Update 16 Oct 2013

We’ve asked Lynne a few questions about her adventure and she graciously accepted to answer them, so here you have below our second interview with a celebrity (the first one was of course with Joe) :)

We are very grateful to Lynne for this talk and for sending us several stills from the filming that you’ll find below. She also declared herself open to answering any other fan questions, so you may ask them in the comments here, or better still directly on twitter or Fanomenon facebook page.

 

1.Your documentary aired in Canada on Saturday night, but what about the Stargate fans around the world? When and how are they going to be able to watch it?
We hope to find an international distributor for Fanomenon, but it’s not an easy thing to do!  The subject matter, although of interest to Stargate fans, is actually quite niche, so finding a distributor is difficult.  Most distributors only take on films they think they can sell in a fair number of markets, and most only acquire a handful of titles each year.  When you think about some of the amazing documentaries out there, competition is tough!

Having said that, we are looking, and also exploring other distrbution avenues, like Netflix.  It is all quite a complicated process, takes time (you send off the film and wait, and wait, and wait), and I’m doing it by myself.  Hope to have something positive to report in the next month or two.  So stay tuned! 

2. We can actually see Joe in it?

Yes, you can actually see Joe in Fanomenon!  Filmed over two weekends in two different cities (Toronto and Atlanta) our primary interview (about 40 minutes in length) was shot with a full crew, (2 cameras, sound, lighting, producer, director) very relaxed, very candid and I believe he enjoyed himself.  He appears in the film 4 times, and I think his onscreen time, although brief, is heartfelt and genuine.  He definitely comes across as the hero of the story.  I was really pleased that we captured a side of Joe I don’t think has been shown before, at least not in anything I’ve watched.  Most of his on camera interviews have been for press purposes, quickly grabbed in often poorly lit press rooms, hallways, etc and the questions/answers one would expect in that sort of situation. Those are all great interviews but I was looking to dig deeper and I think we accomplished that.  


3. You said you’re a fan of Joe, just like the film heroine: how was it working with him as a director/producer?

I’m actually more a fan of Sheppard, but working with Joe became a fan of his too!  It took a long time to ‘get’ him (I could write a book on how complicated and humorous it was to ‘get Joe’  – the crew joked that should have been the title!) but once we had him, he gave himself wholeheartedly to the project.  Joe took his involvement in the doc very seriously, making changes to his schedule so that we could maximize our time with him, and really going out of his way to make sure we got what we needed.  Most of you have not seen the film but part of it involved military like execution, with only one shot at getting a very key scene, and he played his part perfectly!  He was charming, relaxed, engaging, curious, very funny at times, serious and reflective at others. 

The main interview was done in August 2012 while Joe was in Toronto for FanExpo.  It went so well that I asked him if we could do more with him in Atlanta the following week, and he readily agreed.  While at DragonCon we filmed part of his photo op session, the key scene, and the SG panel on the Saturday, and then did a follow up interview on the Sunday to get his final thoughts on his role in that one pivotal scene.  

One example that illustrates what it was like to work with Joe?  He told me to signal him from the sidelines if we wanted to film our main character, Suzie, asking a question of the panel guests. She was quite content to just watch from her front row seat though so I didn’t have any need to send a signal. (note: we had a crew member line up for 3 hours to get that front row seat – we didn’t ask for favoritism from any of the cons we shot at!).  After the panel, as people were leaving the ballroom, the crew and I were standing off to the side, packing up the camera gear, talking about how it went, how fun the panel was, etc. I had my back turned away from the others, busy putting my stuff away when I heard the crew call my name several times. Impatiently I said ‘hang on a minute, I’m busy!’  Suddenly I felt a tap on my shoulder and when I whipped around to say WHAT? I found Joe standing there. He’d come out from the backstage area to make sure we got what we needed – he was concerned Suzie wanted to ask a question and wasn’t given the chance, that he may have missed my signal.  Just one example of many to illustrate how committed he was to ensuring we got all we needed.


4. Your film witnesses Suzie’s first encounter with her hero. Tell us about your own first encounter with Joe

My first encounter with Joe is actually rather a dull story!  I’d been trying for about 6 months to get an interview with him, and having no luck at all.  I’m in the television business and had been through all the tried and true methods (agent, publicist, people who know people who know him, etc), as well as several back door approaches (including giving another fan a letter to give him at a con in France!)  Nothing was working!!  In April 2012 the crew and I flew to Vancouver to shoot Suzie attending her first convention, the last SGA con in the city the series was shot in.  We were not allowed to shoot inside the convention, so my first meeting with Joe was just like any other fans would be.  I nervously lined up for an autograph, trying to figure out how I was going to tell him in 10 seconds why he should be in my film ;)  Professionally though I knew it was not the time or place to try and talk to him about it, so left Vancouver no further ahead in the quest to ‘get Joe’. We did however shoot lots of other great material for the doc, including a fantastic interview with Martin Wood.

