Chambliss – The Challenge Of Making A Star Trek Film

Friday, September 25th, 2009

Working on a Star Trek film means having to deal with the baggage that comes with a long-term franchise.

Production Designer Scott Chambliss had to balance telling a good story with not angering the long-term fans. “Every project I get to take on is a grad school thesis course,” he said. “I can jump into something and learn everything I can about what it is and what is going on. And it changes, obviously, because it is a job to tell a visual story dramatically and articulately. So, in that respect, that was super-exciting.”

Abrams, he was leery of Star Trek‘s baggage. “My reaction was really all over the place,” he explained. “Of course I wanted to do J.J.’s next movie and I was excited that it was something we’d never done before. But at the same time, I also felt a lot of trepidation because of all of the history and baggage that the franchise has. That was a little troubling, but then we figured out how we had to approach it and moved forward. From a creative standpoint, there’s a real difference between approaching a piece of new material that doesn’t have any history and expectation based on what’s come before, and this only has history and expectation. It’s got a fervent group of believers in the material and there’s just so much that you had to be aware of beforehand in terms of what’s come before, which had to be considered before we even approached how we might want to do this newer version.”
