Curtis Short and Diana Kingsbury Interviews.
It ain’t easy being green … unless you happen to be the green screen at Ares Studios. Thanks to Studio Manager Curtis Short, Ares Studios is home to one of the biggest green screens in Los Angeles. It’s all part of the vision for a space that will not only bring us the best that independent Star Trek has to offer, but even more projects to stir the imagination. And if that isn’t enough to get you excited, maybe Diana Kingsbury’s new milestone accomplishment will! Listen on as hosts Robert Meyer Burnett and Alec Peters are joined by Curtis and Diana in this episode of the official Axanar podcast for two interviews that will get you caught up on what’s happening on Axanar’s construction and fulfillment fronts.
Plus, Rob and Alec fill you in on the latest work by Tobias Richter, the production status of Axanar Heroes, costumes, secret perks, and the updated 2015 Axanar financial report.

John Atkin Talks Yorktown: A Time to Heal.
In 1985, Stan Woo began production on a Star Trek fan film that starred none other than George Takei. Yes, even as the Original Series cast were in the midst of making feature films, Sulu took to the screen in a fan production. That project was Yorktown: A Time to Heal. The only problem was that the film was never finished. But as Spock said, there are always possibilities; and that’s where John Atkin comes in.
In this episode of the official Axanar podcast, hosts Robert Meyer Burnett and Alec Peters are joined by John to talk about his project to see Yorktown through to completion. John shares how he first learned about the fan film, why he decided to make sure it got completed, the progress being made, and much more.
In news, Rob and Alec bring you an update on the set production as they gather around the new Klingon war table, and also fill you in on the progress being made on visual effects.
