Heliopolis will ship all items to the winners at my expense, so I hope that you will all participate in the fundraiser. If this works out, Heliopolis may do it again next year with a larger selection of items and prizes. This is a chance to help keep Helio up and running, while possibly winning great fan prizes for yourself. I want to thank everyone who has donated, especially the person who donated several of these prizes and a lot of the money that helps keep Helio going. Thank you.

Lining up for the wraith team's free kick.

I went over the script one last time, then handed in after lunch. Finally, I’m done. Until, of course, I get the notes and have to begin the rewrite. Alex Levine, who went over the script before distributing it, had some thoughts. He found the Shen imbroglio too subtle (I thought it might be). He bumped on the end of Act IV and its resolution (I figured some would). He felt the reveal needed to be moved up and the big decision needed more of a build (Hey, man. Don’t come to me with problems. Come to me with solutions.). I expect feedback from everyone else in the not too distant future. Hopefully before we all go our separate ways this Friday. The rest of the gang is understandably busy. Still, we did find time to gather and discuss Martin’s script (a very special Stargate Atlantis). The highpoint of the afternoon’s progress was, of course, the place-holder title we came up with: Snow Globe. Ah, the satisfaction of another day’s work well done.

Robert Picardo - the Newest Star-Gatekeeper

By Bryan Cairns

posted: 09 June 2008 09:53 am ET

Some individuals are natural born leaders while others should never, ever, be out in a position of responsibility over anyone else. Richard Woolsey is one of those men. A pain in the ass bureaucrat whose frequent assessments have scrutinized both Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis teams, Woolsey’s intelligence and quest for the truth are only matched by his lack of tact or people skills. Nonetheless, when Colonel Samantha Carter is suddenly reassigned in the upcoming fifth season of Stargate: Atlantis, someone has the brilliant idea of making Woolsey the new commander of the otherworldly expedition.

“Frankly, when they hired me for the job, I went ‘Oh God, that's interesting!’” recalls actor Robert Picardo on the Stargate: Atlantis set. “Of course I love working here. I love the company. I'm treated beautifully and I love coming to Vancouver. So all the outside things were like ‘Yes, yes, of course I want to do it!’ Then there was a little voice going ‘Wait a minute! You've set this guy up as kind of an annoyance, a bit of a prig. I come in and evaluate you so you all better watch out and be on your best behavior! I'm going to find out who screwed up!’ Now suddenly he's the guy in charge and he's a briefing room guy. He's a think tank personality. Woolsey is not a leader. He evaluates other leaders. He's got a terrific legal mind, he knows the military rule book, knows all the rules about protocol, eliminating collateral damage, and acceptable losses but he doesn't make decisions. Woolsey just comes in and tells you how you screwed up.”

The Movie Network and Movie Central announce new original drama series set for production

BANFF, AB, June 9 /CNW/ - Astral Media's The Movie Network (eastern Canada) and Corus Entertainment's Movie Central (western Canada) today announced production dates for the original drama series Sanctuary...

Currently in production in Vancouver until September 10, 2008, Sanctuary is a 13-episode series that is shot almost entirely on green screen using cutting-edge visual effects and the latest in camera technology. Sanctuary is commissioned by The Movie Network, Movie Central as well as SCI FI Channel in the U.S. and will premiere in October 2008.


Sanctuary is the first television series in North America to use the RED camera, a digital system that captures images at more than double the resolution of a high definition-camera. The series follows the adventures of the beautiful and enigmatic Dr. Helen Magnus, her new and somewhat reluctant protégé Will Zimmerman and her fearless daughter Ashley, as they track down, study and try to help the strange and often terrifying creatures that secretly populate our world. Sanctuary stars Amanda Tapping (Stargate SG-1), Robin Dunne (Dawson's Creek), Emilie Ullerup and Christopher Heyerdahl. Helmed by some of the innovative talents behind Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis, the series creative team includes executive producer and creator Damian Kindler; executive producer and lead actor Amanda Tapping; and executive producer and director Martin Wood. In addition, Sam Egan (Jeremiah, The Outer Limits) serves as executive producer and writer and [N.] John Smith (Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis) and Keith Beedie as executive producers. Sanctuary is produced by Stage 3 Media Inc. and distributed by Tricon Films and Television.
