Another potential Star Trek fan film project submission has turned up over the weekend on crowdfunding website Kickstarter. Star Trek: First Frontier intends to show the first live-action appearance of Captain Robert April of the newly-created starship Enterprise. First time director and scriptwriter Kenny Smith hopes to raise 150 000$ thru this Kickstarter and get the feature released by fall of 2016. His film's main assets would be practical ship miniatures in lieu of CG models, casting SAG actors instead of amateurs, music by an actual orchestra rather than the usual one-man with a synthesizer gig, and an experienced Hollywood VFX Professional is already on board. So far he's already raised over 11000$, despite having no experienced director at the helm (believe me, that makes all the difference in the world, just ask Alec Peters), an insanely short pre-production period in his planning (2 months? I've worked on shows that were a lot less ambitious than this and we needed 6 months minimum), and no real plot details to speak of. But you can't say he lacks enthusiasm for his project. I wish him luck!
