I received a few comments after yesterday’s blog entry in which I considered early retirement to Tokyo once Dark Matter ends. Ideally, in such a scenario, that would be two years from now after the show’s fifth and final season (although certain cast members have already started lobbying for an SG-1-like 10 year run). There is, of course, the possibility of another series (or two) in my future. My military SF pilot is in play and I am actively pursuing the opportunity to revive two classic scifi shows I used to watch as a kid. It’s all very preliminary, but any of the aforementioned would be fantastic projects. Still, in the end, if none of them pan out and Dark Matter is my swan song, I’m satisfied with the mark I’ll have left on SF television – with over 350 hours of produced scifi television to my credit and 100+ hours as a credited writer. All in all, not bad for a comic/anime/SF geek whose Halloween ensembles included Han Solo, Wolverine, and Captain James T. Kirk.
Today, we were shooting in the Ferrous Corp lab. Another amazing set by Production Designer Ian Brock and his team.
I need these screens for my office.

More early goodbyes! Last day for AD and fellow book enthusiast Natalie.
And also for Sound department’s Drew Williams who is, understandably, saddened at the prospect of turning in his boom and doing a slow Charlie Brown shuffle into the sunset.
And a first and final sitdown in post with my old pal David Thompson, a fantastic editor.
Uh, guys! She’s right behind me, isn’t she?
