Re: Project: Potemkin, a Star Trek Fan Film

We're pleased to announce that our next vignette, "Ashes," will be shot next Sunday, 11am - 2pm, in Americus, Georgia. This short vignette, written by Randall Landers, involves a landing party as they beam down to a Preserver-seeded planet and find a tragedy in progress.

Our thanks to the City of Americus and Angie Singletary for cutting through the red tape to allow us to film near the historic Windsor Hotel.

We are looking for extras to wander up and down the street. No costuming required. No decorated T-shirts, please (this planet undoubtedly has been spared the unmatched benefits of Meat Load, to be sure). But regular street clothes will be perfect!

We hope to have pictures from this shoot sometime next week!

Coming Soon: The Engineer's New Clothes

A situation arises with new uniforms from Starfleet Command, and Lt. Yilmaz may find he has met his match on the Potemkin.

Those flying pyramids sure looked familiar.

Re: Project: Potemkin, a Star Trek Fan Film

That's an amazing coincidence! I've never seen anything like them before.

In all fairness, I had the original story idea come to me while driving across state to see my son's football game. We passed through an extensive bit of farmland, and occasionally you'd see a field with these giant orange pumpkins. That had me thinking that what if we had our landing party being chased by these flying orb things.

I turned the idea over to David Eversole, and somehow he came up with making them pyramids to make them even more alien. He completed the script, and we turned the idea over to Bill Walker to see what he would come up with. Bill created original artwork based on David's description, and I had Bill add some of the details such as the fleshy protuberances that appeared on each face. The faces actually glow eerily before the lightning bolt is fired.

While I concede the similarity, I can assure you that it was entirely coincidental.

You'll notice the characters running through a field of them. Those were made of varying sizes of 65# astrobright cardstock, and cut and folded.

Randy, did you steal the design for the pyramid?

My attorneys, Dewey, Cheatam and Howe, have advised me to inform everyone that those designs were NOT stolen from Mr. Imhotep, and that any claims that they were are simply scurrilous.

I also like how they're not bothering to turn her around so her face is not in the dirt.

Re: Project: Potemkin, a Star Trek Fan Film

LOL That's actually Director William Walker's son, Thomas Walker, who's face down on the surface of planet Gaius XI. The makeup for the Andorian was quite effective from a distance, but we've noticed that for some reason, even though we matched it to the blue nitril gloves, it shows up as a different color in the video footage than it does in real life.

Secret Voyage had incredible Andorian make-up. Maybe they'll share how they do it?

Re: Project: Potemkin, a Star Trek Fan Film

I actually noted a different problem with their approach, and it's one I noted with S02-C "Second Contact." Andorian antennae can wobble while running. Definitely rethinking the antennae for Project: Potemkin.

Re: Project: Potemkin, a Star Trek Fan Film

Yep. He stole it from the Dashur Necropolis, (was being built around 2600 BCE) and it flew him to the afterlife and back... just like it did the Pharaoh and the Andorian. Lucky for him, the Pharaoh's copyright ran on it about 5000 years ago, just 50 years after his patent.
