Title: B5:TLT update from jms
Author: jmsatb5@aol.com
Date: 3 Oct 2006 00:17:35 -0700
Message-ID: <1159859855.840954.223860@h48g2000cwc.googlegroups .com>

I'm kind of up against it right now on an assortment of deadlines, so
this'll be quick, but I did want to address some of the questions that
have been asked.

Yes, we're shooting this HD, so this is going to be quite a learning
curve for me as a director, since I've never shot HD before. There's
also a HUGE amount of green-screen involved, so again, lots of learning
to be done.

For those who are getting the B5 scripts books -- and eventually the
B5:TLT scripts will be released -- you'll notice a substantial
difference between them and these scripts in that I decided to kind of
direct them on the page more than usual: calling out specific angles
and camera directions, locations and setups more than in any prior B5
script. It probably resembles an animation script more than a standard
TV script, because it incorporates my directorial notes, shot for shot,
as we go.

The first three-segment DVD is called "Voices in the Dark." We've
narrowed down the cast, and hope to have their deals closed this week.
There are already ten crew members working on this thing up in
Vancouver, pulling together stages, offices and other prep work. The
first day of shooting will likely be either November 13th or 14th (due
to a Canadian holiday). The last twiddlings to the script should be
done by this coming Monday. Storyboarding starts the end of this week.

It's balls-to-the-wall right now, but it should be fun in the end.

JMS just isn't happy if he isn't overworked, is he?

I'll simply say one last time: it's too damned bad this happened just a bit too late for some of our favorites to be part of the project.

True. Anything without Richard Biggs and Andreas Katsulas won't seem like the same old B5. Even if they get different actors to play those characters the two of them played, they just won't seem like the same Dr. Franklin and G'Kar.

Which is why JMS has made it abundantly (and repeatedly) clear that this is NOT going to happen as long as he is in charge. Ever. Period. End of story.

Re: Actual B5:TLT News

Certainly he is not going to recast them. But, they could still have small roles... Look at all the dead people who "acted" in Forrest Gump, and that film was made 12 years ago. So, who knows what could happen, given what IS possible? It would be a good way to throw some $ to their estates, i.e. their families.
