I've been posting some images on the Exeter Facebook page (link), if anyone's interested. Some behind the scenes stuff and a frame from Act 4.
Unfortunately, it requires Facebook login to see.

It's great that it's still being worked on. I've always felt that Exeter captured the
feel of TOS better than all of the other fan films out there.

And I also don't use facebook so I'm out of luck.

I use Blender. I think I'm better at spaceships than bizarre environments So I don't know how useful I'd be.

Bizarre environment? Why didn't they just film in Jersey?

You have to admire the dedication involved in getting this episode completed. The latest clip looks very nice. I had no idea that filming took place over nine years ago. It looks like it was shot yesterday.

Maurice, have you considered an Indigogo campaign to raise some funds to hire effects artists? You could also try to get help by posting your project at wreckamovie.com.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

I'm aware of fundraising sites and we've talked about it.

Not sure if additional hands on the "weirdspace" effects would help at this point, but we are talking to some people about some very specific shots we need.

Speaking of weirdspace....

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

This is a TEST of the Exeter in "weirdspace". The lightning bolts were photographed off an electrical effect gizmo and double exposed in, keeping with the goal of creating effects which could have been accomplished in 1969. The ship is temped in to check motion and perspective, and no grain or color correction has been applied.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Very cool! I loved the section on the Behind the Scenes DVD of The Savage Empire that showed how Jimm and Josh managed to create all their visual effects using as much practical work as possible. Very excited to see you guys continued this practice on Tressaurian Intersection as well!

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

I really hate Facebook. I have no idea how to post a comment as I can do on a forum. I recently saw that there's a countdown on www.starshipexeter.com I'm hoping this isn't cruel joke as the timer seems to run out on April 1st.

If that's for real, it's kind of genius. If it really is an extended April Fools joke then that's deplorable.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Also, to whomever is moderating this Facebook page, I've hit the request button to be added to the group twice now. I see other people who have been added, but I never seem to get a response. Is there something I have to do as acknowledgement to make this happen?

It has been the holiday season. Perhaps the moderator of the Facebook page is away.
