Production Notes

  • "Looks like Linda and I (or, more appropriately given the slotting) will double-team on #10 and #11, leaving Brad to tackle #12." — Joseph Mallozzi, February 11, 2010
  • "Yesterday, we did a walk-thru of the new, raised set in Stage 5. So far, so cool. ... I begin tackling the freshly-broken story for episode #10." — Joseph Mallozzi, March 5, 2010
  • "We broke my next story last Thursday (I’ve landed the first part of the mid-season two-parter) and planned to work through the weekend, but hit an impasse about halfway through the second act and ended up setting it aside on Saturday. Then, last night, I decided to take advantage of all those leftover Lush products from Akemi’s visit and settled into a nice, relaxing bath – and ended up working through those second act problems. I completed the outline today." — Joseph Mallozzi, March 8, 2010
  • "Back on the office front, ... I try to figure out a sciFIentifically sound idea for my Resurgence outline (thank you, SGU Creative Consultant John Scalzi)." — Joseph Mallozzi, March 12, 2010
  • "Got most of the notes for my Resurgence outline (episode 10) and, while I’m still a little leery about the third act, I’m just going to forge ahead. I feel it might be a little short but Brad was quick to point out that I thought Incursion would be short – and it turned into a two-parter." — Joseph Mallozzi, March 19, 2010
  • "I had a major breakthrough on that tricky opening scene and finally got some work done on episode 10, Resurgence." — Joseph Mallozzi, March 24, 2010
  • "Alas, not much progress to report on the script front. I'm stilled mired in the Teasely morass of episode 10, Resurgence. For once, I'd love to write an episode that doesn't include any of that pesky dialogue. Just pages and pages of action direction, meaningful looks, and people crying. And the occasional explosion." — Joseph Mallozzi, March 29, 2010
  • "I took the opportunity to float my idea for a little character thru-line that I felt needed to pay off following the events of recent episodes. Thankfully all were on board and I'll be able to move forward with the scene as planned. Episode #10, Resurgence. Still early in Act I." — Joseph Mallozzi, April 6, 2010
  • "Excruciatingly slow going on the script front. Still stuck early in Act I, spinning my creative wheels in frustration." — Joseph Mallozzi, April 8, 2010
  • "Well, I'm pleased to report that I've cleared a HUGE hurdle. That early [scene] in Resurgence that had been giving me fits is finally done. I can now move forward, complete Act I and then it's smooooooooooooth sailing. Until the next unforeseen issue." — Joseph Mallozzi, April 13, 2010
  • "So the plan was simple enough: dedicate the day to completing the first act of my script. I'd already hit the twelve page mark and really only envisioned another two or three pages to go before landing on that Dum-Dum-Daaaaah moment that takes us to commercial. Two or three pages. And I had an entire day to write them! How hard could that be? Well... [various interruptions...] I actually start work on the script, revising the already revised dialogue from the previous scenes and am about to break new ground when Andy poked his head into my office and suggests I join them in the writers' room for VFX Supervisor Mark Savela's show-and-tell. ... Tomorrow! Tomorrow, I'll finally finish that first act. Well, that's the plan anyway." — Joseph Mallozzi, April 14, 2010
  • "No work on my script today but I did end up finishing that first act - last night." — Joseph Mallozzi, April 15, 2010
  • "Miffed, I retire to my office where I work on the script, banging out three glorious pages." — Joseph Mallozzi, April 16, 2010
  • "I eventually returned to the office where I tackled the infernally frustrating scene. Once I get pat it, I wrap up Act II and it'll be smoooooooth sailing from there. I would have finished it up sooner but every time I get into a conversation with my fellow writers, I end up having to tweak the scene (or other scenes) in order to track a recent change or development in the ongoing story arcs or character through-lines." — Joseph Mallozzi, April 20, 2010
  • "Some progress to report on the script front. I finished a rough draft of Act III yesterday. It’s a bit…rough. And a tad expensive. So far, I’m averaging about one visual effects shot per page! Call me a pessimist, but I have a feeling that aint gonna fly." — Joseph Mallozzi, April 22, 2010
  • "Slow progress on the script. Hit the 37 page mark of Resurgence (episode #10) and I still feel like I’m running in water." — Joseph Mallozzi, April 23, 2010
