    The amount of time spent on it, doesn't change the fact the Peters is creepy as fuck, and a horrible actor on top of it.

    It would appear that acting lessons were not included in his misc. expenses.

    Lessons from no less than Richard Hatch, rest his soul.

    With all due respect to the late Mr. Hatch, that's not much of an endorsement of his teaching technique.

    Sometimes there are bad students. :shrug:

    Besides, AP’s planet-sized ego was probably whispering into his psyche that he knows more about acting anyway, ignoring what Hatch was trying to teach him. I think that most likely, actually.

    Yeah, but I didn't want to be the one to point that out. :techman:

    Exactly. Axanar started as something I was genuinely interested in and it started in to the strangest dumpster fire that doesn't ever quit. I can't really look away but there is nothing about how this project was handled that inspires any confidence.

    And most of the fed ship designs are from ST09, they just gave them new nacelles and removed the bridge windows.

    Late to the party but I just saw the 2020 teaser trailer from July. "Winner of 46 film festival awards [...] The final two instalments of the Axanar legacy".

    Yeah, oy. I have a friend who's an indie filmmaker (not on the BBS). His film is making the rounds of the festival circuit. He pays his own way. He wins some stuff. He loses some stuff. His film was an official selection of the 2019 Golden State Film Festival with a screening at Grauman's Chinese Theatre (which I think has been renamed).

    I have never seen him put his hand out for $. He promotes his film, of course. And yes, he talks about it a lot. But I have never, ever seen him ask for money.

    We interrupt this thread for a pedantic update: Grauman's is now known as TCL Chinese Theatres. TCL (The Creative Life) is a Chinese electronics manufacturer. The 10 year naming agreement started in 2013. I gather that the original Chinese Theatre has been renovated and is the centerpiece of a movie complex. Now back to our regular scheduled programming....

    FWIW, it was also called Mann's Chinese Theater for many years.

    Thank you. I saw Algis (my pal) refer to it both ways. You have now touched my overly pedantic heart.

    “Pedantic” sounds better than “man’splainin”:D

    Tommy Wiseau took an acting class, too.

    Wow, one acting class. I guess all of those people who spend their whole lives mastering the art have been wasting their time when all it takes is one class to make you worthy of being the lead actor in a movie.
