Today we continued our move to our new office space upstairs while the rigging team was sinatlling our lighting grid on the sound stage. Now our green screen is HUGE (as Donald Trump would say). It is 55′ x 32′ x 21′ with a five foot radius, making it one of the biggest in the valley. The lightning grid will cover over 1/4 of the sound stage area and allow us to put any set, including the bridge, under the grid, making shooting faster and easier.
This really makes the sound stage the best fan film sound stage in the country. Now both Star Trek: New Voyages and Star Trek: Continues each have full time 10,000sf+ facilities with standing sets. Having worked on the New Voyages sound stage (which I actually was responsible for finding for James Cawley) and having been on the Farragut/STC sets, I can say that both are nice. But neither facility is as large or flexible as ours.
So if all goes well, we will be making Star Trek fans films for a long time. Not just Axanar, but others as well, and hopefully other fan films will come use our facility.