So that was my first experience!  However, as I said, I’m in the business and not used to taking no for an answer so I wasn’t about to give up!!  I had decided months before that I wasn’t going to give up until Joe told me that to my face that he didn’t want to be involved.  

Thankfully, almost a year after I first started trying to ‘get Joe’, a mutual friend stepped up to the plate and opened that last door, telling Joe about me and the film in advance of his FanExpo appearance.   So on the first night I went to the convention centre, stood in Joe’s autograph line (there was only a handful of people around), and when it was my turn went up and said hi, how are you, etc (the usual pleasantries fans manage to utter in the 10 seconds they have with an actor at these things) Then I said I believe so and so told you about me?  Instantly he was asking questions about the doc and working with his agent to set up a time for the interview the next day.  I was acting all calm but inside I was screaming YES, I GOT HIM!!!  FINALLY!!!  


5. What’s your next film going to be about and when can we expect to watch it?

I don’t know that there will be a next film!  I’m a full time network executive for a major broadcaster and have my hands full overseeing a number of shows (including the Canadian version of Big Brother).  Fanomenon took 2.5 years to make from start to finish and although I wasn’t working on it every day, it was still difficult to do.  Directing a film of any kind is really a full time job but I somehow managed to do it while still responsible for a full slate of original productions.  That was my choice though – I’d been given a great opportunity, was sooooo passionate about the material and wouldn’t have given up the chance to make the doc for anything!  You never know though!  I’ve got lots of ideas, and making Fanomenon was just the best experience ever :)  I’d do it again in a heartbeat!

Update 10 dec 2013

Dear friends,

Lynne is working hard trying to make the documentary available outside Canada, so that everybody would enjoy it, but things are not moving as quickly as she had wanted. So, guess what? She decided that, while we wait for the release, we are worth (maybe) a Christmas gift.

Can’t say what it is, it’s supposed to be a surprise, but we are talking about a director who interviewed Joe on camera, so we can pretty much imagine what to wait for, right?

So stay tuned here or on the documentary facebook page  and you’ll definitely love it! It’s going to happen in a few days from now!

Update 23 March 2014

News from Lynne, posted on the facebook page of the documentary, and some actual footage with Joe! Enjoy!

Many have asked to see some of the raw footage not used in the final edit of Fanomenon. It’s taken me forever to get organized, and editing is not high up on my list of skills! However, I think I’ve figured it out and for those that are interested I’ll be posting a series of unedited clips from some of the interviews. First up? Joe Flanigan on how he became an actor.

http://vimeo.com/89843954

Update 27 March 2014

New video uploaded by Lynne, with this background info:

Thanks for all the new Page Likes! As promised, here’s another raw interview clip of Joe Flanigan. I asked Joe if he was aware of the impact something like a tweet has on fans…

*Note – this looks very fuzzy to me so I will re-edit and re-upload as soon as I get a chance*

Raw footage from Joe interview #2

Update 22 May 2014

As promised, Lynne is posting new  fragments of raw footage, organised in short interviews. Here’s the third one and here’s the message from the documentary’s facebook page accompanying its release:

A new Joe Flanigan raw interview clip has been posted on Vimeo. In #3 Joe talks about the magic of making television, the benefits of shooting a series, and how Stargate lives on around the world.

Update 12 July 2014

We’re truly spoiled by Lynne, who recently uploaded two more bits: here (#4) and here. Joe speaks dearly about fans, and also very unassumingly about his work and the impact of the show. And that’s why we love him.

Update 25 August 2015

Lynne announced the doc is available for the US based fans, on Hulu. Enjoy!

Joe Flanigan was interviewed during the Fan Expo Canada 2012, at Toronto, by @ramblingRuss

The actual interview starts at about min. 6:00 in the podcast linked here, and here’s the transcript.

 

Q: Here’s the very busy Joe Flanigan, how is it going?

A: Very good, how’re you doing?

 

Q: You had a really big role in Stargate, as Col Sheppard, how did you enjoy that 5 years experience?

A: I loved it, it was kind of like being a boy.

 

Q: That show had a lot of cast changes. Rainbow Sun Francks wasn’t exactly happy with how he got out. How did you deal with the ever changing cast?

A: Well, it was upsetting that they would get rid of certain cast members, I was bothered, there’s no doubt about it, but I didn’t have control over that. If I had it my way, everybody would have stayed put and grown with the show.