  • "I’m pleased to report significant progress on the script front! After countless weeks of frustration, desperation, and sleep deprivation, I’m finally in the stretch run and that oh-so-elusive Fade Out is well within striking distance. I spent the day rewriting what I had (something I do while pacing which, I’m told, makes me look like an actor anxiously running lines before an audition), then forged ahead and finished up Act IV. I pitched out the possibility of shooting a four act script instead of the usual five (“Think of how much time and money we’ll save!”) but others were reluctant to embrace my brilliant suggestion. So I headed back into my office and, after much consideration applied myself and made some inroads – two whole pages! – into that fifth and final act. Granted, I did it by moving my Act IV break up “two whole pages!” but still, it was progress and I was happy (and, I’m sure, you’re all happy for me). Tomorrow, I aim to close the deal and leave the office with a rough first draft I can agonize over tomorrow night. Wish me luck!" — Joseph Mallozzi, April 28, 2010
  • "Alas, no progress on the script front today. In fact, just the opposite. Remi handed in his first draft of episode 9, Visitation, and some of the character developments in that episode impact several scenes in Resurgence – meaning I’m going to have to reconsider my attack on the scenes in question. Also, I suddenly realized that the information I was hoping to keep secret from character X would have been all too obviously to him the second the agreement is made – and that necessitated my going back and re-attacking that scene as well. LOTS going on in a fairly complex story and the challenge has been to clarify without complicating, inform yet entertain, deliver one of the most mind-blowing Visual Effects extravaganzas to date and NOT blow our budget." — Joseph Mallozzi, April 29, 2010
  • "Success! I finally completed a first draft of episode 10, Resurgence. It’s a little rough, granted – but it’ll do. I’ll spend the weekend revising it and deliver it on Monday. Normally, it takes me about an hour to write the fifth act (usually in a white heat, coming off the momentum of the fourth act break), but this script was anything but normal. It never got any easier and I ended up spending the afternoon writing and re-writing those last five pages. But the important thing is that I’m finally done and pleased with most of the results. And as for those aspects of the script I’m still a little iffy about – well, I’m sure I’ll grow to love ‘em." — Joseph Mallozzi, April 30, 2010
  • "As I reported yesterday, I finally have a (rough) first draft of my script, Resurgence, episode #10. (Image) I’m going to go over it a few more times, tighten up the dialogue, and try to strip away some of the visual effects. As it stands, I count thirty-five visual effect shots – which would be fine in the old days of SG-1 when two-thirds of them would end up being simple zat blasts, but in this case, there aint nothing simple about some of these sequences. If ever there was a candidate for an episode to receive to the 3D treatment, Resurgence would be it." — Joseph Mallozzi, May 1, 2010
  • "I was able to put out a first draft of Resurgence late this afternoon. After many agonizing weeks, I finally feel good about it – which is pretty much the kiss of death. I’m expecting plenty of constructive criticism." — Joseph Mallozzi, May 3, 2010
  • "Hey, good news! The early reviews of my first draft are in and I’m pleased to report I haven’t been asked to pack up my office (always a good sign). Received some great early input and look forward to sitting down to the official notes session tomorrow." — Joseph Mallozzi, May 5, 2010
  • "Got my script notes on Resurgence today. Some great input. Sadly, I had to lose the Megatron gag. :(" — Joseph Mallozzi, May 6, 2010
  • Chevron7 writes: "Congrats on the early reviews of your first draft…were you worried?" Answer: "I don’t know if I’d go so far as to call it worry, but I certainly want to do a good job and thereby make everyone else’s life a whole lot easier." — Joseph Mallozzi, May 6, 2010
  • "I feel as though the past couple of weeks have finally caught up with me and I could sleep for a week. Or, at the very least, the weekend. Might as well make the most of it because next week, I’ll be launching into my rewrite of episode #10, Resurgence, AND spending a couple of days in editing working on my producer’s cut of episode #3." — Joseph Mallozzi, May 8, 2010
  • "In the meantime, I shift gears to completing my rewrite of Resurgence." — Joseph Mallozzi, May 12, 2010
  • "Now, I’m finally able to switch gears to that half-finished rewrite of Resurgence. I was aiming for Monday but, after some consideration, I think the script would benefit from a couple of extra (or should I say missing) scenes. ... As mentioned, I’m still working on episode #10, Resurgence, that visual effects extravaganza." — Joseph Mallozzi, May 14, 2010
