another image with some fixes. The explosion is done with Maya fluids, Missile with simple particles. There are about 9 Layers at work here. Its not compiled in Photoshop Its done in After effects with just some very simple color correcting in certain layers. Im trying not to make it look corny and dumb. I need to mature the image and finalize it. Still thinking of ideas feel free to comment ofcourse. Thanks guys

I'm on it. I'll post my progress soon.

Seems that I'm the first Blender user to subscribe to this challenge, because the .blend scene is all mess up and nobody said that. Anyway, importing the .obj file all gets correct. So, a tip for Blender users: use .obj file!

Preston,
Your scene look great!

Cheers,
Victor.

Bullet holes are now textured well and the lazer is making me happier. I need some work on the background I feel like it might be too blurry. Still going Let me know what you think. Thanks Guys!

Vicky I like the camera angle. I feel engaged by it. Like you can tell the kid is really engaged in what he is watching. Very nice

I think light should fall on the child too.
For the color of the light try to insert a mib_cie_d node in the color slot of the light (start from 3200 in the color temperature.)

Hello,

Thanks for such an interesting challenge.
Below is my render done in Maya mental ray and composite in Nuke.
Render time is 2 mins. This is my first take at this challenge, started 4 hours ago.

Its still needs more work.
I would love some feedback and comments.

Thanks !

Doors look to be too much reflective to me.
If I'm not wrong I can see reflections on side speakers, I think they should have only diffuse a shader with a cloth texture
Nice work.
