Star Trek Wars Launches Second Kickstarter Campaign With New Rewards

Star Trek Wars

The folks who brought us the excellent "Steven Spielberg and the Return to Film School" video are lending their vast talents to bring two of my favourite franchises together, Star Wars and Star Trek.  It's called Star Trek Wars and it's another short movie where as they say, "no other fan has gone before."  Here's the film synopsis:

Star Trek Wars
"After 40 years, George Lucas has retired from Star Wars but is having difficulty letting go. Meanwhile, Star Trek director J.J. Abrams, is cracking under the pressure of carrying on the legacy of Star Wars VII. As the rivalry builds between these moguls of space film history, the battle of Star Trek vs Star Wars will finally be decided once and for all."

Now the first part of their Kickstarter campaign got them enough money to film the movie in April and May over six days.  The project saw them collaborate with 150 filmmakers, actors, and artists.  They've also gone as far as to film the project in glorious 4K.

Now they've launched a second campaign and it's a relatively small one too.  They need $2500 and here's what they want to do with the extra money:

  • Create top-of-the-line Special Effects
  • Design a professional Sound Mix and Effects
  • Compose an Original Score which pays homage to the music of both franchises
  • Create a fully illustrated poster in the style of classic Star Wars/Trek posters
  • Submit to film festivals across the country
  • Release the film on-line FOR FREE in December 2015 to be enjoyed by all!
  • Deliver the film to George Lucas, JJ Abrams, Kathleen Kennedy, and Gene Roddenberry's family as a thank-you to their lifetimes of work 
  • Animate a fantastic Space Battle credits sequence!

Star Trek Wars

As with all Kickstarter campaigns there are rewards if you make a pledge.  From $5 you will get a personal thank you video.  Other rewards range from exclusive SDCC merchandise from as little as $25 all the way up to becoming an executive producer of the movie and getting an IMDB entry.

I can't wait to watch this in December, it's going to be a blast.  Head over to their Kickstarter page now and read more on the movie and the other rewards on offer.

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
