Re: "Polaris"

Not to give away any major spoilers or plot points, but depending on how a couple of scenes are cut I might have a walk-through (or more likely, sit-down) in the background of one or two shots. Most of us crew got into an outfit at one time or another. Mine is the coolest because DS9Sega designed it as a kind of flight suit.

When I started this, I swore that I wouldn't play a part in it. Acting is a full-time job on the set, as is directing...as is being a producer, for that matter. We all did more than one job behind the scenes, but having been involved in a couple of other productions I knew better than to complicate things unnecessarily.

This image reminds me of all the little bits of improvisation that happen on a film set. The open case in the background wasn't intended to be opened, so when it was decided that Dr. Young (Gina Hernandez) should look like she's taking her scanner gear out of it, it turned out the case just didn't look good open, so I raided some tools from Associate Producer Doug Caprette's kit and "dressed" the case interior with those so that if the camera caught a glimpse of the case it wouldn't look like an empty gray shell...which it was.

Is that woman on a "landing party" with two inch heels?

Re: "Polaris"

Doctor Young is not a particularly practical soul, gods bless her, as is noted at one point by Nick Cook's character.

I kind of wanted to give her a pith helmet and a chinese fan to go with the safari jacket and heels, but was talked out of it by folks with more taste.

Re: "Polaris"

They are a solemn looking bunch there, aren't they?

Probably didn't help that they're looking into the sun.

Re: "Polaris"

I think the show is looking fairly awesome even at this early stage. We screened the first eight minutes to cast and crew during the location shoot weekend, and I think it holds together pretty well. I can't wait to get my hands on the location footage so I can start adding it into the edit.

In the meantime, I'm in the midst of shooting and editing some new music videos for The Kinsey Sicks. I'm rough assembling the footage from the first shoot right now, which is a wholly different kind of editing than cutting Polaris! For instance, continuity doesn't matter at all.
