James (Cawley) retro-ed his Bridge set
for "In Harm's Way", and very well done, at that!

Our bridge (in OKC) can be done
the same way, and probably will be
at some point for someone else's
project... It'll actulally be cool to
create & see the transformation.

Captain Atkin, that is only your opinion as to what should or should not be discussed, and we do not believe we revealed any confidential info here; we are merely sharing what we hoped to do with the sets in order to recreate the Pike bridge, because the question about trying to mimic the Cage bridge has been asked before.

And for you information, we have talked with the people involved with both Trek production studios about the use of their sets and we will not get into details here as to what we talked about, but that is how we know the rental cost for the Farragut sets and that Ajax has offered us the use of their sets at no charge.

We have simply provided this info to show that this is a serious production and that we have and that we are taking steps to "make it so".
I assumed that you had talked to both groups before you posted, but that doesn't mean you should start discussing the financial costs of using their bridge sets on a public forum. That stuff should be kept confidential, in my opinion; especially when you haven't decided yet which bridge set you are going to use. Yes, the Ajax sets are free to use, but bare in mind that people donated money to assist in the restoration of the Ajax bridge (myself included) to help keep it that way.

Anyways, best of luck with your production. I look forward to seeing it when it is done.

Re: Star Trek Begins - A New Direction

FYI, before this thread opened I knew the prices for both sets and although I wouldn't post them (they could change, and also I assume they WOULD change if, for example, the production needed to redress the set in some way) so those prices aren't secret. I am not nor am I planning to do anything but WATCH fan films and organize my index to make it easy for other people to WATCH fan films... so I just picked up the information from public places hanging around Trek forums, websites, and Facebook pages.

Well, a couple things.

I have heard from numerous sources what Farragut/STC wants a day to rent their sets. It is not private information. It is out there already and there is nothing private about that.

Also, Farragut/STC got a multimillionaire to donate the money to build those sets and rent the facility. No different than Ajax, other than Ajax got small donations from lots of people and John Hughes foot much of the bill. I think there are always people donating to get these sets and shows done. That isn't a differentiator John.

I don't begrudge Farragut/STC wanting to make back some of their money. (assuming that it does not violate CBS IP to do so). But I do applaud Ajax and Phase II, both of which just ask for actual expenses (like electricity) to use their sets.

Re: Star Trek Begins - A New Direction

Okay, so....any updates on this project? Or have they been run off the forums?

It looks like a lot of fun, and I'd like to see and hear more.

Neat stuff, so far. I like what I've seen of those jacketed uniforms.

Re: Star Trek Begins - A New Direction

I'm hoping it comes through. I love classic era fan-films.

I also think the complaints about what was said re. set costs is a tempest in a teacup. I don't see anything wrong with saying that Farragut Films charges for the use of their sets while Ajax doesn't. No numbers were mentioned, so it's just general information.

Re: Star Trek Begins - A New Direction

StarTrekBegins, I sent a message via your Facebook page about some question I had. Is that a good way to contact you or do you have a preferred method of contact? I am a new member here so I can't send a PM yet.
