Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

I did, too. George Kayaian came up with the species for his fan film series, The Multiverse Crisis. I saw the commander of a tug with the same get-up and decided that was a unique look, and asked him if I could use the species before we went with it. While George's series gets little notice here, it's really quite an interesting storyline. More info here including links to various episodes: http://www.fastcopyinc.com/orionpres...rse_crisis.htm

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

On February 5th 2011, filming was completed at the Albany bridge set for "The Engineer's New Clothes," starring Mario Pagan. Using the Panasonic DV900, filming of the two and a quarter page vignette took two hours under Randy Landers' direction, and it was a good experience. We used a different tripod (Mario had one) and the Panasonic in HQ mode. We also used a different lighting system, a 500W unit which is less light than we normally use, but I think it worked well. We also get our first look at a crewmember's quarters and even a sonic shower! The remaining scenes for the vignette will star William Walker as Chief Engineer Barton and will be shot at a green screen facility in Atlanta. This episode will be produced and edited by William Walker and is expected to be released after "Miscommunication."

Next weekend, on February 12th, 2011, filming will begin on the vignette, "Miscommunication," starring Stephanie Burke. This is an exciting short film as a landing party comes under attack! This vignette will also introduce a few new characters and cast members. Filming will take place at a wooded area on private property in Leesburg, Georgia. This episode will be filmed, directed and produced by William Walker, and was written by David Eversole. Filming is expected to be complete in one afternoon.

Your idea of experimenting with different equipment by making vignettes is a good one. Love it.

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

Thanks, but I worry that by the time we get it all figured out, no one will be watching fan films anyway...

Why? There will always be a "market" for fan films.

LOL Because it may take us a very long time to figure it out.

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

It's a Wrap for "Miscommunication!"

On Saturday, February 11th 2011, filming took place on location in Leesburg, Georgia, which doubled for the surface of planet Gaius XI. This episode starred Stephanie Burke as Lieutenant Sharon Mtume and new cast member Richard Thornton as Lieutenant Darrell Frazier, and featured newcomers Hannah Ruiz as Lieutenant Doreen Spampinato and Thomas Walker as Ensign Thuul, an Andorian. Bill Walker, who will directing, editing and producing this episode, managed to film the five page script in four hours. Helping the matter was that three of the performers were local drama students/actors.

Although the chilly temperature made for an uncomfortable shoot at first, it soon warmed up and shooting went extremely well. This was the first location shoot for Project: Potemkin. Even with limited power and facilities, Bill Walker was well prepared for the conditions. Hosting the event were Karen Johnson and Linda Marcusky, with chicken wings from The Crowbar in Albany, Georgia. Randy Landers served as Assistant Director, while Thomas Walker, Bill's son, also helped with the reflector used for lighting.
This vignette, written by Davis Eversole, is a serious vignette, steeped in the spirit of Star Trek and science fiction. We also are introduced to our new security officer, Lieutenant Darrell Frazier, who is both young and new to the Potemkin. We also meet Science Officers Doreen Spampinato and Thuul who find themselves in the midst of a crisis!

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

changed Doris to Doreen just to keep it a little unique -- and I'm worried about how Spampinato is said throughout the production, but Bill Walker has all the footage now, and it's in his good hands

I personally like how Thruul's tricorder is open -- he was hit because he was trying to get readings.

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

Just noticed you said five page script. Did you cut a page and a quarter or so, or just rounding down?

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

No, just couldn't remember last night. It's indeed 7 pages. We changed one thing to make the scene with the critical prop work at the end.

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

A General Notice to Everyone:

We are looking for additional post-production help, especially in the areas of VFX and editing. Right now, we've several projects in post-production, and I'm afraid we're overwhelming both Bill Walker and Tom Scott.

If interested, please let me know!

We appreciate the offers for help coming in! Either I or Bill Walker will be in touch shortly. We're still looking for VFX folks to assist in our upcoming episodes!

BTW: "The Old Guys" just hit a thousand viewers (YouTube and Vimeo)!
