Awesome. I hope you show more behind the scenes stuff of your puppet builds.

Re: Borderline Trek Film

I made a lot of progress this last three-day weekend. I'll try to post pictures this week, but I was able to block in most of the "Ceiling soffit" around the back half of the bridge as well as most of the removable flooring.

Since I live in an area that is ungodly hot during the day, I also spent a good portion of the weekend building puppets. So, all in all, it was a very productive three days!

Re: Borderline Trek Film

Here's some of the video we shot on the set this weekend. No real puppetry yet -- unless you count camera moves -- but you can see sort of how some of the set ups will look in the finished film!

Re: Borderline Trek Film

Looking really good there. How much longer do you think it will be before you start filming?

Re: Borderline Trek Film

Probably a couple of months. Even if the set comes together sooner than that, I don't think the puppets will be ready before then.

So much to do when everything that appears on the screen -- including actors -- has to be fabricated!

Re: Borderline Trek Film

I'm not really posting this publicly, but I thought you guys would like to see one of the puppets I've been working on for this film of mine. This is No-da -- Yoda's black sheep brother that uses the "grey side of the Force" for things like horse racing and picking up women. He basically performs the same function in my film as the high Vulcan priestess that tells Spock that his path lies elsewhere during Kohlinar in TMP.

Enjoy!

Re: Borderline Trek Film

It looks like we're moving the set to the studio this weekend, where it will be painted and readied for filming. I'd say it'll be nice to get the garage back, but in reality, it'll just clear up space so I can build flats that will eventually become the engine room and other parts of the ship.

Also working on a new website for the film which should go active in a week or so!

Really looking forward to it!

I've got at least two more years before I have to return the carport to its original condition.

Re: Borderline Trek Film

So, I'm still chugging along on this project. I've been focusing mainly on storyboarding the entire film (almost done with that, finally) and have begun building the puppets. Here's one of them, enjoy!
