Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

Isn't that some form of Japanese porn? (looks for the blech icon)

Today, I'm working on solidifying the production schedule, confirming with Jeff Green at Georgia Southwestern the folks who've volunteered and contributed to Project: Potemkin in addition to the work his students and those from Darton College have done. It's quite a list!

Tonight I'm going to finish the props for "The Lucky One" and reupholster the bridge railing from where it was repaired last week. Van did some wonderful repair work. They're no longer wild (movable), but they'll withstand additional weight when leaning on them.

Just my 2 cents, Every Fed ship I design has a small food processor/replicator on the bridge. It just makes sense.

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

We have a corridor that runs along behind the bridge from the captain's ready room on the starboard side to the docking port that is accessed from the port side. The heads are on the port side off this corridor as well. We opted not to put the food processor out on the bridge set at this time, but can be accessed out the back of the bridge.

just the sovereign and defiant. the intrepid had theirs in the conference room. the galaxy's in the ready room. TMP era ships did not, but the excelsior had a coffee table but only to hide the hydraulics used to shake the sets

so to keep with the era, i think the bridge makes sense without one.

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

Be sure and check out our website. We've just updated it with the news of three guest stars who've been cast in David Eversole's "The Night the Stars Fell from the Sky."

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

I will be sending Jeff the schedule tonight for his approval and review.

In addition to the filming of "The Night" on location, we'll have one evening of shooting on the bridge set. OR if it looks to rain out a day's shoot, we could move to the bridge set for the day. For this, we'll need Stephanie Burke, Doug Harper as well as the Potemkin landing party.

And if that's not enough, we'll be shooting "The Devil in the Details" on July 9th at One Trick Pony here in Albany. I've scheduled the bar, and while we'll be filming in the AM at Radium Park, we'll be hosting food and softdrinks for everyone at the bar. This shoot is one of those that's going to take a couple of hours at most, and everyone will be invited to attend. This episode will focus on Mario Pagan, G. Douglas Harper, Eric Moore, Stephanie Burke and our two guest stars, one of whom is John L. who will be a Klingon Bartender, and another who will play a rather unique visitor to the bar. If scheduling looks to be tight, we'll forego filming at the park that morning.

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

Tommy Scott, who had been editing "The Void," has withdrawn from this project. We expect the raw video to be returned to us shortly. Once back in our hands, I'm going to opt to pursue another editor to handle this episode or may even edit it myself with the assistance of some local folks. I'm aware that this delay has frustrated many of you (especially the cast members), and while I expect to spend Friday and Saturday mornings filming "The Night the Stars Fell from the Sky," I will work diligently on completing "The Void" by the end of June, once the footage is returned. Please accept my apologies for the delay, and rest assured that once the footage is back in my hands, it will be the focus of my entire available time.

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

Just out of curiosity, how much footage is there, what format is it in and how much space (in GB) does it take up? I might be willing to help, if you're interested.

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

It's nine videotapes, about 45-60 mins per tape. I haven't received them back yet, but will let you know. I appreciate the offer of assistance, but I won't know how many gigs until I get back the tapes from Tom.

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

Okay, are these mini DV tapes or something else? I'm really only set up to handle mini DV or pre-captured footage, so assuming you would want to use my assistance, that would obviously be a limiting factor.

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

They're mini-DVs, yes. I tried to get Tom to upload the footage he captured from them, but he says it would take too much time to upload. So we're waiting for the return of the tapes.

Okay. That's a lot of footage, so I'd agree it'd take a long time to upload. How long is the episode itself supposed to be?

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

Okay, one last question. Is this standard definition footage, or high def?
