THANK YOU ALL! We reached our goal in 24 hours!
What it costs.
The budget for this shoot includes lighting, camera, and equipment rental, travel, hotels, catering, costumes, props, production design and stage rental costs. Plus a % set aside for perks and perk delivery.
What we will shoot:
Every Axanar shoot has four units working on it.
1) Production – The unit making the film.
2) Behind The Scenes – The unit producing the behind the interviews for the Blu-ray.
3) Audio Drama – The unit producing the full length audio drama, which records the actors in a studio.
4) Live Stream – Each shoot has a team of producers and hosts, live streaming each shoot to give donors a true “Behind the scenes” experience.
Axanar is the Star Trek we all want.
Axanar is a Star Trek that honors canon, believes in the principles that Gene Roddenberry built TOS on and looks like it belongs in the TOS timeline. It is written with characters you love, and a story you want to hear.
Based on our settlement with CBS, we get to make two 15 minute episodes, which is perfect to tell the story of the Battle of Axanar. We took the full length movie script and turned it into two more episodes in The Four Years War documentary. So fans will get 30 minutes of kick ass Star Trek, the kind of Star trek that we all grew up on.
Plus, we are making a full length audio drama of the full movie script and will release that with an illustrated script. So fans will get to see and hear, what the full Axanar movie would have been like.
The way we are doing this is by breaking Axanar up into five distinct “shoots”. The first happened October 4-6th in Atalnta. The next was a one day shoot in Atlanta this past December.
Now we have a one day shoot in Atlanta March 14th, and then we will have a 2 day shoot in Los Angeles, where we will shoot all Alien makeup (Klingons, Andorians and Vulcans). Finally, we will have a one day location shoot in Los Angeles at Starfleet HQ.
Thank you for your support!
