“Your writing partner likes to tweet.”
– Pointed observance made by an executive to my long-time writing/producing partner on his recent trip to L.A.
Well, yes and no. No insofar as I hate the 140 character limit and don’t really find twitter a suitable medium for relaying opinions and in-depth information outside of links. But yes in that it’s a terrific way to get the simple facts out like: “Dark Matter was one of Syfy’s most-watched scripted shows of 2017!”.
Still, very sweet of him to notice.
Which reminds me. Amidst all the thank you’s to cast and crew and fans, I neglected my extra special shout-out to the members of the Dark Council, the DM fans behind those Dark Matter FTL Drives that saw our little show trending weeks and days on end.
And so, thank you to…
Hilda Clark Bowen who put in many tireless hours amid the innumerable things she had to juggle in her own life.
Tom Gardiner who fought the good fight and, “coincidentally” had his syfy screener privileges revoked soon after writing an article critical of the show’s cancellation.
Kelli and Lance Zielinski, the dynamic duo and techy twosome who helped lay the groundwork for all those FTL Drives.
Syrine Epiome representing the overseas contingent with a wealth of ideas and some mighty marvelous artwork.
Lo Ren who helped keep the dream alive with some amazing graphics to drive the campaign.
Elise Cochrane, another member of Team Europe, who went above and beyond the call to help spread the word.
Thank you all.
