Latest Update: Work In Progress: Stadium "Alien" shot (

03 March 2008, 07:29 AM
I have decided to go for trailer and teaser kind of short, in a Pixarish,Blue Sky, Dreamworks style (or attempt). Even though it was tempting to make a dramatic short movie with a human vs alien theme i calmed down and came up with a fun theme.

Movie (short) description: Aliens come to Terra in search of a new home since their planet was erased by mistake. The fun begins when different life styles blend and need to overcome the difficulties.

In the 30 second teser all that will be presented will be the scene when the alien trooper ships (send ahead to secure the landing for the colonial ships) drop on a baseball field in a middle of a game. The 1st human-alien contact will be presented, that will be some sort of different as we would expected to be.

The aliens have the character of little children, agitated,easy to iritate,curios and attaching.

I will update this post with more in depth story, and a description of the full trailer shots.

This are the only 3D shots that will need to be created for the 30 second TV teaser.

I will make an animatic soon, and also proceed with the full trailer storyboard.

K, so i made the animatic for the teaser. Even though it drags the animatic down, i added some voice acting (bleah).You can view it here:

Animatic (

The thing is that i don't know if i have the time to make the trailer i have thought up, but without it the teaser is a bit confusing. I will do my best to make the trailer too, but for starters i will proceed with the teaser, and only after it is finished i will move on.

thepineman: thanks man, i only hope i can pull the whole thing off.

I will make the animatic for the trailer now only to show you guys what i am doing here, so there will be rough sketches not colored shots.

Than, starting the real deal.

Here is the shot (some brightness/hue was lost during compression):

Made today some progress since i finally got some free time. I really enjoyed creating this shot. Almost everything is made and animated in max, and mixed in After Effects.

I now move on with the next shots.
