And that’s a wrap on Dark Matter 2016! We capped off production with a tri-episode three director extravaganza.
Steve DiMarco kicked things off with a pursuit through ethereal environs. But who’s chasing who? The answers will shock. Then it was John Stead getting the last few scenes from our season 3 opener. And, finally, Bruce McDonald completed the day – and Episode 302 – with a some big time trouble on the Marauder.
While all this was happening on set, I was back at the office, taking in the Episode 303 production meeting (full steam ahead!), a notes session (hmmmmmm), a budget update meeting (so far, so good), and then a sit-down with Episode 303 (former “I’ve Seen The Other Side Of You”) director Steve DiMarco. Over the course of most of the afternoon – and several rounds of Nikka Coffey whisky – we discussed his upcoming episode, the film and television industry, memorable experiences in the trenches, and surprisingly similar musical affinities for the works of Ministry and The Prodigy.
Love the guy.
Hey, it’s our production Christmas gift courtesy of Jay Firestone and Prodigy Pictures: a warm hat for those cold location shooting days, some hot chocolate from SOMA, and a festive card depicting The Raza subbing in for Santa’s sleigh.
Today, I wore my new tie compliments of Anita in wardrobe who actually took the time to make it!
Line Producer Norman Denver shows off his team colors – Everton! It’s funny. I thought for sure the sorting hat would have put him in Hufflepuff.
The Dark Matter whiskey/y club convenes for its final 2016 gathering. Kanpai!
Okay, I’ve got two days to finish my Christmas shopping, run all of my errands, and prep for the drive to Montreal. What podcasts should I download for the 4-5 hour drive? Suggestions?
