Hey everyone,

I searched around on Google and could not find any good pictures of the inside of the Fortress of Solitude (as seen in the Superman movies and on Smallville). The only good one I found had several production crew people standing around in it. I was wondering if someone could make a backdrop of the inside...I don't mean anything fancy...here's the scene from my fan-film: Superman is standing in the fortress talking to the hologram of his father. All I need is a background of a wall that looks like it's made out of crystals. Nothing more than that. Just something to throw behind Superman to make it look like he's standing inside the Fortress...is there anybody who would be willing to help me out? I'd greatly appreciate it!

That's actually pretty close, that could be used as a shot to show just how big the inside actually is. Thank you! Now I just need one of a basic crystalline wall for him to stand in front of. Thanks for the pic though, I can really use that!
