Concept / pre-visualization: Corporate Espionage

First concept, not too sure about it but better than ought else I had in mind. A spy working for a company blows up rival company HQ is the basic premise of it. Set on Mars, so those two blobs you see in the back are Phobos and Deimos.

Any advice would be welcome as I'm not sure where to take this.

Nice shot.

I like the flow of the scene. The guy in the right part of the frame might be a little distracting as he is taking up a lot of the foreground. I would probably just pan the camera to the left to include more of that cool car. Maybe have him half getting into the car as he throws away his cig?

Cool idea though! Can't wait to see more.

Like the concept.. looking good

Cool Idea, mars always reminds me of total recall. I'm a fan of the dude in the foreground. I think if he's in the story, like a counter agent or something, it can justify his presence a bit more. I like that you have the standard three points of focus(agent, explosion, foreground man), it balances your composition well, but the foreground man is a bit heavy. Just to see, try lowering the camera, so that all you can see is the foot of the foreground man, maybe combined with rotating the camera like suggested above.

good luck.

Concept / pre-visualization: Second View

Still not sure really. Made the car a bit more of feature on this one, but I think I want him to be just a little more blended in, more crowded walkway maybe. Another view I'm considering is him inside the car, with explosion in background.

I really like your second one. Your sketches look awesome.
Old 06 June 2009   #10
This last sketch is the one I prefer; I'd more than likely keep him out of the car. I like this so far!
Old 06 June 2009   #11
Very nice. The POV of this second sketch is really nice.
Birth -> School -> Work -> Death -- Yikes! I'm already on number 3.

Thanks for the replies guys, wonder what you think of the idea of removing the car from the focus, and maybe making it much more crowded so he's less conspicuous? So it'd be a similar viewpoint with lack of car and many more people around him, perhaps slightly closer shot.
Old 06 June 2009   #13
I Like the car. And I like the fact that he is so conspicuous and yet he's calm cool and collected as he walks away. It looks to me like he is calmly taking a last couple puffs on his cig before getting into the car and making his get-away.

You may be right there crazy3dman, il have to play about with it. Maybe the scifi aspect needs pumpin up just a little lol, so i guess il just play around with it a bit.

I like your new sketch. It reads a lot better. My vote would be to keep the car. It's off to the side enough that it doesn't distract the eyes. I feel sorry for the dude in the middle of the explosion.
