I've change the thread cause I want to do the trailer. I've done some before just for fun (not so big and profesional like this) but I try to do my best. A rough storyboard comes this week I hope^^

Good luck with the trailer chellenge. :thumbsup:

This are my first concepts of my logo. The first one is more the typical sci-fi one (not my favorite). I think I like the both on the bottom 'cause I don't want to do "the" typical huge sci-fi trailer, more a calm and silent one.

10 October 2006, 07:26 PM (

Finally it's done this is my final Logo.
Maybe it ia a little bit old fashion but I like the idea to mix nostalgic elements with sci-fi stuff (like the "Time machine")

10 October 2006, 07:32 PM
I love the calm and silent mood concept. Maybe you will fight with impact point of view, but with good story it will be interesting for sure. Keep progressing :thumbsup:

10 October 2006, 07:52 PM
I don't know, how the story will exactly look like yet but it will have to do something with the numbers maybe something like a clock. I try to finish the rough storyboard on the weekend.

10 October 2006, 08:14 PM
I really like the idea of the clock and numbers - great and the graphic you've used is really nice...

10 October 2006, 11:55 PM
That rocks! Thats one of the most original and imaginatives concepts for the title I've seen so far.

10 October 2006, 09:50 AM
....I have get the german edition of eon in german it's ─ON pretty bad ;-)
Just for some notes and special vocabularies....It's from 1992.

Quite a personal timetravel.

10 October 2006, 10:21 AM
COOL COOL COOL.....i like it! and it works pretty well! Is very interesting to see how many different ideas works well.Keep it up! :bounce:

10 October 2006, 02:16 PM (

I'm not the big draw artist (sorry for the clumsi sketches) but I think you will understand the idea.

10 October 2006, 02:18 PM (

The 2nd part

10 October 2006, 02:52 PM
one of the most original works around here! and looks like it works!!! i like a lot the idea of the zoom into the numbers.and the fact that the asteroid appear only at the last of the trailer before closing......give to the story a touch of mystery!

10 October 2006, 04:39 PM
Wow, people are really fast around here with getting storyboards up.

Very interesting concept. I like the clock imagery and matching it with the seven chambers. It conveys a sense of there being only so much time, or a deadline of sorts, which is true enough to the story. Raises the tension right from the start. Great idea.

10 October 2006, 09:25 AM (

This is a first render of the buildings in the 2nd chamber. A little bit flowerlike but with the chandelier shape. I want a striaght form. The urban shape and buildings are missing yet. The "LEAFS" are some king of glas,energy, solar cell thing ;-) for charging the energy of the plasma beam.

10 October 2006, 10:54 AM (

Hey folks I'm back. Sorry haven't much time yet ;-). But here's my little earth. I think it is not so realistic, but I wabt a more "moody dreamlike" footage. And the rendertime is very short (very important!!)

10 October 2006, 01:39 PM
Oh you can see my house from here. LOL.

The earth looks good. I would suggest one thing however and that would be to get rid of the stars on that sit right next to the earth. Because the reflected light from the atmosphere would dull them and at least make them much less visible. Or atleast get rid of the ones that shine through the atmosphere. I know that this probably isn't a final or anything like that but it's just a thought. Something to keep in mind for later.

10 October 2006, 04:29 PM
yeah thanks for the points. you're right it will be better without the stars. I'll fix it. thnx^

10 October 2006, 05:03 PM
Nice image. Glad to see you're still plugging away at it.

Another thought on the starfield. The stars seem pretty uniformly distributed, whereas stars tend to clump together in groups and with maybe just a few really bright ones and a lot of dimmer ones (can you tell I've just been reading up on this :) ).

The Earth image looks fantastic!

I love the logo.
Good luck with the challenge man!

10 October 2006, 10:32 AM (

ok that's the final earth and stars mood. I'm going to animation know (and modelling the chambers;-) Thnx for help FIFTY and TENACIOUS. But it wasn't the last I think^

11 November 2006, 01:09 PM (

Hello folks. I'm back again ;-) Here is a first 3D concept of my MEGA. It's just a firts styleguide. It includes some art deco elements and classic structures. Like I said I don't wan't to model it to futuristic. It's just a way I want to go next steps will come soon (I hope^^)

11 November 2006, 02:35 PM
Cool structure! very original.Personally i like the art dec˛ style.I was thinking on it at the beginning of the challenge...i mean..if use that style or not. Looking to your work i believe that may work! Brillian.
keep it up! time is slipping away! (too quikly i got to say)

11 November 2006, 05:26 PM (

And once again. Now more detail work on the archways. I like them now, more fluently and gothikstyle. Must check the polygons otherwise my MACY will crash ;-)

11 November 2006, 02:40 PM (

Ok here is my final modeling step for the MEGA's. Very much of Art Deco. The strings, that were holding the "ROOFS" are gone 'cause I think that the roofs will rotate slowly along the buildings axis. Little bit of Sci-Fi should be ;-)

11 November 2006, 03:25 PM
I LIKE IT! very very very artdec˛! the glass wings are a great addition to give the MEGA's a ShiFi look!

11 November 2006, 03:37 PM (

THNX OZ. I hope it will fit in the rest of the city^^. Here is the first render pass.
I will ad some details on the edges like metal gargoyles and deco stuff to get a bigger "cathedral" like look.

11 November 2006, 03:42 PM
SWEEET RENDER MAN!!! I still think that the glass wings are fantastic...even more textured!

Did you plan to make all the city in artdec˛ style?

11 November 2006, 03:52 PM
I think about that, but I don't know if it will be to much. I will try if it will be so, I will just reduce the amount of the art deco buldings.

Everything in art deco will be more futuristic than the book is telling about. But it's just our imagination, is it ;-)

And it fits with the clock scene in the begining (ups spoiler ^^)

11 November 2006, 01:22 PM
Here is a little animation test from the ôroofsô. I know they are moving to fast. I just wanted to see how it look like.

11 November 2006, 02:04 PM
MH! brilliant idea! i never thought about moving part in the city structure...not of this kind,but i have to admit that it works pretty well! :)

11 November 2006, 11:13 PM
Great modelling and a very nice render. Looks like you're well on the way.

12 December 2006, 03:49 PM
HEY! where are you?

12 December 2006, 07:49 PM
The moving glas kinda reminds of the After Effects 7 splash screen :) I'm very curious to see where this is going.

I love that jugenstiel building, I'm a big sucker for that...

come on then, give us some more :D

12 December 2006, 10:15 PM
Nice shading on the Earth machichi! Though if you're heading for a photoreal look, having the "terminator" shown and the atmosphere visible only on one side of the planet could help a lot. Also adding a little blue to the atmo and removing the black area in the center will improve the results...unless that's the metheor shadow, but in that case you should have the clouds black too. :)

We're looking forward to see more stuff coming up! Good luck! :thumbsup:
