Ryan over at Heroes Wiki recently conducted an interview with Heroes writer, Chuck Kim. Kim wrote the episode ‘.07%’. He also authored numerous Heroes Graphic Novels.

In the interview he talks about the writers strike, his work on the show and also the documentary he wrote, Sword Saint.

Here is a snippet from the interview.

And as you said earlier, it’s not fun knowing a spoiler when it’s just a spoiler. It’s more fun to learn things when they’re properly revealed, especially in tantalizing ways. Like that eleventh bride—that’s a very fun reveal! “And I’m certain she’ll find me.”

Like I said, other than the script, I didn’t know what the art was going to look like or anything. It just blew me away. I love the art and I loved the coloring and the very moody blues they used for when he was in the coffin.
Peter did the coloring, too.

Yes. It was amazing. My hat’s off to him. It turned out better than I could have possibly imagined.

Make sure you check out the interview at Heroes Wiki!

Thanks to Ryan for this.

Theres a new edition out on the Greg Beeman blog about the previous episode and the wrap party…theres some awesome pictures on there as well below is a excerpt from the post made by the writer…

One thing that always gets confusing on HEROES, is when there’s one scene that ends an episode and begins the next. Because we have two directors, two cinematographers, two assistant directors and sometimes two completely different crews this can get confusing. This episode was REALLY confusing. Episode 18, if you remember, ended with Peter entering Suresh’s room to discover Suresh on the ceiling and Sylar behind him. Sylar TK’s him (i.e. “telekinetically throws” him) against the wall starts to cut open his skull and we end. This episode overlaps all that again and then continues on into the fight. We’re always running experiments on how to most efficiently shoot these kinds of scenes. On this one we ran the experiment of having Kevin Bray, last episodes’ director, and Adam standing side by side on the same set, each simultaneously shooting the pieces they needed. Long story short, we won’t run that experiment again. Both guys were great and got along, but they had different ideas about how to stage and shoot the scene and what angles were needed in each episode. Nobody was wrong, but it resulted in double work rather than half work.

As you can tell this is a complex scene. Sendhil was in a harness, hoisted up onto the ceiling. Sylar is thrown back, Peter is pinned to the wall feet off the ground. A special kudos to the VFX crew for the sequence where shards of glass are levitated and then thrown at Peter. The digital glass looked amazing. There were many discussions about this, because this is the kind of sequence that can be unclear. The moment where a big shard of digital glass slams into an invisible guy, who then becomes un-invisible revealing Peter, is a moment that troubled me. Making sure that this moment is both visually exciting and that the story is being clearly told is complicated.
