February 21, 2016: A trip down memory lane with you!

Josephmallozzi's Weblog

Last week, I almost convinced Akemi that we should adopt a senior pug.  More to the point – I did convince her that we should adopt THIS 10 year, 9 lb bundle of joy –


It seemed such a sure thing that Akemi was entertaining a possible name change to Konatsu (a type of Japanese orange) while I was considering how to break the news to our sometime travel companion (and blog regular) Jeff who could be charged with escorting the newest addition to our family on our next Toronto trip. Sadly, however, things did not work out.  Apparently the old gal has a bit of a temper and doesn’t play well with others – specifically, other dogs.  And, even more specifically, other dogs who tend to roam too closer to her food bowl (which Bubba has been known to do on occasion).

So, no Konatsu for us.  I am truly…

May 8, 2016: The Dark Matter wrap party!

Josephmallozzi's Weblog

It’s the end of another season of Dark Matter and I can’t help but consider it a bittersweet conclusion to another fantastic year.  On the one hand, I’m very proud of what we’ve accomplished and am looking forward to a little time off.  On the other hand, I’m genuinely going to miss my extended family, this cast and crew, with whom I’ve spent the better part of my days these past seven months.

Last night, we said our goodbyes in fine style with drinks, dance, drinks, food, and drinks…

May 7, 2016: Shaun Sipos joins the cast of Dark Matter!

Josephmallozzi's Weblog


The official announcement came yesterday over on Deadline.com.  Actor Shaun Sipos joins the cast of Dark Matter.  Here’s the article:

Shaun Sipos Joins Dark Matter

Sipos will play Devon, a once world class surgeon, who is haunted by a dark past that may pose a danger to himself and his fellow crew members.

Sipos.  Sipos.  Now why does that name sound familiar?

Oh, yeah!  Shaun’s sister, Jessica, played Tash, the mercenary with the weird sibling bond, back in the show’s first season (Episodes 210-211).

Having worked with both, I can personally attest to the fact that Shaun and Jessica share clear genetic predispositions.  They’re both terrific actors, exceedingly charming, and two of the nicest people you could ever hope to spend time with.

Tonight’s the Dark Matter wrap party.  I’m off to limber up for my treacherous signature dance moves (Professional dancer on closed dance floor.  Do…

May 6, 2016: And that’s a main unit wrap on Dark Matter season 2!

Josephmallozzi's Weblog


That’s it!  Today marked the end of main unit photography on Dark Matter’s second season.  We have one more day of second unit to complete Monday, May 9th but for all intents and purposes, heavy lifting has been completed.  Above: Executive Producer and Prodigy Pictures President Jay Firestone tail slates the season.


Commander Gena.


Main unit celebrates wrap with sushi and champagne.


And, of course, whiskey!


Today was suit day on Dark Matter!  Line Producer Norman Denver goes undercover in Miami.


1st AD Brandon Tataryn came in wearing a suit this morning – but costume designer Noreen Landry thought it too ill-fitting and redressed him with a little something from the wardrobe department.  Note the pocket handkerchief.


And the trinity knot.  He’s venturing into my territory.

Anthony Lemke flashbacks to his lawyering days.


Mel x 2!  Melanie Liburd and Melissa O’Neil.

May 5, 2016: Zoie Palmer (Dark Matter’s Android) answers YOUR questions!

Josephmallozzi's Weblog


Yes, it’s true.  Dark Matter’s excruciatingly adorable Android, played by the equally excruciatingly adorable Zoie Palmer, has agreed to drop by and do a little fan Q&A. If you have questions for Zobot, post them in the comments section.  I’ll gather them over the course of the next few days, then relay them via subspace in an encrypted data burst directly to her neural matrix (via The Raza of course).
