    Would Tobias not have kept a copy of his own work that he could simply give to Alec or am I missing something?

    Bingo.........which maybe makes me think he burned a bridge with Tobias as well as just about everyone else from Prelude.

    So what new scam Alec will come up with when he can't get $4K a month through Patreon?

    Eventually I foresee him being overcome by the tsunami of his own making. There’s only so much running he can do to stay in front of his inevitable curtain-draw. If he is simply unable to fork out the rather steep $4K per month bill, he will be quickly sunk ... permanently.

    Reminds me of the penultimate scene in Prometheus where Vickers was inexplicably incapable of getting out of the way of the rolling Engineers’ vessel that eventually crushed her. AP’s situation reminds me quite vividly of that particular scene, and both showing the abject stupidity of they who are about to be crushed.

    Then again, he does seem to be one of those who can snake their way through the kind of situation that would wreck most normal mortals. Even he, I would think, would eventually run out of lives with no more coins to put in the machine to respawn.

    Has anyone looked into the actual cost of the space AP occupies? It can't be hard to find out what the rent is on that warehouse. From there one could extrapolate the electric bill, and stuff like that.

    Surely it doesn't cost $4K/mo for that dump. ;)

    I really think he's just trying to generate income to maintain his lifestyle.

    WHERE'S THE MOVIE, ALEC? :razz:

    Thanks for clarifying. That was mentioned earlier in the thread when there was a link posted to the large file with the WIP to finished shots but I assumed that there would have been more. I'd think that if he is still on good terms with Tobias (is he?) that he'd be able to provide the shots again. Since Tobias is reportedly a big trek fan and a professional, I doubt he'd just up and delete them but that's pure conjecture on my part admittedly. I suppose Alec could just download RMB's posted footage just like the rest of us and try to piece it together again humpty dumpty style.

    And the $4000 a month is NOT to film anything........just to pay the bills. IF you want a MOVIE then that will be MORE cash please.

    Yeah---you ain't getting a refund...this is a monthly allotment. I won't pay CBS $6.00, but let me send Alec $50 a month..........:brickwall:

    Isn't posting links like this technically against board rules?
