Bridge 6.3.15.4

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015

I flew home today after 3 days with my godsons and family in Florida.  I love being with them all, but it always means I fall behind with work.  Instead of sleeping on the plane, which I really needed to do, I used the in-flight wifi and worked for the entire 5 hours.  I did watch “Wild Card” with Jason Statham (Pretty typical Statham fare) and Jupiter Ascending (ugh, don’t get me started) as background while I worked.

6.3.15 Meeting

Alec, Milton Santiago, Rob Burnett

When I got home at 1, I had to prep for a meeting with Rob Burnett, who is directing the scene we shoot next week, and Milton Santiago, the DP.  We had an awesome 2 hour meeting, and I have to say, Rob and Milton were really well prepared.  The shoot is a page and a half, and will be the first Axanar footage we shoot.  It is basically a dry run for everyone and everything.  More to come on this…

Finally the bridge is now 360 degrees!  Today the viewscreen was finished and here are some photos.

    Who would have thought that USB board would still the preferred starship construction material in the 23rd century?

      Sorry,that would be OSB for ( oriented strand board.) But just watched “Prelude to Axanar” and as a life long trek fan, I loved it. I am amazed at all the trek projects these days. Thanks to all who made this project happen.

  • Ben Sarles says:

    How big was the main screen on the TOS Enterprise? It always seemed like it took up a quarter of the bridge walls. I know this ship comes in some time between the NX-01 and Constitution class, I was just wondering for comparison sake.

    • EC Henry says:

      It looks like it’s exactly the same size as the TOS screen, as I think they’re building this set to TOS specs (plus the door added in the animated series).

  • Robert flatters says:

    view screen could be slightly bigger, but apart from that, great looking great

  • BL says:

    This is going to look awesome soon!

  • Eric says:

    Is Rob directing Axanar now?

  • Scott Voigt says:

    I think that was a little Hollywood perspective when it “appeared” that the view screen was bigger. If you do a pull back it will look this size, but most of the time they wanted to show you something on the view screen, it was zoomed in.
