Day 07 - Fan Animation

Fan Animation has made amazing advances over the past year as more individuals find that this is a project that they can don on a personal level that can approach the complexity of the larger live action fan film groups. You can have a cast of thousands, the most surreal sets imaginable and interact with creatures who would be impossible to recreate for live filming either by makeup and prosthetics or by animatronics and special effects.

Once again, this is a summary, a work-in-progress - I know there are some major productions that I have missed out - of the animations that have released episodes during 2011. As with the fan film listing, I have used the resources of BarbReader's comprehensive reference, Star Trek: Reviewed. I can't praise her work too highly, she works hard to deliver an invaluable service to fans all over the world.
