Fallen Star - Episode 1 (it's not Star Trek, but it's close)

I wasn't sure where to put this. It's not Star Trek, but it's an homage of sorts. Well, it's an homage to Star Trek-styled science fiction... just with a British twist (slightly Red Dwarf).

(No, it's not a live-action version of my Start Wreck comic, but believe me, we did consider it.)

A friend and I created this together, on a budget of almost nothing (we borrowed cameras, equipment and 'actors'). I did all the editing and effects myself.

It's called 'episode 1' but it will likely be the only one we do, simply because it was so time-consuming. Anyway, enjoy:

(It's in ten parts. It's 53:25 long.)

Re: Fallen Star - Episode 1 (it's not Star Trek, but it's close)

Wow, I love this! It makes me wish my website included non-Trek Films! Great show!

Heck, I inappropriately put it here: http://startrekreviewed.blogspot.com/2009/06/244.html

Warning: for whatever reason, Part 2 stops playing for me about halfway through: (2:55)

By the way, Captain Logan does an amazing American accent... I thought he was a fellow Yank until he slipped when he 'got up' from sleep!

Thanks, hope you enjoy it.

In the meantime, here's the third and final VFX showreel (don't watch these until you've seen the film):

I didn't catch it when I first watch the film, but in watching this VFX reel when I saw the "Tri-Corder" device you were using. I believe that it is HD disk recorder, for tapeless acquisition of video & audio. Were you shooting on JVC? I use the DR-HD100 with my JVC GY-HD200u.

I can't remember what the two models of camera we used were, as neither of them belong to me -- but you're quite correct, that was an HDD recorder we used for the prop.

Just thought I'd mention the fact that I've posted a review of this production. You can find it at SciFiPulse.net at this Web address:

I quite enjoyed this, and did I hear a Wilhelm scream when they were on the station ?

You sure did!

Did you also notice the lightsabers? There's at least three of them...

Really clever effects.

I liked Logan's accent. Also, the Admiral's final orders - "No life, and no civilizations."
