STAR TREK CONTINUES — NEW FAN FILM WEB SERIES

Looks like there's another fan web series in the works based on the original STAR TREK from the folks at Farragut Films called STAR TREK CONTINUES.

They just announced their cast this weekend. Take a look. Looks like some heavy hitters with anime English-dub voice actors Vic Mignogna and Todd Haberkorn as Kirk and Spock respectively. There's also James Doohan's son, Chris, playing Scotty as well as Grant Imahara from Mythbusters as Sulu.

Looks like an interesting cast. Hopefully, they'll be telling interesting and dynamic stories that not only harken back to TOS, but also challenge our preconceived notions of the STAR TREK format, the STAR TREK formula.

It'll be good to see more Trek - but, man, a 54 year old playing the TOS 34 year old Kirk? That's kinda pushing it...

While the cast is interesting, I'm more interested in seeing who'll be contributing scripts and who'll be overseeing their creation. As I stated in this post in the Fan Film Writer's Primer, a good Story Editor can make all the difference in the world.

The key will be in the performance. After all, audiences are willing to believe a 40-something year old James Cawley as Kirk and were willing to believe Shatner, who was pushing 40 during TOS, as the 34-year-old starship commander.

I'm more interested in how the role is played by any actor, even Shatner, than how old that actor is. Moreover, I'm more interested in an actor who isn't Shatner and playing Kirk that he doesn't merely imitate Shatner, much like Chris Pine's excellent approach to the character in ST 09.

That guy looks to be holding up pretty well. I think it'll be fine.

Oh, I agree with you, of course. My enthusiastic interest is based on the information that is currently available.

As far as casting goes, I don't see a problem with age. I would never guess to look at Vic that he was 54, as he looks between 38-43 to me.

Re: STAR TREK CONTINUES — NEW FAN FILM WEB SERIES

It's not a matter of looks, per se. Whether someone looks young because of clean living and good DNA or facelifts and hairplugs - the sad fact is that as we age the way our body's move becomes different: something time in a gym doesn't really address. (watch Shatner's acting in "Deadly Years" to study this)...maybe Vic can pull it off. I'm just saying it's "pushing it" and he'll have to work hard to do it.

John Broughton and the Farragut crew are a talented, hard-working and decent crew who've built an admirable operation over the last seven years or so while remaining good friends with one another and most everyone they work with - not really easy to do. I wish them well with this.

The cast looks very good - great to get Chris Doohan, he looks like his father!! And Vic looks good as Kirk.

They have a full replica of the Desilu soundstage and apparantly all the actors are pros.

I love Phse II so don't expect me to take sides, but they have experience with Farragut, so it'll be interesting to judge the final product.

Re: STAR TREK CONTINUES — NEW FAN FILM WEB SERIES

Vic has a history of playing Kirk in Fan Films... Here's an exerpt from my webpage on his previous Star Trek Fan Film work:

My page: http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/32.html, ...
Vic's Vintage Voyages (all appear to be silent, 8mm film, with sound added later. I'm thinking Vic is Kirk.). First 3 are solo:
1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZ8_26_Y1Ck (0:42)
2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STjZCeHWV_0 (0:59)
3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0hHaNhKnIo (2:40)
Now we get a crew:
4: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4S7ujfwBCoc (3:16)
5: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EI_sE8fl864 (3:04)

(See my page for a more recent outing...)

I am trying to get the exact year this was done for my Historic Fan Film section. If he's 54, this HAS to be the late 1960s, which means I REALLY NEED A DATE ON THESE. PLEASE!!! SOMEBODY HELP ME!!!

By the way, I noted this coming series last January at the bottom of my Farragut page, vis: http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/22.html

IMDB says that he was born August 27, 1962, which would make him 49. These films were likely shot in the early/mid 70's.

One very cool opportunity down the line would be a full-fledged Enterprise/Farragut teamup - TNG/DSN/VOY never really took up such an opportunity.

It could be even like part 1 a Farragut episode and part 2 a Continues episode as a few US network shows have done, with characters appearing in both

IMDB says that he was born August 27, 1962, which would make him 49. These films were likely shot in the early/mid 70's.
But it claims, above, that he is 54... which would make these earlier... I NEED A REAL ACTUAL YEAR. Here is my "Historic Star Trek Fan Film" page, and these clearly belong: http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/204.html . All the films already listed have at least a year or a two year span. As you can clearly see, the earliest film I found is, like these, in 8mm WITH NO SOUND. Of course, my folks NEVER got a sound camera, but if these films were taken before Super8 got popular, these could easily pre-date Ray Gasser's work, perhaps even challenge Jr. Star Trek,... perhaps even 8mm Star Trek ... for the title of VERY FIRST STAR TREK FAN FILM EVER. At any event, for purposes of my Historic listing, I want more than a guess.
