Star Trek: Excalibur begins production on 1st webisode
 
This past weekend (June 8th-10th) Star Trek Excalibur began shooting its series opening webisode.
All the shots planned for this first weekend were completed on June 9th, one day early.
Congratulations to the Cast & Crew!
One more day of filming is scheduled for early July to complete this webisode short
(If any one plans to be in the Las Vegas area and would like to be an extra 12-18 extras are needed for that last day)
Behind the scenes pictures are being posted on their Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Star-Trek-Excalibur

Ta.

I enjoyed the teaser trailer although that seems to be about 10 months old.

I look forward to the webisode though.

The first film shoot went well, we finished everything scheduled for two days in just one, second (and final) day of shooting is tentatively scheduled for July first (we are in need of about a 12-14 extras)
Posted a Picture from the shoot in another thread a short time ago.

Their Kickstarter attempt to raise funds seems to have been unsuccesful, but their website announces their first episode will be broadcast on September 8th of this year. Does anyone know any more details?

They announced on Sept. 7 that they would not make this deadline and would announce their new release date when they were ready. See http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/210.html (E)

Their Facebook page no longer exists. At least not from the link they provide in the original post of this thread.

The page is linked from their web-site...

They mention being delayed due to real life intrusions. Too bad, was looking forward to seeing this...

Maybe they just need a good spelling grammar editor for that banner and haven't been able to find one?

Hey, this came out of nowhere, but after a few months with no other new ST fan prods, it made back-from-vacation doldrums go away...

So a few comments:
1) ''directed by Samuel T. Cogley'' ? :wtf: what, was Alan Smithee too busy?

2)This vignette might have been a great opportunity to showcase the new captain and show the kind of leading man he's going to be. Apart from borrowing a bit from Wrath of Khan (Kirk's old-time glasses, Nelson's old-fashioned book), the film doesn't give us much information apart from liking old novels and nursery rhimes, and being a soft-spoken sort.

That could be ok, but not exactly what screams ''leader''. A little more thought on what will make Nelson a captivating character in future installments seems a priority.

I look at James Sikking as Captain Styles from Star Trek 3. He had perhaps less than 3 minutes of screentime and gave us a memorable super dick...

3) Not a fan of the synthesized main theme... the music during the short was a lot better, though...

4) I like the FX, it's obvious you're going for the same feel as Space: Above and Beyond and Battlestar Galactica.

Looking forward to more...
