The bridge build continues!!!
Dean took this photo today. The bridge consoles are built up to Spock’s station. Very exciting!
In other news, I got sick yesterday, some stomach bug which laid me out last night, so I worked from home today. Today was spent coordinating with all the department heads on what work they have been waiting on and getting that work assigned.
Part of the day I spent on finding our new director. This included chatting with Charlie Lauzrika and Rob Burnett, both of whom are close friends and have directed features. This time around, finding a director who has directed a feature and knows the immense amount of work it takes is really important. We actually discussed both LeVar Burton and Jonathan Frakes, but LeVar just took on the role of Executive Producer of Roots and Frakes is an in-demand TV series director. We could never get the amount of work we need out of either, even if we could get them interested in Axanar.
Finding the right director is very situational, meaning we need a Director who can bring to Axanar the specific things Axanar needs. And this includes 1) A good knowledge of Star Trek 2) A strong work ethic 3) A desire to work on THIS project.
We think we will make a good choice. And thanks to everyone for your continued faith!
