For the uninitiated, Mark also plays online with us here at GateWorld Forum. :)

Yes, good ol' vfxsoup. He's the new Joe. :D

He's done a great job with the special effects in Atlantis, some a better than the SG1 effects. I can't wait to see 'The Eye' which airs very soon. :)

That bit about the season 10 T-shirts is the best quote ever! :D

Nice interview! I've been very impressed with the effects on Atlantis and it's great to hear from the behind-the-scenes people that are working so hard on the show.

Looking forward to the DVD commentaries on ALL the episodes to get more details. I love finding out about all the effects that I didn't even realize were effects! Very cool. Hope to hear more from Mr. Breakspear on those.

And LOL on the T-shirt idea! If Sg-1 goes to 10 seasons (I can't even imagine) they HAVE to market those! :D
