ITL, your MU's are fabulous! I love how you've done Uhura's uniform, in particular.
Thanks!

Not sure if there'll be Chekov and Bones MU pics - I can't find source pics that are good enough. Ah, well!

That's a shame - it would be a cool challenge to see whether you could make the baby face of Chekov look suitably menacing!

Harkening back to TOS, most people probably don't know that it was actor Sean Kenney who played the wheelchair bound Captain Pike in "The Menagerie". Later, he was to appear in "Arena" as navigator Lt. DePaul. If Pike hadn't suffered any facial damage from the bertol rays, he might have looked like this:

Re: The Photoshop Thread, Part IV

After seeing the movie a second time last night, I started wondering how TOS could be altered to be more acceptable by the (non-Trekkie) people who are going to see this film.

I know that CBS just finished remastering TOS, but I was thinking that maybe they should reremaster them to capitalize on the new movie. I mean most people think of TOS as having low production quality, but the obvious answer is make it so that you can't see the production quality (which takes it out of the equation). Over expose (or under expose) the film, throw in an intentional unintentional reflection, and maybe a lens flare or two (or four, or eight), and you end up with a much grittier, edgier Trek that today's audiences can relate to.

This is what a reremastered Balance of Terror might look like...


See, the problem with the philosophy of the last remastering was the belief that audiences would want clearer image quality. That is completely wrong. Audiences want to have to fight to make out what is happening on screen.

CBS could make a ton of money with these reremastered episodes.

Re: The Photoshop Thread, Part IV

And there is the trick... those are still images, but you wouldn't notice those effects in a moving picture any more than you noticed these effects when you saw the movie.


Audiences today like this.

TOS is from a different era... an era where early TVs and bad reception provided the poor image quality. All that is removed when we watch TOS today, and it has most likely hurt it's perception by non-fans.

Fans, on the other hand, are constantly looking for every little detail and so like the ultra clear images. Therefore reremastering episodes in this way would be an attempt to get a wider audience (outside the fans).

I honestly think this would work. And it can be done at very little cost.
