Judging by the pictures shared on Joseph Mallozzi’s Weblog, I think they passed “cold” a good 20 degrees ago, but they’re still moving along on Dark Matter’s second season production. The postman would be proud. Read and click on each day for a lot of new and fun information, pictures, and teasers.
After spending Super Bowl Sunday watching television someone else made, the Dark Matter crew jumped right back into action on Monday to make their own television. Dark Matter may not have quite as much running and kicking as the “big game” does, but they pack a lot more entertainment into a smaller amount of time. Also, less commercials.
Paul Mullie was doing prep work on episode 206. I know it’s just prep, but that’s almost the halfway mark for season 2! Joe was doing a rewrite on episode 209 and again offered fans a chance to vote for the episode title – this time episode 203. If you click on the link, you can also see some costume, prop, and set designs!
If you look at the pictures over at the link, you might think the crew took a day trip to Hoth. It must’ve been an equatorial part of Hoth, though, because even with all the ice and snow and multi-layered clothing there was talk of gators. Now, I grew up in and still live in a place where there are oodles of gators and I find that sign a bit dubious. Could be Ice Gators.
Mid-week shooting returned to the safety, but apparently not warmth, of the indoors. Everyone is fairly bundled up in the pictures and Joe put on so many layers he made a very appropriate reference to A Christmas Story. Just check the pics and you’ll see what I mean.
Today was the day we learned which episode 203 title was the winner, but as always you’ll have to click to find out. The art department’s creativity and hard work were showcased today, with glimpses of some cool logos, gun designs, and more.
The end of the week was all about behind the scenes pictures. Anthony Lemke (Three) can be seen modeling the latest in high fashion for the high security crowd. There was also a giant rock wall, but Vanessa Piazza wasn’t around to lift it up. Maybe she took the day off. Oh, but there’s lots more to see, like cast pictures, more sets, and a cool video of a graphic called Hold Pod Monitor. Sounds ominous and worth a click, no?
Unlike last Saturday, this one didn’t require anyone to work on the show, so it was all fun and friends and food and a few drinks. Well, except for Bubba, who got to wear a shark hat on Saturday. I want a shark hat for Saturdays.
Let’s just say that Sunday is a good day to do a whole lot of nothing. While I’m not experiencing any kind of inclement weather, Joe’s summed up his local climate with an animated GIF that perfectly captures the mood. Akemi didn’t forget it was Valentine’s Day and her pups received a bountiful benefit from their loving mama.
And that’s a wrap on this week in Dark Matter World, folks! Keep warm, stay frosty, I got your back.
