Fallen Star - Episode 1 (it's not Star Trek, but it's close)
 
I wasn't sure where to put this. It's not Star Trek, but it's an homage of sorts. Well, it's an homage to Star Trek-styled science fiction... just with a British twist (slightly Red Dwarf).

(No, it's not a live-action version of my Start Wreck comic, but believe me, we did consider it.)

A friend and I created this together, on a budget of almost nothing (we borrowed cameras, equipment and 'actors'). I did all the editing and effects myself.

It's called 'episode 1' but it will likely be the only one we do, simply because it was so time-consuming. Anyway, enjoy:

(It's in ten parts. It's 53:25 long.)

Wow, I love this! It makes me wish my website included non-Trek Films! Great show!

Heck, I inappropriately put it here: http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/244.html

Warning: for whatever reason, Part 2 stops playing for me about halfway through: (2:55)

By the way, Captain Logan does an amazing American accent... I thought he was a fellow Yank until he slipped when he 'got up' from sleep!

I've not yet watched your film, but I wanted to let you know that I will do so this weekend, and that I look forward to it!

Thanks, hope you enjoy it. :)

In the meantime, here's the third and final VFX showreel (don't watch these until you've seen the film):

I didn't catch it when I first watch the film, but in watching this VFX reel when I saw the "Tri-Corder" device you were using. I believe that it is HD disk recorder, for tapeless acquisition of video & audio. Were you shooting on JVC? I use the DR-HD100 with my JVC GY-HD200u.

I can't remember what the two models of camera we used were, as neither of them belong to me -- but you're quite correct, that was an HDD recorder we used for the prop. :)

Just thought I'd mention the fact that I've posted a review of this production. You can find it at SciFiPulse.net at this Web address:

I quite enjoyed this, and did I hear a Wilhelm scream when they were on the station ? ;)

You sure did!

Did you also notice the lightsabers? There's at least three of them...

Really clever effects.

I liked Logan's accent. Also, the Admiral's final orders - "No life, and no civilizations." :)

Good show, old chaps.
