Re: Starship Farragut: The Animated Episodes Questions

I appreciate everyone's comments...

We got an article on TrekMovie...you can find it here:http://trekmovie.com/2009/09/01/fanm...date-previews/

In addition, I have updated the main site (Farragut-Animated.com) with an updated version of Act 3. It appears a name was misspelled, so we updated it and posted the new version. I also updated the posting above for the YouTube video, but the latest version is here:

Act 3b: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jbknqEDBm30

Again, if you are at DragonCon, come by and see the full version of Power Source, and also a sneak peek at The Needs of the Many.

That was a good idea - nice to see some things stay mysterious - well done for resisting the urge to explain.

I also liked the constant eye changes and the dialog with the Doctor and the ensign.

Thanks....I liken the end of this episode to Star Trek 4. While we had a big adventure and everything is now fine, we are still left with the question of what the probes (or in our case, globes) were actually for. Could be anything...and it opens the door to a LOT of imagination. As I said, anything you come up with is correct!

Agreed. It's sure nice to have a fan production come out on time and still look professional. Good job, folks.

It's kind of funny that the review mentions the color mismatching on TAS where a sleeve appeared to be a different color than the shirt, of all things.

Just a factoid for those curious why this happens on a lot of cartoons: it usually isn't a coloring error at all, it's that no animation cel is 100% transparent, so that the same color on two different cels looks different because the one further down in the pile is dulled by the cells above it. At studios like Disney they mixed slightly different versions of the same color for different cel layers to minimize this (the deeper in the stack, the more bold the color).

Clearly, this isn't an issue on CG as used in the animated Farragut film.

Re: Starship Farragut: The Animated Episodes Questions

Very nice work! I've been keeping up with your updates and appreciate the background information you share with us. The episode was very cool, and being a huge fan of Filmation, thought it was a nice homage. I read in that review there will be a second episode on the way, looking forward to it!

Re: Starship Farragut: The Animated Episodes Questions

My only real criticisms about "Power Source" are voice acting and script related. I'm forgiving of the acting as it's a fan film and mostly fan's playing actor. As to the script, the idea is intriguing, but it's just too wordy. The four minute briefing room scene and the following "pacing" scene have already been addressed, but what stuck out to me in later sequences was the lack of immediacy. For instance, the crew stand around the corridor of the Azreal discussing what to do next and then beam back, when they should have taken their captives back post haste and discussed next steps in the safety of their own transporter room. The ending scene is also a bit too protracted. I like what was being attempted, as in some mysteries remain mysteries, but it was too protracted a dénouement.

I mention these because they rob the story of dramatic tension. I hope the next episode addresses these issues.

Re: Starship Farragut: The Animated Episodes Questions

Are you saying it looks like me? Actually, good catch....it was originally designed using my face, but another artist tweaked it, so I thought the similarities went away. Guess not...Vic Mignogna is voicing this particular character.
