Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

How'd they do the effect for the energy barrier in "Where No Man Has Gone Before"?

It always looked to me like a combination of water tank F/X and some sped-up and color filtered footage of a cloudy sunset.

Or maybe they went to the edge of the galaxy with a movie camera.

Clearly, that's the most plausible explanation. Anyhoo...

Thanks Maurice for your updates and I'm looking forward to the final product.

Moving along...



...here's a "behind the scenes" shot from the B-camera, catching the A-camera being propelled down the corridor set. Since it as shot on an actual studio stage, TTI features a number of high-angle shots, as there was room to get the camera well above the tops of the sets.

Looks great! I especially like the honeycomb shadow on the wall. Overall, I really like the way these sets were lit. If I remember correctly, it was done by kids from the Austin School of Film.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Several professional crew guys who were working at Austin Studio on other things got involved in the shoot, including on lighting.

Ahh..maybe it was the school who provided the lights and lighting crew that I'm remembering. Nice that some pros were around to help.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

What really impresses me in this show as I go back through it is the camera work. There's a lot of really good angles that are not the obvious ones, and quite a few shots where the camera dollies or jibs around to follow characters. Quite a few "stacked" shots with characters in the foreground, midground and background.

Do you know if it was storyboarded that way? Was there a cinematographer involved? Was it Scott Cummins' direction or Jimm's vision...or maybe a collaborative effort? It definitely has "look' to it.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

There was some minimal storyboarding. I know, because I did some of it (I storyboarded the opening bridge scene, and the Tressaurian beam-in and subsequent action in Act 2). I couldn't speak to exactly whose idea(s) it was, but I know Scott looked at a lot of TOS to see what their camera work was like. I do know they used two cameras for some scenes, and the B camera sometimes was put in an unusual perspective.
