Plus it might become a series and that would make us all happy.
Except the poor actors who get replaced by bigger, prettier names.

How about ruggedly handsome? And I don't mean your wife

Re: "Polaris"

Carol, our makeup artist, arrived from L.A. this evening. She and Doug and I had dinner at Nick and Deb Gilbert's house - Nick was our catering/craft services guy in December. Anyway, Carol and Nick G. finally got to see an assembled scene from the movie and they both remarked on how great Nick Cook is in it.

An excellent list! I've given my fellow producers a copy of it!

Re: "Polaris"

Two days into out greenscreen shoot, and we're more or less on schedule, even though we rearranged some stuff. Sunday should prove challenging.

Re: "Polaris"

Famous Last Words:

"We'll have all day Sunday to shoot the fight scene."

I am - there's no way around it - in the early stages of geezerhood. By 12:00 midnight last night I was dead on my feet. And given my inexperience as a director, among other shortcomings, I'm probably the least qualified person in the room to direct a fight scene. This would be the "fight scene," above, which had been carefully scheduled to start shooting about ten hours earlier. God is just not interested in the intended schedules of directors.

DS9Sega saved the schedule by stepping in and directing it. Working with our Director of Photography Alex, the actors and crew hammered through the scene, which was choreographed by our actor Garrett Melich ("Gaitanis"), in about an hour. One pick-up with Garrett after that, we wrapped the Indian Head shoot around 1:00 AM this morning.

Garrett is a joy to work with - funny, thoughtful and endlessly patient - and although he's a scary effective villain he makes the character impossible to dislike - IMO, anyway.

Re: "Polaris"

To be fair to Dennis, I NEVER scheduled all day for the fight. I'd scheduled about 4 hours for it (1/3rd of the shoot day), and 4 hours for the scene that follows the fight and the rest of the day for Garrett miscellany. As it turned out, we moved stuff from Sunday's schedule to Saturday, which forced us to squeeze more hard stuff into Sunday.

And also to be fair, I didn't direct the fight. I did work with our D.P.--Alex--to suggest camera coverage for the climactic scene. When it came time to shoot the flight, really, the actors had worked it all out. All I did was tell Alex to call the shots and let the actors do their thing. As usual, my job was just to try to get everyone everything they need and push push push people to get stuff done.

Re: "Polaris"

Serious Captain R Serious.

Paul R. Sieber is not only a strong actor but he's a great leader on the set, keeping everyone's energy up during some pretty long days. We shot about 30-35 percent of the show this past Friday-Sunday.
