-My 2nd day of filming on “Ward’s Island” was a little rough. Part of that was having a call time of 7 AM-which meant leaving by 5 AM after getting back home around 10-11 PM the night before. Today I got to play the role of a soldier-which meant slicking & tying my hair back tight. I even had a hair net on. It took them awhile to find a cap to fit my watermelon head, but they got one. We only did one scene today-broken up into several sections. Basically the soldiers were attacking the werewolves-which are all CGI so for this we were fighting thin air. Most of the time we were charging across a field. I had to hold a riot shield, which started to get heavy after awhile, and a pistol. A fun but hard day. The extras only had to be there for a half day so that was cool. Traffic during the early afternoon of Buffalo was quite congested. I fell asleep during the ride back-and we had to pull into a rest stop for more sleep cause Kirk needed it too….

Post originally from July 14, 2014.... -Late Saturday afternoon I received word that Star Trek: New Voyages/Phase II Director and friend Mark Burchett had passed away. I was in totally shock and even now, as I type this, I'm still feeling that shock. I'd just seen / talked / worked with Mark at the filming of a new version of "Mind Sifter" just under a month ago. He was actually one of the first people I had a long talk with when I arrived at the studio-just playing catch up and such. I first met Mark in 2011 when we were filming "Mind Sifter" and I was immediately impressed by his kindness and patience on and off set. He was always offering to help and giving encouragement to others. I was also at two other shoots with him as director and it was always a great experience to work with him. He will be missed. R.I.P.
