A skeleton buried deeply within the earth. Tons of green screen work. And basketball. What exactly do these three things have to do with Episode 407 of your favorite TV show? First of all, that skeleton (pictured above) is UBER important. Secondly, there really is a very exciting green screen visual effects moment that works as a critical story set-up in the episode (more on that later). But basketball?
Yeah, I just like sports.
But all three things were, indeed, present on the set of 407 when yours truly, Story Editor Eric Wallace, had a chance to visit our brilliant cast and crew up in Vancouver, Canada recently. Don't believe me? How about proof? Yup, that’s Niall Matter aka Zane Donovan with me in my Lakers shirt.
A quick explanation: The NHL playoffs were happening while I was up there, and let me tell you… as much as I like basketball, football, and tennis our wonderful Eureka crew loves hockey a whole lot more. Hmmm. Zane and Jo Lupo in skates? I sense a story pitch coming on…
Now I can’t actually tell you what happens in 407 (sorry, no spoilers here). But I can tell you the episode was directed by our own Henry Deacon, the multi-talented Joe Morton. That’s Joe in action directing actor Colin Ferguson below.
If you think Joe brings passion to his role as Eureka’s loveable Henry Deacon, you should see him in the director’s chair. Seriously, the man is constantly in motion as exemplified by the huge number of blurry photos I have of him on set. Oh, and as promised here’s a picture of that mysterious green screen in action.
Oh, and for those who are wondering exactly what a large green screen is used for on set… it’s put there to create a neutral background behind the actors during a scene. Then later during the post production process, our VFX Executive Producer Matt Gore will fill in all that green space with something cool, awesome, and spectacular (Go, Matt, go!).But don’t think that just because there are tons of spiffy visual effects in 407 that there’s not also some great emotional scenes for our actors to sink their teeth into. Check out Salli Richardson-Whitfield aka new GD working mom Allison Blake, going over her lines between takes. And yes, her performance in this episode will make you laugh and cry. Why? C’mon. You should know by now I’m not telling...
Well, there’s so much more I could tell you about what it’s like on a Eureka set. Like how our Director of Photography Rick Maguire is a master of the craft (just wait until you see the look of our show in Season Four – it’s going to blow you away). Oh, and there are some amazing new sets this season designed by Lance King, our Production Designer. And the food on a Eureka set? To. Die. For. Thanks to Gordie & Jeremy Wise for keeping everyone well fed!
But hey… I’m going to stop now before I start letting story details slip. I know you want to be surprised. No? Okay, then… here’s the skinny. Episode 407 is all about—
DEAR EUREKA FANS:
THIS PARAGRAPH HAS BEEN REDACTED
UPON PAIN OF DEATH. HERE’S ANOTHER PICTURE OF OUR TALENTED CAST INSTEAD.
I know, right?
All of that sounds pretty cool! So tune in starting July 9th to see how it all turns out.
Today's the birthday of our awesome script coordinator, John Herrera! We celebrated with strawberry-rhubarb pie, which apparently was tricky to come by -- Meghan and our intern Ivy finally tracked one down miles and miles away. But it was worth it. Mmmm, pie!
Happy Birthday, John!
