Xander David Hugh is a Graphic Designer based in the south of the UK.
This project took around 6 weeks of my free time having only recently embarked on a personal project to learn 3D software. Lightwave 10, After Effects CS5, Sony Sound Forge, modified version of the Voyager theme tune performed by the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra, modified Voyager mesh by Sarod, and various google images composited in Photoshop CS5.5.
As trolled by Dan Curry! Unable to take imitation as flattery, and unwilling to accept fan art by way of offensive emails demanding I take this video down. That's not how fan art works Daniel *facepalm*
"Today was the first time I saw your revised title for Star Trek Voyager. As the original designer/supervisor and on behalf of the talented team that worked with me to create the sequence I applaud you technical expertise with the software but would encourage you to concentrate your efforts on creating original work. It is flattering in a way that you would go to the trouble of emulating what we have done but ultimately it is somewhat insulting. My colleagues and I feel like someone has gone into a museum and spray painted over a work of art we had done to "correct" it. When you post such a piece please make sure that you clarify that it is a recreation and not from the show.
There was a lot of talk about the reflection of the ship in the planet's rings. We first made the scale accurate but those higher up the food chain insisted on scaling it up so that it could be readily seen in a quick cut.
You are clearly a talented artist/designer with great computer skills. You would be best served by concentrating you efforts on your own creations and leaving others' alone.
And the classic:
"without a doubt, you are the most willfully ignorant human being I have ever encountered and it is infuriating that there is some piece of fecal matter out there claiming credit for my work and some gullible fuckhead that believes it" - firstname.lastname@example.org
Oh dear! There's always one!
