spaceships and grasshoppers

Over the past 6 months I've been working with a Falmouth based artist called Paul Chaney. Paul has been working on an installation for an arts centre in Donesk, Ukrane. He asked me to work on some visuals that would show a shuttle launching and docking into a space-station in real time. After playing around with different techniques we settled on using Maya and a vector renderer to create a look that resembled early computerised images.

the animation of the objects took a long time, we watched space launches and timed them, Paul did the maths and worked out globe rotations and travel times. Everything took longer than we planed but we did finally finish the project and below is an image of the film in the installation:

the film last aprox 20min, here are an early tests, i hope to upload the final film at some point.

Nearly there, 4 days to go! here are a selection of screenshots from the edit, they show an overall look of the film.

End shot

The final shot is made up of lots of frames all boarded up with charaters trapped on the outside, today i photoshoped together a selection of different frames to be put together in after effects.


The last two weeks have been filled with editing all the shots together i have so far, Ive been working on one edit and updating it as i go. Ive learnt lots about aftereffect, and the film is coming together quite rapidly, still im left with 2 more shots to animate and colour and then just to add some finnishing touches.
