Well, it’s been a year since Alec Peters’ Axanar, the non-Trek Star Trek fan film production, was sued by CBS and Paramount.

I had originally thought to post something about how the lawsuit changed the landscape of fan films, mostly through the fan film guidelines that came a few months later, but to be honest I’ve found I don’t really have anything much nice to say about the whole affair.

Best of luck to those still producing, and to Starbase Studios as it moves to a new home.

Paradox Girl is back! PG is easily one of the best comics to come around on Kickstarter in a long time, and now she is back for another round with all-new issues.

And now you can see what the fuss is about by checking out PG’s first issue for free [HERE].

You can also find out More at Paradoxgirl.com, or by checking out the Kickstarter for issues 4-6.

Don’t worry, this one won’t kill you with shipping costs for the physical issues, and you can still get Issues 1-3 in several tiers too.

Highly Recommended. Check out that free Issue on Tumbler to see for yourself.

Starbase Studios

For filmmakers looking to produce a Star Trek Fan Film, there’s basically only one set left open to them in the US, unless they build their own, and that’s Oklahoma City’s Starbase Studios

Starbase Studios has one of only three replica bridge sets in the US, and is now the only set open to the public to use for filming. The studio operates as a non-profit and supports the guidelines set by CBS. The studio is home to several productions, and it needs our help.

The studio has had a good run at it’s current location, but has been asked to move soon and there is a deadline. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help cover the moving expenses and anything anyone can spare towards the effort is , of course, immensely appreciated.

Huge news for fans of Hollywood Movie Studio, aka Hollywood Mogul 3…the game is now free! Well, it’s pay what you want, and it’s definitely still worth some dough in my humble opinion.

HMS is the culmination of generations of text-based games simulating YOU running a major Hollywood studio. Sure, it’s not flashy and the graphics are near non-existent, but that’s a plus, not a negative here.

There have been countless attempts at making the perfect Television or Movie studio sim, and HMS gets it as close as anything has ever accomplished. Is it perfect? NO. Being text-based, it is not going to float every persons boat. Still, no other studio sim lets you feel like you are actually green-lighting the flicks and seeing if they pay off in the end, raising your studio cash enough to try your next silly Rom Com starring George Clooney. Or Jude Law. Or anyone for that matter. Continue reading »
