G & T Show Supplemental Log – Farragut Films
G & T Show Supplemental Log – Farragut Films is now available for downloading. Check it out here. While Terry is taking the night off to celebrate her birthday, Nick and Mike get the opportunity to speak with John Broughton and Michael Bednar, the Executive Producers for Farragut Films and the Star Trek Fan Production: Starship Farragut. During our interview, we discuss everything from their Kickstarter to their Production Company to their sets and Farragut Fest.
Nick kicks off the interview discussing how he first met John at Farpoint and Shoreleave Conventions. We move along to a discussion of Farragut and what it makes it different from other Star Trek fan productions. It’s a unique production featuring an all new crew on a new ship within the Star Trek Universe during the Original Series era. Moving on to what inspired this project, John shares how he met Mike. Mike is a prop and model maker, and later for the series became the set designer for the series. The discussion shifts to the Farragut’s sets, which are some of the finest and most accurate sets available and are the same ones used by Star Trek Continues.
We move on to talk about their Kickstarter for their upcoming film, The Crossing. After creating fan films for ten years, they need help to get this film made. Donate to this project if you can and help them continue their tradition of delivering completely original stories within the Star Trek Universe. Returning to the discussion of their production, we discuss Farragut’s Animated episodes. We move onto Farragut Fest, their open house to show off their sets, props, and everything they have to offer. If you’re in the Kingsland area, come by for a visit. We finish up the interview with our Lipton questions.
But, wait. There’s more.
He is the co-owner of Busy Little Beaver Productions and is the producer and co-host for G & T Show and Gates of Sto’vo’kor. He’s directed voice actors, and produced and edited audio podcasts and dramas because he doesn’t have the face for video. He plays well with others and is always on the look out for the next project, the next thing, the next next. If he wasn’t working on something with a half dozen other projects waiting in the wings, somebody please check to make sure he’s still breathing.
During the day, he’s a mild-mannered computer repair man who dabbles in web design in his small, rural, Central California community. He lives with his lovingly dysfunctional family and loyal canine companion and spends most of his time in the closet concocting some hair-brained scheme or another. He’s got an unhealthy obsession with Lego video games, Klingons, and Star Trek Online that borders on the neurotic.
Despite all this, he still finds the time to write the words. Find out what he's doing here.
