Today, we kicked off official prep on this new sci-fi series with a good old-fashioned concept meeting. In attendance: show creator/director/Executive Producer R.T. Thorne, myself, and a bunch of familiar faces from my Dark Matter days (including Production Manager Catherine Lang, Production Designer Ian Brock, Art Director Kelly Diamond, Graphics Roxanne Borris, Costume Designer Noreen Landry, Props Master Victoria Klein, Line Producer Robbie David, and On Set Producer Ivon Bartok). I welcomed everyone back after a refreshing two year hiatus and then we rolled right into our first two episodes, touching on everything from force shields to holograms, night shoots to mealworms. We went from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., stopping only for a quick lunch and a conference call with the network to discuss music, casting, and genetics.
Tomorrow, the Wardrobe and Art Department convene for the big palette meeting.
I shit you not.
Prep Day #1 look = blue suit, black design shirt, red lantern cufflinks, pocket handkerchief, and ninja cat socks.
Slowly restocking my in-office whiskey collection.
And thanks to my buddy Jeff, I no longer have to drink straight out of the bottle.
Hey. Who called this meeting?
A little pre-paint wall texture.
Frank and Rick.
Craig and Mean Jean.
And this seems to be coming along nicely. Whatever it is.
Meanwhile, one step closer on both the Untitled Awesome Project and the Super Project.
It’s gonna be a big month!
