It's been a long long time coming i'll grant you!

zero budget sci fi show, I did the vfx using Lightwave 7.5 mainly (i was on lw 9 at the time) as the director had lw7.5
also use Vue Infinite 5 for mars landscape shots

I remember when you first posted about this ages ago; you had posted some early footage. It's so great to finally be able to watch it!

@Cresshead, This looks pretty good. Looking forward to watching it tonight.

Has this series been completed or is it still ongoing? Just wondering.

yup....you won't freeze to death there for sure

Venus is a mining colony...hi tech domes and cooling sytems but most of the population there are underground located at either pole.

Cool! Thanks for replying. Wasn't able to watch it last night but knowing that the web series is complete makes me want to watch it more. Will make time for VR today. :)

cool, mostly lightwave 7.5 shots as the director had 7.5
so i could set up scenes then upload them to him so he could frame up shots himself on some scenes.

some was rendered by me and uploaded, other shots he rendered out locally from the scenes i uploaded...he's in New Jersey
in USA and i'm in England UK.

I enjoyed watching this, a real achievement to produce a sci fi show with zero budget. Some nice effects and rendering, especially the shots of the spacecraft with multiple lights. The director is clearly very driven to convert his whole house into spacecraft interiors :)

Jason - the director and physical set maker also rented these Venus Rises interior sets to other productions: Angry Planet.. Alien Uprising.. Clonehunter.. Prometheus trap
all of which are sci fi b movies either direct to DVD or on the sci fi channel or such which you may have stumbled over if you're into low budget b movies.

He just dressed up the VR sets with different lighting and smoke effects for the other productions when they came to shoot on the Venus Rises set stage.
