How the RED One camera makes SCI FI's Sanctuary look good

The SCI FI Channel's Sanctuary is the first television series in North America to be shot entirely on the revolutionary RED One camera. The crew up in Vancouver, BC, were kind enough to show DVICE how the camera's insane resolution and tapeless recording system let them keep all their work in the digital domain — and at four times the resolution of HD.

Today's News: Our Take

Battlestar's Alessandro Juliani Dishes on Gaeta's New Love

Jan 12, 2009 09:41 AM ET by Erin Fox

Battlestar Galactica's 10-part webisode series "The Face of the Enemy" comes to a stunning conclusion Monday, four days before the show airs the premiere of its final season Jan. 16 (10 pm/ET, Sci Fi). In this stand-alone webisode series, Cylon model "8" (Grace Park) and Lt. Felix Gaeta (Alessandro Juliani) take center stage in a gripping tale of murder, betrayal and survival. Alessandro spoke with about filming the webisodes during the emotional end of the series, how he feels about the revelation that Gaeta has a boyfriend and much more.

A brief excerpt: And I'm sure working with Grace Park (Sharon/Cylon "8") was also really fun.
Juliani: Shooting the webisodes was hilarious. It was at the very, very end of Battlestar as we know it. The series had wrapped, and the prequel film that will come out after the end of the series had wrapped. It was just us: a skeleton crew and me and Grace and a few other actors. It felt like we were making a little student film or something. They were packing the set up around us in between takes. It was sad but kind of fitting; out not with a bang but a whimper. I think the last shot we ever did — you would have seen in the webisodes — was shot in a little tent that was supposed to be on New Caprica. If you had seen outside of the tent, you would have laughed because it looked like a construction site area.

January 11, 2009: The 4 Best Stargate: Atlantis Episodes I Never Got to Write

Over the course of the series run, many an idea gets pitched out that never ends up seeing the soft blue light of a laptop screen. For whatever reason (production concerns, similarity to other stories, a failure to excite the other writers, the fact that your idea is shite,
etc.), that seemingly golden notion that got you all excited when it first popped into your head while shampooing that morning languishes and dies in the writers' room. Looking back, I've had more than my fair share of such pitches, story ideas I figured would be home runs that ended up being pop flies. The following are The Top 3 Atlantis Episodes I Never Got to Write…

... Thanks to everyone who weighed in with their happy Atlantis memories. Tomorrow is the deadline to get in those questions for Paul Mullie. Tomorrow also marks the beginning of discussion of On Basilisk Station. Let's hear your thoughts and start posting your questions for author David Weber who will be paying us a little visit.

Finally, check out the run-through of Atlantis's final scene (video embedded at the link above).
