Ya'll have officially snagged my dollars. The teaser was outstanding - and you know your audience mighty well if you're offering shoulder patches as incentives.

Best of luck with the production!

Re: Star Trek: Axanar

Congratulations to the production team and crew at Axanar on such a stellar turnout!

While we still have yet to see a single frame of live footage (everything I've seen so far has been entirely visual effects of starships cruising from one direction to another through clouds in space), the bar is set pretty high. Despite our disagreements in the past, Alec, I am quite looking forward to seeing Axanar and how it turns out. You certainly have jazzed up the fan base. Looks like you guys are off to a great start!

Re: Star Trek: Axanar

Thank you guys.

Yes, each thing we do is a trial run and a proof of concept for the next thing we do. So this video was our first test, mainly to show we could actually shoot SOMETHING.

During this process our amazing post supervisor, Mark Edward Lewis, taught me how to edit and I edited the footage, while he sound designed it. (Though Rob Burnett will be editing both "Prelude" and "Axanar"). It is amazing how much knowing the editing process affects your vision of a story.

So we will go from an afternoon shoot, with a crew of 5 and 4 people on camera, to a crew of about a dozen in a 2 day shoot with proesthetic make up and 7 actors.

Then sit back, evaluate, refine, and do Axanar. A bit like Six Sigma in a way.

Alec

A little space program-esque, as well with that testing in stages.

This was your Mercury. Prelude will be your Gemini, and Axanar will be your Apollo.

Oh we love that. Told the director the other day. He chuckled.

Re: Star Trek: Axanar

The Axanar team has announced that we will be shooting all of our feature in Los Angeles. We are lucky enough to now have access to a huge warehouse facility, and a construction crew lead by one of the principle construction foreman who worked for Herman Zimmerman and Star Trek for 15 years.

While we had planned on using the Phase II sets in New York, our team is now too big to transport back there and modifying those sets is not practical anymore. It is actually better for both productions this way and we are pretty excited about the possibilities.

We plan on building TOS sets that can be modfied to be USS Ares sets as needed. That way we can shoot either time frame. The sets will be permanent.

I agree, the more top quality sets there are, the better off every fan film group will be.

This will be a huge boon for west coast fan groups.

Re: Star Trek: Axanar

Indeed. Alec, can you tell us where in Los Angeles you guys will be based? The valley? South Bay? Hollywood? etc. ?

Re: Star Trek: Axanar

Wow, that is likely to lead to MANY more fan films. L.A. has more film and TV talent... and more wannabees than anywhere else in the world. Build it and they will come and make fan films... But you might also want to contact the writers at Big Bang Theory. You know that Sheldon and his friends, if real, would crash your shoot. There is an obvious episode in that. And from what I understand, Mayim Bialik is quite the Geek. Although her character doesn't much care for Trek, she's the only cast member who actually does like it.

Re: Star Trek: Axanar

The sets will be housed in Valencia, 25 minutes north of Universal Studios. (I know as I live close by there). We have a 45,000 sf facility, which we will use a small portion of, but it also has 5,000sf of office space, so for a shoot you have plenty of space.
