Dennis has done his name changes legitimately.

Glad the rank is back. It's so you. Anyway, back to Polaris?

Working hard on it and hoping to have something more to show in August. A lot of our critical resources took a recent brief backward leap in time to 2005.

He-he. Us Exeter fans really appreciate that.

If it weren't for Maurice and Scott Cummins, the end of Exeter would probably never have seen the light of day. Among the other folks who've worked hard to put it together who are also contributing to Polaris are the composer Hetoreyn, Michael Struck at NEO F/X and Ralph Miller on sound.

Re: "Polaris"

I'm really anxious to see Polaris come to fruition. I've had little time for creative endeavours since becoming a father, and this was the last major thing I worked on.

Re: "Polaris"

I wish we could have done it much more quickly than it's proceeding. I simply underestimated the complexity (among other things) of post production to a greater degree than I did the rest of the process (all of which also had its unexpected challenges).

Ah well, if it were easy it wouldn't be as satisfying. I think.

The more difficult the endeavour the more glorious the victory...or something like that.

Anyone who's thinking of putting together a fan film should have this hanging over their door.

All this post work is why my next film is going to have ZERO opticals. Hell, I'll write the credits on butcher paper in crayon and roll them by the camera to avoid it!!!

That would work. I like the crayon touch. Star Trek Reviewed has a few Star Trek Fan Films by kids who also made crayon drawings of space ships.

I probably won't be touching scifi for a while, anyway. The stuff I want to make is more contemporary drama.

Re: "Polaris"

A friend of mine came up with a great idea to replace a credit roll in a video class...she was tasked with producing a public service video touting recycling. She had no CG so she came up with the idea of creating a series of newspaper mockups. She threw them in front of a rolling camera. The first one had a headline "Almost Everything You Do" and the second one said "Creates Garbage". It got the message across and actually was more compelling than a credit roll would have been. She would agree completely with Maurice's signature quote from Mr. Welles.
