Default 24th Century Charleston, SC - REVISITED

Hey all, long time no see!

I've been gone for a while because I thought someone had hacked the forum, but I came back today after I got fed up with Trek BBS and found everything was back to normal. So I decided to make my triumphant return with a new video! And yes, this time it actually has moving pictures!

This is mainly for tomcatjosh, who, like me, is a Carolina native (though I believe he resides in the northern realm, whereas I hail from Charleston). This is a short video of the 24th century version of the city of Charleston, in homage to the scene of Starfleet Command in "Star Trek: The Motion Picture". The Arthur Ravenel bridge features heavily in this, as does some experimental new architecture I conjured up using shapes from the bridge to create a cityscape. This is all the same as the slideshow, but here's what's new: I bought a blue poster board and a toy shuttlecraft and created some nifty special effects in Adobe After Effects (I'm getting better, I promise!) and even used some stuff lying around the house to create a small spaceport, complete with scaled down people (action figures)! Finally, I added a short scene of my character, Captain Victor Clark, to the mix as he pilots the shuttlecraft to Spacedock, and presto, completed project!

So, go ahead and watch the video, and tell me what you think!
