If you've ever wondered why it can take so long to turn out an episode of Starship Excelsior, post-production team member Bob Hopwood has put together a video that shows what goes into it. Hope you enjoy it and I hope you will be even more interested in checking out this audio drama.

Post-producer Bob Hopwood took the time to make a video showing how we make Excelsior -- including one minute of material from the new episode!

It is a really n...eat video, and is a pretty good explanation of what the post-production team does all day. (I, for one, just spent all weekend on a scene with explosions in it.) And it shows how much raw work this is: Bob puts together one minute of the show, and it takes him an hour. And that's just the first draft!

What a great team we have working on this!

Happy Monday!

Just approved a new comm filter put together by our amazing director, Jim Smagata! We've struggled for years to find the right balance between "distorting the voice enough so you can tell she's talking over the comm" and "distorting the voice so much you can't hear what she's saying." This is something filmed Star Trek never has to worry about, but I think -- thanks to Jim -- we've finally found the sweet spot.

So, thanks Jim!

That's the exciting production update for today.
