Oooooo! Me like! I might just use that art in a review of an upcoming Potemkin release. Of course, I'd have to edit out the text at the bottom, but that should still be a great illustration!

I'd have a VERY difficult time editing that out, Randy! You folks were downright clever in its placement in the illustration. Also, I always put a link at the end of the review to send folks to the producers' Website.

So two times should be the charm!

Re: Project: Potemkin, a Star Trek Fan Film

A busy week ahead for us:
  • Securing location for Saturday's shoot on Monday.
  • Testing the RC Helicopter and GoPro camera on Tuesday.
  • Finalizing the cast for this weekend's vignette on Wednesday.
  • Working on the background artwork for a later vignette with the artist on Thursday.
  • Relaxing on Friday.
  • Shooting vignette "Second Contact" (by Dave Eversole) on Saturday 9-3 on location, and at Ready Room set 4-6.
  • Shooting a scene for Starship Valkyrie at the Ready Room from 6-7.

We are still seeking local cast members if anyone is interested.

Re: Project: Potemkin, a Star Trek Fan Film

I'm not familiar with Valkyrie -- another local production, or doing some second unit for them?

Off to google...

Another production which wanted Jeff Green in a cameo as Captain Grigory.

I'm a bit curious, how'd that turn out?

Re: Project: Potemkin, a Star Trek Fan Film

Well, the Go-Pro was having issues, but my discussion the the RC pilots was very off-putting. They would not come to our location; no cast members within 20 yards of the copters; and the ones with enough power to lift the camera were, well, potentially lethal. The guys basically wanted the cast to come to the airfield and shoot the final shot there, but with them 20 yards away from the copter. I was also unconvinced that the copter could hold steady enough to keep the cast in the field of frame.

I still may give it a try for a different vignette or episode, but probably from a different vehicle. One of the locals was offering a lift for us to use, and that might do nicely.

Re: Project: Potemkin, a Star Trek Fan Film

UPDATE TO ALL EPISODES IN PRODUCTION -------

S01-E Hoping to get the music for "Miscommunication" any time now.

S01-F Finishing up "The Engineer's New Clothes" and will be turning it over to the VFX for any final touches. And then it's off for scoring and sound effects.

S01-G Supposed to meet with an artist about a couple of matte shots for "Archway" this coming week. Hopefully we'll have this one wrapped by summer.

S01-H "Devil in the Details" is in the hands of a VFX artist right now. Hopefully we'll have it ready soon.

S01-2 About to get serious on "The Night the Stars Fell from the Sky" with the same artist doing the mattes for "Archway." We NEED VFX artists. If you or any one you know might be interested, please have them contact me. The more VFX artists we put on this project, the sooner it will be ready for release.

S02-A Have turned over rough cut for "Duty Bound" to Rick Foxx for editing.

S02-B Have done same for rough cut of "Darkness." Chris Cameron is eager to work on "Darkness."

S02-C Have turned over footage of "Second Contact" to Rick Foxx for editing.

S02-D Going to scout locations for "Ashes" in Americus on Sunday afternoon. This one should shoot as soon as I line up a day and see who's available to shoot in July.

S02-E Same artist to deal with "Red Sky at Night." This one will shoot as soon as we get the final set done. We will need a 40-60 year old actor, good physical condition, no facial hair, to play an old friend of Captain Grigory. This should shoot in August.

S02-F Have discussed costuming needs for "Beach Towel" with Sara Higgins Mackenzie. (She's also working on getting Abby Evans' new uniform shirt.) Probably going to have recast Carter Winston's role. Anyone interested should contact me. Actor should be 40+ and have a nice moustache. I'm hoping for a September shoot.

S02-G Have decided on the Ft. Gaines' watchtower fort at the Frontier Village for the setting of "The Shovel of Kahless." We've already cast a few people for this episode. I'm hoping for a October shoot. We are soliciting Klingons for extras.

S02-2 Have decided on the Ft. Gaines' frontier village proper for the prospective episode, "Two Worlds," being written by Chris Coleman's dad, Ray. We will be soliciting local folks in Ft. Gaines for a November shoot. This episode will be shot over a Friday and Saturday, depending on the availability of cast members.

In addition to these eight productions for the second season, we are looking at two additional scripts, but would be glad to consider anything anyone is interested in submitting.

That pretty much sums up things. Real life is always an impediment. The availability of our cast members and production crew will affect the scheduling, no doubt, and the likelihood we'll stick to this tentative itinerary is nill.
