Gary Jones: (on the atmosphere in the set of Stargate SG-1 season 9) The atmosphere is a lot of fun down on the set. Stargate SG-1 is a big, well-oiled machine that moves along at lighting speed considering the CGI aspect of the show as well as how many people work on it. I spoke with an actor today who enjoyed his first day on the 'gate in 9 years and he couldn't get over how fast and fun everything was. Peter Deluise, Andy Mikita and Martin Wood are the old pro directors and they seem to be able to edit in their heads as they shoot. This cuts out a lot of unnecessary shots and also gives time to fool around a bit. This relaxes everyone and the job gets done, year after year, episode after episode.
