Visiting sets of fan films?

I had a question that I couldn't find straight away on here, but it had me thinking since my family will be in D.C. for a couple days on vacation in August.

Since Farragut Films is in the D.C. area, can people do a quick tour of the sets if there isn't any filming? Just a general question, but it would be cool to see!

Farragut Films is based in DC, but 5 years ago they moved their studio to TREK SETS, which are housed in Studio 2 located in Kingsland, Georgia. With an almost 10,000 sqft facility – it’s literally the largest collection of free-standing Star Trek sets on planet Earth!
Sorry, check out their web site Starship Farragut.com

If you keep your eyes open, Farragut (in Georgia) and Stargate Studios (In Oklahoma City) both offer open houses for their sets. There is also talk of having a festival in Ticonderoga, NY (near Lake Champlain, a beautiful vacation area) which would include tours of those sets.

If you go to Georgia, Potemkin's sets are at Stellar Video Services' studio 3 hours away from Farragut's (we go to their open house every year!). We give tours all the time to folks who come by for a visit (avg about 2-3 per week). Folks are always welcome!

I've been to the Farragut/Continues and Potemkin sets. Both were a lot of fun!

Farragut's ARE spectacular. Ours do nicely for what we do.

Well if we had sets, we'd let people visit them.

Maybe one day.

Re: Visiting sets of fan films?

Our Phase II sets are in a new 13,000 square foot facility in Ticonderoga, N.Y. 12883 and are quite literally the most complete and accurate recreation and will be open to the public soon. We have gone way above what any other fan film studio has built in both quantity and accuracy. Our new facility is also both heated and air conditioned for more shooting options throughout the year.

And I am looking forward to visiting them one day James. Heck, if we had the funds, I would love to film Valiant there on some of the additional sets, (with your permission of course.) Your sets are indeed incredible.

That sounds like great news. Will there be arrangements for tours in the future?

I'm heading into GA to Savannah soon. Do you think STC would mind a visit on Friday/Saturday?

You should contact Michael Bednar through their website http://www.starshipfarragut.com/contact.html
It's kinda last minute, but if you make a donation to their production they probably will accomodate you...

It depends on their filming schedule. They're more than likely to invite you to Farragut Fest, a weekend-long event the first weekend in December.
