Saturday, May 23rd – Today Diana and I had Brunch with Axanar Editor Robert Burnett. Rob will be taking over the directing duties of our first scene we are filming for Axanar. As many of you know, Rob is the writer/director of Free Enterprise, the classic Star trek geek movie. Rob has directed TV as well and been a producer on numerous movies. Rob is also one of the candidates for the directing job for Axanar, so this shoot will be a good test for him.
While it is the first day of the Memorial Day weekend, there is work to do, so I spent time working with the Art Department, getting them all up to speed on deliverables. This includes setting the design style for the bridge monitors. We have some great artists working on these designs.
Terry McIntosh is handling the actual hardware for the monitors, which is quite a chore. But he is our tech guru and has been consulting with people who do that thing for a living, so he feels good about it.
Working all weekend, so more updates tomorrow!
