Re: Star Trek: Axanar

Here is an update.

After meeting With our Director (Christian Gossett), DP (Mario Ortiz, a 3x Emmy Winner) and Gaffer (Dave Berry, who has been DP on Phase II and is very highly regarded as a Gaffer), it was decided that the Phase II bridge, configured as it is, being fully enclosed, was simply not suitable to shoot for our needs.

So, being that I am also a Producer on Phase II, I have helped to accelerate the move of Phase II to a bigger facility. We are working this right now. What is needed is the ability to move around the bridge (15' on all sides) and to fly the front of the bridge, so that you can actually use camera movement with a jib or a dolly. So you can actually get the shots that they got on TOS, or get shots that you expect to be able to get in a modern feature.

So we moved the Sep. Phase II Location portion of our web feature (about 1/2 of the whole feature) till June, and we will get all the other locations, which are being shot in LA, shot between now and then, on the schedule we originally set. It delays the production about 3 months, but allows us to spend a lot of time on making sure this is the quality we expect.

So stay tuned for more updates.
