I have a plan. I’ve had one from the day we started production on Dark Matter’s first episode, a plan that spans five 13-episode seasons and includes character and story arcs with beginnings, middles, and endings. I know exactly where we’re going and knowing in advance allows us the all-too-rare opportunity to sprinkle our narrative with clues, little hints of what’s to come that will pay off along the way. Small adjustments are inevitable, but the big picture story and pay-offs remain in play. And it hasn’t always been easy. Sure, there are the expected production demands – the writing, the prepping, the editing, the various other duties, and the long, long hours, but then there are the unexpected curveballs that come at you from people who really should know fucking better, those square peg in round hole annoyances that crop up every so often and leave a lot of people shaking their heads in dismay. I mean, really?
On the bright side, series co-creator Paul Mullie delivered a great pass on the latest script. We are flying! Episode 305 already preps when we get back on January 3rd!
No time to stop the production train for lollygaggers. If you can’t keep up, catch a flight and we’ll meet you at the next station!
Lunch with sis and mom at Smoked Meat Pete.
Every time I visit, I always make it a point to hit Pete’s for the best smoked meat in town. Their fries aint too shabby either.
And, while we ate sandwiches, Lulu had lobster…
