Now this is very cool. If my house hadn't been built on a slab foundation, then my jaw would have dropped through the floor.

Great, great, great job.

This was fucking awesome cool. You guys even altered the main theme just like how Sandy Courage's theme was tweeked by the Filmation folks.

Re: Starship Farragut: The Animated Episodes Questions

Well, I finally got a chance to watch it last night. Twice. All I can do is to repeat some of the folks above me and say that it's an absolutely awesome production. It perfectly recreates the style of TAS, the score is excellent and the story is intriguing. My congratulations to everyone who was involved, this is certainly something to be proud of.

Re: Starship Farragut: The Animated Episodes Questions

One wonders, what it would be like if actually did NEW TAS short with the all the TAS characters exactly the same (with updated rendering of course), you would also have to use different voices but maybe you can find people close to shatners (maybe uses Cawley's voice?) and nimoy's voice. Heck, I suppose it could be a Phase II show, come to think about it.

While not using the Phase II folks, here is something that is similar to what you are referring to. Curt is also helping on our project.

Thats great, I had a project outlined in 2005 called Enterprise S5 that would have been an animated 5th season of enterprise, never really got anywhere. I'm not that good at animating, guess I will stick with creating websites among other things. LOL

Re: Starship Farragut: The Animated Episodes Questions

Watched Act I last night with a friend who's not as well-informed on the Farragut-verse as myself. His only complaint was that Captain Carter's voice seemed a bit low and flat compared to the others. Perhaps some audio tweaking (audio levels, reverb, equalization) is in order?

For myself, I did noticed that a paint program had been used, rather than traditional cels, but that's because I'm a Photoshop geek.

All in all, it was an enjoyable trip down memory lane.

Thanks...you are indeed correct...this was done 'digitially' instead of the traditional 'light table'; however, we worked very hard to give it that 'Saturday Morning Cartoon' feel.

As for the audio tweaking, thanks for the advice. The audio in this was done over a year period with recording and re-recording...sometimes whole sentences were restructured from various dialog recorded at various times. We will continue to refine this process and hopefully will improve upon this in the later acts and the next episode.

Thanks for your feeback!

Re: Starship Farragut: The Animated Episodes Questions

Act 1 is stellar -- or should I say LUNAR?!?

It was great. But what a TEASER! We're all set up the episode is picking up pace, Capt. Carter says "Engage!" and now we wait....

Michael, neo f/x and everyone who worked on this: WOW! It really does look like TAS! You nailed it! BIG TIME! Impressive. The characters are well drawn (even RT) and the ship looks great.

So far I'd say the script is intriguing. It feels like a TOS script, but compressed. Instead of The Farragut being dispatched through a live message -- it's just summed up in the Captain's log. That's a great way to compress a full episode into an animated shorter episode.

The voices sound great, guys!



You've identified Thelin as the Navigator on the Farragut. I'd sure like to see him in the next live action episode as neo f/x Michael has suggested.

I'm intrigued. And excited. And waiting for more....
Ken

Re: Starship Farragut: The Animated Episodes Questions

Wow! What a treat! My first exposure to Star Trek was to the animated series as a 7 year-old. I remember wondering what the deal was with the pointy-eared guy named “Mr. Spot”. Anyway, what a remarkable job you folks have done with the animated version of Starship Farragut. The recreation of the Filmation style is spot-on and the story is intriguing. I'm looking forward to seeing how this story ends and getting to know this crew better through these adventures. Cheers!
