Fan Film Friday – SMALL ACCESS founder JONATHAN LANE (me) featured on a controversial episode of the TREKZONE SPOTLIGHT!

By September 2, 2016 Blog, Fan Films 2 Comments

It seems I’m kicking up quite a bit of controversy…and not just from CBS and Paramount!

If you’re curious why this interview was “controversial,” read this blog entry on FAN FILM FACTOR.  During the 45-minute grilling, I address several hard-hitting questions about the SMALL ACCESS campaign and our letter-writing effort to try to convince CBS and Paramount to revise the fan film guidelines and make them less restrictive.

The interview also addresses the confusion and misinformation currently circulating about whether Axanar is behind the SMALL ACCESS campaign…which it is not.  While I happily support Axanar and write this fun blog on the Axanar website, I’m way too busy with FAN FILM FACTOR and SMALL ACCESS to run everything past Alec Peters, and he’s way too busy to micromanage me.  So we’re two ships in the same fleet fighting the same enemy, but Alec has his battles, and I’ve got mine.

Anyway, here’s the full interview for your viewing pleasure.  Let me know what you think…



  • Any signs of a response yet to the Focus Group Report mail in effort ?

    Keep up the good work.

  • Jonathan Lane says:

    It’s only been about 3-4 weeks, and I really expect this process to take months…possibly even until after Discovery airs and subscriber numbers come in. So no, I haven’t heard anything personally, but I don’t consider that unexpected or ominous. However, we definitely need more packets mailed to the executives. We already have 108 packets sent…which is a great start. Can we DOUBLE that number? Spread the word and let’s find out!
