MISSION BACKUP EARTH > Website makeover > Kalle's improved lens flare...
Since a while I am considering to redesign our website: www.missionbackupearth.com Could be going in this direction: http://badguyfilms.com/hitman101/#11 This task is open for general discussions about how to present the series in the best way. Technically the website is now done as a wordpress blog and I prefer to keep it that way in order to be able to add new content by myself. In addition I think we need another poster. I like the old one, but some of the Actors shown are no longer in the series. So the best would be if we get a movie poster without actors. Something simple and easy with black space, a spaceship an exoplanet or something like that. Any feedback, ideas, comments, welcome.

Work in progress.... possibly too many colors (although I shamefully like them), the lens flare definitely needs to be worked on, and the engine/exhaust fire needs to be added.

Any thoughts for the rest?

MISSION BACKUP EARTH > Website makeover > The POSTER for season 1
by: Anthony Straeger

Having seen and heard from the team about suggestion. We must remember that the prequal was to get the ball rolling and the poster created for that was fine. But The subject matter for me, is darker than the pictures we are creating. I saw something recently and having spoken with Tony Pinkpank, between us we have come up with this. I'm thinking more Alien a simple and strong image, with a strong logline. Let me know what you think

Best one I have seen so far. I wonder if you could share the source file? I think that it would only need a little tweaking of the background and text, as Kalle said, to look really awesome!

Animation Spaceship BACKUP flying trough interstellar space

For Ep"Redundancy" we need an animation of the Interstellar Spaceship "BACKUP" flying through deep space to its destination, a habitable exoplanet.

Velocity: Sublight speed (10% the speed of light)

I am not sure how that will look. I imagine, as space is so huge, even at this velocity it will look like the ship is nearly not moving at all.

Or would the stars in the background move faster, flyby like in a warp bubble???

I guess it also depends if the camera is locked to the ship or stationary.

What could be nice would be 2 different angles.

1.) from behind. Nothing really moves. Space is huge...

2.) from the side, camera stationary and from far away, ship flashes through frame like a flash?

As I am not sure what would be best, please share your ideas & comment...

and here are the initial designs of the ship: http://www.wreckamovie.com/tasks/show/2927

Holo - Animation Solar System Collapse
& Triton falls apart

In EP03 the characters discuss the situation and watch a holografic simulation how the solar system falls apart,
due to the sun becoming a red giant. The planets orbits become unstable, crash or are ejected out into the universe.


TC 0:20 - 1:11

In a second animation they look how it would be if Triton is falls apart.

These animations should later be used twice:
1.) wide shot hovering transparent as holo in front of the Characters.
2.) POV closer with blured background wall...

Design Gigantic Cargo Freighter "William Herschel"

For Ep04-06 we need a new spaceship.

It is a gigantic cargo ship.

The ship is considered as an automatic cargo ship. Loaded with cargo at the starting point
and then send automatically to it´s destination.

Mainly it consists of a long tube where HUGE Cargo Containers (size off football field) are docked.

At the rear it has a thermo nuclear drive. It should be designed as a fully automatic ship.
Which means there are no long duration crew quarters.
Just an engineering section and a little docking section with a tiny shuttle, to rescue
the loading and service crews in an emergency;-)

Attached are some images and a sketch as reference...

Thanks for the links. It's intriguing to look at the episodes, as these awards keep dropping in. The MBE is very intuitive and even if what happens feels very random it is kept together by all these gadgets. It seems to me like you've managed to create this man's world the way James Bond was in the beginning.
