Yorktown: A Time to Heal (Sulu fan film)
« on: June 07, 2011, 10:58:36 am »
Production on "Yorktown: A Time to Heal" (Stan Woo's classic fan film from the 1980s) is back under way! The film stars George Takei as Sulu, and James Shigeta as Admiral Nogura. We felt it was time to start a new thread that concentrates on the film's ongoing development, that will help keep everyone up to date on the film's progress.



This week, we posted our new VFX teaser trailer, which shows some of the new CGI that will be going into the film. The original film is in the process of being transfered, and we aim to have a final edit done in 2012. We have a few new scenes that need to be filmed, which will be spliced into the existing film, and made to match with the original footage. The VFX teaser trailer can be seen on Youtube at http://youtu.be/mswALTOF5Hg

At the same time, a terrorist group called S.H.A.R.K. discover the drone's location, and plot to steal the device and use it for their own nefarious means.

Roland Baron is a friend of mine from some 3D art forums I frequent, so I saw the ship as he was putting it together and the teaser trailer that he did.  Both are fantastic (but that's typical for Roland.)  It's great that you guys are going to be able to finish the film after all this time.  That's gotta feel good, even if it does come 24 years late.  It's better late than never.  I can't wait to see it.  ;D

Roland Baron has done an amazing job. His work is simply outstanding. We have a few ships that will be appearing in the film that are based on designs by Andrew Probert, and Roland will be doing all of the CGI & Rendering.

Here are three new shots of the USS Yorktown, as she appears at the beginning of the fan film. This is how the ship looks before it is given a refit.





...and this is the ship after she receives a refit in the film:

Yeah, Roland is a great guy and one of the best artists I know.  He did an awesome job interpreting Andrew's sketch.  ;D

The VFX trailer is really cool! The music is very nice. I`m impressed.

I see your base of operations is Toronto! I live in the GTA. Let me know if there`s anything I can do to help. I`m a communications professional, so I have skills in marketing and promotion, copy writing and social media engagement. I also have a radio voice if that would be helpful. It looks like you`re giving the original work a very thorough post-production workover and modernization. I`m very excited by what the result will be.

Those are some great pictures.  I see you guys included the character Lori Ciana from the Lost Years books, that's cool.  What happened to the phyiscal model?  Was it destroyed or lost or what?  Or does it still exist in someone's garage or basement?
