Battlestar Galactica - The Last Days
2008 saw the filming of the highly anticipated finale of the groundbreaking tv series Battlestar Galactica. In the final weeks of the episode "Daybreak" photographer Dennys Ilic was allowed on the closed set to document the final and very poignant moments of the end of this incredible series and the parting of this tight family.
Armed with his DSLR and only a small Canon Ixus for video, Dennys captured thousands of images and many hours of footage. The end result is this video assembled in one evening on his laptop in Deep Cove, North Vancouver for the wrap party at Director Michael Rymers home. The Video is a tribute the wonderful, late Harvey Frand who served as Producer/Supervising Producer for 73 episodes. Without the kindness of Harvey and the warm welcoming nature of all the BSG cast and crew including the incredible Michael and Loretta Rymer and Edward James Olmos, this film would not exist.
In 2009 this video screened at Paramount Pictures main Theatre to an audience of cast, crew and Universal Pictures/NBC Executives for Harvey's Memorial. This was orchestrated by the awesome Bill Bowersock - Thank you Bill for allowing me to show my appreciation of Harvey at such a special time ~ Denny
