I thought this might be of interest to some of you guys. I didn't know where else to post this, movies or TV. A new film project called Space Command is being developed. A throw back to the 1950's style of science fiction movies. This must be a first, using Kickstarter to fund a film project. What is interesting is the group involved. Former special effects guys on the Star Trek film and TV series as well as the recent Battlestar Galactica series. There is no involvement with a studio. So you, the people who contribute by funding it are the people who are doing the film, as they say. The writer/producer is Marc Scott Zicree who wrote for TV shows including the Star Trek spin-off series, Babylon 5, and the new Twilight Zone. Doug Drexler Is a producer and doing Special Effects and his work includes the Star Trek series and Galactica. And the director is Neil Johnson, I'm not familiar with his work. Other former Star Trek people are involved too behind the scenes. Here's a link to the Kickstarter page. http://www.kickstart...8/space-command They've got an impressive start with the funding and it's caught the eyes and ears of the establishment in Hollywood. I suppose this is nothing more then an indie film project, but it appears to be getting buzz. Even Damian Lindelof the writer of Lost and the upcoming film Prometheus is tweeting and watching the progress. I discovered this through a blog of a former Hollywood make-up and special effects artist's site, Steve Neil. He did the ears for Spock in Star Trek The Motion Picture as well as work on Ghostbusters and other films. He's quite a model maker and is involved too. I thought this might be fun to watch as it develops. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3o9VQ8w3GxY http://static.hometh...um.com/imgrepo/

Thanks for sharing this.  I decided to donate just to see what they can create.  This will be my first foray into a Kickstarter project.

You are welcome John. Glad to see you are helping those guys out. I have not contributed myself yet. I see they met their goal of $75,000 in a few days! That's an amazing accomplishment. So the more they get, the more they can do.
