Ironsides? With first officer Eve Whitfield?

Seriously, I suggest links if you want people to know who/what you are about.

Re: Starship Ironsides

I think it's this one: https://www.facebook.com/StarshipIronsides?ref=stream
Discussed here: http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=203143

My write-up: Golden Age, Adult fans, live action out of Rochester, New York. some from Project Potemkin. Originally others were from Phase II, but I have been told they are no longer with this project. Says they have been working on this film since 2010. They announced they had gotten a camera on July 5, 2014.

Re: Starship Ironsides

Actually, it is and it isn't. The original Trekbbs thread was with the original co-exec and writer. The mission and ship crew have changed. (as have the production crew) According to the facebook page they are doing the standard "5 year mission" now.

Bob, if you want help, you're going to be more successful if you write a post saying what you are looking for and giving some detail on your show. The "About" on your Facebook page really says nothing, and you can't expect people to go digging for what you should be putting out there.

Ok.. Not sure what more to say as far as a description is concerned. One of the problems is i can not write. I can do a lot of things that need to be done but writing is not one of them. The production is a TOS based, about early season 2. We are going to shoot it so it looks like it was shot in parallel with the Enterprises adventures. Who am I looking for? Writers, actors, film crew such as camera and sound people, gaffers, and folks who just want to help out.

I do not know your area of NY that well, (grew on the Island, and now I am in Baltimore) would love to come up and perform but with a family, a year left in my MBA and a new job so I would be a scheduling nightmare. That said I would try the following

Writers, online forums of course, but look up sci fi writing fourms

production crew -Meet up sites, again community theatre, local colleges,

actors,- community theatre, local colleges, craigs list

Quality costs

For story ideas is to workshop an idea - get your pals together and a recorder and just walk through an idea and see where it goes

The scope of a productions is a bear, and there are tons of books on making a no budget movie.

Invest in lights and audio ( the Zoom products are really good) think about what you have access to, set and costume wise where are you getting your costumes the futura boots are like 55 a pop you can pick up cheap flat front pants at Walmart, but the tunic is the bear, how exact do you want it to be ? Make up yes Vulcans would be the least expensive to do with off the shelf ears

I live as far from the Island as I can and still be in NY!

I have not thought of some of those places to look for help. Thank you I will see what I can do.

Eqwipment, I am in good shape here. Light stands, lights, ok pro sumer camera. Sound I am in great shape as I have done sound for years. Costumes. Again pretty good shape as I have had some great instruction on how to make them myself. Here is a look at my first attempt:

Thanks for your reply. Hope I have answered a few questions.

Re: Starship Ironsides

In the last several days we have made some big strides in our production. We are looking at several scripts, picked up a few willing bodies to be crew. Finished off our sound kit and started testing video, audio and lighting together to learn how to use what we have. Have another crew member helping with costuming and will have more pics up this week. Things are looking good.

That's great, I was also thinking you might want to start with a short, to get started it could either be the cold open to the larger epic you will make, or just fun shake down cruise.

Qaplah!

Try answering these questions for folks:

What is the ship's mission?

Who are the crew?

Is this a one-time thing or a series?

What are your goals for the production long term?

CGI or live action?

If live action, where are you going to film? Green screen or sets?

Why should people help you? (standard PR - what are they going to get out of it? like "more fun than a root canal"! "A million dollars for each crew member!" "we're starting out and you have a chance to help build a fan film from the ground up - making a major impact with your work!")

What's your budget and how are you paying for it?z

There are others...but those will get most people's basic questions answered and generate more interest.
