Great! I think I first heard about this a few years ago. Was it ever shown to the public in any form (presumably without FX)? At any rate, I would love to see it completed.

No, the film has not been shown to the public as of yet. We hope to have the film completed in 2012. A teaser trailer (VFX only) is nearly finished, and we will be putting it online in a couple of weeks.

Here are three new shots of the USS Yorktown, as it appears at the beginning of the fan film. This is how the ship looks before it is given a refit.

You've said this will be "short." I have to ask... how short? 5 minutes? 15 minutes?

Re: "Yorktown: A Time to Heal" - Official thread for the Sulu fan film
 
The OP reads 22 minutes...

Yes, with the new FX and credits added, the running time is about 22 minutes long. So it qualifies as a short film.

Would it be possible to put the trailer on Vimeo? I have trouble using Youtube and I would really like to see this.
