 STAR TREK: PHASE II

HELP NEEDED WITH JULY EXPENSES AND EXPENSES FOR THE FALL 2012 EPISODE SHOOT

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

GOALS MET AS OF 07/13/2012:

Studio Expenses: 31% of goal

 

Server/Bandwidth Expenses: 30% of goals

 

Shoot Expenses: 4% 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 July 2012 studio related expenses, server & bandwidth related expenses – as well as expenses related to the upcoming Fall 2012 film shoot!

Studio Expenses and Server & Bandwidth Expenses for July 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.

Help With Upcoming Shoot Expenses

 

 

 



 



 








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