 

Q: What was the biggest challenge of the show? Because there was a practical set built, so you mostly had to interact with CGI monsters for the most part, right?

A: Not everything was CGI, we did a lot of prosthetics. We were dealing often with the actual physical presence of certain people. The green screen is challenging, I think there’s only a handful of actors that worked with the green screen as much as we have.

 

Q: How long did it take you to adjust “I have to picture this in my mind, I have to act this way”?

A: It took me two or three episodes to fully understand the impact of how this stuff was going to work, as well as the style of shooting that was taking place.

 

Q: Would you change the ending of the show? This was one of the few scifi shows that actually had an ending, it didn’t just go off the air.

A: Yes, I would have ended it very differently. But, once again, that was also out of my control.

 

Q: Would you want to go back and do Stargate Atlantis the movie? There’s been talk about an SGA spin off movie

A: Yes, there’s been quite a bit of talk, but so far it hasn’t happened, so we’ll see

 

Q: But would you be open to get to that role and that universe?

A: I’d like to get together with my friends from the show, absolutely.

 

Q: What’s your best memory of filming in Vancouver?

A: Just being with my cast and crew, we all turned into being very good friends. I miss that camaraderie.

 

Q: Where can we find you on the web?

A: I don’t have a website, but I think there are various fan websites that you can go to. The only thing I have is a twitter.

 

Q: When is you next project coming up?

A: I have a couple of movies coming out, one is called Heavy Metal, which was filmed in Brussels and they call it Metal Hurlant, based on the magazine Heavy Metal, and that’s pretty cool. And then there’s an action film called Six Bullets, with me and Jean Claude Van Damme starring. Right now I’m doing a very elaborate video game for Electronic Arts, it’s kind of cool.

 

Q: So you enjoy the voice work? No makeup, no costumes…

A: No, it’s not voice at all, it’s actually… you get fully scanned, your body and your face are fully scanned, it’s you, it’s your full likeness, it’s actually hard to tell the difference between video and a film. So it will be full representations of me, as a pivotal figure in the video game.

 

Q: How soon are we expecting that to come out?

A: Spring of 2013.

 

Q: I’m looking forward to seeing you in the world of video games.

A: I’m looking forward to that too.

Post updated on 13 September

Joe Flanigan is making an appearance at Fan Expo Canada and according to the schedule he is going to attend all four days. On the first day he held a Q&A session and bits shared over twitter by fans are gathered here below. Hopefully more will surface in the following days and we’ll add them as well.

In the panel, Joe spoke about being a prankster, about his hair and why it’s crazy at times, about working with Amanda Tapping, about his reluctance to fight with sticks in SGA and his preference for Sheppard using guns instead.

RT @AndreaKoeln: Joe Flanigan talking a looot about his hair and why it’s crazy at times. lol.

RT @AndreaKoeln: Joe Flanigan: “Everybody loves @amandatapping (…) and I love her to death!!” Awww!!!!

Rainbow Sun Francks crashed his panel, to everyone’s delight, and spiced up the talks.

RT @ConsoleCreature: @RainbowFrancks crashing the #JoeFlanigan panel and the crowd goes wild! @FanExpoCanada via.me/-4d4r5tu

RT @TheFanDoc: Someone asked about shipping and sparky and Rainbow is yelling out ‘what’s a sparky?’ and Joe says that’s not pot Rainbow!

RT @Boston3346: Joe Flanigan: Shippers? When did UPS get involved in our show?

Editor’s notes: “shipping” = fans focusing on relationships between characters, both actual relationships and fantasised by the fans

“sparky” = some fans consider Sheppard and Weir being romantically involved, although not visibly on the screen. This relationship was dubbed sparky by the fans, while they call themselves sparkies.

We are grateful to everyone tweeting and retweeting and we’ll make our best to give credit to the contributors, but since we’ll certainly miss some, we apologise in advance! Credits go to: gracievalenti, The FanDoc, Andrea Koeln, ConsoleCreature, Erica Scribbles and many more!

Update 25 Aug

On the second day, several fans reported Joe was walking with crutches, but apparently the injury is not very serious. ObiWanKen5 was kind enough to share this:

To everyone concerned about JFlan: it looked like he just sprained something rather badly, so he should be good to go if he’s careful :) He was fine yesterday. It had to have happened between the end of his panel last night and today when I saw him at 4pm.

I asked him of he had a good story to go with the crutches + he gave me a sheepish look + said, “I’ll figure one out eventually.” I also said I hoped he healed quickly and he smiled and said, “oh, I will. I always do. It’s my way.” Such a trooper :)

 Update 25 Aug / 2

“Day One recap” by tribute.ca can be found here. Excerpts: Joe’s Q&A.

