CHICAGO – The issue of gender identity, especially for those who are born with a vagueness as to what to call themselves between/beyond boy and girl, has come front and center in the U.S., both with the legalization of gay marriage and the callous repudiation of identity by trying to pass laws dismissing it (the North Carolina “bathroom” laws). The performance companies of The Living Canvas and Nothing Without a Company is currently staging “[Trans]formation,” which presents gender identity art by six performers, who perform most of the play in the nude.
'Star Trek' Teaser Description
Here’s the Star Trek trailer description. Hope you can use it.
Slow Paramount logo.
Bad Robot logo.
Black, suddenly some sparks (very saturated, Michael Bay looking cinematography)
We hear an old NASA radio countdown: “30 sec and counting.”
Close up of a timeless guy with goggles leaning down doing some weilding and sparks flying around.
He lifts his googles — slightly futuristic head covering. It’s not a space suit, btw.
The dude leans down and wields some more — he’s standing on big metal.
“FROM DIRECTOR J.J. ABRAMS” (blue font with a nice lens flare)
Some Kennedy speech about space flight: “The eyes of the world now look to space.”
People walking around the saucer section. The wielders are everywhere, showing size.
We hear, “The Eagle has landed.”
Huge overhead shot pans across, suddenly showing what looks like miles of scaffolding underneath.
Title: “THE FUTURE BEGINS”
Really impressive shot from by the nacelle(?) of people all over the ship, and you can see a huge industrialize city or shipyard in the background. It’s being built on Earth, not in space.
Neil Armstrong: “One small step for man…”
Camera slowly cranes up over the whole saucer section.
Then we hear then Leonard Nimoy’s line: “Space, the final frontier,” and the familiar “Star Trek” theme horns.
The shot continues, revealing the writing on the top of the saucer — “U.S.S. Enterprise,” and these huge aircraft-like warp engines in the background. Technically, the first reveal of what we’re seeing.
Just the Starfleet log (no title)
Title card: “UNDER CONSTRUCTION”
Overall, really great teaser (by the definition of the term). Very industrial. I’m most intrigued by the background Earth stuff.
