I, too, appreciate contracts written
in crayon or pencil... in either Latin,
Aramaic, or Klingon.

Just wanted to say the bridge is shaping up nicely judging from the Facebook pics. Just one question, the viewscreen looks smaller than normal in some of the shots, for example from behind the helm/navigation console. Maybe just a trick of the camera?

It's just in the pic. It does look rather odd there but looks correct in person. Robert went to a lot of trouble to duplicate it as closely as possible and although you can't make it out in the photo all of the feature lines and beveled edges look spot on.

When I get home tonight I'll post some of the new facebook photos here.

Re: Star Ship AJAX Production

That's a side effect of the lens you used on the camera. I'm not sure what you're using to photograph it, but you want to make sure you take lenses into consideration when you actually shoot on the set. I'm a big fan of the widescreen lens, which makes my little 12-foot bridge look a lot less cramped!

It's always worth reposting this picture to show how tiny things look when different lenses are used--even when they haven't been moved any farther from the camera:

That's a great picture, very informative. It's hard to say just how different the effect will be until your see it demonstrated like this.

Tim was using what appeared to be a no frills digital camera that day. Didn't have interchangeable lenses or anything. He may have been using a wide angle setting which created the effect.

Re: Star Ship AJAX Production

Yeah -- often the digital cameras have a portrait mode or a landscape mode. You can definitely see the difference on the spot. If you have a chance, try experimenting. It's fun and it'll give you a little experience when you start shooting for real as far as camera setups go.

It's worth noting that the camera actually is in a different place for each of those photos. The placement was altered so that the pink bottle appears the same size in each shot, to emphasize the effect that longer focal lengths make the subjects appear closer together while shorter focal lengths make the subjects appear farther away from one another.

The narrative implications of this being pretty obvious. If you want two people to subconsciously seem disconnected, you're going to use a shorter focal length in an OTS shot, to use one example.

...but just the same, an excellent illustration!
