May 29, 2016: Cutie and the Boxer and the Pug!

So, a couple of weeks ago, Akemi and I watched a documentary about artist Ushio Shinohara and his wife (and fellow artist) Noriko.  Ushio is known for his boxing paintings which involve him donning a pair of boxing gloves, dipping them in paint, and then pummelling out his artistic expression on canvas. The film, by Zachary […]

May 27, 2016: Odds ‘n ends, Dark Matter and otherwise!

This morning, I attended my last mix in Toronto.  I can’t tell you how awesome this new season of Dark Matter looks and sounds.  Everything from the visuals to the soundscape to the music is incredible and an enormous ramp-up from the show’s first season.  We have a lot of very talented people working on this show, […]

May 26, 2016: A first look at our new ship – the Ishida Cruiser!

Door to the bridge – under construction. The bridge – under construction.  Lights, monitors, texturing and details still to come. From the outside looking in. One of the command consoles. Closer… I’m thinking a rotating command chair up front and center. Shooting on the bridge of the Ishida cruiser. Tagged: #DarkMatter, Dark Matter

May 23, 2016: Presenting the 2015 Rogue Star Award Winners!

Here’s the thing about awards, awards shows, and awards organizations.  The best nominee doesn’t always win.  Hell, the “best” nominee rarely ever wins because, in spite of what people tell you or what camp you happen to fall into, the vast majority of people base their votes on friendships, familiarity, popularity,  ideas, or messages.  Those […]

May 22, 2016: A lazyish summer weekend! And a brand new space station!

Sort of.  While Bubba was working on his tan and Lulu was working the dog park crowd, I was seemingly overseeing the action but actually working on two fronts: Dark Matter and my new super-secret SciFi project.  In the case of the former, I’ve already forwarded my team my game plan for the show’s third season so […]

May 20, 2016: Dinner with #2Boss!

Our Toronto Farewell Tour continued last night at Ufficio Restaurant with Melissa O’Neil, Dark Matter’s kick-ass commander, TWO.  On this occasion, decidedly less ass-kick and plenty more discussing and dining was on the agenda.  A few of the dishes we killed – Giant Portuguese squid ink arancini, pomodoro & fried basil. Potato crema tortellini with smoked ramp butter […]

May 19, 2016: Dogs! Food! Fans! And fun!

“Captain America is weakest.  He has only frisbee.  And the ugliest mask, and he knows it’s ugly – that’s why sometimes he doesn’t wear.” – Akemi on Captain America We’re two weeks away from boarding a plan back to Vancouver.  As you can see, Lulu and Bubba are ready to go…BUT will have to shave […]

May 18, 2016: My new show!

I’d like to say that it came to me in a dream but, in truth, it came to me as I was lying wide awake at 5:30 a.m.  My french bulldog had stirred me out of a deep slumber, pacing around until I got up to let her out and, once her business was done, […]

May 15, 2016: Dinner with Ellen and Adam! More Dark Matter BTS pics!

Yesterday, Akemi and I continued our Goodbye Tour by hitting Lamesa Filipino Kitchen with two of our favorite fun new Toronto friends, Ellen and Adam.  Besides being super cute herself, Ellen shares Akemi’s affinity for super cute things so the two of them really hit it off.  As for Adam, he’s incredibly easy-going and down-to-earth. […]

May 14, 2016: Farewell, Jodelle!

We wrapped production on Dark Matter’s second season last week and, slowly but surely, the cast and crew have moved on to different things: plans, projects, cities. I’m in town for three more weeks, finishing up my cuts of the final few episodes, sitting in on a few mixes, and saying goodbye to anyone who’s still around. […]

May 13, 2016: Dark Matter season 2 trailer! An analysis!

There you have it. Another brilliant promo from the gang at Syfy Publicity & Marketing.  LOTS going on here.  The images whip by so quickly, it’s really hard to get a sense of what, exactly, is going on. Thankfully, this is the age of screen grabs.  So, without further ado, let’s deconstruct the Dark Matter season 2 trailer […]

May 12, 2016: All things Dark Matter!

I was on a conference call this morning with some 40 members of the Syfy International team representing Brazil, Germany, France, Spain, Portugal, Latin America, the U.K., Poland, and the Middle East.  We talked Dark Matter‘s performance overseas (we’re a hit!), what lies ahead for season 2 (big BIG things!), and marketing & publicity ideas for […]
