read-thru of Episode 208, then back to the office to put out some blue pages, then over to editing where I completed my producer’s cut of Episode 205 and went over 206. On my way out, I dropped in on fabulous Wendy Hallam Martin who had her dog, Coal, in for the day, assisting with the editor on Episode 207.
Waah. No sooner do I complete this entry than I receive the updated work-in-progress producer’s editor of Episode 206. Well, you all know what I’ll be doing tonight!
