Eon (Trailer) Entry: Sami Marsch


Here are shots I promised.


Here’s the Mig model we used in the Redsquare scene.


Redsquare with edited colors, Migs and soviet flags.


Here’s the final version of the first scene.


Here’s the first of the four newspaper covers we are going to show in the 3rd scene.


Here are shots from the final scud model, with wireframe and textures.


Here’s a preview how we built our shots to save render times.


[color=white]OZ: Thanks for the compliments! :slight_smile: Ofcourse you can use digitally painted plates. If we would have more time I would like to paint my own textures from skratch. Well I did some painting but I need to thank NASA for the base textures. But I had to lot of tweaking to get the shaders right.[/color]

fifty3dragon: Thanks!

icedays: Patricia is still in progess specially her eyes. I hope I can finish her hair and eyes tomorrow
or actually today (it’s almost morning
modeling modeling!).

Toverdoos: I would do enything to get good hdri pictures from the redsquare :wink:

targus: Thanks. I hope that the new render is bit better :slight_smile:


First renders from the otv flight scene. I’m going do some changes to camera position. OTV panel lights are made using “video post”.


Great updates Niten! The Red Square is really promising, as well as all the others shots…would be lovely to look at them animated, but hey, we won’t have to wait more for that ! A little suggestion would be about the light in the space sequences: maybe brightening up the lit surfaces and contrasting the pictures would increase the quality…just a though.
Good luck, it’s a great work!


Looks like you’ve been busy here. Some very nice images. The OTV shot looks great. Thanks for posting the breakdown of those shots as well. It’s great to see how different people put things together. Best of luck finishing up!


Hei, the OTV really looks great like the entire scene.


spire: Thanks! :applause:

fifty3dragons: We are really busy :eek: Going to school, work and creating this at the same time is bit tricky. We are going to finnish our project but I think we are going to cut some parts off because we don’t have enaught time to render.

ThE-ShiFT: We had lot problems with our renders. OTV scene was specially dificult but thanks for the tip! :thumbsup:


Some shots from the sitsuation room scene. I hope I can polish them a bit before adding to final video.


Second try for the OTV


Our version of the title text


Here’s the final newspaper shot! Now just need to make final animations and polishing.


Looking good. Those are some great looking images you’ve been posting.

We had a number of shots we couldn’t finish as well, so we simply stuck in color-timed storyboards (which according to the rules of the challenge is perfectly acceptable). It isn’t as good as having fully animated sequences, of course, but it did mean not having to revisit the overall timing/pacing, etc, that we’d already established.

Good luck as you finish up!


I forgot to mension that I’m the fellow in the last newspaper shot :scream:


Music was done by my friend Jenni Saarinen. If you are in need of music you can ask if she is available for freelancing. Here’s her e-mail adress (jj.saarinen@pp.inet.fi). I’m going to post the actual music clip with the final video footage.
