The Planet - Unseen Design Work

As The Planet is going to be released soon in the US, I thought I'd put up some of the concept artwork that went into the design of the film. Attached are a few of the designs and visuals that never made it to the finished movie and a nice shot of the hero ship too.

I'm responsible for the comically huge battleship, Kerwin Robertson designed and built the actual ship used and the e-pod. Tech info. Most of the modelling and rendering was done using Maxon Cinema 4D, with post work in photoshop. Kerwin used Autocad for modelling the main ship model with later additions and texturing in Cinema 4. Other design work from the movie can be found using the links on the sidebar, under 'The Planet.'

I'll track down some more of the less seen or unused work for the next post.

Cheers Allen. I have to find the files of the old stuff now, they may be in a sock under an old copy of Cinefex (for safe keeping)!

I think the original ship reminds me too much of the vessels from one of the Warhammer 40K games, looks too military like a warship, I prefer the one you ended up with in the end.

Hi Andrew, never played Warhammer but I know what you mean. Kerwin came up with a cracking design.
