Wednesday, September 5, 2007

A late blog entry today as I was on location at Green Timbers for day #4 of Harmony. A very exciting outing today highlighted by an owl sighting that effectively shut down production. We were in the midst of setting up the next shot when somebody shouted: “Hey! It’s an owl!” And the next thing I knew, everyone had cleared out. I caught up with the crew beneath the large tree they had gathered around to gaze up at the magnificent bird. “Ooooh,”marveled one of the women from make-up. “Beautiful,”remarked an A.D. “I think I can hit it from here,”muttered a hopeful David Hewlett.

Eventually, the owl flew off and the disappointed crew grudgingly returned to work. Good thing too as we had a lot to get through today: six forest scenes which including a couple of crane shots for the “And why would they want to kill her?” sequence (I swear, that’s what it says on the call sheet) and some EXT. NIGHT. I’m pleased to report all went well and that, unlike yesterday, none of our actors came into contact with any poison oak. Yep, it was smooooth sailing…until around 7:30 p.m. when someone shouted “The owl’s back!” and everyone dropped what they were doing to go see.

We had kicked the long day off with Martin Wood presiding over the splinter unit filming of the Trio tease. Jewel and Amanda made an early appearance and were wrapped around noonish. Hopefully, they went home to get a good night’s sleep in preparation for tomorrow afternoon’s big “harness test”. I’ll be sure to have my camera handy for that.


Today’s Pics: BamBam invites you to meet his friends Pleased to Meet You and Good Night, DOP Jim Menard screws up Evil Kenny's photo op, Director Martin Wood presides over the Trio splinter unit search for the leprechaun's gold, while Terry keeps them on script, setting up the shot, the owl, Joe serenades the owl.

Mailbag (only covering the questions I was able to save and bring with me before leaving the house this morning):

Steph writes: “…in Trinity, when Ronon shoots his Commander, Teyla says that they will not speak of it again. Will it ever be resolved?”

Answer: It was resolved. Ronon killed him.

PG15 writes: “1) Can we expect some major Emotional Shep Whump (ESW) in Outcast? 2) In fact, would you say that season four has more Shep whumping than the other seasons? 3) Would you call the 3 episodes of “The Kindred” and “The Last Man” a 3-parter? If so, would it be connected as a mid-season 3-parter? 4) After confirming that Carson will be back for 2 episodes in May, has that number changed in the 2 months following that?”

Answers: 1) There will be definitely be some emotional shep whump in Outcast. 2) Yes. 3) I wouldn’t call it a 3-parter, However, they are definitely connected. 4) No.

David Hewlett 101

So, coming up on Canadian Spotlight, we'll have David Hewlett talking about his new movie, A Dog's Breakfast.

Here's the story of why I wanted 'A Dog's Breakfast' on Canadian Spotlight. David Hewlett wrote, directed and starred in the movie. He also funded it. Wikipedia says he spent about a hundred grand, which isn't much for a movie. He borrowed equipment, borrowed friends, and used what he had available. And then… he sold it to MGM! His first movie! Now, if I made a movie, I'd go bankrupt. David sold his to MGM. Even though David isn't a poor man (it looks like he's been working pretty steadily and is now the lead on a TV show… but it's not 'Friends' or something so I doubt he's raking in twenty million a season) I still think it's a pretty cool success story.

So, if you don't know who David Hewlett is, don't worry! I've done some research for you! I'm the kind of person who, if I'm going to interview someone, wants to know the answers before I even ask the questions. I want to have at least an idea of where the interview is going to go. So, I scoured the internet, and this is what I came up with:


Now that you've been educated on David Hewlett and the 'A Dog's Breakfast' story, I hope you'll listen to Canadian Spotlight next week. Tuesday at eight. You can listen live on our website at if you're not in the listening area, or you can log on here on Wednesday.
