Hello my Friends and thank you for your warm welcome...

This is going to be my first Teaser/Trailer since the last 3 years and my very first one for a possible upcoming movie :bounce:

Well where should i start.... ?!

Some Points for Interested Members and Friends:



I see this more as a good training for me and i am not sure if i have time to finish this because of all my other comercial projects i have on my todo-list... because of that reason i have the plan do this in Solo at this time (that won´t make anyone angry if i have to say that i don´t have time to finish this!
At the Moment there is no intended to work with live footage from real actors but i will shot some locations and TV-Samples with my camcorder to mix them up with the Final Teaser-Trailer.
I also will properbly need an good english spokesperson for the syncronisation but maybe i can do this also with simple text
I will try to focus on my 3D skills but there will properbly also a lot of mattpaintings in this.
At last.. If i am going to build a team for this... it will be very small to keep the overview and the communication very claen and fast.

- One 3D modeler & animator with good human Character skills.

- One composer for a short and impressive Soundtrack and cool sound fx
Short Idea!


I will start with a Black screen
we see small cut´s out of tv-latest news shows with footage from war, nuclear explosions, blockades on see, and demonstrations on the streets... very short and very unsharp.
camera zooms out of an i-pod like handheld in the hand of an astronaut, on board of an futuristic space shuttle who sits on a backseat.(could be some kind of special Nasa equipment)
(Pilot1 - voice:) "Attention Folks... we are short bevore touchdown"
outside of the shuttle heading for the camera and the earth on the top left... very great and very impressive with some spheric sounds like a very deep buzz and whale sounds as overlay
(Pilot2 - voice:) "My God"
The siluete of the rock takes shape in a moment where the sunrise starts of the other side of the earthsphere and the shuttle is right in front of the cam.
black screen with credits from the writer...
Now comes in at last 40-60 seconds very short scenes out of the EON universe with very fast cuts (hollywoodlike ;) Bettween these cuts i will show some keywords or i have the voice of a old spokesperson who reads those keywords... something like this... i am not sure at the moment"
With a deep buzz the siluette of the rock fades back to black and after that the EON logo becomes visible.
Fun screen in Hollywood movie style with credits
So... that´s the base Idea for now... i think it will change a bit during the challenge depending on my capabilities... we will see ;)

Over the WE i will start on the storyboard and on the previz

see ya
;) Alex

Very nice work. Very polished looking story boards. I like it alot. You have captured a really nice mood to the trailer so far, very fast paced and atmospheric (at least this is how I see it from your storyboards.) Keep up the good work.

This is awesome. I already can see this trailer on a big screen. One of those stunning trailers that causes this silence in the cinema hall.

Hopefully you can finish it. Good luck :thumbsup:

@ Grin3d :: DITO my friend!

@ TheFirstAngel :: :D Ha ha great to see ya also in here! how are you Sacha. (na ja Heimspiel ist wohl etwas übertrieben... außerdem wäre mir Arthur C. Clarke lieber gewesen... da er ja nu das Original geschrieben hat ;) Good luck to you my Friend!

@ SweD :: Hi Jens! Viele Grüße und vielen Dank! THX my Friend!

@ Claireabella :: Thank you! and i whish you also good luck and toons of fun :)


By the way: Does anyone remember the Lukasarts game "THE DIG" from 1995 ??!
Funny i remembered the Story after reading the the short description of EON.

An asteroid the size of a small moon is on a crash course toward earth, and the NASA is sending a shuttle team to stop it by placing a bomb on the surface. But they activate an Mechanism and the Asteroid changes into a giant spaceship, taking the Astronaut team to a far away planet. They discover an old planet and the remnants of an vaste civilisation that in the end destroyed themselfes. This Asteroid eclosed at the end as a giant archive that was send through space to found intelligent liveforms and to show them the future of their civilisation.

No, never heard, but I found yesterday an old C64-Shoot'em-Up named "EON" (Katakis was the better choise). Looks not very similar, but also “inspired by Eon, a novel by Greg Bear” :D.

great start already, I can't believe you found Dig to boost up the already
impressive set of images! That was such a cool game, even though I played
it first time only a few years back on PC!


I hope you have time for this challenge to make a fine finished entry, best of luck buddy :thumbsup:

Thanks buddy! nice to see ya in here!

daWinky:: Hi Sabrina, Ist ja echt cool wie viele Leute bei dieser Challenge schon nach mir ausschau halten :) Thank you!

Pixelschumi:: Yea it was so great. I think i played it 3-4 Times. The atmosphere was simple fantastic.

SONIC-X:: Thanks my Friend.


And now the not so good news

Yesterday i signed to a bigger project which will throw my whole timeframe for the next month into garbage and i have to focus on this because this could open me complete new dors for my future! Maybe i have the chance to re use a lot of the work for this project because the theme is also Science Fiction, but it is quite unclear yet.

So... i can promise to try my best for finishing this challenge and hope you all stay tuned.

(That´s it what makes the whole thing so funny... Stress can improve your skills at 200 Percent :D )

I will not complete this challenge if i have any doupt that the final result dont represent my work in the quality i dit it bevore... that would be a big fat lie on myself... but if i have the chance to make something unique out of it i will do my best to make this perfect. Thank you for your support and your kind words!

Hello my Friends!

I am so sorry for the not existing updates in this threat! :sad:

I work very hard at the moment on a very large commission which will seperate me from the outer world for some time ;) :D
...but... it will open me some dors for my "job-related" future! ;)

You can see a small sneak in my portfolio at the moment... (intro picture) it´s a quick concept painting i have done... I can not tell any more at the moment but i will show you some more work and information very soon.

I surmised as much that i don´t have the time to continue this challenge...
I am sorry for this

Thank you for your kind words my friend,
I knew what you mean, and it happens to me also on my first challenge, where i did not even one single post, because i thought i could never mess with all you guys.
This time it was different... shortly after my first post on this challenge i became offered a great job from a US book publisher and the option to earn a great amount of money as also the option to open some doors for my career and i decided to go with this offer and against this challenge.

At the end i will have to make over 30 stunning artworks to complete the live time work of Sir Gene Wolfe with his "Book of the new sun" and this will take my whole energy the next Years, to make sure that it is worth to display in his greatest book series.

I just hope you can understand my decision.
