U.S.S. Potemkin - NCC-1711
Our episodes focus on science fiction as well as action-adventure, humor and drama. Each production varies in its length; we don't restrict ourselves by following a typical four-act television format. Instead, our writers think outside the box. We've produced many vignettes (ranging from 6 to 15 mins), a half-hour episode, and even a full-length episode. Filming takes place in various locations in Southwest Georgia in order to take advantage of the wide variety of unique locations throughout the region. In addition to the studio we've built in Albany, Georgia, we've filmed on a river front in Lee County, in the historic Radium Springs Gardens in Dougherty County, in downtown Americus, and we're looking at other exciting, unique locations throughout the region.
All of this helps make Project: Potemkin a unique Star Trek fan film series!
Star Trek ~ Project: Potemkin "Duty Bound" S02-A Now On-Line!
On February 18th 2014, Project: Potemkin released the first vignette of its second season of productions. "Duty Bound" was written by David Eversole and was directed by Bill Mackenzie.
This production stars Jeffrey Green as Captain Alec Grigory, Doug Harper as Helmsman Mike Delaney, Hannah E. Ruiz as Tactical Officer Doreen Spampinato, Chris Coleman as Engineer Drew Wallace, Jason Ryan Wallace as Communications Officer Sonaj, Richard Thornton as Security Chief Darrell Frazier, and introduces Sara Higgins Mackenzie to the regular cast as Yeoman Ziandra Yanari. It features Kim Landers as Navigator LeeAnn Feltman and Linda Marcusky as Science Officer Anne Devon.
The VFX for this episode are truly extraordinary. Mark Berge provided the space-based VFX, mostly ship-to-ship combat between the Orions and the Potemkin. This marks the first time that the Potemkin has faced battle! Equally exciting were the panel animations crafted John Northam for the bridge scenes which truly came alive for the viewers. This is probably the best panel animation work we've seen before! Both Mark and John's contributions helped make this a very special production.
The wonderful music was crafted by Tony Lunn. Tony will be providing much of the music for the second season productions. His work augments each production, and we're glad to have him on board!
