Thanks for the idea! I wouldn't mind making my own Star Trek films. Career-wise I had to avoid it at school. Its not good having a reel of mostly Star Trek stuff if you are applying to all kinds of companies. In my 3D modeling reel I just had a 360 spin of Voyager in wireframe and simple shader. Long before I went back to school. I cooked up my own fantasy sci-fi story(14 pages so far) as a source of original ideas for drawings, paintings, 3D models and animation. It became my thesis. Check it out at if you like. There is a ton of work yet to be done. Alas the time to do that has vanished. Summer will be the best time. I don't teach on Sundays in the summer. I look forward to that...
All artists are obssesive compulsive... its what keeps us going!
The science inspires the dream, the dream creates the art...the art fuels the dream and continues to inspire the science!
