Star Trek - Horizon (Enterprise Feature-Length Fan Film)
 
Hey all,

I'm new to the Trekbbs, but I thought I would take the opportunity to let you all know about my fan film: Star Trek Horizon. I have a love affair with the fifth Star Trek series (Enterprise), it literally helped changed my life. This love of the show helped me put in the passion I would need to nearly one-man-band this entire production, which is still ongoing.

As the thread title suggests, Star Trek: Horizon is a feature-length film. Taking place in 2160, the Coalition of Planets is at war with the Romulan Empire. Desperate for a chance to gain the upper hand in the war, the Coalition forms an alliance with T'mar, a Romulan deserter, in the hopes that she can provide valuable intelligence on her former masters.

I don't have official teasers or trailers out yet. However, I've been documenting my progress with video blogs. I just now released the fourth vlog, and there's plenty more planned in the near future! If you all have time, I'd love for your thoughts, comments, and opinions :)

Another filmmaker I know here does video blogs like yours too. I find them quite entertaining and informative! Looking forward to Horizon!

Oh cool! Who is it? I'm a big fan of the style too! Thank you for the kind words, by the way :) Hopefully I can live up to Enterprise!

I have added your planned Fan Film to my list of Star Trek Fan Films being worked on by Filmmakers who have not yet produced any Star Trek Fan Films. http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/210.html . You are currently (H). When you release a film (or several films) over 10 minutes in length that tells a whole story (it can have some threads that carry on to another episode, but it has to be a whole story, not the first of several parts) you will be given a page dedicated to your Star Trek Fan Film work. See, for example, Star Trek: Phase II http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/20.html and Star Trek: The Romulan Wars: http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/10.html .

I look forward to watching your film and publicizing its release!

Your accent is North American, but I would also like to add your planned production to the Star Trek Fan Filmmaker's map, vis; http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/4.html . For that purpose, I would appreciate a location, e.g., Boston, Mass., or San Antonio, Texas. Your Trek BBS profile says Michigan.

This looks terrific. The green-screen/CGI shots of the bridge in the video blog were incredibly impressive. It looks like you're being very deliberate, but also working quickly, which is an amazing combination.

Look forward to hearing and seeing more about this.

Just added you to both Facebook groups. There are a lot of actual film makers who will help you and share information.

Thank you! The film will be a standalone feature, approximately two hours long. The production is based in Jackson, Michigan. Please let me know if there's any other information I can provide for you :)

Thank you so much! I really appreciate the kind words. Now, if only it seemed I was moving quickly to ME! :P

Very promising project Tommy! I'm impressed with the way you've gone about this: script first, casting second, everything else built around that. I'll be following your progress with great interest.

Thanks, Mike! I appreciate that a lot. After doing a lot of films, I've come to realize that that is definitely the best approach. There's really no other way to do it if you want to make a quality project.
