1971 "Star Trek" student film
YouTuber Ray (now aged 63) has uploaded this Star Trek film he made for college back in 1971, possibly one of the first Star Trek fan films.
Here is the description from YouTube:
This video was a final exam in a TV production class that I took at Ohio State back in the spring of 1971. Even as a lad of 21, I always had to have everything preserved!! I had this taped on 1" open-reel videotape, then transferred it to U-Matic and then to Beta. (I got an A-.)
