His name is Ma'k, thanks a lot. You think he's acting, but he's not.

Ten points for the reference. Five more for the Canadian angle.

Haha... we already filmed his scene, and he was great! A true Klingon warrior, if ever there was one.

Qapla!

Easy: from the animated ROCK AND RULE movie by Nelvana (mid-80's wasn't it?). Sung by Iggy Pop IIRC.

Always had a case of giggles when Omar starts singing : ''you're so pretty, you're so pretty... )

My friend Gary Anderson surprised me today with this fantastic picture of Sulu wearing the Yorktown uniform. You can see more of Star Trek inspired work at http://nightwing1975.deviantart.com/...ions-171034084

Won't scenes filmed with modern cameras have much better quality than ones filmed twenty years ago? Or will they also be shot on film?
Good question.

We shot the film using a Canon 1014XLS which at the time was the most cutting edge S8 cameras other than what Beaulieu had in that format. The Canon had a stellar 10-1 zoom and excellent optic quality.

As an experiment, I figured if I maximized the technical quality within the context Super8 and we transferred directly to 3/4" video without touching the S8 reversal positives, we could get what might appear to be low grade 35mm, or at worst average 16mm when viewed on a TV screen.

http://www.super8camera.com/super8filmstock.php

Being TOS was a television format, and that's what we wanted to embellish, we figured it could work. The dailies were outstanding and better than we expected. Although more costly, the other reason I went for S8 was shooting in video didn't have the available color saturation and hue we needed to mimic the vintage 'in living color' tones like many of the TOS episodes were lit. Gaston Biraben understood what I was looking for and did some incredible work making the most of the format.

Today, thanks to innovations with DV its easier to get the old film look and the resonant grain etc...added for effect. So I think mixing old and new should result in something we were looking for as a finished piece. Thankfully the original masters were found so we have something to finish.

P.S. I directed this old beast

Hopefully soon. Stan Woo gave me all of his original super 8mm footage, which I now have in Toronto. A few clips are with the editor right now for the trailer. Just waiting on some Klingon shots, which are being filmed this weekend in San Francisco.

There is still a ton of work to do on the film, and the goal is still to have it done by January 2013. As most of us are working on other film projects while finishing this project, we are taking it all one day at a time.

Re: "Yorktown: A Time to Heal" - Official thread for the Sulu fan film

True John. We certainly have our work cut out for us. What's nice though is we now have the benefit of modern digital technology and the internet.

A little more about the 'degraded' trailer I posted in 2009....One has to remember at that time Swoo hadn't yet found the film masters so I essentially had to use some of what was thought to still exist. I also thought it added a little drama by degrading it a bit which then underlined the fact we hadn't abandoned the project...it sort of abandoned us...until now.

The other thing to note is I do have other film that differs from what Stan has including additional live action shots of George I shot between takes. So we'll have to see how this version turns out rather than add more than we need to the pot.

Meanwhile, just for the fun of it I tossed together a little poster comp since I imagine we'll be needing something soon...
