Well, I took 4 days to visit my family in Florida. My god sons live in Orlando, and my Mom, Dad and nephews live 90 minutes away in Tampa. So Friday and Monday I was flying. Saturday/Sunday I was with my godsons. That means I got a lot of emails done Friday and Monday and almost nothing done Saturday/Sunday, as 9 year old boys are a hand full! Especially when they love you, and haven’t seen you in 4 months. There are Lego’s to build and games to play and such.
Sadly, my father, who recently turned 80, was sick and so I had to cancel my trip to see him and my Mom. But I will be back for Thanksgiving and look forward to seeing my nephews (who are 23 & 24) then. OK, enough of me! What is up with Axanar?
Well, here is an update.
Dean has hired a painter to begin finishing the sets that have been built (bridge, transporter, turbolift). This is a big step forward towards having finished sets!
Meanwhile, Dean and Dominic finished the basic Klingon Consoles and are moving onto the Captain’s quarters.
Curtis Short, our Studio Manager, has been sourcing video monitors for the bridge and got us a smoking deal at $ 17 a piece! Curtis is the man when it comes to getting things cheap. He is a total bulldog and will not stop till he saves every last dime!
Rob has started working full time as of October 15th and so a lot is happening now. Rob and Tobias have been exchanging dozens of emails every day to get the animatics, basically the pre-visualization) down.
April has been tracking down fabric samples and Diana and I have been reviewing them. We have a new point of contact at our costume fabricator, the CEO, and things are moving on the Starfleet costumes. Meanwhile, pattern making is about to start on Klingon costumes. We have been trying to settle on fabrics, and we think we have some great options.
Curtis has been busting his butt and now has all the pieces in place for our massive 40′ x 60′ green screen. In addition, electricians have finished their work on the studio’s second floor offices, which Curtis says will be ready for occupancy by month’s end. Good! because we are tired of having our desks in the lobby! 🙂
UPDATED ANNUAL REPORT COMING!
Finally, I have been working to get an updated Axanar annual report out. This new report is over 20 pages of info on everything that has happened from prelude to Axanar up till 7/31/15. It includes updated financials on both Prelude and Axanar Kickstarters.
OK, more coming, so stay tuned!
