The big news today was our beginning to work with a technology provider to get much needed hardware for our production shoot. Bing Bailey, who is our DIT (Digital Ingest Technician), Colorist and co-editor, is a technology pro. Really one of the few guys I know who balances his left and right brains brilliantly. Well, we were approached by a major technology hardware vendor who wants to work with us, and Bing came up with a list of over $ 15,000 worth of technology we need and we are in the process of negotiating a deal to get this equipment for free.
Now a days with filming being digital, you don’t need to spend a ton on 35mm film stock. But you do need memory cards, hard drives and more to store it all on. And these cost money!
So keep your fingers crossed and we may well get another big chunk of donations!
Also, we are working away on the Klingon bridge, which includes securing the digital Klingon bridge from Adam “Mojo” Liebowitz. The photo above is all digital! It is a complete model so we can use it to green screen our bridge in the background of practical foreground elements like the Captain’s chair and consoles.
