    *Cross posting from the SaGC thread*

    From the AT chat today - for those of you who couldn't make it:

    Regarding Sanctuary: Amanda loves the concept, loves the character. Helen is very eccentric. She has lived a long time, seen alot, and has an incredible perspective on life. Amanda said it's nice to have a different look, a different walk and a different voice after 10 years of doing Sam.

    On being an EP: She's onset all the time, involved in decision making from how to shoot, casting, editing, etc. She says she's learned alot.

    On directing an episode - it's possible if the show is a hit


    When asked if given one day to live over and over with no consequences ala WoO, what would she choose to relive - she said her first day of high school, the day after Olivia was born and the rest would be censored - adding what doesn't kill us makes us stronger.

    Oh and when asked about her favorite thing about Olivia she said "her sense of humor". She talks nonstop and is very articulate. Regarding the new puppy and Olivia - he's a big dopey boy and Olivia's bossy. The get along fine.

    Hopefully the transcript will be up on the site soon.

    I've checked out a book about Jack the Ripper from the library and am intrigued about the whole multimedia concept about this show. They weren't kidding, considering a show that will air on the internet is dragging me away from my computer to read a book....

    In memory of Deejay.
    May we all be so well loved.

    Little angel Olivia is another alpha in training - another leader! Hehe.


    Soooo,

    What kind of perspective would extreme longevity or virtual immortality give you?

    You save all your old clothes.

    Traffic jams, grocery checkouts, waiting for Sanctuary to start – all fuss and nonsense.

    Health maintenance and retinol based face creams take on a radical new level of significance.

    High school thankfully fades to nothingness.

    The projected 5 billion year remaining lifespan of the sun becomes a factor in planning family reunions.


    I do wonder how a persons' perspective would change. Do moments become more important than millenniums? People more than tasks? Do you stop worrying or worry more? Cool to think about...

    Thanks for those links! I love the Blog's Top 10 Reasons Amanda is Cool! They are going to use her sense of humor!!!! That was at the top of my list for things I wanted to see in Amanda's next project.

    Honestly the premise of this series sounds incredible! I can not wait! Spring is taking forever!

    Thanks - I just read the blogspot and watched the teaser on the website as well. Love the music.

    I'm intrigued about the concept of an internet show and *very* excited to see Amanda playing a new character....especially an "eccentric" character. I don't know if this show is going to be up my alley or not but I'll give it a go.

    I don't know how AT is finding the time to do Sanctuary, 2 SG-1 movies and 14 episodes of Atlantis. Guess it's that "never being late" thing.

    lol i dont think she has to be there that often because its alot of greenscreen and Damiens has been working on this for 2 years. Putting together the "set" would be the msot time consuming part IMO and so AT could probley do this on weekends or in the Hiatus which is around now i believe so thats how she has found time, cramming this in to the hiatus.

    To me she comes across as a person who is probably really organized and enjoys staying busy. It's a matter of multi-tasking and keeping on top of things. My husband is great at it, but me -- not so good.

    I would imagine that playing Sam Carter over the past ten years has become rather mindnumbing in that she gets up at 4am and goes to work without thinking just like millions of other people. You are so used to doing the job that you often do it without really even thinking.

    However, Amanda appears to be really excited about this new Sanctuary project and her role as EP. She's probably enjoying being a part of back side of the creative process and probably thinks of it all as a learning process. And as a female in the entertainment business it's probably a very wise move on her part.

    I don't think she actually starts shooting any of the Stargate movies or Atlantis until April, so she's probably filing her time now doing what she can for Sanctuary, helping with editting and promoting the new series, but I'm sure she's probably enjoying every moment of it.

    I hope she is an intregal part of the Sanctuary team, heck im trying to be as involved as possible, so maybe ill get to work with her. It would be amazing to do so and i agree that she does seem to be able to be a workaholic and have alot of fun, but thats because the stargate working enviroment has to be one of the best ive ever seen, everyone seems happy and playful, thats exteamely rare in the entertainment business. Im sure she will thrive in this project because 10 years is along time to keep sam carter perky and fresh, a change of scenery and project is probley something she is really enjoying, which is great for a new and innovative series like this.

    It's amazing how much more productive and organized you can be when you're excited about a project. Sometimes it even makes up for lack of sleep.

    I'm really looking forward to this show. Helen Magnus sounds like an interesting character and AT looks great in the preview pictures. I'm even starting to get used to those shots with her with dark hair. Do we know anything about computer requirements that will be needed to view it? If the preview works for you will the show?

    This is from the FAQ's on the SanctuaryforAll site:


    What do I need to play Sanctuary?

    - A computer that can display a minimum resolution of 1024 x 768

    - The ability to support Flash 8.0
