Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

Have updated our Photobucket page and FaceBook page with pics of the transporter room construction. Our next expected shoot is November 2nd with the landing party cast beaming up aboard. It's a critical scene, and we should have the set done by the end of the weekend.

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

Looking great! Is the vast majority of the background going to be computer generated? If not, we used to use those egg crate light diffusers on the side to create the movie-era Transporter backdrop. They come in 2 x 4 panels and with 8-10 of them, you can make the entire backdrop.

We were lucky at the time -- my dad used to work for a hardware store and managed to get almost an entire palette that were chipped for free. Always like the sets on the cheap -- but it worked great for a backdrop!

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

For the transporter room, it's going to be a physical set. I'll be trying to different approaches for the background tomorrow and will pick the one I like best. We have access to some of those crate light fixtures (they're overhead in fact), and may use them or even some standard light crystals with a flashing light behind it. Depends on how it comes out tomorrow.

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

We are very close to releasing "The Void" and "Doctor's Orders" -- "The Void" is undergoing scoring right now. It is the last step to be completed. "Doctor's Orders" is receiving credits right now. Everything else is done with the episode, but we'd like to release it after "The Void." The next vignette, "Delivery," should be done soon as well.

This weekend, I updated the NEWS section of the Project: Potemkin website with an article on the construction of the transporter room http://www.projectpotemkin.com/index.php?id=154), and tweaked the upcoming shoot list as well as the production list: http://www.projectpotemkin.com/index.php?id=151.

November 19th is coming up, and I've got to get Communications, Science, Tactical and Helm/Navigation redone. We're also looking for a fill-in at communications as Stephanie Burke has a meeting she must attend out of town. Interested parties should contact us as soon as possible.

Everything's coming along nicely, and we're looking forward to releasing the episode and followup vignette very soon!

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

Today we shot the next to the last group of scenes for Dave Eversole's "The Night the Stars Fell from the Sky." The shoot went very well!



We've posted a number of pics to our Facebook group and our Photobucket album.

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

This in from Composer/Sound Engineer Steve Gallant regarding "The Void," our first full-length episode:
Just a quick update:

I'm now working on the final two cues... but as luck would have it, one of them is likely to be the most complex to score (longest as well)... but will get there very soon.

Thanks, ya'll, for ya's patience.
We're definitely going to be releasing this episode soon.

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

Wednesday evening will mark the end of the first unit filming for "The Night the Stars Fell from the Sky" as Jeffrey Green will film one last ready room scene for the episode. Once complete, the episode will be considered wrapped and will head straight into post-production.

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

It's a WRAP. This evening at the ready room set at Fast Copy, Jeffrey Green filmed the last scene needed for "The Night the Stars Fell from the Sky." We'll be sending it to post-production soon. Congrats to all involved with this production.

Re: New Star Trek Fan Film

A few updates:

VFX work/sound/music remains for "Delivery" (S01-D), but the episode is fairly close to completion.

Rick Foxx has undertaken the editing for "The Night the Stars Fell from the Sky." He reports a good bit of progress already.

Lastly, "Assigned Duties," the first vignette of the second season of Project: Potemkin will begin filming January 13th & 14th at our bridge set in Albany, Georgia. This is a really solid episode written by David Eversole which introduces our new navigator.

Stay tuned for more details!

Re: Project: Potemkin, a Star Trek Fan Film

That's one of our camera operators (and a Vulcan healer) for "The Night the Stars Fell from the Sky." She's making her first appearance as a regular character in this weekend's vignette shoot, "Assigned Duties" as Yeoman Yanari.
