LIU Atlas - Behind the Scenes - The Crew
There are billions of stars, millions of planets, but there is only one man, Terrance McDoogal. Oh, and he has a crew too.
About this creation
LIU Atlas - Behind the Scenes - The Crew


The Ludgonian Industrial Union is proud to present another behind the scenes look at LIU Atlas. Today, we focus on the fine individuals…er...the somewhat standup guys that help Doog bring LIU Atlas to your television sets.



The Crew

“The crew of LIU Atlas consists of five individuals. They are as follows: (from left to right) Oldie, Timbo, Cam, Hugo, and Mike.”



Oldie - Director

“Oldie, the oldest member of the crew, spent his early years directing low budget films for TV2. The majority of these films did poorly at the box office, and they were often panned by critics. However, Oldie eventually struck box office gold with his hit thriller…”


“…Space Diarrhea. After making a small fortune, Oldie decided to take his talents to television. He hoped to find an easy, stress free show to direct before his retirement. Oldie signed on to direct a small budget, TV documentary known as LIU Atlas. Little did he know, LIU Atlas would be the hardest, most stressful job of his long life.
As Director, Oldie is responsible for keeping the crew on track, selecting locations and hosts, and interacting with the Producers at TV2. When Oldie is not working, he enjoys napping…actually, he does that at work too.”



Mike - Audio / Navigation

“Mike spent his early years working at one of TV2’s recording studios. Mike helped record and edit music for some of the biggest names in the music industry, including Foxy Roxy (shown) and Ghetto Greg. He was expected to quickly move up the ranks in the music industry, but was terminated after allowing…”


“…his lifelong friend, Doog, to record an album entitled ‘Funny Farts’. While Doog’s album outsold most rap albums, the studio was forced to close the studio for six months for environmental reasons.”


“Doog eventually repaid his friend by getting him a job on his new show, LIU Atlas - albeit at a substantially lower wage.
Mike is responsible for capturing and editing the show’s sounds and dialogue. Mike utilizes directional and boom microphones to get the job done.”


“In addition, Mike is also responsible for navigation. It’s his job to find the quickest routes between stars. It should be noted that Mike has no formal training in navigation, and his lack of skill has placed the crew in danger on more than one occasion (See Iaceo or Pirata Nebula)”




Cam - Camera

“Cam is arguably the most accomplished member of the Atlas Crew. Cam has worked on several wildlife documentaries, and has won several awards for his camera work. During these documentaries, he never missed a shot, even in the face of danger. This bravery, combined with his off-world experience, made him the perfect choice for LIU Atlas. Because of Cam, every disaster on LIU Atlas has been captured on film.”


“In addition to operating the shoulder mounted camera, Cam is also responsible for maintaining and operating LIU Atlas’s fleet of automatic cameras, including the Hover Camera and Space Camera (shown). The Hover Camera captures footage when Cam is unable, or unwilling, to follow Doog. The Space Camera is responsible for capturing footage in space, like the opening planetary shots at the start of each episode.”



Timbo - Editor

“Timbo is the most educated member of the Atlas Crew. He spent his early years working for the LIU’s Propaganda Ministry, where he edited news stories to show the LIU in a better light. Because TV2’s new show, LIU Atlas, had the distinct possibility of ruining the LIU’s squeaky clean image, the higher members of LIU Society hand picked Timbo as editor.”


“Timbo was tasked with editing the show’s footage to fall in line with the LIU’s projected image - a task which he failed miserably. Although a failure, Timbo’s status as working for ‘the man’, put him at odds with Doog, who believed in free media. To avoid conflict, Doog and Timbo came to an agreement where Timbo was not allowed to talk during shooting. In return, Doog promised not to interfere with the editing process.”



Hugo - Pilot

“Hugo spent his early life as a fighter pilot for the LIU. After a few conflicts in which he nearly died, Hugo became shell-shocked and started ejecting from his fighter at the onset of any battle - one time ejecting before his ship even left the carrier. After seeing a psychiatrist, Hugo was dishonorably discharged.”

Doctor : ‘We are going to look at some cards, and I want you to tell me what you see. Alright, what do you see here?’
Hugo: ‘A black dot?’
Doctor: ‘Hmmm, a clear case of shell shock…’


“Although Hugo would never fly a military craft again, he still was able to procure a commercial license. Hugo was selected to pilot the crew’s spaceship, the Magellan. On occasion, Hugo has flashbacks and ejects the Magellan’s cockpit, but he has come a long way. Hugo is also responsible for repairing and maintaining the Magellan.
Hugo is often left behind during shooting to watch over the ship, and he has not formed the same friendships that the rest of the crew enjoys.”

Note: The following footage was altered by Timbo and may not be entirely accurate.

Did Timbo talk during filming? It's just that they all have Doog's nicknames instead of their real ones.
