September 30, 2020: And one from the Dark Matter vault!

Those who know me know that I'm a huge anime fan. Back in Vancouver, my collection was 3000 dvd's deep. So it should come as no surprise that Dark Matter was heavily influenced by the genre, everything from the character of FOUR and his connection to the Principality of Zairon to FIVE who is a…

August 13, 2020: Stargate Stuff! And the Crime Club convenes to discuss Caché!

I was going through my old hard drives and came across a slew of Stargate-related photos.  Unfortunately, the cable, as well as the hard drive itself, are a little wonky and I'm only able to snag a handful of photos at a time before the connection is severed.  But this is what I got so…

Fan Support! A Sci-Fi Survey! And the SG-1 Elite Eight!

Wow.  Tuesday I mentioned that Playback article detailing some of the projects Vanessa Piazza and I have in development, among them a sci-fi series called TimEscape.  Well, yesterday fans, clearly impatient for another rollicking sci-fi show, got the ball rolling by establishing a TimEscapeHQ twitter account.  It's early, as several pieces still have to fall…

July 25, 2019: The waiting is the hardest part!

People (Generally, those not in the industry) react with amazement when they find out I'm juggling multiple development projects.  I'm sure they imagine me working 24/7, going from one project to the next, with little room for rest.  Sadly, however, this couldn't be further from the truth.  Much of "development" is waiting. Waiting for someone…

July 4, 2019: Super Secret Projects Revealed!

Finally. Over the course of the past few months, I've been making vague references to a total of SEVEN different projects I'm currently work on, all in varying stages of development.  There's that comic book adaptation and that horror novel adaptation and my (formerly) Untitled Awesome Project and that small-town horror and that BIG comic…

March 25, 2019: Production Day #1

Rolling! Yes, finally, after months of development, writing, designing, world-building, set and costume construction, and meetings, meetings, meetings, today was our first day of principal photography!  On set today were the former lieutenant, the former Agent, and the former bounty hunter - along with several others. Boy, if this was Dark Matter, I'd be posting…

January 10, 2019: Back in my old stomping grounds!

A bittersweet trip back to the site of my previous series, Dark Matter, today as we start early prep on this new show.  I have, to the best of my ability, sought to reassemble the same behind-the-scenes team that made DM such a great experience.  If all goes as planned, I'll be moving back into…

14 Ridiculous Plot Twists That Hurt Syfy Shows – Or Were They?

I came across this interesting Screen Rant article today by Toby Symonds which offers up his take on what he felt were ridiculous plot twists (and a few that weren't) on shows that aired on syfy.  Among the culprits was the decision NOT to kill of Ronon Dex in the Atlantis finale and the decision…

November 17, 2018: The Projects, Poll, and Fried Chicken Update!

Well, this past Thursday afternoon, we pitched Untitled Awesome Project to a broadcaster.  As you may (or may not) know, I'm especially excited about this one as it's a notion that (like Dark Matter) was many years in the making.  And by "many years in the making" I mean that, like Dark Matter, I came…

November 12, 2018: Distant Dark Matter Rumblings

When Dark Matter was cancelled a little over a year ago, I was left somewhat frustrated, kind of annoyed, a more than a little pissed.  For various reasons.  I was frustrated because I wouldn't be able to complete the story I'd mapped out, annoyed by what I felt was a petty and vindictive decision, and…
