Hello Everyone! Episode Five is LIVE! Wooooooot!
I love this episode! It's actually the most recent one we filmed and we did so in Brooklyn at this amazing loft in Bushwick. One of the reasons I'm so happy/proud with it is not only because it has some GREAT fight work in it, but we had two very full days of shooting that went pretty smoothly considering there were a minimum of 50 people on set each day (counting cast, guest stars, fighters, extras, and crew). It was our biggest episode yet (we had two, 4-hour fight rehearsals just to prep for it) as well! Things were also tricky because our DP (Nyle Cavazos Garcia) now lives in LA, so it changed how we worked as a team. Plus, he was directing this episode instead of me, so that also tweaked the usual flow. However, I think it did so for the better. It was really lovely to work with the actors and assist the director with things vs. direct the show. I sincerely think that writing and producing is plenty and I plan to step away from directing on the show for the rest of the season and likely the next season as well. I'll still be on set, but my hats go from around four, to two...much better.
Oh, and I also happen to adore this one because we introduce the world of SKYE! You get to meet a lot of new characters that I've known about for over a year and a half (and were cast ages ago). Specifically the characters, Declan Sinclair (played by Hunter Thore) and Hayden Fletcher (played by Philip de la Cal). Plus, I was able to bring in a special guest star, Melissa Silver (no, no relation), who I have worked with before and has an impressive IMDb page.
Now, without further ado...here is Episode 5!
