    Oh, yes. And that's just the sort of thing you need a holographic display for, that flat screens can't do.

    I'm glad to give it. It's an intrepid effort (oh, I love a good pun!). I must say, Nick, that I enjoyed your performance. You gave your lines the right amount of bite without having them come across as pure vitriol, which those lines in another person's hands could've been easily done.

    I'm always cut off at the climax ... oh, wait, that doesn't sound right.

    But thank you for seeking out my feedback. I'm happy to have given it.

    Dennis, I'm very happy and grateful that I've been one of the first to see the rough cut. This is going to be a hoot. And I'd love to see you guys be able to take what you've done and use it to produce more, either POLARIS or another venture.

    But most of all, I can't wait to see the finished edit!

    Almost a Lights of Zetar vibe going on there.

    Puts me in mind of a waterfall of light. What is it?

    Wait ... what did I spoil, oh man of many ranks?

    Or was that just a request to Maurice about his answer?

    I took it as a general request in case any of the production team let something slip.

    What Deckerd said. So far the team has kept things pretty well under wraps, revealing only the rough outlines of the premise, which is great. I'm looking forward to this project.

    Whatever that scene is, it looks like it could be important. :)

    That's a great image.

    People spending 150 million dollars to make a movie that everyone in the world is trying to find out about need to worry about "spoilers." We welcome most any useful attention we get. ;)

    What it is: ain't telling. For all you know it's their 2Xth century Xmas lights. ;)

    Looks like the Krell of the Polaris universe need to go on a diet! ;)

    The arches in that concept render remind me of those depicted in "Forbidden Planet", only much wider.

    Sincerely,

    Bill

    LOL. The irony is that those "arches" aren't based on FP at all, but an actual building.

    Well, the rows of arches going off into the distance reinforce the "Krell" thing a bit - they were an experiment, and I'm leaning away from them now.

    I'd consider making the openings on each side slope down so that you have to walk UP into the room.
