    I have good news, the Captain Pike film will be released next year!!!! :beer:

    The bad news is that it is a entirely different fan production to the one being discussed here!

    Would the changes really have to be any more serious than Renegades: Requiem? Dub over the names and Trek-centric stuff, CG out the insignia, redo all exterior ship shots. I only suggest it because it's been done before, and recently.

    Whilst in the fundraising trailer they used CGI for the bridge shots, I understand that they built practical sets for the actual filming, no green screens, which could be a problem. I don't know if things like uniforms or Spock's pointed ears could be changed in post. I suppose with enough money anything is possible.

    So Phillip, this new Captain Pike has NOTHING to do with the previous one?

    Yes, that right. It is from the makers of the aborted Star Trek fan production 'Star Trek Begins'

    Then I'm back to my original position that the CAPTAIN PIKE guys should put out Part 1 and show us what they can do.

    I agree, if they are trying to work with CBS on what they can put out, thats not going happen.

    The simple fact is Fan Films are under assault. We need to just face that reality. No matter how you fall on the Axanar debate, weather you feel the CBS crack down was justified in whole or in part.

    We live in a different world now.

    So unless Trek Fandom comes to terms with that fact, unless we becomes comfortable with this new reality, the reality of a straight jacket existence of restrictive 30 minute Trek Epics .. otherwise ... we need to say goodbye to the dream of Star Trek fan films, videos, fan audio adventures and the like.

    I know it is not fair, I know it is not what we would want to do .. I know it is not what other franchises do .. but that is what we need to do

    That .. or decide what we want to do about the state between the IP holder and the active fandom community, that frankly gives the IP it's value..

    All this stuff has already been discussed ad nauseum.

    I just hope to see some kind of Captain Pike production at some point.

    Glad to see you hold a different opinion. Sharing of views, what ever they be is the purpose of a forum.

    On this issue however, I think you are illustrating my point.

    We will not see this Captain Pike film materialize because of the current state of fan film.

    Actually, Potemkin Pictures doesn't find them restrictive at all. We're pretty much doing the same thing that we've been doing for the past seven years. We tell a story in the way that we want. The guidelines haven't restricted fan films in any way that I can discern. Laying the inability of any given fan film creative team to produce a fan film on the altar of the guidelines is simply giving that group an excuse not to produce what was promised. I'm not saying that's the case with this particular production, but I think it's time to put up or shut up.

    No, fan films aren't 'under assault'. For Star Trek - the IP RIGHTS HOLDER graciously put out some rules (when hounded and asked to do so repeatedly by a Mr. Alec Peters).

    CBS/Paramount would be fully within their right to say - "No fan films, PERIOD." - they didn't do that; and as MANY have shown you CAN make an interesting Star Trek based fan film, with interesting characters and plots that FULLY COMPLY with said guidelines.

    Seeing that STC ended itself gracefully, and Captain Pike is a (very) limited 3 part run anyways, and limited Kickstarters are not against the "guidelines," and the guidelines themselves are just *suggestions*..... and beloved fanfilms have been released in partial form before (tressarian)...I agree wholeheartedly with Potemkin Productions, in that Captain Pike needs to release what it has and show us what they can do. If they are that good, get some private donations and finish it up. If they do something wrong, CBS will let them know, and they can proceed accordingly. If this has already happened, then they at least owe their fans and doners that explanation.

    Nope.
    Yeah. We're in one where the rules are clear where before they were muddy.
    You do realize of course that the sector of fandom that watches—let alone makes—these things is a teeny tiny percentage of the whole and not statistically important except as noisemakers.
    Don't even try to make a Lost In Space fanfilm. You want to see restrictive, try them.
    Again, small subsection of fandom without clout that would make a difference.

    Is this officially DOA now? I saw a guy on their Facebook page say he recently donated...…...and it was returned to him saying "company folded last year...….."

    I think that Facebook post answered your question pretty clearly.

    The admins of the Facebook page have not posted public comment on the status of the project, though.
