Well then, this thread needs a reboot and title change to "The Realities and Legalities of Producing and Distributing Fan Films."
I'd never watched many fan films til this weekend, when I've been a bit sick and perusing the nets for star trek, and came across the Phase 2 kickstarter. Watched a few episodes, and gladly contributed -- beautiful production that's worth assisting. Wish I could do more. Thank you to all of the cast and crew for keeping me amused while I was sick (goes for Interpid, Potemkin and Hidden Frontier folk too, since I watched a couple of each of those as well!) and I look forward to seeing more!
