Geek It Happened to Me

Our “Space” Shoot

Last week, my friend Mark Askwith, a producer at Space — the Canadian sci-fi channel — dropped me a line asking if I’d like to talk about a couple of cool gadgets in a segment for HypaSpace, Space’s “geek news” program. It sounded like a fun idea, so I said I’d do it.

Mark and Space camera guy Darcy came over to the TSOT offices last Wednesday to do the shoot, which some of my co-workers starred in. The segment will air during the year-end installment of HypaSpace; I’ll post the broadcast date as soon as I found out when it is.

I took some photos during the shoot — they appear below.

“Music is where I’d like you to touch…” My co-worker Alex demos his iPod Touch as Darcy films.

Alex is a hand model now! Mark watches as Darcy shoots an iPod Touch segment — I’ll do the voice-over.
