Kitumba drive is in my possession and we will start working on it soon in LA.

That sounds a lot like "Houston, we are go for liftoff!"

Looking forward to seeing your final result.

I did. After securing the last of the "Kitumba" footage (thanks, Matt), I copied the 4TB drive before giving it to James Cawley. So it's still safe and sound.

Re: Phase II - Act One of "KITUMBA"

And Kevin Sullivan, who was editing Kitumba, has a copy of the drive since that is what he used to create the one I now have in my possession. So there are 3 copies.

Just goes to show you, NEVER allow the footage to leave your possession without keeping a copy, or you could either have it lost in transit, or even have some unscrupulous director/editor hold your episode hostage (and believe it or not, it is not just Phase II that this has happened to).

ALWAYS have 3 copies.

Re: Phase II - Act One of "KITUMBA"

I agree with Maurice that the cut is entirely too darkly lit. I don't know if that was the objective of the lighting design on the shoot or not, and even if it was that'd befine if it were consistently done.

The sound could be improved in places as well. Did I read somewhere up thread that this was the final sound but not the final color master?

I know this is listed as "Preview" on YouTube, but it's interesting that there are titles at the head of the episode that curiously omit Vic Mignona as either his Klingon character or as director of the episode. Given the brouhaha that erupted from whatever happened or didn't happen, it strikes me as an odd choice to make not including his credit.

As I'm not party to either side in the matter, I'll leave the speculation about why out of it, but given my own experience with television production and post-production, the absence of his credit at the beginning did jump out at me.

Just my two cents.

How can we NOT believe it, since it keeps getting brought up over and over and over...

Well, since I have heard of footage being held hostage by unscrupulous individuals at least two other fan films, maybe it is worth bringing up over and over. Seems there is a lesson that needs to be learned.

Re: Phase II - Act One of "KITUMBA"

While I think it is admirable that you are coming from a place of "We don't want this to happen to anyone again," it does seem as though you bring it up a lot. And the mob mentality of badmouthing the alleged perpetrator of said "unscrupulous individuals" while possibly not altogether unjustified, just comes across as petty and vengeful to the rest of us not part of whatever behind the scenes drama there might be. Just my two cents.

And just to be clear: Loken is speaking for himself. The views expressed do not necessarily represent the views of, and should not be attributed to the Star Trek Phase II production as a whole.

Re: Phase II - Act One of "KITUMBA"

I assumed as much. There's such obvious interconnective tissue between productions and personnel at the various fan films that it otherwise wouldn't make any sense if you all, as a group felt that way.

Anywho, I don't want to risk starting another thread detour. I digress.

Which of course, is exactly, and very purposefully, what you did.

Maybe we can keep this thread on track without the personal attacks?

Here is some of Pony Horton's work that will be seen in Kitumba.

Oh for crying out loud...

No personal attack intended. Merely posting an observation, and one I am not alone in noticing (as anyone who can read the last two pages of this thread can see.)

Thanks for the posting of my (fabulous) work!

As to Kitumba, it's simply not color-corrected yet. It'll look fine when that's done.

I'm open to editing it myself if Kevin gets too busy with his regular job. James knows I edit for a living. Once I was cutting on a scene from MIND SIFTER. He asked to see the scene, and I told him, "This is the rough cut first pass."
After it was over he said, "Man, your rough cuts are better than most people's finished work.!"

I can have it done in less than a month, even with my health issues.

If I can help, I'm here.

PonyHorton, your work looks great. Out of curiosity, which space shuttle do you envision that being on display at Starfleet Headquarters?
