OK, one of the most important shot in the spaceship interior scene is the communication hologram. In the original shot, there’s only a take off/landing schedule chalk board for USS hornet. In the post we’re changing it to a fully interactive hologram. Tracking, compositing and motion graphic design are the three main tasks of this shot. After about 1 month of hard work, our team is getting close to get the results we want. Here’s a screen grab. What you see here is about 60% completion of the final look. More detailed tracking and color correction will come later.

Post Progress

It’s been 4 months since the “T-Minus” scene 2 went into post production. The VFX team is working hard on the shots we filmed last year on USS Hornet. Things are looking good at this point. Some of the shots are getting close to be complete. But we still have so much work ahead. Adding to that is the new scene 1 shot we filmed last week. We estimate there’re about 40 VFX shots we need to complete. Here’s one visual from scene 2, more to come in the near future.

May 11, Tuesday. We wrapped up the wind mill scene filming. Started at 6AM, finished 7PM. Everything went smoothly. We got all the shots we needed. It’s a collective effort, I’m so proud of my crew! Here’s a wrap up photo.

“T-Minus”(working title) scene 1 shoot has been under planning for quite some time now. After 4 rounds of rewrite, the storyline is crystal clear, and the plot is engaging. Location has been secured and scouted. Audition has complete. We’ve found two great young actors for our shoot. They’re talented. We had our first rehearsal on Wed. It went quite well. I made a first round of storyboards to get mind straight. Talked to my DP last weekend on the shooting plan. It seems that a 40′ crane is in the plan. That’ll get us some sweeping money shots. Excited.

The ability to navigate on a planet is insignificant next to the power of gridlock.
