Pictured above: My french bulldog, Lulu, let’s me know she’s ready to head back home.
And good thing to because, after weeks of prep, 90+ days of production, and seemingly interminable meetings, mixes, and migraines, we are Vancouver-bound. I’ll be waking up tomorrow
bright dark and early – 4 a.m.! – and head out with the dogs for a nice little walk, make sure they’re good and emptied out. Our pick-up is at 5 a.m. for a 6:50 a.m. flight out, the first of the day! Let me tell you, production can be incredibly challenging but nothing equals the stress of flying with your dogs. Lulu usually quiet as a mouse but Bubba, my 13 (almost 14) year old pug can get a little cranky when he’s hungry. Cranky and vocal, wailing like a child during the in-flight meal service. BUT, it’s only five hours in the air (and roughly 30 minutes on either side) and then we’re back home and I can finally relax.
Juuuuust kidding. There’ll be no relaxation for me. I’ve got interviews lined up online and over on imgur.com, an upcoming reddit AMA, and my relentless online campaign to get the word out in advance of our July 1st season 2 premiere. There’s that new pilot I’ve been working on (30 pages in!) and, oh yeah, starting June 13th, the Dark Matter writing department convenes to break stories for the show’s third season. No, we haven’t been picked up…yet…but having seen the first five finished episodes, I’m feeling confident audiences are going to be blown away. And that official pick-up will soon follow.
And, once we’re underway, I’m coordinating with the teams at Syfy digital and SyfyInternational on some fantastic fan giveaways. Stay tuned!
