The universe of Polaris

  • Polaris a starship of the United Worlds Navy, pursued by the Authority and lost in the uncharted reaches beyond the Milky Way.
  • Phaidros a planet that cannot exist…yet does. To find their way home again, Captain Sam Fredericks, scientist Valerie Young and the crew of Polaris must decipher its mysteries.
  • Their discovery will forever change humanity - if they live to tell about it!

Polaris is about two months from the beginning of principal photography.

We moved into our stage about three weeks ago.  It took about a week to get set up with electric and heat, get locks on everything etc.  Then the producers, construction crew and director of photography (or: How To Make A Few People Sound Like A Lot Of People Through Creative Titling) did a walk-through to discuss requirements.

Ray Stantz has become our unofficial mascot:

“Wow. This place is great. When can we move in? You gotta try this pole. I’m gonna get my stuff. Hey. We should stay here. Tonight. Sleep here. You know, to try it out”.

Then a couple of us rented a truck and hit Home Depot.  We got about seventy percent of the materials and tools we’ll need to complete set construction into the place.  Eager to get down to work on building stuff at last, I immediately drilled a hole in my thumb.  It’s already like old times in Austin.

Quite a bit of the action in Polaris takes place on the main Command Deck of the ship, and that’s the set we’re currently working on.  You can see the concept rendering for the set as well as a couple of images of the early stages of construction in our Sets and Locations gallery, or by clicking on the images to the left here.

Yeah, those are Burke chairs - I own a bunch of them and I think they look cool.  I know that some folks will think we’re ripping off that show that used them years ago - The Brady Bunch.

    Is that the 10th Doctor in the background of rendering?

    Yeppers - he lends a bit of scale, though he’s a little ghostly.

    How much is it to build a set? Also how do you go about building one?
