GABIT Events’ Last Convention Postponed to September

Due to the current situation with COVID-19, GABIT Events has had to postpone their convention Inspirations from April 2020 to 2021 to 2022. Now it has to be postponed again, since the TV show Amanda’s working on, presumably Motherland: Fort Salem, had some schedule changes and Amanda will still be producing the show in April. The new date is September 2-4, 2022. GateCon’s Stargate convention will be happening on the same weekend.
GABIT Events announced that Inspirations: 2022 will be their last convention. Previously, they had organized ten conventions with Amanda as only guest and they had planned to change that format to conventions with Amanda and one more guest. Suanne Braun will be the second guest for Inspirations.

Stargate Actors Reunite to Read A.I.-written Stargate Script – Updated

Amanda Tapping will be in a table read with Michael Shanks, David Hewlett and Jewel Staite this November. The Stargate actors will read a Stargate script that’s been written by Artificial Intelligence.

The idea of a Stargate script written by an A.I. and using that to bring a few Stargate actors together dates back to June, as you can see in this tweet by Stargate co-creator Brad Wright

Last month, there was a first experiment with a short A.I.-generated script for Rodney McKay, which was then read by the actor David Hewlett. Now it’s a longer script in which we’ll get to enjoy the A.I.’s version of Samantha Carter, Daniel Jackson, Rodney McKay and Jennifer Keller. Check the trailer.

Looks like a lot of fun!

To watch the video you need a subscription to The Companion. It will premiere on November 6th, 2021 at 2:00 pm PT / 9:00 pm GMT.

Update: Subscribers of The Companion can now watch the video here.

Amanda Tapping in Face to Face with David

Back in May we announced that Amanda would be a guest in the Canadian talk show Face to Face with David. The episode premiered in June and has since been airing on OutTV, Slice and streaming services like Apple TV, Amazon Prime Video or OUTtvGo. For everyone who can’t watch it there, David Oulton was so kind to publish the full interview on youtube! Enjoy!

Amanda Tapping Is Executive Producing a New Sci-Fi Series

When asked about upcoming projects during her interview at The Companion in May, Amanda Tapping talked about the movie Home(less) and an unnamed sci-fi series. “I’m shooting a trailer for a sci-fi series on a volume stage […] which I’ve never shot in before so it’s a relatively new technology and we got up one here in Vancouver so we’re gonna be shooting a trailer for a sci-fi series on that.”

It seems that she was talking about Synthesis: Season Zero. Synthesis: Season Zero is an optimistic sci-fi drama about a non-profit organization in space. The crew members are descendants of people who centuries ago fled Earth and its crises. Their aim is to unite different worlds in the Galaxy yet they must first unite as a group themselves.

The proof of concept trailer was shot at the beginning of July. Amanda was shooting a couple of episodes of a new Netflix series in Atlanta at that time, so it looks like she wasn’t able to direct after all, due to schedule conflicts. It was instead British/Canadian writer, director, and producer Jem Garrard who directed it. Amanda’s however named as executive producer of the series so we still can hope for some behind the scenes content.
