The audio commentary for the two opening hours of the TV series DVD release for "The Crow: Stairway to Heaven" couldn't have gone better.
Series lead Mark Dacascos and I sat in an audio room at Hollywood's Crest Digital, wearing headphones, watching the first two episodes back-to-back and talking like old friends watching a past project and remembering how much fun they had together.
I'm glad we weren't over-rehearsed because I think fans will enjoy the spontaneity and discovery we ended up having for our own work (and the work of so many others who worked so hard on the series). I think we both were honestly surprised by some things we saw and the memories came authentically flooding back. We each remembered different things and different people, from fight coordiantors and stunt men to writers and producers.
Something else that helped is that in the last year, Mark and I and our wives have had dinner together three times and really renewed our friendship. Sitting in that room was just as natural, well, except for the championship dining aspect. But we laughed a lot yesterday. So much fun...
The DVD is being released as part of the "TV Guide" brand by Hart Sharp Video. It will be out on July 24, just a few days before the San Diego Comicon which Mark and I will also attend. Thanks to the Crow fans who lobbied Hart Sharp to get Mark and I in that audio room together, and we'll see you in San Diego we hope!
The Crow flew again and it was a good thing. He wasn't dead after all!
