The Star Trek Film Academy is set to boldly launch in 2019, Academy founder James Cawley announced on Saturday morning during a panel at Star Trek Las Vegas. Cawley, creator of the popular Star Trek The Original Series Set Tour, revealed that applications will be accepted starting today for its first session of The Star Trek Film Academy, to be held on Tuesday, April 30, 2019 through Sunday, May 5, 2019 in Ticonderoga, New York.
“The Star Trek Film Academy will provide a unique, immersive overview of the art and craft of filmmaking,” James Cawley said. “Our faculty includes Star Trek professionals from both in front and behind the camera. They will not only share their insight on the art of production, but will relate it to their personal experiences working on Star Trek episodes and movies.”
The highlight of the Academy will be the production of a short Star Trek film, which will be shot on an exact replica of the classic Enterprise interior sets of Star Trek: The Original Series.
The Star Trek Film Academy will offer three tiers:
First Tier (includes lectures): Students may choose to take the lectures only. Lectures will be open to the largest number of students. You can also audit up to three lectures.
Second Tier (includes lectures and workshops): This level will have a limited number of availability, to comfortably participate in the hands-on workshops. This mid-range price point choice includes all the lectures and workshops.
Exclusive Third Tier (includes lectures, workshops and full scene filming): This tier offers students the entire program of lectures, workshops and a full day of filming and a day of post-production. With the least number of students in the sessions, participants can get fully involved in the exciting film shoot.
Also offered is a Cadet Ticket Short Scene Fun Film, open to all students and to the public. Any student can add the Fun Film on to any of the tiers if desired. The short scene fun film is your chance to get into uniform and take on a Star Trek role on camera, including having a line of dialogue.
There are a wide range of tickets available at multiple price points. For more information or to purchase tickets, go to www.startrektour.com.
