Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

BTW, just so you know, there are three complete copies of the film data, each in a different city, so it's relatively impossible for any error to wipe it out.

You're just trying to jinx us with a Carrington Event.

So, does this mean that two other people are working on this along with you?

Well, Jimm Johnson has the master set and both Scott Cummins and I have copies. I also just backed up my current .FCP project files to DVD-ROM as extra safety of my work to date. Safety first!

Sure, I can send you the .FCP file, but minus the footage, it'll tell you nothing!

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

So I routinely did my monthly check of the Starship Exeter website today and discovered the domain has expired... Sad to see this project still incomplete and now suffering the indignity of being homeless. As much as Phase 2 seems to have eclipsed Exeter, this fan film was the one that really got me excited about the new genre. I think it was easier to accept new starfleet characters than re-portraying the classic crew/actors. I wish the Exeter creators well and thank them for what has been shared so far...

Very much this. I had a much easier time with a new crew, and Exeter's FX were crazy awesome. While Phase 2 is alright, this show caputred the feel of 60's era Trek much better IMO. Plus I liked the idea of seeing another crew during this time.

But it is what it is. I look forward to one day seeing the whole thing. Sad to think we won't see any new adventures with this crew.

Also sad to see one of the first and best fan film series go to the big starship in the sky. Maybe someday we'll see the full episode...

It's been a year since I published this article on Exeter. I really hope to follow it up with a story about the completed episode someday.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

If the site's down (Jimm sometimes forgets to re-up it), that's no indication of anything. The website's just the website.

I've just been working like mad on paying video work for the past few months (two music videos and I was Coordinator on a short film for UC Berkeley), plus I really needed to get the Polaris rough cut together so that visual effects work could get going, and that took weeks of solid work to make happen (and there's one sequence left to cut). That's the only news. It's really just a matter of free time on my part.

Scott Cummins and I are discussing how to divide up work to finish it. He already recut a short scene that I hadn't dealt with yet.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Yeah the website being down means nothing. As Maurice has explained, he's working on it. That's good enough for me.

The day Maurice or Dennis come in here and officially announce "The show's over, kids." then I'll wallow in my whiskey. Until then, I eagerly await the completion with anticipation and excitement.
