Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

I think of Exeter like the Sistine Chapel. Don't rush it.

Although it only took a bit over four years for Michelangelo to paint that.

I don't have much of a point. My only observation was that Barb likened the TTI release to another ambitious project--one that wasn't rushed and ultimately had amazing results. Being not too knowledgable on the subject, I personally thought that Michelangelo worked on the ceiling for, well, decades, because of the incredible final result. I was surprised to learn (and I thought others might be interested to know) that he actually knocked it out in about four years. Great results--but not actually as lengthy a process as I had thought it was.

It was just an interesting and surprising bit of trivia. I wouldn't try to read any more into my comment than that. I apologize that my comment might have been tinged with something that wasn't really intended.

I don't want to pressure Jimm. I just want to offer encouragement.

Agreed. What I've seen has been terrific, and I'd enjoy seeing how it all works out.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Won't it be AWESOME to finally see the ending?

I still get tensed up thinking about... we were left on such a cliffhanger. It really is wide open as to what will happen in that final act.

I sure hope it's soon. I could use a really good dose of Trek (and please Barbreader, don't tell me about all the other fan productions I could be watching in the meantime -- unless you know of any that are at the same level of Quality as Exeter-Farragut-PhaseII).

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Frankly, I don't know what the hold-up is. I've seen several cuts of Act 4 over the years and -- with the effects shots (which I think are done, but I could be wrong) -- it could be buttoned up fairly quickly.

Sadly, I can relate to the rumor that Jimm is a perfectionist. (I say "Rumor" because I don't know him)
I've been working on a CG model of the Baton Rouge class for WAY too long and keep redoing parts of it because some tiny little thing that no one will notice is "wrong".
Sometimes it just isn't healthy to be a perfectionist.

However, when a perfectionist puts some type of art on display there's usually praise. That makes it worth it, I suppose.

...but I really want to see Act IV today. Since I can't, I wait.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Well, there's a certain point where you need to just say "good enough" and let it go.

Indeed. How many people would be able to accomplish anything if they didn't follow that philosophy at some point..

I would have never finished my first studio project.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

It's one reason that I've quite enjoyed crash projects like the 48 Hour Film Project, where you are forced to complete something in a ridiculously short time. Deadlines are often more a help than a hindrance.

Ain't that the truth.
