Thanks to both of you. I was only half joking about "opening my records" - To keep track of what I write about I have been keeping records in an Excel spreadsheet which I imported into Access to turn into a report. Unfortunately my latest updates didn't come through so I had to add them by hand last night straight into Blogger! I can honestly say I did a year's work last night! I worked straight through from 2009 to 2010!
It doesn't have the same breadth of material as your ST Reviewed , Barb, but I have been going into detail by recording the producer, director, writer and I have a separate sheet (or table in Access) for performers so in theory I could do an IMDB for fan productions online.
I say in theory because it would be a full time job to keep it up to date and I'm only doing annual updates. I have an audio darama planned for Jan - April and then I'll be free to try my hand at something I've been wanting to try since I saw E: TCW - an Enterprise Machinima!
Back to the five fan films ... you'll never guess which they are!!!
Two unrelated thoughts:
1) Machinima... yech! I wish I could find a good excuse to exclude those from fan films and trade them for audio! I confess I am watching the rest of the game runout on Star Trek: A Final Unity. It's somewhat boring, but interesting enough that I want to know what happens.
2) I'm interested in your take on Incident on Beta 9
, a Klingon-centric Fan Film in the Multiverse Crisis series. Fan Film Fridays will review it in the next month or two. Randy Hall was delighted by it. I consider you more Klingon-centric (can't imagine why... ha ha) and I'd like to hear what you think. It was shot in 2002, before Enterprise tackled the subject of why Klingons look different in TOS than in TNG and other series.
Concerning your comments about listing... with the work you just did, I hope you have just a tiny taste of why I felt I had to limit what my website covered. I see a lot of Trek websites that do a lot for six months and then aren't touched for years. I'd like to keep mine to a level in which I could actually keep it up over the long term. As it is, I've added two groups this week working on new fan films, and a few new shorts and parodies. Not enough for a Headline, but still, work. On top of that, a friend sent me a novel he wrote to read. And I've exchange e-mails with a fan film group inside the PRC who can't see my website because it's censored.
I pass the Chinese embassy to the UN often. I have to admit I've been tempted to walk in there and just yell at them for censoring my Star Trek Fan Film website. Technically, though, it's Chinese soil and they could arrest me. Not an attractive idea. Still, I'm very frustrated about it.
