Re: Starship Farragut: The Animated Episodes Questions

All,

Today we are going to do something different. While there is no update from me personally on the animated episodes, we do have another 'animated' special for you. Technically, it could be considered another episode of Farragut.

Kail Tescar, associate producer of the animated episodes, has taken some of the 'cels' that he has created and produced a full length comic book of Starship Farragut. Entitled "Dearly Departed", it finally explains WHY Prescott decided to leave the Farragut (for those that follow Farragut and were wondering ). I won't give anything away, but I am rather impressed with this story and its resolution.

It is still considered 'beta' at this point. There are some 'Easter eggs' in it that you are free to discuss here....see if you can find them all!

http://www.startrekanimated.com/tas_comic09_main.html

Enjoy, and congratulations to Kail and Farragut....

Re: Starship Farragut: The Animated Episodes Questions

Continuing in the Filmation vein, here are some more blog posts about/by people who worked at Filmation and what their process was like.

Following model sheets.

The bureaucracy gone mad.

Read the comments after the first post...animator Will Finn tells a story about how working at Filmation on He-Man.

Re: Starship Farragut: The Animated Episodes Questions

For those who are keeping track, Act 2 of The Needs of the Many is now available.

This act introduces Chase Masterson's character, and she does a fantastic job (IMO).

Be sure to catch up on Act 1 again as well...there is a lot going on in this episiode.

Re: Starship Farragut: The Animated Episodes Questions

Thanks, I've updated the Farragut page at my Website to reflect the newly available act. When the third and final act is released, the entire episode will get a headline.

Re: Starship Farragut: The Animated Episodes Questions

It was a team effort, but I appreciate the kind words. It is one of those things in life where you really don't know how it will turn out until you actually release it.

Enjoy!

Re: Starship Farragut: The Animated Episodes Questions

For those that have been patiently waiting, I wanted to let everyone know that the FINAL act of the Needs of the Many will be out on May 12th at 8am PST.

This has been a long journey since I first conceived of doing this. I think close to 3 years now...wow...would I have done if I had known it would have taken so long...maybe, because it turned out even better than I originally had hoped.

I was puttting the DVD pieces together today and I couldn't believe I actually pulled together folks like Chris Doohan, Chase Masterson, Tim Russ, and even Lou Scheimer. Just shows that anything is possible should you put your mind to it.

For those that are friends with NEO f/x on Facebook, you will probably get a sneak peek next week

Re: Starship Farragut: The Animated Episodes Questions

For an early review of Act 3, please see this: http://www.fastcopyinc.com/orionpres...f_the_many.htm

It does have a few spoilers, so be careful if you don't want ruin the act for yourself.

A few people have asked if I am upset with the 96% rating and the comment "A for artistry, C- for the story". To them I say NO...I am very happy.

I look at both episodes as a single accomplishment for NEO f/x. That fact that one reviewer liked one episode slightly more than the next is just like the fans. Some may like The Needs of the Many more than Power Source. One is a true original Trek adventure, and the other appeals to the harder core fan. While both stand on their own, I am glad that we could release two episodes that together show a great accomplishment in the fan-film world.

Enjoy!

Re: Starship Farragut: The Animated Episodes Questions

Sorry to hear that a few people thought you might be upset.

I gave it a 96 in the quick review section. Fred Dixon, our fan film reviewer, had some problems with the story and gave it "A for the production values, an A for the voice talent and a C- for the story. Despite the drawbacks of the story, this is another real TAS episode." Both reviews are quite positive.

Sure, both our reviews were more favorable for "Power Play" -- I gave it a 100. Fred gave it A's across the board. But it just goes to show that two fans can have similar opinions on one episode and quite different opinions on another.

Re: Starship Farragut: The Animated Episodes Questions

To be clear...I was happy with the review. And I think you pointed out something that is present in every TV show and movie...some people will like it, some people won't. That is just the nature of the beast. If we had done one episode, we would be locked into one story and style. With a couple episodes we might actually reach a wider audience.

Anyway, I am very pleased with both of these episodes, and am glad fans find one or both appealing for different reasons.
