Check out the cool slot box label outside my office door. “Executive Producer” would have been fine, but they went ahead and included “Showrunner” – which is nice, but I would’ve preferred “The Commodore”. In fact, that’s how I’d like to be referred to moving forward.
It wasn’t my first choice, but Natalie Cooper already snagged that.
Hey, check it out! Revised versions of episodes #1 and #2, just in time for the Art Department meeting…which also included props, costumes, and construction.
2:00 p.m. I arrived promptly, eager to get started.
2:10 p.m. Who called this meeting? Beginning to suspect I’m the victim of some elaborate practical joke.
2:27 p.m. I’m overcome with concern for the other attendees. Have they been kidnapped? Accidentally locked themselves in the linen closet? Worry gives way to panic and, ultimately, sleepiness.
2:43 p.m. I doze off but eventually wake up feeling refreshed. Only to discover it’s the next day. And someone took my wallet.
Random point of discussion. We’re going projectiles over lasers and blasters. For the most part.
Our awesome Supervising Art Director, the amazing Kimberly Zaharko, generating these handy preliminary set lists for episodes 1-3. Color-coded to boot! Dark blue for VFX, light brown for Construction and Paint, dark green for Playback, light green for Graphics, grey for Props, white for Special Effects, and invisible ink for the Subliminal Message Department.
I came in this morning to discover that Alison and Trevor had redecorated, turning their desks around to face out toward the windows and daylight (and freedom) instead of facing the walls and dreary grey bulletin board. Not sure how I feel about this. I thought the scattering of lone thumbtacks was a nice touch, holding the promise of something more – an Art Department schematic, a colorful print, a Tiger Beat centrefold of Robby Benson – while simultaneously crushing their spirits. Also, this makes it much harder for me to sneak up on them whenever the mood strikes. :(
