Re: "Polaris"

There are tons of logistical concerns with film shoots. Every time I do one I learn something new to add to my knowledge base. Currently we're discussing how we'll do the final location shoot and if/how much camera movement we'll want, and how a moving camera affects editorial. I think filmmaking is one of those things that, if you had any idea how complicated it was before you jumped in, you'd think thrice before you got involved!

Re: "Polaris"

Am busy working on the initial rough assembly of the footage for the show, and, amidst the tedium of syncing second-sound to picture for hundreds of takes, I saved out a couple of frames just to post here.



On the Command Deck of the starship Polaris.






Captain Fredericks and crew react to an audio message from their Transhuman nemesis Andros Gaitanis.

Mess with Lt. Howard and she might "blow your effin' head off".






Mr. Azra pilots the Polaris into adventure and out of danger.

It must be warranted because that was my first thought too.

You'd swear that it looks like an updated version of the C-57D's bridge from Forbidden Planet. Let alone the uniforms from the 1956 MGM science fiction classic.

^^^Well, that is something of the vibe the show is going for. The center console is one part C-57D astrogator and one part Tardis center console.
