Today was Bring Your Daughter To Work (And Leave Her With Key Hair Expert Renee Chan While You Go Watch Blocking) Day!  Suji was a hit on set.  Thanks to Renee for dog-sitting her while I was taking in the action in the core room.

Speaking of which – here is director Melanie Orr’s – uh – blueprint for today’s first blocking.  Note the details including camera placement and pod.

  1. There you go again….
    Glad Bubba is hanging in there. Gotta love our little furballs. 🙂

  2. Suji is loving the attention; so cute! My episode title choice won, woo hoo!

    Sending more (HUGS) to Bubba.

  3. Awwwwwwww 🙂

    Is that Lego to scale? I’ve seen Stunt Co-ordinators use toy cars for stunt sequences but I’ve never seen a Director use Lego – cool!!!!!!!!

    That’s a pretty awesome job when you get to sit and pet Suji. I wonder what she thinks of the changes in her life. I love her Instagram.

    Cheers, Chev

  4. That IS a big charger!
    Not that it is the same thing but it bumped my flea brain to the early days of the ‘mobile’ Motorola phone when the battery was carried separately in a box you carried like a handbag (over your shoulder) and it took best part of the night to recharge…. The phone itself was as big as a brick and you had to keep it pointed in the direction of the signal.
    And then there were the video cameras …..
    Aaah, those were the days …

    Anyhoo, back to today. I want to comment about the Lego blocking set up and the number of characters there …. but I won’t cos I’ll be wrong (and a little disappointed)

    Bubba’s photo and words made me smile. Please give him his favourite fussing from Puddle 🐾 and me 😊

  5. New title ✔️

    Hugs ‘n’ Stuff for Bubba and Suji.

    I like the use of Lego 👍

    That is a big charger!
    Q – Who’s silhouette has been used for scale?

  6. I think the recent renewal for The Expanse looks great for Dark Matter. The Expanse premiered to a 0.25 for its second season and has pulled between a 0.1-0.2 ever since. The production values of this show look far higher than Dark Matters too. Frankly if The Expanse can get renewed, I would call Dark Matters fourth season a sure thing. The downside is the long wait for that announcement.

  7. Oo, oo. Got another question – if that’s ok?

    Joe, how do you choose the ‘Related’ section to the blog? Sometimes it has very recent blog links and sometimes blog links to the distant past – which are a real treat to read 😊 Thanks for these!

    And thanks for the mailbag too!

  8. Good teasers you got there!

    Sweet little Bubba. I’m thanking God he’s hanging in there!

    Love Suji’s tutu. 🙂

  9. Suji sitting on her royal pillow like the princess she is. Have you thought of giving the Ishida House a royal pet? Probably something vicious and disloyal….can you tell I haven’t gotten over Ryo’s betrayal yet?

    Love the Lego “blocking”. Poor 5 is on the table. Doubt she’s napping.

    Where’s a good transfer transit pod when you need it?
