For all of your Dark Matterly needs, head on over to the Dark Matter subreddit where I’ve started posting all of my behind the scenes photos and videos from the show’s three year run…
The Raza bridge design.

And much, much more!
Less than two weeks from production and we’re picking up speed. Cast locked down. Costumes and sets being built. Scripts for episodes 1 to 9 being rewritten. Yes, we have 9 out of 10 drafts which, on the surface, sounds crazy – but that’s only because it is. Yesterday, our 2nd AD marveled at the fact we were so ahead of the game to which our Production Manager, Cathy, remarked that, in her many years of television, she has only been on one other production where that was the case. The name of said production. Dark Matter of course.
Well, back to the ole drawing board on the outline for my (formerly titled) Untitled Awesome Project. It’s one of those instances where the seemingly minor notes will require a wholesale rethinking of the structure – something I don’t really have a mind to do given what’s on my plate. So, sadly, setting this one aside for the time being.
Meanwhile, that super BIG project is one step closer. We’re nailing down the pitch and then it’ll be smooooooth sailing! Let’s circle back in a week, shall we?
Alright, my day is done. Now, finally, time to unwind with the selection of a few scenes to send to casting for our First Block guest stars, then a pass on Episode 6, capped off with a review of our VFX Establishers. Ahhhhhhh. So relaxing!
