Designed by schwar, the set has proved the film's main challenge to date. We knew this would be the case and the story was chosen specifically to allow us to craft and control the look of the film. It's been a learning process throughout, given that this is schwar's first set design, and we couldn't have done it without fantastic help from our friends:
John Davies Framing Ltd - These guys very kindly provided their expert woodcrafting services to create the set's main infrastructure, which you saw in the first time lapse video. Much of the set dressing makes use of old equipment from their factory, which helped us make the set feel like a real, working environment. We couldn't have done it without them.
Mike Stiff - Cameraman on Get Lost and Coalition of Heroes and director of the Put Anything, Anywhere VideoWrap contest entry, Mike is also an experienced set builder. He's been an invaluable asset this week, working until late everyday to get the set finished in time. Just wait till you see some of his designs for the corridor - they're awesome.
Nigel Clegg - A long-time collaborator with FXhome's most recent team member, Lucy, Nigel has years of experience when it comes to prop, costume and set design. As well as creating an amazing spacesuit for the film, he's also put an enormous amount of time and effort into helping on the set. His current focus is on the large computer consoles that can be found in the command module.
The Pier - This local shop very kindly provided some furniture for our actors to sit around!
We've put together a quick mini-tour of the set so that you can see what we've been working on. This video is actually a little out of date, as the set is changing drastically hour-by-hour at the moment. What you see here is but a preview of what is to come...
