"Prelude to Axanar" is a short film that will lead into, and act as a primer to, the feature length "Axanar".
Ladies and gentlemen I have just had this brought to my attention:
Start Trek Prelude to Axanar
PLEASE NOTE: We reached our $50,000 stretch goal! We are fully funded the way we need to be to execute Prelude to Axanar. We now have a $60,000 stretch goal!
Prelude to Axanar is a short film that will give viewers a historical look at the events leading up to the Battle of Axanar, the central event of the film Axanar, to be filmed later this year. Shot like a History Channel special, Prelude to Axanar will be Star Trek like you have never seen it before, showing the central characters of Axanargiving both a historical and personal account of the war. How did Starfleet build its fleet? How did they hold off a Klingon fleet that had been conquering star systems for centuries? What role did the various founding planets play in Starfleet? Why were the Constitution class ships so important to Starfleet? How did Garth of Izar come to be regarded as the greatest Starfleet Captain of his time?
This Kickstarter is for Prelude to Axanar, which we will film at the beginning of May. The Kickstarter for Prelude will pay for the actors, the make-up, visual effects and actual filming costs. The resulting film will be about 20 minutes and also produce about half a dozen vignettes of the characters talking about different subjects.
Prelude to Axanar will then allow us to launch into Axanar having proven our ability to deliver professional quality Star Trek. There will be a subsequent Kickstarter for the feature-length "Axanar".
Thought that since many of us love Star Trek this might be a good place for a public service announcement.
