thatkevinsmith: Me and my hero. Today is my last day of shooting on the ep of @cwtheflash that I’m “directing.” But let’s be honest: all I’ve done is watch the cast and crew do what they do so well without me, week in and week out. Directing #TheFlash is kind of like my version of baseball fantasy camp: it’s like a dream-come-true of being in charge and essential to the process of something you deeply love but are normally outside of. I was never needed here: I just wanted to be here. And even though all the good folks on the #vancouver set welcome me with open arms, I know which way the favor goes: I’m a lucky fan who tries to stay out of the way while the true on-set brain trust of A.D. Bob Crippen, D.P. Kim Miles and script supervisor Lexy La Roche make the show I adore. Big thanks to the power trio, the entire amazing crew and the incredible cast for making me look good and making me feel like I’m actually a part of one of the best shows on television. I will really miss #CentralCity when I leave tomorrow. But unless I wanna fuck up the timeline with a #Flashpoint kinda incident, I can’t live in the past - I gotta head to the future. And the future holds new flights of fancy to face. Next stop: #NationalCity and the set of @supergirlcw in mid-October! #KevinSmith #GrantGustin #dccomics #thecw

thatkevinsmith The ethereal @dpanabaker akes center stage in the episode of @cwtheflash I directed and man, did she turn in some series-best work! My second run at #TheFlash was more challenging than my first episode: there was very little speedster activity in #therunawaydinosaur but we’ve got a metric fuck ton of running around and fighting this time. In @yogahosers, the girls fought a giant #GoalieGolem that was just a performer on stilts in a costume - but in my ep of #Flash, the hero fights a giant villain that exists only on some talented genius’ computer. And what’s oddly wonderful about shooting #vfx scenes is that the acting required is closest to childhood make-pretend. There were moments when #daniellepanabaker and @grantgust had to pretend to do things I’m relatively sure they can’t do IRL and it was adorable to watch. I don’t normally get to shoot stuff like that on my flicks so it’s fun for me to see the actors strike poses while battling figments of their imaginations and displaying powers and abilities that the vfx team will manifest for them later. It reminds me why all of us do this shit in the first place: at one point in our childhoods, we each decided to keep playing these make-pretend games well into adulthood, long after most sensible people opt instead to act like adults. It may not be the noblest way to make a living but it sure is kinda fun… #KevinSmith #flashseason3 #dccomics #kids #acting

Airlines are not using the network the way they should… Every tweet should be getting a response. @UnitedAirlines is probably the brand that should be most concerned. It drives me insane when someone talks to a brand and they just get ignored. This shouldn’t be acceptable, period. 

Delta looks like they may be doing it better than anyone else… 63.9 tweets per day. 

thatkevinsmith Presenting a new @cwtheflash spinoff - The Wells of 2 Worlds! @cavanaghtom, the nimble genius behind Harrison Wells, and his stunt double Brent get dressed in matching outfits for a night on the town. They’re like a male version of the twin Grady girls from #TheShining. Tom is on FIRE in Season 3 - meaning performance-wise, not literally on fire. Because if Tom was literally on fire, Brent would probably be doing it for him…#KevinSmith #tomcavanagh #theflash #theflashseason3 #starlabs #vancouver#canada #stunts  

thatkevinsmith Last night, we did a table read of the episode of @cwtheflash I’m directing. It was actually less a table read and more of a table-preview-of-greatness-to-come because instead of just spitting out lines, the cast performed the Hell out of the script! It was like standing in the middle of #StarLabs as #teamflash figured out how to bust a bad guy or dump a doppelgänger! Next time I see all these talented folks, we’ll be on the #CentralCity sets bringing @dccomics to life!

Last night on Talking Dead we unanimously decided that you should ALWAYS choose cookies over death. Thanks for being great last night, @thatkevinsmith, @RossMarquand & @AlexandraBreck!! #cooooookieeeeeeee #Scarol (at Talking Dead Wonder Loft)

grantgust: I can’t wait to see next week’s episode. Barry’s journey at the end of this season was a torture and a joy to go on. But this episode in particular was in the best hands possible with @thatkevinsmith. He came in with such exuberance about the project that the entire crew and cast was uplifted. We were near the end of a 23 episode season and run down but Kevin reinvigorated us and I think together we all made a very special episode that tv, comic book, and Flash fans will really enjoy. Like I said, I can’t wait to see it and I am very grateful for the time we all got with Kevin on this one.

I got to go to one of my favorite podcast shows last night - #hollywoodbabbleon feat. @thatkevinsmith and @ralphgarman and I still can’t believe that they pulled out my letter and showed the artwork I made. Here’s a #drawing I did of them! (The episode should be up soon if you want to hear it😉). #fanart #kevinsmith #girlsinanimation #ralphgarman #garmy (at The Trocadero)
