thatkevinsmith We shipping #sanvers, son! I got to watch @chy_leigh & @florianalima work their magic on @supergirlcw yesterday (i.e., I was “directing” again). The Alex and Maggie storyline has made a serious difference in the lives of some of the fan base, so much so that @glaad nominated #supergirl for Outstanding Drama Series. Credit goes to the honest emotional reality the @supergirlwriters bring to the scripts every week, as well as these two amazing actresses’ abilities to make us believe their characters are falling in love. We spent the day outside in the snow and rain but these radiant ladies kept the set warm and cozy. #KevinSmith #chylerleigh #florianalima #vancouver #supergirlcw #glaadawards

thatkevinsmith I asked them to take me someplace cool to hang out - so they took me to her cousin’s house. Despite my expression in this pic, I’m having an out-of-this-world experience on the second @supergirlcw I’ve gotten to direct. @melissabenoist is pure joy, @christophrwood is pure charm, and being back at #supergirl is pure bliss. #KevinSmith #melissabenoist #chriswood #supergirlseason2 #fortressofsolitude

thatkevinsmith: Making waves on the #imdboat with my @cwtheflash family! I run back to Central City to direct my third episode of #TheFlash in January! I love these people: because of them, I get to make pretend with some of my favorite fictional folks ever created! #KevinSmith #flash #grantgustin#tomcavanagh #jesselmartin #candicepatton#carlosvaldes #keiynanlonsdale #daniellepanabaker#cw

chy_leigh#fbf Last week after my 1st scene with @florianalima on set of episode 217 with @ThatKevinSmith - He gave each of the cast members stickers for doing a good job the last time he graced our cast and crew with his presence. This time, #Upgrade !! I can’t remember the last time I was given silly putty. But I do remember how much I love this stuff. Though, this time I think I’ll keep it in the package ;) Pretty special prize. Folks, that’s just the kind of man Kevin is. Encouraging, heartfelt, inspiring, humorous, genuine… He puts the Awe in Awesome. I hope he’s back for many more during season 3 of @thecwsupergirl - Next time, aiming for a #slinky or a #unicorn 🦄 Which ever he can fit in his pocket 😏#supergirl#alexdanvers #sanvers#memeandchychy #therealthing #epic#kevinsmith

thatkevinsmith: The second episode of Supergirl I got to direct is on! This is what it looks like when I direct Melissa Benoist & Chris Wood. See the look of panic on their faces as they try to decipher my stoner instructions? Of course you don’t - because these two kids are great actors who can work through even dopey direction like “Say it as if you just realized you’re only an atom in the fingernail of a far larger organism.” Mercifully, they mostly just smile, ignore me and make the smarter, more natural choice.

thatkevinsmith: Game Night in #nationalcity! This is the @supergirlcw cast’s pitch for a new @settlersofcatan box cover: insane enthusiasm from @melissabenoist, @christophrwood & @jeremymjordan and electric indifference from @mehcadbrooks! I’m having a blast “directing” #supergirl. These kids and the amazing crew make the long days fly by… Or at least able to leap tall days in a single bound! #KevinSmith #supergirlseason2 #settlersofcatan

thatkevinsmith Aw, Kraptonite! It’s all over! Finished my second episode of @supergirlcw at 11:30 last night with these cosplaying characters. Thank you @davidharewood, @melissabenoist & @chy_leigh - the heart, soul and spine of this wonderful weekly hour on @thecw - as well as the rest of the cast and the entire #vancouver crew! If you can’t tell, I love “directing” the @dccomics shows in the #berlantiverse. Doing so has made me a stronger film-maker while allowing me to play with someone else’s toys and IP. But it also provides nice cover for me in my day job so I can make masturbatory movies like @tuskthemovie & @yogahosers. Some indie filmmakers in the 90’s used to work under a “One for me, One for them” philosophy - the idea being you work with a studio on something they own then jump back into the freedom of no-budget filmmaking afterwards (Soderbergh popularized this approach). Directing #supergirl and @cwtheflash is kinda like a modern-day version of that for me on one level: the three well-received eps I handled that people have seen thus far clearly indicate I know how to direct and can color within the lines when it’s necessary. But my bat-shit crazy Canadian flicks (the #truenorthtrilogy) allow me to color my flicks any way I want, all artsy or stupid - which has resulted in a few baffled or hostile reactions and calls for my DGA card to be confiscated. So in a way, #supergirl has actually saved my fat ass IRL: working with this show lets me be considered “good” at directing for others while I’m so busy trying to be “bad” at directing my own material (though I like to think the flicks are more experimental than “bad”). Just another reason I love shooting shit with the folks in the photo above: by helping them be fake people, they help me be the real me. Never be scared to make what YOU want to see, Kids - but if you’re gonna get goofy with your personal work, it’s a good idea to simultaneously show folks you’re not really an idiot - you’re just trying out new stuff. Fortune favors the bold! #KevinSmith #supergirlseason2 #melissabenoist #davidharewood #chylerleigh

thatkevinsmith MONDAY NIGHT, the 2nd @supergirlcw I was lucky enough to direct airs! I got to fly around on a space ship! And that’s all because of @andrewkreisberg! Kreis Almighty has been like my savior for the last year, gifting me with gigs on both @cwtheflash & #supergirl. In a year when some folks were using @yogahosers to say I’m a bad director, @thecw shows I helmed served as proof I hadn’t lost my mind. Never mind the colorful characters he writes for and makes amazing episodes of TV about every week - #andrewkreisberg is my real hero. #KevinSmith #flash #daxam #daxamite #supergirlseason2 (via @thatkevinsmith on insta)
