RMB drops his second behind-the-scenes mini-documentary on the making of AXANAR.

Robert Meyer Burnett, originally tapped to direct the failed, feature-length, Star Trek fan film, AXANAR, continues to deconstruct his experience on the project. In this mini-documentary, Rob runs down the work behind the first view of Earth in the 23rd Century as envisioned in the film.

RMB narrates the footage, providing his insights into how the shots were imagined and then created (and polished) by noted VFX wizard, Tobias Richter and his team at The Light Works.

The visual effects shots in this mini-documentary feature Starbase One in orbit around Earth and a host of Federation vessels seen at the beginning of the story as re-written by Bill Hunt and Rob. Also included in the short film are several production illustrations by famed Star Trek designer Andy Probert and other reference material used by Rob and Tobias as they worked through the look of the “hub” of the United Federation of Planets. 

According to Rob, there is more footage to share at a later date as part of the on-going, “Deconstructing AXANAR” series on The Burnettwork.

Stay tuned …
