Blood & Chrome Could Be Presented In 3-D & More

There will be a lot more blood and guts in the new "Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome," but it might be a lot more real than you could imagine.

Lili Bordan, who plays Graystone Industries employee Dr. Becca Kelly, said there was talk that the new series will take the "Avatar" route even further, and be presented three-dimensionally.

"They were using three cameras, and I'm not sure ... I should know if it was 3-D," Bordan said. "There were talks of it being in 3-D."

Bordan shared that bit of news during a "Battlestar Galactica" panel at San Diego Comic-Con that included actor Richard Hatch, director Michael Nankin and science advisor Kevin Grazier. Bordan was the lone representative from "Blood & Chrome," as pilot writer Michael Taylor had to miss Comic-Con because of surgery.

Bordan may have misunderstood the question, however. She was asked by Hatch about what kind of camera work they were doing, apparently to find out if producers were taking more of a handheld camera route like they did for "Battlestar Galactica," or the more traditional multi-camera approach of its failed spinoff series, "Caprica."

But a 3-D "Blood & Chrome"? The pilot is not expected to be completed until at least October, especially since the sets were extremely minimal, Bordan said. Hatch told the crowd that Syfy plans to air "Blood & Chrome" as a movie event first, and a backdoor pilot, similar to what was done with "Caprica." It looks like the network is not spending the money to do a miniseries, like it did with "Battlestar Galactica."

Bordan said she first got wind of "Blood & Chrome" more than a year before when she bumped into Taylor at a party. She was apparently sitting alone, and Taylor sat down with her, and later started sharing some details of what "Blood & Chrome" was being developed as.

Bordan expressed an interest in playing Becca Kelly, but Taylor said she looked too young. She then demonstrated her accent ability, including ones developed from her Hungarian background, and Taylor convinced her to send in a tape.

Bordan has an extensive film and television resume, both domestically and overseas. It includes shows such as "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," "Painkiller Jane" and the 2007 series "Robin Hood."

Although Bordan is working on other projects outside of "Blood & Chrome" while Syfy tries to figure out its fate, she said that she really wants to focus on this new show.

"I always say that I only want to act if there is a story worth telling," Bordan said. "I don't want to do a horror story .I don't believe the worlds needs that.

"I believe that science-fiction is a great pill for raising questions to some important issues, so finishing the pilot, did I really tout my dream story? Is that it? I hope not. I feel like I have a lot more to tell, but it is certainly a dream come true."

OH NO! 3D craze... 3D buzz over plot I hope it's not B&C fate. And what does it matter? I don't, and won't ever, have a 3D TV.

Hey dave! You scooped me... and I was THERE!! :lol: :P

One thing; when she mentioned the 3D prospect, it was spontaneously met by a chorus of 'boos' from the audience... ;)
I also got to take exclusive pics of her (and Dr Grazier and the entire panel) which I will share here next week (I only have a day of internet access here at the hotel, so I'm using part of it to relate this).

For more 'first hand' stuff (pictures coming soon), check out my new thread in the conventions/get-togethers section.
Great reporting too, dave! :thumbsup:

I don't think she knows how 3D works.

I can't say that I'm very interested in the 3D aspect of any show or movie. Not my thing. I saw one movie in 3D and that was enough for me.

I don't think she really understood 3D. She may have confused the 'virtual' sets (which she confirmed were all green screen) with shooting in 3D. At any rate, she was very kind to pose for a picture for me after the panel... :cylonclap:

And again; I promise a full Comic Con report soon. I just got another day or so on this frakking evil flu, and then I'll be able to sit up for more than 10 minutes without barfing my lungs out... :crybaby:
