He too is in Berlin I guess now.

No idea what "J." stands for, Lana has never called herself that before..

Locations: Berlin, Brussels, Paris, and Naples (for those unclear how they translate to English). Dunno what that means about London?

edit Article covering the same news: http://www.indiewire.com/2017/09/sen...ns-1201880470/

edit There's some indication that Lana has been a "J." since at least 2012, but she hasn't used it professionally at least before this script..

edit The Italians say London was replaced by Brussels due to "logistical" problems. https://www.facebook.com/Sense8Itali...1245359048483/

Make of that what you will regarding whether they are guessing or they know it for a fact.

Yeah, this kinda sucks. I am not overjoyed at the idea of the conclusion having none of Joe's writing. Equally, I am intrigued to see if I note any tonal differences in the writing for the finale.

Another part of this interview already noted in the Season 2 interviews thread.

https://www.newyorker.com/culture/pe...ing-for-sense8

Quote:
We cleared the metal boards and put up new cards featuring the characters of “Sense8.” Working twelve to fourteen hours a day, six days a week, we turned out pages full of ideas that would vanish into the Pit only to emerge reformed. Within a week, we had the plot outlined; within three, we had a hundred-and-sixty-page writers’ cut of the script, which we celebrated by going out to dance all night. We spent the following week cutting the script down to some hundred and thirty pages that could go out to the producers, the assistant director, and the location scouts, all of whom were eager to start preparing the shoot, the dates for which were quickly set. The production team’s reactions and suggestions resulted in another, shorter draft—the reading version—which went out to actors. The final version of the script would be created in preparation for and during the shoot, and shaped by all the people involved in production. In this way, the script left the small Pit to enter the big Pit, where the words that it’s made of will dissolve into images.

Excellent article by Hemon. The "New Project" they started to develop from unused bits and pieces of Sense8 when it was canceled is very interesting. Considering Lana said she was about to go towards a different direction in her life and abandon directing once the show was canceled - that means the "New Project" was part of that new direction. I wonder what it was that they were developing. A book (by 3 authors?)? Or what? I wonder if it will ever materialize.

edit Wait what...

Quote:
Over a couple of weeks, in the most stimulating creative process that I’d ever been part of, we came up with the structure, time frame, and story lines for the series, and began to write the script for the pilot episode.
It was going to be a new series then? Well, that's not that different then.

edit Extras in Paris required, potentially for Sense8: http://figurants.com/figuration-tele...-a-paris_i5335 (via: https://www.reddit.com/r/Sense8/comm..._filming_will/ )

Ah, I thought FRA is for FRAnce or something, but it's for FRAnkfurt Airport

Meanwhile Kohli posted this image: https://www.instagram.com/p/BZjq_GXHv8w/



which at minimum indicates he will film for the special, and at maximum that he might be involved in all 4 cities? We'll see..

Also Bilello (Lila) getting to Berlin...

We can date this part:

Quote:
Within a week, we had the plot outlined; within three, we had a hundred-and-sixty-page writers’ cut of the script, which we celebrated by going out to dance all night.
Per this post of mine: http://jmsnews.com/forums/showpost.p...&postcount=126 that was July 29 (Hemon made the tweet after 00:00, so the date had changed to July 30 - after all the spent the night together).

If brainstorming started 4 weeks before that (I am not sure if he means they spent 1 + 3 weeks, or just 3 weeks to write, but let's say it's the former), that would make the starting date early July, eg July 3 (Monday). Which would put it mere days after Lana's letter on June 29, Thursday.

Making a little reference to the series Sense8, what do you think about being canceled suddenly and a porn producer wants to make a new season?

- I did not know, and I do not think that happens, what I do know is that we are going to have a two hour special, and that I think will be the end of the story.

This confirms that the wanted extras in France are for Sense8 and also has a few different descriptions I think?

(Translation: )

Quote:
Description:

For a shooting in Paris of an episode of an American series, we look for men of European type (white skin):

- a man from 30-40 years, 1m84, short hair light brown, blue eyes, waistcoat 50/52,

- a man 30-40 years, 1m80, short hair blond dark, blue eyes waist, jacket 50,

- A man 55-65 years, 1m83, short gray hair and short gray beard, blue eyes - waistcoat size 50,

- A man 45-60years old, 1m88, not too short chestnut hair, short beard, waistcoat size 48-50,

Men of diverse origins:

- Hispanic man 30-40 years, 1m75, slightly dull skin, short brown hair, brown eyes, waistcoat size 50,

- Hispanic man 30-40 years, 1m70, dark brown short hair, waistcoat size 48/50,

- An Indian man 30-50 years, 1m75, long black hair, black eyes, waistcoat 48/50, (if you are very dull skin but originating elsewhere, you can apply!),

- An Indian man 20-45 years, 1m70, black short hair, black eyes, waistcoat size 48, (if you are very skinny but originally from elsewhere, you can apply!),

- A black man 25-35 years, 1m85, shaved head, black eyes, athletic physique, waistcoat 52.

