Maya experimentation 4

I know Matthew suggested having the trailer start with the Astronauts already on Mars, but I still think the opening shot should be of Mars through the window of the shuttle. I think this would be a more effective establishing shot as Mars from space is recognisable, whereas from the surface it could be mistaken for a generic desert on Earth or another planet. Anyway, whether we decide to use it or not, I created a scene to get a better idea of what it could look like.

It could look really nice with a bit of jitter and with Mars slowly rotating / getting bigger. Tell me what you think, and, if you have any suggestions regarding this scene in particular then I'll make it quickly in Maya and render it out.


  1. Really like this Simon. I think we could even start with this....and then go into the shot on Mars with the craft landing, with the voiceover: "4 crewmembers, on a mission etc....."

    Also, we need to finalise our storyboard tomorrow, I think we should really talk about the WHOLE storyboard, shot by shot, so we can have a complete storyboard, we did state that it was to be done by tomorrow aswell.

  2. Good idea man, shouldn't take too long either as we have a good idea of what we want to do.
