I suggest doubling your gatorade/bottled water budget. Working in that kind of heat will catch up with you if you don't stay well hydrated!
And, please, pace yourselves. Heat prostration is a bitch!!! As a 'big guy,' I know - its happened to me a few times.
As much as we all eagerly anticipate your debut, something like this isn't worth getting sick or hurt over.
EVER!!!
Agreed on all counts!

Do what you can as time and weather (and funds) permit.

As much as I'm chomping at the bit to get out there and do "my thing", I've got PLENTY to keep me busy here. Between AJAX stuff, Mellonpool and the Opera House's production of "Fiddler on the Roof"; sets and a 60' X 60' painted drop, I'm booked...and the Vermont temps are much milder!

No A/C in the place? I guess filming will be limited to the winter months.

Try shooting in 110°F under the sun with 90% humidity like we did on Polaris. Our cameras would overheat and shut down. Yikes.

What were you shooting with? The fact that you could keep them running even for a short time under those conditions is impressive!

Re: Star Ship AJAX Production

It may be too hot in Oklahoma, but up here in Vermont, I continue to forge ahead. My gorn Sculpt complete, I got it into the mold, pulled it...and the front half broke right down the center of the face! Obviously old ultracal....(I've NEVER, EVER broken a mold before)

After much cursing, shedding of tears and gnashing of teeth, I did a little forensic reconstruction, Built it back up, filled the cracks and recarved in reverse where needed. Three successful pulls in latex rubber so far....you'd never know it had fracked up!

Got several props to build...a couple of hypo sprays and "clipboards" or "logbooks"...anyone know the dimensions on those? (you know...the black clipboard thingies)

I've got several other doctor tools made, or am in the process of finishing....reader tubes, scanner...things like that...

Fun question: Do you think some Gorn subordinates might have tough-looking piercings in thier head frills? It's an idea I'm just toying with. I've got a friend who makes the most amazing chainmaile jewelry....They otherwise look just like the classic Gorn, with a more realistically detailed surface texture.

Indeed it is! I've made a basic sculpt, and to each one that comes out of the mold, I'm adding little changes to give them their own personality...But one will be VERY familiar....

I'd love to post a pic, but can't seem to....

Any chance of posting pics for those of us that dumped Facebook?

Or maybe start a Google+ page?

Thanks!

Mars - I would love to post the pics here
for everyone (especially the ones not on FB),
but every time I try, they won't post...
Can't seem to figure out the method.

What type of problems are you having? For example, you could upload them to a photobucket account and then post the links here. If you need help, I could walk you through it...or if you wanted to email me the pics I could post them for you.
