Is that woman on a "landing party" with two inch heels?
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.
Vektor's latest design work on the ship itself is here:
Vektor's work continues to be awesome as do the production photos.
"The crew of the Polaris ... you don't fuck with them, they don't fuck with you."
They are a solemn looking bunch there, aren't they?
Probably didn't help that they're looking into the sun.
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.
Maybe we could use them for comm chatter on the Command Deck.
A fun fact: the two equipment cases in this shot were just plain solid colored cases that were "taped" to add detail. It's amazing what a few inches of narrow art tape can do to make something visually interesting. The little rectangle was deliberately taped with white on two sides and black on the others to make it look like a raised detail. It actually works surprisingly well.
Reminds me of Mike Okuda, who turned that into an art form. He probably ordered masking tape by the truckload during his work on various Trek productions.
I actually learned that trick from Mike when he gave me a tour of the Star Trek Art Dept. back in 1990!
What is the purpose of the hex grid?
So they can play wargames, of course!
One of Doctor Young's overhead displays - either a bit of an homage or a quick cut-and-paste of text by someone running way behind schedule, take your pick:
Things don't tend to go well on that particular hunk of rock.
Gina Hernandez (Dr. Valerie Young) with Stephen the Otter, who insisted on being part of the crew...even though all he did was pig out at craft services and flirt with the pretty girls (okay, and boys).
Hey, if it's good enough for Hitchcock....
