Growing up, and even through most of my adult life, I've never been the biggest fan of rules. I'm not sure why ... in a way, non-conformity is one of the things that, in my mind at least, makes us human and separates us from the rest of the animals. When CBS Corp. and Paramount Pictures released their fan-film guidelines last week, that first instinct of rebellion first popped up. Restricted to 15 minutes. Crowdfunding limited to $50,000. You can't use an ...

Former 'Star Trek: Raven' production challenging key rules

As dozens of Star Trek fan-films conform to new guidelines set out by CBS Corp. and Paramount Pictures, one has decided to instead test the studios on enforcement. "Starfleet Studios Raven," formerly called "Star Trek: Raven," says while it will comply with some of the guidelines shared by CBS and Paramount, it has chosen to ignore others.

Fan-Films: We Weren't Involved In 'Axanar' Guidelines

Very little support for Alec Peters' attempts at fan unity

CBS Corp. and Paramount Pictures are reportedly working on Star Trek fan-film guidelines that could change the world such hobby productions currently exist.

So Peters thought he would put together a fan-film coalition of his own to draft guidelines. Except it now seems no one really showed up. Just days after Peters ...

Diary Of How CBS Halted Another Trek Fan Production

Tommy Kraft details what happened on 'Federation Rising,' and it might be a bit surprising

Kraft's valentine to "Star Trek: Enterprise" was an arduous undertaken he did for less than $50,000, and some three years of his own blood, sweat and tears to get the film out. But since releasing "Horizon" on YouTube at the end of February, the fan-film has topped 1 million views. And those who watched it wanted t ...

Peters: Axanar Operates As A Non-Profit

PLUS: Don't ask any questions about the need to raise additional $740K

The self-imposed radio silence from Axanar Productions has ended after Alec Peters followed up his Feb. 1 interview at 1701News with a "live" discussion on Australia's Trekzone video podcast. The questions, however, weren't exactly what he had hoped for. Matthew Miller peppered the Axanar producer with questions about not only the fan-film production, but the financial aspects of the project as well in the sometimes heated 30- ...