For practical reasons, this announcement is only intended for people living in Paris or near the suburbs

2017. 9:42AM. Berlin. Germany. For many, many years I've been convinced my football team was cursed. This year, I decided to seek help lifting it. I've seen healers, shamans and various people of differing spiritual ideologies... a very wise shaman last week told me I needed to watch the game from a place of unity and peace, somewhere that had transitioned from a place of hopelessness - INTO hope... so I found my way to the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin.. miles from home i watched from here, as Tigerland transformed itself from a place without hope - into the 2017 Premiers back in my hometown of Melbourne Australia... @richmond_fc #4 #gotiges #37years #cursereversed #brandonellisburggate

That means she had already left Berlin earlier within the week I guess. Maybe that's why she went earlier than some others to Berlin, because she knew she was going to be missing for a few days later.

Agyeman on her way to Berlin: https://www.instagram.com/p/BZsnAvMhBdN/

Quote:


"We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us." On my way fam!! @sense8 @netflix #Sense8Special #Berlin #celebrategoodtimes #bothforme ��������
Silvestre posted another picture of the script on Instagram stories:



At the end of page 1 you can make out a few words, most importantly "Wolfgang goes to her". I bet it's a dream/vision/visiting sequence and he goes to either Kala or Angel.

Silvestre also posted a bunch of videos in which he talks about Lana and Sense8 but they are all in Spanish.

However I found a description, again in Spanish but I can google translate it, here:
https://www.instagram.com/p/BZs3a5wFFfA/
https://www.instagram.com/p/BZs630mFSBX/

Looks like the scripts delivered to the actors are only 90% complete - they are missing the ending, so right now no one knows how the special, and potentially the series, ends. Looks like today they will have their table read (I guess that's why Agyeman travels to Berlin, but what about Bae that went to Paris, will she miss it?) and next to each of them will be a closed envelope with the final pages, so that they all discover how it ends together!

edit Translation (apparently): https://twitter.com/sense8dailys/sta...30389300678657

Quote:
"Gmorning, i'm with my coffee and reading the scenes of the 90% from the sense8 special eps. We are going to read it together"

'Every actor has a place in the table & we're going to read our lines, and then there's a envelope where is the final part of the eps (10%)'

only Lana knows & if you open the ✉ before she's gonna cut your hand (��). I think it's will be special bc we r going 2 read at the same time
edit Onwumere's script: https://www.instagram.com/p/BZtJygEFA5l/

edit Assembly for the table read happens as we speak!



(from Ibarra's stories)

Notice there's a seat reserved for Middleton, so I guess today she will get/has already got to Berlin!

The newest "Read Thru Draft" version of the script dated today (10/1/17) is titled:

SENSE8 SPECIAL II
"Amor Vincit Omnia"


which translates to "Love conquers all": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amor_V...ia_(Caravaggio)

Apt title (if it ends up being the final) for potential series end!

(BTW: Caravaggio's painting is in Berlin.)

edit Son posted this video of Smith and Onwumere eating haha: https://www.instagram.com/p/BZtLwbKjN5U/

edit Ibarra shows us the "DO NOT OPEN" folder: https://www.instagram.com/p/BZtMlaTFBP5/ which contains the ending....

I wonder if the ending is just going to be Nomanita's wedding or something more..

Louis Vuitton show is on Tuesday. https://fhcm.paris/en/paris-fashion-...=calendar-week

Crazy she went to Berlin then Korea and back in a week! I'm guessing she went early to fight rehearsals since none of the other 7 do martial arts.

That's good to know scienceofsin! Too bad it looks like she will miss the table read (and potentially a few days of filming, but not necessarily so if they shoot scenes she doesn't have to be in).

Something I just noticed is that Lana's name on today's script reverts to its regular J-less version. As such I doubt she's going to be credited as Lana J. Wachowski when the episode gets released, although I can't really explain why she used her full name in that draft either.

Finally, there have been no more social media updates since the posts of the scripts. Either the table read started and is still going on and everyone is busy with it, or it hasn't started yet, they left the room and are doing other stuff for now?

Because I doubt we aren't going to see pictures with all of them assembled in the room + Lana + other crew!!

edit Um..... Doona Bae literally just now posted this in her stories:



She's back in Berlin? LOL.

edit Clayton is streaming live!

edit Saw Lana, Alegretti, and a few of the cast members that we already knew were there. Clayton said the table read had finished. She had everyone sign her script.

She accidentally almost revealed who The Chairman is. Let me know if you can make out the actor's name:



Since the release of the second season there is a fan theory that Professor Kolovi, played by John Judd, was the Chairman. To me it doesn't look like it says "John Judd", the first name looks longer than just 4 letters.. It looks like **PHER or something..

edit Desai posted a video: https://www.instagram.com/p/BZts_L9AeJt/

Quote:
#Sneakpeek of the table read today. #sense8 #finale
I can see Lana, Mitchell, Hemon, Winslow, Toll and others from the crew, along with many others.

In Clayton's live we that "The Chairman" was sitting next to "Bug" at the table. And in this video we see Bug, played by Sommers, sitting next to a woman and some guy, unfortunately we can't see her face at all, and we can only see him from a distance. Logically, one of them is The Chairman!!