[...] Then it was back upstairs for Joe Flanigan. Joe, who is best known for his role as Lt. Colonel John Sheppard on Stargate: Atlantis, was welcoming of his fans when he finally took the stage for his Q&A – he stayed to take questions up until the very end of his allotted hour, and was forthcoming and honest about all of his answers. A known prankster, the majority of the questions and answers dealt with his off-screen antics with his former Stargate cast. Recalling a variety of incidents involving pranks gone awry, Joe was crass, open and hilarious as a storyteller, particularly in his account of what happens when you let a cast member crash at your house.

Update 25 August / 3

We’ve just found this picture shared by SPENCERisFRESH

Update 26 Aug

More about Joe walking on crutches – from the JoeFlaniganOnline group (thx Pippin for sounding so reassuring!):

Not really sure, I think it was his knee. He wasn’t on crutches on Thursday night, however was hobbling on them Friday and when he was doing his photo shoot he wasn’t putting all his weight on his left leg.

Also, when he sat down, you could see the pain in his face. I was first in line at his autograph session and felt so sorry for him. He’s a trouper tho, you would never know he was in pain after he sat down.

I asked him about it but he didn’t really give an answer just a shrug and a “oh just a me thing”.

Update 27 Aug

Picture taken and shared by Dennis Ilic (and also a hint of a uber-cool announcement?)

Update 12 Sep

An audio interview was posted here, in a podcast by Rambling Russ. Joe’s interview starts at min 6:00, and he speaks about filming in Vancouver and working against a green screen, plus his latest projects, including the video game he is currently doing (and due for release in Spring 2013): “a very elaborate video game”, “your body and your face are fully scanned, it’s you, it’s your full likeness, it’s actually hard to tell the difference between video and a film”.

TheTVaddict.com published a short interview with Joe Flanigan on the first day of the Fan Expo Canada convention (here details on the convention schedule, and here bits shared by the fans during the actual event). Here’s the whole text copied below:

Gearing Up For Fan Expo Canada with STARGATE ATLANTIS Star Joe Flanigan

By theTVaddict on August 23rd, 2012

By Terri-Lynne Waldron

From 2004 through 2009, Joe Flanigan played Lt. Colonel John Sheppard in the hit SyFy series, STARGATE ATLANTIS. Flanigan makes his debut at Fan Expo Canada this year taking place at the Toronto Metro Convention Centre, and running from August 23 until August 26. The veteran actor dished about strange fan requests, shooting action scenes and working with Jean-Claude Van Damme.

This is your first visit to Fan Expo Canada. What are you most looking forward to?
Joe Flanigan: I always like making contact with the fan base. I feel really lucky to have a following and it gives us a chance to express our gratitude. Also, I always look forward to the endless stream of strange outfits people wear.

God bless SciFi.

What is the strangest thing that somebody has asked you to sign at a convention?
Well, it’s not the disturbingly large posters, or occasional breast, or even the elaborately painted oil portraits of myself. I would say it was someone asking me to autograph a picture of David Hasselhoff with no shirt on. I’m still trying to block that visual.

You ski, surf and play tennis (just to name a few). Were action scenes on STARGATE ATLANTIS easy for you to do?
They were generally easy for me. However, at the beginning of the show the stunt coordinator wanted to make my character some JuJitsu Karate maniac. Working a 14-16 hour day then rehearsing elaborate fight scenes proved difficult. I emphasized that my character was an improviser and basically a gunslinging space cowboy. Give the sticks and Karate moves to other people and just hand me the big gun. I think it worked for the best.

Did you take anything from the set when the show ended?
Yes, The People’s Choice Award statue that was oddly put on the producers shelf and never given to the cast even though it was awarded to the cast. It still sits in my living room next to my action figure.

Would you want to be friends with John Sheppard in real life?
How do I answer that question without being really self-congratulatory?

You are an accomplished actor. What is your favourite type of role to play and why?
I love action and I love playing characters who really aren’t sure they are going to survive. I also really like comedy. Without a doubt, though, John Sheppard was my favourite role. I would love to have played Indiana Jones and I am also hoping to get a crack at the Nathan Drake role for (the action-adventure video game), Uncharted.

There has been much talk about a SGA movie. Are there any updates that you can give us?
No plans on the books yet.

You co-star with Jean-Claude Van Damme in the upcoming DVD release, 6 Bullets. What was it like playing opposite the Muscles from Brussels?
I really enjoyed working with him and doing a more orthodox action movie than I am used to. My role was great and I’m hoping people enjoy it as much as I enjoyed shooting it.
