April 27, 2016: Ice cream donut day on Dark Matter!

Today was a good news, back news, good news, bad news, good news day. Good news: I arranged to have a local ice cream donut truck swing by set this afternoon after lunch as a thank you to our amazing cast and crew.  Essentially it’s a European sugar and cinammon-encrusted donut, lined with nutella, and […]

April 26, 2016: New Dark Matter episode title revealed!

Love this guy!  I haven’t had this much fun working with a director since, well, one of the last times I worked with this director: https://josephmallozzi.wordpress.com/2008/05/02/may-2-2008-thats-a-wrap/ It’s been great hosting Will Waring on Dark Matter and I can’t wait to do it again – next season. Hey, we have a new episode title!  The fans have chosen: […]

April 24, 2016: That damned star field! Reading recommendations!

So, over on alt. Dark Matter twitter account (@DarkMatter_show) I uploaded the above pic, snapped very early on in the show’s first season.  It’s a beautiful set, beautifully lit, with gorgeous playback displays and…a truly awful star field out the front.  The production purchased it from somewhere in the middle east – and it didn’t come […]

April 23, 2016: Dark Matter goodies! And planning ahead!

The construction of the “big metal mystery doors” – Dark Matter, season 1.  Just a few of the BTS pics I’ll be uploading on a daily basis over at my dedicated Dark Matter twitter account (here: @DarkMatter_show).  Tell your friends! Also, bonus pic!  Alex Mallari Jr.’s (FOUR) very first costume fitting: All smiles.  Little did he know what […]

April 22, 2016: BTS pics! And pineapple!

Received these from VFX Supervisor Lawren Bancroft-Wilson this morning – two choices on the size of the Reynaud ship.  We’re thinking of going with 01 – bigger, more menacing.  What do you think? So, my new Dark Matter-centric twitter account (@DarkMatter_show) is off to a rollicking start.  I started it as an alternate account dedicated to […]

April 21, 2016: New Dark Matter episode title! And much love for Syfy International!

The votes have been tabulated and we have a new episode title!  In the end, this one wasn’t all that close either.  The results… “Episode 23: Take The Shot” Thanks for playing and stay tuned for a chance to weigh in on another Dark Matter episode title.  We have three more to name and less than three […]

April 19, 2016: Akemi’s birthday bash!

“Happy Birthday!”I said, handing my girlfriend, Akemi, her presents.  Then, as she reached for them, I pulled them back.  “You’ll have to wait until Monday to open them.”  And I set them aside. It was a sad cap to a disappointing birthday weekend that saw our planned Saturday Afternoon Picnic Lunch in the Park to […]

April 18, 2016: A Stargate reunion on Dark Matter!

Last month, it was Peter DeLuise.  This month, it’s Will Waring, another former Stargate veteran who’s in town to direct an episode of Dark Matter. It’s been ages since I’ve seen Will, much less worked with him, and he hasn’t changed a bit.  Still incredibly affable.  Still full of his trademark youthful exuberance.  Still scheming to find a […]

April 17, 2016: The Dark Matter picnic!

Because I just can’t get enough of them during our 12 hours workdays, I met up with members of the cast and crew this weekend for the very first Dark Matter Picnic!  Organized by Melissa O’Neil (TWO) and (conspicuously absent) Executive Producer Vanessa Piazza, the event promised  “fun, picnic potluck, and hangs!”, “12:30 onward til sun […]

April 16, 2016: Maintaining that all-important online presence!

At then end of this year, this blog will celebrate its tenth anniversary.  That’s ten straight years of daily blogging, over 3500 entries, and lots and lots of dog pictures.  It’s been a huge commitment, but an enjoyable one nevertheless.  The demands of daily posting leave me with little opportunity for much else in terms […]

April 15, 2016: Welcome to Zawraq-4!

Welcome to planetary station Zawraq-4.  Just a few things to get out of the way before we proceed…  Okay, now that that’s done, let’s proceed into the market.  Right after you read this… And this – Okay, then.  In we go – Right this way… They call him The Master of Hot Metal!  While some simply […]

April 14, 2016: New Dark Matter episode title revealed! Multiplanetary logos!

The polls have closed, the results tabulated, and we have a winner.  The fans have selected one more episode title for Dark Matter’s second season.  And, this time, it wasn’t all that close.  The results… “Episode 22: Doing Out Fighting” Thanks to everyone who took the time to vote! A busy morning, afternoon, and early evening on […]

April 12, 2016: Dark Matter – The Home Stretch!

Finally, there is light at the end of the tunnel!  Following a day chock full o’ meetings, we’re in the home stretch.  Episode 212 starts shooting on Monday – which means our season finale starts prepping that same day – which means YOU’RE all that much closer to watching Dark Matter’s second season! (Photo above courtesy of […]

April 12, 2016: Daggers, Dark Matter, and Drones! Ask Melissa!

We kicked off the day with our Episode 212 stunt meeting.  It mostly involved director Will Waring, stunt coordinator John Stead, and me debating the merits of various daggers.  With that done, I left the blades behind (despite my better judgement) and headed out for a two hour clear-the-air sit-down during which I watched a […]
