Jakoś nie mogę znieść towarzystwa innych. Coraz bardziej się wkurzam. Nic mi nie robią, ale im więcej gadają, patrzą na mnie albo po prostu stoją obok, tym bardziej się denerwuję.

Bones - 12x12 The End In The End
Memories shared by the cast while filming the series finale
Story by: Stephen Nathan
Written by: Michael Peterson, Jonathan Collier, Karine Rosenthal
Directed by: David Boreanaz

When I look back on these past twelve seasons, the thing I will remember most is all of you. Our cast and crew has been professional, dedicated, hard-working, but, most importantly, kind. No matter where our lives take us from here, we have shared something very special together. And I am so grateful for that.” - Emily Deschanel

I just love all the people up here. They respect you, they believe in you. They support each other. And it’s such a great environment to be a part of. I was blessed to meet these people. They’ve got me through lots of stuff in my life. […] We went to war when we started this, and we’re gonna come out with the flag high. […] And I love them all.” - David Boreanaz

vimeo

Now here is something special. This is a short film based on Blade Runner, of course. Its directed by Christopher Grant Harvey and stars Sean C. Michael and Russel Savadier. It just recently came out about 4 month go on Vimeo, but I found out about this back in 2013. When they put up a rough edit of the film, which is no longer up. But from what I remember, its not to different from the this version. Except that the effects weren’t complete and they used clips from the movie for parts of the scene that weren’t shot yet. After that I waited to see if this would ever come out and after 4 years, its finally here. And its as amazing as I thought it would be. So check it, see for yourself, and let me know what you thought. And please share this post, I really want people to see this one. Thank you very much and I hope you enjoy.
