Episode #74 – “Production Interviews”

April 11th, 2009 | Category: Interviews,Podcast Episodes

 We begin our post-BSG coverage with interviews with some of the talented people involved in the show’s production.  Recorded at the first prop auction in January, we talked to Glenne Campbell (Costume Designer), Ken Hawryliw (Prop Master), and Kevin Grazier (Science Advisor).

We find out some of the design cues that differentiated the wardrobe of the Eight models, what became of the original Colonial Blaster (Sidearm), and the scientific vetting that goes on once the writers submit a story. Thanks to Glenne, Ken, and Kevin for talking with us!

Episode #57 – “BSG Auction Interview”

December 11th, 2008 | Category: Interviews,Podcast Episodes

We talk with Alec Peters from Propworx, who is putting together the massive collection of actual BSG props that are going up for auction next month. The webisodes and Season 5 premiere have official dates, and aren’t far off!

Until then, sci-fi TV pickings are slim. We discuss the dearth of quality sci-fi shows and postulate what is to come in the era of tight television budgets and copycat reality shows.

The BSG Auction will be January 17-18, 2008. Sign up and get details at www.battlestarprops.com
