STAR TREK: PHASE II

HELP NEEDED WITH OCTOBER EXPENSES AND EXPENSES FOR THE FALL 2012 SHOOT

(A short summary of each expense category is located below in each donate box)

This shoot, we will be concentrating on finishing our unfinished episodes so we can get them released to you!

GOALS MET AS OF 10/24:

Studio Expenses: 70% of goals

 

Server/Bandwidth Expenses: 28% of goals

 

Shoot Expenses: 70% of Shoot’s goals

 

 

Q. How can I help the production this month?

A. The Star Trek Phase 2 Production can use assistance in the form of donations to help out with our October 2012 studio related expenses, server & bandwidth related expenses – WE HAVE REACHED 70% OF OUR GOAL FOR THE UPCOMING FALL 2012 SHOOT!!!

Studio Expenses and Server & Bandwidth Expenses for October are due the beginning of each month, and quick assistance with those would be greatly appreciated.

And of course, pre-production for our Fall Shoot has already begun, so whatever you can contribute there would also greatly be appreciated, as our film shoots run into the five figure range.

These donations will ONLY be utilized to support the production efforts of New Voyages Phase II.

Helps cover studio expenses such as mortgage, taxes, maintenance and utilities (electric, water, etc) between shoots. Utilities cost money even when not being used (account fees, “line fees”, surcharges and tax, etc). These are rather large expenses that must be covered promptly before their due dates, or we incur large fees and possibly risk service disconnection and high reconnect fees.
 
Helps cover server, bandwidth and power costs to run the Post Production FTP Servers (where the episodes and VFX transfer through @ up to 3TB/month), website and forums. This only covers COSTS of the services and servers – outside companies wanted four times as much as our cost to provide these services. These must be paid by their due dates or our services get interrupted.
 
Helps cover additional utilities (electricity (for instance, the bridge alone can take over 25,000W to power – compared to your entire house, which probably only draws between 5,000W and 10,000W total), water, sewage, trash removal, transportation expenses, set building expenses, rentals, etc).

These donations are NOT tax deductible within the USA because Retro Film Studios LLC is NOT, at this time, an IRS 501(c)(3) entity.

Your help during the upcoming months is greatly appreciated, as those of us who’ve been carrying the remaining monthly expenses each month also need to save up to attend the shoot and cover whatever shoot expenses remain. As of now, with tens of thousands of fans watching our episodes, only a tiny handful contribute, leaving well over 90% of our expenses still being covered by crew and cast.

We strive to provide quality entertainment. We have over eight years of being in operation – and currently the bulk of all expenses are covered by crew and cast members – the same ones putting time, even more money and talent into making each episode).

The assistance of every fan of our episodes is sought, even the smallest contributions. $1, $5, $10, $20, $50 or higher donations will be invaluable to building a broad-base donor program.

The good news is that once we are able to concentrate more effort on producing and delivering episodes, YOU, the fans, will have more New Voyages Phase II entertainment to enjoy or to just view.

We fully intend to continue producing award winning and envelope-pushing Original Series style episodes.

Please simply click one (or more than one) of the PayPal links above to help out the production.

Our eternal gratitude in advance…
The New Voyages Phase II Team

    My personal plea is that whenever you view an episode, chip in $1. If every viewer did this each time they watched an episode, the difference in the ability to shoot episodes and get them to you faster would be like the difference between night and day!

    I remmber watching the series during its run. I didn’t of coarse realize how special that time would prove to be. The thought that it might be cancelled never even entered my little 8,9,10 year old brain how could it, it was just so much better than anything that had gone before.
    Even at that age I new LOST IN SPACE was lame with hokey scripts and less than inspired acting still; I’m sure they did the best they could with what they had.iT was a different time standards were different remmber THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES,BATMAN,GILIGANS ISLAND, THE MUNSTERS, THE ADAMS FAMILY, THE MONKEES,ECTRA these were all prime time hits.
    Before we get to smug rember KNIGHT RIDER, BAYWATCH, VIPER, THE BRADY BUNCH, THE PARTRIGDE FAMILY, BUCKROGERS and the original BATTLESTAR GALATTICA, SLIDERS, QUATUM LEAP.
    I maybe about to join the ranks of the employed again and if I can I will return and click on the paypal donations in what ever amount I can. Seriously the production value seems pretty high for what must be a pretty thin budge. I can only chalk it up to hard work deadidcation and love of subject matter because you are deffinantly punching above your wieght as they say.
    When I was much younger I always felt there should be a human vershone of “LIVE LONG AND PORSPER” so I came up with ” health wealth and happness”which covers the same ground with a nod to human emotion.
