Hehe, Ok lets get this stuff happening. Just went out and ordered my copy of the book from the local bookstore. It sux that it's going to take a week to get here though. Feeling a bit behind the 8 ball already just due to that.
Don't think that matters that much though the chapters on CGtalk were enough to at least give me an idea of what this is all about and thinking in the right direction.

To the rest of you the best of luck.

Software and Flow chart

This is my first WIP so I'm a bit unsure of how much stuff to post on here so I'll just post everything. I know there's not much here yet but when I get going feel free to critic my work, I had a real hard ass as an art teacher so I can pretty much take anything you can dish out. (Awesome teacher though). The more things you guys can help me with the better I'll get.

OK. Been thinking about how I'm going to go about this project. To start with here is a list of the software that I'll be using for this project.

Software to be used.

Modelling: Maya
animation: Motionbuilder/maya 6
compositing: Premier Pro/Adobe aftereffects
Textures and Visuals: Photoshop CS2

I'll be working alone for this challenge. There's alot to do and not much time to do it. Presently I'm not concerned about the visualization or modelling because I've done alot of it but the rigging (in maya at least) and compositing is fairly new to me. But I have a month or so to go over it and revise, do tests and so forth before I really need to start on the rigging of the characters.

I've got my music sorted out. Close friend of mine is a musician and he's agreed to supply the music. He plays classical stuff so that should set a good atmosphere I think. Voice talent will probably be a problem. The Idea of a narative appeals to me because it means that I don't have to worry about that to such a extent, but I'm yet to decide if thats the direction I want to go.

Production flow chart and list of goals.

Thanks grin3d, as I'm working by myself I think a time schedule is very important because I can't afford any wasted time.

Wow, you are organized! I'm going to buy the book tomorrow and start reading it... and that's all I've scheduled thus far.

I like your concept for the title!

Lol. I'm sure it'll all fall apart in a week or so. But until then.

Rough Storyboards or 3D pre-visualization: Character concept



This is a concept of how the astronauts will look. normally I wouldn't start with such a detail image but I must of got carried away. As this challenge is a "Inspired by Eon" I haven't worried about being too bogged down in details with clothing and such, as long as it looks cool at the finish of the project I'm not too concerned. This is by no means a final concept however.

Your concepts are looking cool so far.Doing the trailer seems like a hell of a lot of work.

Good luck.
