That's looking very nice!
Except that at that point in the show we're not emphasizing speediness...the ship is easing into orbit.
Are you going to have whooshy sounds?
Right now we have a little "engine rumble" kind of thing on the ship exteriors. I like that.
Apologies if this has been covered before, but what are the glowing blue balls at the bow and stern?
While Vektor was building the Polaris mesh he rendered an image of it against a NASA photo which we've used for quite a while as the cover photo on the Polaris Facebook page.
I've re-rendered it as closely as I could using the completely rigged, textured and lit version of the model, and this is our current cover photo.
We're calling those "drive spheres." They are components of the FTL drive system. Exactly how they work is open to interpretation but a form of space-time compression and expansion is involved.
Nice Dennis, very nice indeed.
First teaser poster - welcome to 1956.
Hahah that's awesome. What would make it even better is if you had all of the photographed/cg elements painted over to really sell that retro look!
I totally want a large print of that.
If we really wanted to go retro, half the elements would be painted and half would be hand-colored black-and-white photo cut-outs.
The poster looks great! BTW, are there any plans to create a trailer?
Yes, Maurice has a rough cut of a teaser trailer.
Oh, you tease.
I think our draft trailer is unique because it's actually about people and not pew pew spaceships. Plus it's got one helluva great closing line.
How's that for a tease?
Speaking of teases, does everyone here know that Dennis and Co. will be showing ~7 minutes of the show at Farpoint this coming weekend?
I was gonna wait until it was burned to DVD before I announced it.
Will anyone be releasing a teaser of the teaser trailer?
Separate names with a comma.
