Interviews | Howard Anderson
The Enterprise library

To make life easier, Howard’s team assembled stock footage of the Enterprise.

Picture We shot all of the models and did the optical compositing of the models with the moving stars at different speeds and little different angles and each shot was identified and numbered and put in what they called the library.

The transporter we could not library because it was different on each shot. And we did save a lot of the phaser shots that were developed. Once we did the photon and the phasers, we were able to put those in many other shots.
