LOL That's actually Director William Walker's son, Thomas Walker, who's face down on the surface of planet Gaius XI. The makeup for the Andorian was quite effective from a distance, but we've noticed that for some reason, even though we matched it to the blue nitril gloves, it shows up as a different color in the video footage than it does in real life.
That has to do with the differing material qualities of the gloves and makeup. You always have to do camera tests to make stuff like that match.

Wasn't just that (which we should have done and didn't), but different cameras gave us different looks as well.

Barb, you live in Manhattan and have time to meticulously compile over a thousand fan films?
I haven't counted them in over a year. I know there are over 500. Where'd you get the 1000 figure, and who said I was meticulous?

If you want meticulous, look at Orion Press. Beautiful lay-outs, etc. For me, it's all quantity.

To address the intent of your question, I'm ill. Not deathly, but I have a heavy cough (you can't catch it, it's complicated) which means people find me obnoxious in group events. For many years I thought I would overcome it, in spite of the comments by my doctors I would never overcome it. But, 17 years after I got it, I now do accept the fact that however long I live, group events are not on my menu.

I do attend science lectures anyway. I sit near the door so I can duck out if I feel a coughing fit coming on. But some people resent me being there, too.

I'm lucky that online came along just when my ability to meet people in real life became difficult.

I wish I could clear my plate enough to renovate and rent out my Manhattan apartment and move somewhere cheaper. Maybe someday. I thought I'd do it when my father died, but he's 92 and there's nothing wrong with him that is likely to kill him anytime soon.

I hope that addresses your comments.

Oh, by the way, did you count my films? Are there 1000 of them now? I have no idea. I just say, "Hundreds" ....

Re: Project: Potemkin, a Star Trek Fan Film

Project: Potemkin is pleased to announce its attendance and involvement with TrekTrax Atlanta 2013 to be held April 19-21, 2013 at the Holiday Inn Perimeter in North Atlanta.


Tentatively representing Potemkin at this convention will be Randall Landers, Bill MacKenzie, Sara Higgins MacKenzie, Tim Carr and Renda Carr. In addition to having a dealer’s table, Project: Potemkin attendees will be involved with two Potemkin-related panels and a few others as well.

Project: Potemkin also is delighted to announce that we will be filming a short vignette to be filmed Friday evening at the bar. We plan on shooting this vignette around 10pm. Filming will last around 3 hours, perhaps 4 if things don’t go well. We’re presently developing a short script, and the vignette will be directed by Sara Higgins MacKenzie and edited by Randy Landers.

We will be featuring a few of our cast members as well as other individuals dressed in time-line appropriate costumes (around the time of Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country) . We would love to have a bar full of Klingons, Romulans, Orions and other unique aliens as well as officers and crew from other contemporary starships! The more, the merrier! All we ask is that you sign a release and be cooperative with our production team! And if you'd like to have some lines, please contact us! We'll be glad to include you!

On Saturday, the Potemkin production team will be editing the video into shape, including using pre-prepared VFX, music and credits. It is our desire to exhibit the event Sunday afternoon at 2pm

That sounds awesome! It's far enough out that I might just be able to get the boss to sign off on a trip to Atlanta for the weekend.

We're still clearing a few hurdles, but it is our intention to involve the convention attendees who want to be in our fan film with that production.

I take it this will be a mother Klingon bar given the umber of Klingons present at last year's convention. Sounds like fun.

Don't forget the comely Orion dancers from Tennessee.

In the treatment I've written so far, the bar owner is a familiar chap.

Re: Project: Potemkin, a Star Trek Fan Film

Project Potemkin "The Lucky One", wrapped up primary scene filming today at Renda and Timothy Carr's home, Birmingham, Alabama. This film short is set in Sickbay and the CMO's office and gives the fans a look into life in Sickbay and those all too fleeting moments for mortal existence.

Primary filming completed today, the only scene left to film is a key scene for CMO Drake in communique with Captain Gregory.

This vignette will give fans a deeper insight into Doctor Maura Drake, some of her medical staff and just where the good Doctor's heart is.

So, look for "The Lucky One" at a Project Potemkin Video site near you, coming soon.
