Each week, Harry artist Steve Price arms 24th century space vessels, including the starship Enterprise, with phasers, photon torpedoes, tractor beams and shields. The phasers, he explains, and, for the most part, the photon torpedoes, are both rotoscoped frame by frame onto the video. We bring the shot we're going to work on into the Harry. From there, I take the specific frames where the phasers or torpedoes will be fired in and paint them on one frame at the time. For the phasers, we go for a look similar to a glowing hot beam of light, but we also make it look like it has particles of sorts. It's more like a stream of energy than just a glowing laser beam.
