Sunday, May 25th – Memorial Day is just one more day working here at Axanar. But since we are working on Star Trek, no one is complaining!
Rob Burnett came by today and we talked Art Department. The work the team is doing is quite extraordinary! Right now Alexander Richardson, Lee Quessenberry and Aaron Harvey are working on potential designs for the eye level monitors on the bridge. We are at the point where we are trying to come up with a design aesthetic for these.
Also, Alexander has submitted some cool design concepts for the actual controls. We are moving away from the “jelly bean” gels and towards touch screens. And if you tell me that that is too advanced for TOS, I will tell you that we have touch screens NOW, so that isn’t a winning argument. Being slavish to a 50 year old vision of the future is ridiculous and just bad art direction. We won’t look like TNG, but we will look like a different version of TOS.
Then Rob and I re-recorded my commentary for the Prelude to Axanar Blu-ray. Rob wasn’t happy with the last one so we had to do it again. It was the last piece of the puzzle and so it is off to Josh to author (compile) the master. Then printing!
