Hey JamesMK nice to see you entering the challenge once again. It's good to see some vets around!

Good luck
  10 October 2006
Good luck, James, I'm sure you'll pull this one off with flying colours!


PS. By the way, you've decided to do the location I was thinking of as well! Maybe there's room for two libraries in this contest DS

Hey James,

Good to see you entering the challenge. Being the 'when is the new challenge smartypants', I am expecting great things from you.

p.s. You didn't tell us it was a big complex book, I have only read about a tenth and already my head hurts.

Best of luck,

Cheers again, random thread visitors

@ Anders - Yep, I wouldn't worry too much about the same location popping up from different participants... It's quite inevitable considering the nature of this challenge anyways - just good luck to you!

@ BrokenCompass - Hey, it's not complex - "intriguing" is the word you're looking for, see


That aside, a preliminary schematic coming up below in a minute or two:

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Initial schematic

First doodle, a bit premature, but more stuff will follow later on.

LOCATION: the "old" library in the city of Alexandria, second chamber (IIRC). I'm going to allow myself some minor artistic liberties and combine two slightly different architectures here:

- to the left is the older part of the library (referred to in the novel as "a museum") with lots of books, several storeys stacked on top of each other... currently looking at some aztec/mayan designs for walls, pillars and floor tiles.

- to the right, the slightly newer part with a different interior style, still a lot of books and so forth, but also some sort of computer terminals. Very wide and open, ceiling way up, big panorama windows showing the city outside.

ANIMATION: camera moving along the marked path, gradually revealing the newer parts and Patricia studying a book, in the distance, and Lanier walking past the camera in the opposite direction. Nothing dramatic - a typical establishing shot.


Be indiscreet - do it continuously.

mixing style would be surely efficient with a good modeling, and I don't worry about this
Your idea is great and worked, so....
Good luck to you James

Beautiful sketch James! The scope of the scene is well thought out. This looks to be a great work in process!

  10 October 2006
Just popping in to wish you luck. Idea looks interesting so far.
