Here's a few screen captures:



Sara Higgins-MacKenzie as Yanari
Jeffrey Green as Captain Grigory

Are these two angles in the same scene?

Excellent. Gorgeous. Where's Blair? That dynamic is wonderful. Truly. She's amazing. This is all so 70's cool.

Re: Project: Potemkin, a Star Trek Fan Film

Blaire is in Atlanta these days pursuing her career there. A lot more opportunities in the big city than down here, that's for sure.

We've since added three new cast members (Christin Woods as Ens. T'Noshi, Bill MacKenzie as Lt. Quenton T. Caley, and Hannah Ruiz as Lt. Doreen Spampinato) who share the role of Science Officer in our series.

Caley is on the second row on the right, and T'Noshi is on the bottom row, right.

Re: Project: Potemkin, a Star Trek Fan Film

The Project: Potemkin Film Expo went well. Attendance was a little light (due to their schedule change, we were suddenly up against American Idol with local musician Phillip Phillips competing), but we all had a good time watching the episodes on the big screen.

The very last VFX shot for S01-E "Miscommunication" has been uploaded, and I'm finishing the editing process tonight. Now on to Neal Manning for scoring and Steve Gallant for sound.

S01-F "The Engineer's New Clothes" is well underway with Bill Walker's excellent Engineering room serving in the background. Bob Reed is working on the green screen shots.

S01-G "Archway" -- we shot additional footage earlier this month with Doug Harper. This is going to be a good episode, and the new footage should solve a few problems with the episode. Alex Patrick Merrill is working on the VFX.

S01-H "Devil in the Details" -- Mark Brennan is hard at work on the VFX for this vignette. This one should be a fun one!

S01-2 "The Night the Stars Fell from the Sky" -- as the VFX for the vignettes above are completed, the VFX artists will be assigned shots from this upcoming episode. Presently, I'm guestimating it might be 90 mins long. Rick Foxx has done a masterful job of editing it, and we've only a few voiceovers left to record. We got most of them earlier this month.

We're well underway with the shooting for Season 2 with two vignettes in the can, another being shot in June, two in July, two in August, two in September, and then two in October. We're working with half a dozen writers right now, and are very pleased with how it's all turned out.

We've met quite a few talented people at the TrekTrax convention in Atlanta and at our Expo in Albany. This weekend, we'll be represented at Phoenix (AZ) Comicon (Rick Foxx and Alex Merrill) and at Phoenix (AL) Alabama Phoenix Festival (Renda and Tim Carr).

Re: Project: Potemkin, a Star Trek Fan Film

It's going to be really nice. The VFX guys have done a great job with it, and the story is by David Eversole, so it's solid.

Re: Project: Potemkin, a Star Trek Fan Film

Is Neal a Georgian native?

How long was 'the Void'?

Are all the vignettes going to be different lengths too as the episodes are which I think is a good idea now, though the uneveness might be offsetting to some (I hope not) because it breaks with format and expectations somewhat.

'Archway' sounds like a wickedly awesome idea. Did you write it (you devil) or Dave?

Looking forward to the larger opus bigger canvas of 'The Night the Stars Fell from the Sky's'. When do you guesstimate that will be ready to be uploaded?

What was the name of the last vingette?

More serious question. Do you see the webisode series community growing and giving rise to Netflix and Amazon going viral with their series lineups and movies, etc, whatever that means? Is this a viable outgrowth of the industry considering the startup thing with Marc Scott Zicree's 'Space Command' that is gonna put JJ's Trek to shame and the latest direct to video fan film franchises that could see new life on tv or netflix and/or Amazon someday?

Re: Project: Potemkin, a Star Trek Fan Film

Not sure where Neal's from, sorry.

"The Void" is 33 mins.

Vignettes vary in length, depending on the script. We're pleased with our flexibility.

"Archway" was written by me.

I'm not sure how long it will take to do the VFX for "The Night the Stars Fell from the Sky." I'm guessing that with all six VFX artists on it, it MAY be ready for Christmas, but I'm not promising anything these days for release dates.

The latest two vignettes produced (for the second season) are "Duty Bound" (written by David Eversole) and "Darkness" (which I wrote). "Second Contact" (written by Dave) will be shot in June. We've got plenty of shoots for this summer, with scripts from four different writers.

I have no idea about NETFLIX nor AMAZON. We're enjoying producing these short vignettes and lengthier episodes for our fellow fans to view on-line, via VIMEO and YOU TUBE or our site or even conventions (we're represented at two this weekend).

I've no intention nor aspirations nor delusions of grandeur for our productions. We're having fun, our viewers seem to enjoy what we're doing, and that's all that matters.

Just FYI:

Welcome to the first long holiday weekend of summer! With that extra time off, you'll have plenty of time to check out this week's reviews of Project: Potemkin's first vignettes, "The Old Guys" and "Care for a Lift?"

Here's the link for my review: http://www.fanfilmfollies.com/fan-fi...guys-care-lift[

Re: Project: Potemkin, a Star Trek Fan Film

Thanks for the reviews. Yes, Brian Reigert is indeed an unlikeable person, and these two shorts were meants to be test films.

The cast of Potemkin continues to turnover as our student-actors move on to other projects and different schools. Many come back now and then, many do not. All in all, you'll never tell who's going to be in an episode.

Right now, we're casting for our June 23rd shoot, and I think it may be one regular, one featured player, and four new cast members.

Re: Project: Potemkin, a Star Trek Fan Film

We're well underway with the shooting for Season 2 with two vignettes in the can.

Randy Landers and Linda Marcusky spent the morning and afternoon scouting locations for S02-C "Second Contact" (written by David Eversole and Randall Landers). We've turned to Deborah Liss-Green of Darton College for casting help, as this vignette requires a number of new players for our production. We're hoping to add some new folks to the ensemble with this production.

We're announcing that S02-D "Red Sky" will be filming soon. This vignette will feature Jeffrey Green and a guest star, as well as our transporter chief played by Pamela Robinson. It's a story based on a piece of artwork, and we will be employing the talents of a local artist to accomplish the task of mimicking the artwork.

Also upcoming are "Beach Towel" and "The Shovel of Kahless," two vignettes that make up a couplet in our story-telling. And "Ashes" which will be filmed in a nearby city square.

We're continuing to work on three scripts for this fall's shoots, including a comedic little short shot in the rec room (or possibly the ship's bowling alley), a lost colony script set in a nearby historic village, and lastly an alien race story involving a unique means of first contact.
