Randy, you ask a fair question. I believe I answered it in my (sorry) lengthy reply a couple days ago. I also answered it in an essay last year. Here's where I have trouble with what you've observed. First, each of the questions you put to me with regard to what AxaMonitor's endgame is assume that I bear some personal animus toward Alec Peters that can only be sated by destroying him in some way. That's completely unfair because zero of my work can be demonstrated to signal that kind of emotional attachment. I have only conducted myself professionally and civilly this entire time. The same cannot be said of Peters or Lane. What would I hope my legacy to be, you ask? I would hope it is this: That anyone who tries to take advantage of eager fans be held accountable for delivering what they promise, or to take responsibility for what had gone wrong, instead of always blaming someone else. That Alec Peters' having wasted close to $2 million without producing anything be remembered as an object lesson in how *not* to produce a fan film. That if Axanar is ever made its finances would be truly open and accountable. I understand, Randy, also why you might be sick of hearing about all this and that we should move on, and that so few fan filmmakers chime in publicly on this topic, but I ask you to consider this: "Moving on" shouldn't mean ignoring that fan films were used to raise so much money to support commercial ventures far beyond simply delivering donors their promised film. "Moving on" shouldn't mean that Peters and Lane's shouldn't get a pass for their unceasing ad hominem attacks against those with legitimate questions to ask. Where is your disgust for their using such attacks as a means to continue to raise money from fans to pay the rent for Peters' warehouse? Where is your disgust for that behavior, or it just reserved for the more ardent critics on this board? Why don't we hear that expressed in Axanar forums? Might it be because you know that your comments would be both attacked and deleted? "Moving on" shouldn't mean people lending their credibility to someone like Peters by making public appearances alongside him as if all is forgiven. "Moving on" shouldn't mean only fan filmmakers are entitled to air their opinion about the Axanar debacle. Most of the ones I know continue to keep a low profile because they know the wisdom of not poking the bear when playing with the bear's intellectual property. And as the apparent "chief hater," I was a fan filmmaker. I made a lot of them, among them some of the most heralded and honored. A key part of my motivation, and I've stated this from the beginning, stemmed from my concern over the harm Axanar was bringing down upon all fan films. My own career as a professional filmmaker was born from my involvement for many years in producing fan films. The threat posed by the Axanar lawsuit imperiled other people from being able to enjoy the same experience. And I've been transparent about that from Day 1. So if you want to know what my emotional motivation is, you can start there.
