Ah yes, the newsletter, The Brethren Chronicle. Where, oh where, do we start,well a little bit about us. This is a newsletter for the fans by the fans, but also for the cast and crew as well. We are a bimonthly newsletter that is primarily e-mail based and created in Microsoft Word, with plain text versions available at The First Wave Warehouse. The back issues are up as well as more info on subscribing.

We like to recommend opur e-mail versions, but there is a choice here. If you don't have Microsoft Word, a freeware version can be found at search for Microsoft Word and one of the results will show Microsoft Word 97 32 bit, and that will do the trick.

First Wave is a really wonderful show and has given the fans so much, we do the newsletter to give something back for all the effort they put into the show. The cast and crew are very much involved in the newsletter, as we get great feedback from them as well as exclusive interviews from guys like Henry Chan, Rob LaBelle, Roger Cross to name a few. We have news the latest news on the comic books, and some other hot topics, and there's much more than that. We've got an artist on the staff in Ish, the very opinionated Bruiser, the talented Nei one of the editors, and then there's DrkAngel, who does the layout and design and edits the newsletter. Thanks for your time reading this. If you any questions, want to subscribe or anything send an e-mail over to

Henry Chan is the DP (Director of Photography) of First Wave. Never heard of him? Well, you should have because he's done plenty of work behind the camera. So you're probably asking yourself exactly what does a Director of Photography do anyway? What are their responsibilities and what challenges do they face every single day? Good questions!

As the DP, Henry is responsible for the tone and look of each episode of First Wave. For example, remember the dark lighting in episodes like 'The Box' and 'Night Falls'? Henry was responsible for those dramatic effects. He "creates the look by lighting filters (camera and light) lens" to achieve the desired look thereby "capturing the images on film". Sometimes, after all the shooting has been done for the day, Henry still has certain images in his head. So, he'll "instruct the lab to do a special process on the film negative". The Lab will then create certain density on the negative to give the precise look that Henry wants to achieve. Henry's duties also include "designing the photography to serve the director's plans, as well as answer the story's purpose both in fidelity with the best traditions of the craft and my own artistic convictions." How does he do that? "By learning the director's personality as best as I'm able and establish a common photographic language with each director, and understanding the script and the proposed styles of writing."
