    Nice Opener!

    I'm a bit of a Klingon Fan myself :-)

    Thanks, guys!

    We're hoping to release "Battlecruiser Kupok" fairly soon.

    Love seeing your guy's set construction progress on facebook! Curious how you guys are doing the view screen, will you guys be doing like a CGI set extension similar to how the Renegades did with the Archer view screen, or will you guys be building a view screen over what is in the latest picture green screen block?

    Thanks for asking!

    For Studio 2, we painted the entire wall parrot green. For Studio 3, we're going back to a more conventional viewgreen with a 4x8 parrot green screen. We've yet to add the trim, and we're making it so that we can take the screen down and open the windows behind it and film through them. This will open up more space for our cameras to get that shot from the front of the bridge that was lacking since the days of Studio 1.

    In addition, with three starship-based series, we've got three bridge configurations to deal with, and I think the results will be generally pretty pleasing to the audience.

    Thanks! The second part of it is now on-line. Jonathan Lane did a great job with it.

    It's been a hectic two months as Project: Potemkin transitions into Potemkin Pictures. Our primary series, Project: Potemkin, will be ending in April 2016. There are only 6 vignettes and 1 episode remaining on the schedule. The VFX for the episode are rather extensive, and the episode has been delayed until late December 2015. The remaining vignettes will be released roughly every three weeks thereafter.

    Filming has already begun on Starship Tristan, a series set aboard a colony support ship. The new cast is coming together very well. We're filming a few introductory vignettes that will be released as they become ready, but the opening episode, "Between Two Worlds," is scheduled for a late May 2016 release.

    Here's a collage of our cast and crew:

    Another production, Starship Deimos, is set aboard a patrol ship protecting the Federation's interests in the "Back Forty-ish." Filming of the first full-length episode will take place this weekend.

    The cast of Deimos:

    Our remaining two productions, Battlecruiser Kupok and Starship Endeavour, will begin preproduction in the coming months.

    Stay tuned for more developments...

    Our heartiest congratulations to Potemkin Story Editor and Writer David Eversole. David has won the Ithaca College Scriptwriting Competition - Rod Serling Conference! David was one of five finalists, and his work was chosen by Carol Serling herself! Congratulations, David, on this well deserved honor!

    Thank you, guys. At 51, not much takes my breath away, but being mentioned in the same breath as Rod Serling, no matter the reason, certainly does.

    Richly deserved. Heartiest congratulations, David. And you can colour me just a *tad* jealous. :)

    Work continues on Project: Potemkin's final season. Our next episode, "The Last Child," will be 20-25 minutes long, and writer/producer David A. MacKenzie is closely supervising the post-production. We're hoping for a release by the end of the month, but the middle of January is probably more likely. More details as they become available...

    However, two vignettes are coming soon:

    Starship Deimos' "The Lucky One" and Starship Tristan's "Moving Day" are both slated for December releases. We'll be sure and post here when they become available!

    Potemkin Pictures is continuing to work on the VFX for "The Last Child." As a 20-25 minute episode, it's requiring a lot of our VFX artists. If anyone would be interested in helping out pro bono, we'd welcome the help!
