Despite being the highest grossing Star Trek film ever, serious Star Trek fans have a downright loathing of J.J. Abrams’ sequel. I understand the criticism and think their right after thinking about it and discussing the film, but it didn’t take away from my enjoyment of the film sitting in the theater. I’ll chalk it up to great pacing.
Now the folks at How It Should Have Ended have released their latest video and they’ve taken some pot shots at the questionable rationale made in the film. Don’t worry there are plenty of lense flares.
After what feels like a life time I’m happy to finally present our latest short, How Star Trek Into Darkness Should Have Ended! This is a special episode/colaboration which was written and almost voiced entirely by our friends at Screen Junkies. After we animated a segment for their Into Darkness Honest Trailer we thought it would be cool to see what they could come up with for an entire episode, and we were not disappointed! It’s always risky when other people write episodes for us. You never quite know what to expect, but I thought they brought up lots of relevant “issues” to the plot/series, as well as keeping it fun to work on. Big Thank You’s to Spencer Gilbert and Andy Signore for writing and getting us such great new voice work as well! This short is crammed with new voices! Andy Signore (Star fleet Officer), Piotr Michael (Khan & Original Spock), and Jon Bailey (aka movie trailer voice/our Klingon) And Otis Frampton with his always wonderful background art! His art made all of the sets feel so grand in scale. They all did amazing jobs. It was a complete blast of a project to build.
So I hope you guys enjoy it. I know I’m completely biased. Thanks for watching!
