Just Passing Through – Final Scenes Shot

Remake of JPT

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a blog post – a lot happening, so I apologize for the delay.

As you may recall — back in October 2009, Farragut Films began to film our remake of our first Crew Log (film short) called, “Just Passing Through” (JPT).  On March 27, 2010, we completed principle photography of JPT.  Our cast and crew went to film the final scenes in the St Marys, GA area, which provide the film’s beginning and end sequences of this romantic and comedic short.

With more than a 5-month gap with filming this episode, we were excited to begin filming again.  We found a beautiful location to film at, thanks to the generosity of our wonderful friend, Kim Watson.  She and her husband, Brian let the Farragut crew use their backyard for filming, as well as their home for  makeup, wardrobe, and craft services refuge.

The filming went very well.  This was the first time our crew in the DC area and  our new crew (and friends) from the St. Marys area joined forces to bring a Starship Farragut episode to life.  We were also joined by Gary Washington of FANCENTRAL and his wife Teri.  I quickly got Teri involved with doing a blind hem on Commander Tacket’s new 3rd season uniform that was to be in used in this film shoot!  Marie Cook was also there – as usual to lend her sewing skills.

Countless others were there too… Dan Scanlon from The Florida-Times Union (Jacksonville-based area newspaper) spotlighted our film day – check it out for both pictures and a video short:


With the completion of principle photography of “Just Passing Through”, we anticipate the release prior to the end of the year.  More details and updates to follow with a blog interview with JPT’s Director Mark Hildebrand, as well as a combined interview with Mike and Holly Bednar.

    Hey John,
    We can hardly wait for the release of JPT! Teri and I had a blast with the Farragut family and are planning on going down to help with the sets later this month.
    Thanks for the FanCentral mention and link!
    I would like to take this opportunity to extend an invitation to you to join us at FanCentral.
    We would also like to do another Podcast soon to keep everyone up to date on Farragut. Let us know when you would like to schedule a show.

    Thanks again.
    Gary Washington

    Good to see there’s another Starship Farragut tale on the way!

    You folks do FANTASTIC work, and help feed the need for Kirk Era Star Trek stories (not all Trek fans live in the 24th Century, yah?)

    Really looking forward to seeing this when y’all are done with it,
    (from FanCentral)
