I was born in 1967, which means that my generation was the first to enjoy the original Star Trek series on syndication, not in prime time. I was a big fan, even before Star Wars made Sci-Fi even cooler. In fact, when I was in second grade we always played pretend Star Trek on the playground (I always played the alien who got killed by Captain Kirk).
Today I got to relive those memories when I created this video. On my phone. With no cables. And distributed to the world.
I always dreamed of what it would be like to really live in the Star Trek universe. If you had told me when I was eight years old that I could not only create that amazing video effect on my own without any assistance, I would not have believed you. And then when you told me that it was created on a phone? Well, that would have really blown my mind.
Video created with Action Movie FX app. Star Trek Into Darkness opens in theaters on May 17.
