Latest Update: Edited storyboards or 3D pre-visualization: earth


In this first post I want to describe my personal approach to contest.
In my rough ‘first’ storyboard there are some characters, some city views and space views that I want to realize with personal (but common) technics of modelling.
I pay my attention firstly to story and final view

cheers to all


I like it! what software will you use to develope the trailer?


I want to use maya (I think) for render and animate the entire sequence


page 1 of edited storyboard


page 2 of edited storyboard


and now let’s start to create,
ehm sorry I miss number, please read the storyboard from left to right in row
1 2
3 4
etc …


Nice, straightforward concept involving some key visuals from the story. I especially like the idea of framing the whole sequence with Patricia and the proposed lighting for her. Looks good.


i like your storyboards, im looking forward to seeing more, good luck.


3d previsualization of the earth for first rough action footage

realized with 3 sphere
one for glow
one for clouds
one for earth and sea
in this way I can rotate the sphere clouds for a wind effects


Hi MediaCyborg!!! nice to see another italian in this challenge!!! :smiley:

to obtain a realistic effect you could attenuate the ambient light in the shadow zone of the earth and atmospheric ring too.

Forgive me my bad english.


ThE-ShiFT team


Interesting idea. Perhaps some more detailed storyboards so we can get a better idea what your vision is? I’m quite curious.


4 ThE-ShiFT : Yeah I know paisà, but I like this blue light so sci-fi

4 RaresHalmagean, fifty3dragons , and opentarget: I publish my detailed storyboards soon, tnxs for interesting


Nice pre-viz shot. Looking forward to more.
