Filming of ceremonial reception

Tým, který se podílel na natáčení slavnostní recepceWe had a great opportunity to shoot in a beautiful place – restaurant/café called “Fuel Café“ in Vodafone building, situated in Prague, Vinohrady - during the weekend 8th-9th March.

Both the weekend and the preparation for it were demanding. Not only from the organization point of view – there were over thirty humans (and other extra-terrestrials) on the set – but also because of the high number of masks, coordination effort and backstage preparation...

Karel ( exhibited incredible skills again and masked Andorians, Romulans, Vulcans and Tellarite for both days. Ondra was helping with masking, and make-up was lagga’s and Irča’s job. You can see the results here, in our photogallery and on Facebook.

Of course, there would be something important missing on a ceremonial reception without something to eat and drink for the emissaries and Starfleet guys. Provision of alien looking (and tasting) food was managed by Barvička. Everything was edible, and we tried it immediately after* the last take of the weekend.

On Saturday morning, we put greenscreen in place. This will be removed in post-production and replaced by a view of outer space. Thanks to the plenty of space, we were able to shoot both from camera cart (dolly) and with the help of camera crane. Both technical solutions are self-made.
