So, Paramount, the owners of the Star Trek franchise, has released a set of guidelines for all future Fan Films in the universe.
These guidelines are, for lack of a better word, bullshit.
The word came out this week, and so many productions, some of which are amazingly detailed and better than almost any of the latter-day Trek series, are now having to scramble and make changes. Also, there is the threat of Paramount coming after with take-down notices.
So, we're doing something about it. We're hereby starting an archive for all Star Trek fan films - new and old, long and short. That's right, we'll host them here (well, on a sub page...), review them, promote them, and most importantly, save them. Yeah, we figure we'll get take-down notices, and we'll fight 'em, but we'll always find ways to make them available, for free, to as wide an audience as possible. And honestly, we'll do it for fan films in any Universe, because fan films are an important part of the story of film.
Got a film? Drop us a line at email@example.com and we'll get the ball rolling! As is always the case, no money, we're doin' this because we love fan films, you deserve to have your story seen, and we wanna help!
