Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

Sorry we haven't updated lately, but with so many things currently in post-production, there's not a lot to report.

Bill Walker has exported the first set of takes from "Doctor's Orders" for Rick Foxx to edit. We've got to figure out a better way of transferring files -- SugarSync is wonderful, but Bill wants to transfer 9GB of footage. I may need to pay for additional GB space on the Potemkin account.

Bill's also working on doing the lightning for the "Miscommunication" VFX sequences:
I haven't done lightning before, so this is new. But the first test I just did looked pretty awesome. Plus, DigiEffects just gave me their Glow plugin for free as a promotion, which will be handy making the lightning appear really bright and realistic. Good timing on that!
"Engineer's New Clothes" was digitized today, but no one's had the chance to do anything with it. We haven't digitized "Miscommunication" yet, but Bill says he should get to that tomorrow along with the stock footage he shot of the bridge viewscreen for use in scenes in "Void" and "Stars."

Tom Scott has a rough cut of the teaser from "The Void," but we're going to shoot a few closeups of Jeff Green as Captain Grigory for the production. Jon Carling has the video footage for the opening credits sequence for "The Void" and is at work on them. Once the opening credits sequence is complete, we'll turn it over to Steve Gallant for scoring.

We're still needing donations to cover the uniform expenses including those expensive Starfleet pins everyone wanted us to have on the front of the uniforms. Donations can be made to our paypal account: Even $10 - $20 would help, especially from 25-30 people.

Lastly, we're planning on shooting "Delivery" as well as the close-ups from "The Void" and a few Captain's Log in March with Jeff Green and Stephanie Burke. "Delivery" will be released before the other vignettes we've filmed already. These first few episodes feature the last of the old uniforms. The new uniforms will be used in the April and May shoots.

Guess that's all for now. Sorry we don't have any new pics or footage, but once we start releasing these episodes and vignettes once a month, we should be able to keep everyone happy.
