I’ve been posting scattered about my slow work on creating the trailer for an Alien-style movie (yes, I hope to later make the movie), but I think I will keep a single thread for it from now on. This is it.
The process I am experimenting with involves the “minimal viable product” concept, i.e. getting something useful in as short time as possible, then later upgrading it into another, more useful ‘product’. I posted the second version here, although I call it a first draft because the first is not worth showing publicly. I am now working on version 3. Here are a few shots of the ongoing work:
Very basic modular kits for hallways and city streets:
The street kit put to use (note that the humanoid is a crude version of an actor, they will be upgraded in version 4):
Two shots of the city panorama, which is a bit simple because it is my first real work on procedural generation in this project:
Finally, a shot of the megastructure interior, and a guy with a flamethrower. The latter is still in a very early form, but I like the material and glow:
