STARSHIP YORKTOWN is a new fan produced live-action web series produced by AMALGAM PRODUCTIONS that chronicals the voyages of the USS YORKTOWN set in The Original STAR TREK Television Series period.
STARSHIP YORKTOWN is a nonprofit pro bono production home based in North Carolina, but we will film the ship interior scenes by renting the Farragut Films starship sets located in St. Marys, Georgia. Most of the ship interior filming will be on three day weekends two, perhaps three times a year. Other locational shooting will be filmed in and around North Carolina on standard weekends.
We need experienced actors that can dedicate time to play principal roles in our web series. There will be auditions for most of these leading roles, but we also need actors (which includes any Star Trek fan-actors) for supporting roles, as well as extras for the crew. It would help if Trek fan-actors owned a TOS period uniform and we will provide a Yorktown Insignia (see insignias below). We are also looking for actors for our guest roles in our episode, so if you have experience acting, or just want to be an extra, please let us know. You can send us a message with our "Contact Us" form, or you can email us direct at: email@example.com
We can always use more people with skills and/or experience in film production such as writers, editors, directors, cinematographers, producers, FX make-up artists, sound techs, PAs, production managers, costumers, set builders, prop builders, general crew members, etc., but we also encourage people who are just fans of Star Trek or Sci-Fi in general to help with the series.
Additionally, everyone that works on the Starship Yorktown web series (be it behind or in front of the camera) will receive an episode credit, a website credit, a DVD of the episode, and will be provided food and refreshments on the set during production. We also plan to provide either a car pool system or rental vans for transportation to and from North Carolina to the St. Marys sets. We sincerely hope to be able to provide some sort of assistance with lodging while in Georgia as well.
We look forward to hearing from you!
