Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

We'll be shooting this Saturday in the heat. Hopefully, we'll have some cool pics to post. I'm hoping we have only three more weekends in the heat, and then we can move inside.

"Cool" pics from shooting in the heat. There's a contradiction there somewhere. Stay safe, eat lots of Plomeek soup.

Actually, the amount of water, juice and soda we consumed last weekend was in excess of 15 gallons! The doughnuts, fruit and pastries weren't hardly touched at all.

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

Another awesome day of shooting on the planet Sumaya. Bugs didn't seem to be as bad. Temp didn't seem as hot, and we actually shot until 12:45pm or so. Some really great shots of the Vulcan children in William C. Searcy's album here: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb...344.1142255615

Next Friday, we'll be shooting with Eric Holt, Dennis Proulx and Christin Woods.

Next Saturday, we'll be shooting the T'Mek/T'Rike fight scene as well as a shot of the T'Mek governmental building as it's evacuated.

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

Thanks! I think Steve did a great job with it. We're finishing up the green screens, and two of our VFX volunteers are working on on the panel animations. I wish things were moving faster, but we're hoping to have "The Void" finished soon.

Meanwhile, filming continues tomorrow morning for "The Night the Stars Fell from the Sky"...

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

This is really starting to shape up. Nice to see what was on a script move to actual production and then towards final release.

The trailer really captures what is going on. Plus the CGI is great. From the trailer you can tell there is CGI (or some other SFX), but only to move the story along (unlike, say, certain higher budgeted Sci Fi films that were released in the past 15 years).

I really like the music. It captures the tension without taking over.

And on a personal note, you have a devilishly handsome Chief Helmsman (albeit on the plump side)! But that's just me.

It's been quite a thrill for me to see how the story I wrote has come alive.

Certainly can't afford them, so tell the story so it doesn't dwell on them. Same thing with all the other vignettes and episodes in the production line.

I'm looking forward to Steve's score, for sure!

Ha! You get your comeuppance soon enough, remember?

Well, yes it does! I have to tell you when I first met Jeff and heard his voice, I stopped him short: He was PERFECT for a starship captain. We get to see a lot of him in only a few episodes, but when he's there, man, is he a presence to be dealt with.

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

Have updated the website with lots of info, including a list of scenes that remain to be shot: www.projectpotemkin.com.

I think we only have three more days at the park to shoot. Then we'll move to Fast Copy for two days, the bridge for one day, and the stairwell at the GSW theater for one day.

And aside from voiceovers, at that point, we should be done with the filming of "The Night the Stars Fell from the Sky."

We also are hard at work still on the panel animations for "The Void." We've a number of volunteers working on it, and would always welcome more help.

Lastly, always be sure to check out our facebook page for the latest photos from the production: http://www.facebook.com/groups/projectpotemkin/

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

Project: Potemkin has been busy filming the last 16 weekends at the Radium Springs Gardens in Albany, Georgia. But that doesn't mean all our efforts have been focused on this episode.

Our first full-length episode, "The Void," is rapidly approaching completion. There's one act to go for Panel Animation VFX, and there's the music. Steve Gallant is hard at work on the episode. We expect to debut the episode this fall.

Work has begun on the panel animations for "Doctor's Orders" and "Delivery." Both these vignettes will be ready this fall as well, barring any major setbacks.

VFX work for "Miscommunication" is underway with Bob Reed taking on the dreaded flying pyramids of Gaius XI.

Editing has begun on "The Engineer's New Clothes," even though this episode will still need some 2nd Unit videography.

VFX work for "Archway" is being completed by Jon Carling.

Editing will begin soon on "The Devil in the Details" by Director Mario Pagan.

Filming continued on "The Night the Stars Fell from the Sky" with us filming in the ready room on Thursday, 9/29/11:



Other pics here: http://s1112.photobucket.com/albums/...0Room%20Shoot/

And filming continued on Saturday for this episode as well:





Additional photos can be seen here:

This shoot wrapped the Radium Springs Gardens location. Four more days of shooting, and this episode will be in the can!

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

Updated the main Potemkin page with an article and pictures on the Preserver cave shoot. Will be doing the same for the Transporter room shoot.

Transporter room construction well under way. Should be ready if we decide to shoot Thursday.
