After yesterday’s blog about the troubling behavior of TERRY McINTOSH, I’d really hoped to get back to fan films today. Yeah, I thought I was out, but Terry pulled me back in. However, this WILL be my last Terry McIntosh blog for the foreseeable future. I don’t want to keep giving him all this attention, even if it is completely negative. But I felt it was necessary to follow-up on yesterday’s blog because of something that happened later on last evening.
Quick recap: Terry McIntosh, who worked with Axanar Productions for years before flying off in a huff has all the footage from Prelude to Axanar…including outtakes. Even though Terry signed a non-disclosure agreement agreeing to keep all Axanar-related materials confidential, he already leaked an early version of the full Axanar script, and now he’s announced plans to release a Prelude to Axanar blooper reel…even though he doesn’t own the footage or have permission to do so.
Terry’s stated intention is to use the blooper reel to embarrass Alec Peters, who apparently worked through numerous bad takes to get his performance as Garth to a point where it would be strong enough to feature in the fan film alongside the professional actors (who obviously didn’t flub their lines as much as Alec did…since he’s not a trained actor).
Terry contacted the other actors (with the exception of the late Richard Hatch and his estate) to ask “permission” to use their blooper footage (failing to mention that he was no longer with Axanar Productions and was doing this “rogue” in an attempt to embarrass Alec Peters). Although Kate Vernon said okay, Gary Graham and J.G. Hertzler said no.
Then Terry said this:
What I wrote in yesterday’s blog was NOT pretty. But at least, I thought, this can’t get any worse. There’s no way for Terry to possibly sink any lower.
Man, was I wrong…
