Whats the status of the Fan Film Awards proposal? whats going on with it

Are we still interested in putting the idea into reality?
I think we should still investigate the Fan Film Awards because of the fun nature it implied for example everybody in it could be a winner and not have it like the Oscars when one film walks off with a large slice of the awards and the rest come away empty handed
I've also had a thought that down the track maybe we could actually do an amateur Sci-Fi film awards like you know original films done at home on standard cameras and very limited material.........help build up Science Fiction and have fun at the same time, just a very small thought at the moment while filling in some time

The hardest thing would be how on Earth can people vote fairly, it might have to take a few dozen threads of polls but it can be achievable but then again everybody would know who comes where so it has to be some sort of a secret ballot

It may be my paranoia taking over, but why do I have the feeling that you're refering to me?

Trekzone is back from the twilight zone.
I am happy to help out.
I'm thinking that if we made it big enough, and had businesses recognise the signifigance of this, we could have a world wide voting panel (of everyone on TU & SciFi Studios, it'd be a recruitment drive as well - as you'd have to be a member to vote) that would decide the awards.
We could then film it either here in Perth, or over east - wherever, edit it and send it to the States, air it here in Oz and stream it on the web. DVD sales etc...
I would be happy to produce, edit and host this awards night, featuring science fiction and fantasy short films, films, documentaries, fan films, parodies etc...
EDIT - Just speaking with Kirok re: my idea. I understand it is a "faux" night, but still why not? Make it gala, give it hype, get scifi promotion it deserves, if we make a big enough noise, commercial stations WILL take an interest and say - "oh, there are people out there!"
Are we interested in this idea, you can refine it, edit it and send me back to the set of Cast Away if you like...

Somehow we got to make it a secret ballot, polls here always seem to have the totals and pecentage of votes visible and we can't have that i for one if i had a production wouldn't want to see say NV get 1000 votes and mine only get 12 or so it would be very disheartening even though this is for fun you would want to make a contest out of the fun

Then again we did think of making our own fan film montage after the failure of our previous effort after it got a point and gone no further
Anyhow current plan i have is do a multi catagory sub thread whether people can log in their preference like best fan film and character, special effects etc and then we tally them up and make a presentation of some form
Also we not only stop at film entries but go into written stories and audio as well, so this can be Trekunited's version of the Oscars with the Grammy's as well as the writing prize all into one
I'll think of more after i snack
