Happy Happy Joy Joy! I found some VFX elements I didn't think I had! That cuts down the number of re-renders I need to ask for. Whew.

So the light at the end of this tunnel isn't an oncoming train after all?

Well, every little piece that doesn't need to be done or-redone shortens the route.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

If there's ever a DVD of the finished product I'd love to hear a bonus commentary track!

Jimm and Josh did a commentary for the first one. I would think doing a commentary will be the easiest part of what still needs to be done. Heck, why not just audiotape the premiere night?

There's already a lengthy "making of" piece on the hard drive with all the footage.

How the final part was rescued would be a fine addition!

I dunno if "rescued" will be the right word. It was always going to be finished. I'm just helping make that happen.

One thing I will address in detail when this whole process is finished is how project organization affects editorial. The biggest issue I have with editing this show is not being able to find all the pieces because of inconsistent asset naming and files not being placed in some consistent directory structure. I have five drives here with literally thousands of files, which is why I keep stumbling across things I didn't think were here. For instance, I just a few days ago found the beauty and matte passes for a shot of the Exeter swooshing by, which I had been looking for months ago. There's ADR that's not labeled as such, etc.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Perhaps a featurette entitled, "How NOT To Make A Fan Film"...

Totally unfair. It's a fan production. Real life has a way of shunting one's hobbies off to the side.

I have an Amiga computer from which I can no longer access files. On it is an almost-ready TNG fanzine from 1992, about the time the club I used to run transformed into something else. I could have kept going, but suspected I might end up with a garage full of fanzines. And real life was getting in he way. Prior to that particular issue, my previous publication had incorporated a rescue of a friend's unfinished attempt to get "just one more" Trek fanzine out, before real life got in her way.

I also made fan films in the 80s and 90s. On numerous computers are ideas that never made it. Again, real life has a way of getting in the way for the whole of the potential cast and crew.

How not to make a fan film is to not even start making one.
