Seriously, people. You’ve been warned. Proceed at your own risk.
Well, coming off a one-day weekend to a work week packed with early morning meetings, late night cuts, set sitting, writing, rewrites, and phone calls, I’m running on low battery setting. Compounding the chaos was another one of those curveballs that forced us to scrap a script idea, reorder the line-up and, most importantly (and alarmingly), drop a new script into the Episode 9 slot. 12 pages into the script I’m currently writing, I’ve had to switch gears to brainstorm a new story with Paul, Ivon, Alison, and Elliot, one I’m going to have to jump on immediately. Or as soon as I have an outline I’m happy with.
After being unable to identify the movie that graced the mess hall triptych last week (Rogue One as it turned out), I discovered this much more recognizable still awaiting me this week. Open the pod bay doors, Hal. I’m putting in a request for John Carpenter’s The Thing.
The master of the triptych, Playback Operator Greg Whiteside, is full of surprises.
The calm before the storm. 10 minutes before first blocking (say, 7:20 a.m.) – Director JB Sugar and the team.
From the Dark Matter Art Department – the Taliphus-8 Safety Deposit Box. Where’s Taliphus-8? What’s in the box? Who’s the mystery silhouette?
I received this at the office today – a Mallozzi/Aota pup calendar from person(s) unknown (the name of sender was so tiny, I could’t make it out). Thank you, mystery person. We love it!
So I’m going to try to catch up on the mailbag this weekend. If you have anymore questions, just post them in the comments section and I’ll eventually get to them.
