Re: Star Trek ~ Project Potemkin "Darkness" S02-B NOW ON-LINE

I will ask him to consider that. He doesn't receive an advance copy of the script or the episode though, and I'm not sure that you can add the subtitles in later. I also would like to learn how to do the SRT files so I can subtitle in English as well.

English subtitles make the films available not only to the hearing impaired, but to thousands of Star Trek Fans around the world for whom English is not their first language, and who could follow the film with much greater ease and enjoyment if they also have the benefit of the written script. Just my two cents based on what I read when I visit non-English Star Trek boards hunting for foreign fan films.

Yeah, that's certainly desirable. But until I figure out how to do it, it won't get done, unless someone wants to step forward and volunteer to help?

You can add subtitles at any point. In fact, one of the easiest approaches is to let YouTube auto generate them. They'll be hilariously wrong, but the timing for the lines will be roughly there, and you can then edit them. I just did it for this music video. Once you know how, it'll take maybe an hour for a vignette.

George Kayaian did it for the film he made using his 4 year old daughter as the 'writer'. I couldn't understand what she was saying (sadly, never a mother) he did the subtitles in record time. I then used backtracks from my website to several foreign language Trek boards where the film was being favorably compared to films most of us who speak English as our first language would consider much better films. The subtitled had enabled them to follow his toddler's story, which made the toddler's film work better for them than the better, but not subtitled, works.

I am not the writer/editor Maurice is, and I'm not the editor, producer, or just work horse Randy is, but in the course of indexing Star Trek Fan Films and tracking the uses of my index, I find out a lot of interesting stuff. For whatever it's worth, I try to pass it along.
