    Looking better and better (of course). One little thing, though. Shouldn’t the lander’s landing gear springs bounce a bit upon touchdown? I know it is only 1/6 gee, but just a bit to get a feeling of mass.

    Then again, I may be wrong and lunar landers don’t have springs in their suspension. But it would look cool.

    Nice! I loooove motorbikes flying in slow-motion :D
    Looking forward to the next episode, keep up the good work!

    This all looks great and given that you are still working on it I am very ecited to see the next step and obviously the final product.

    The soldier’s gear is awesome…where can I get one ;)
    Congrats to everyone working on this and making it THE movie to see in 2012!!!

    Cheers,

    Merc

    I like the campaign poster and company logos on the lander – looks like NASA needs sponsorship in the near future!

    Aw guys! It looks awesome!
    I particularly enjoyed the point made about setting stars in the skies.

    ..hihihihihi…..

    Very interesting, if only most people knew how much effort creating such a scene takes… (let alone a whole film with 800 VFX shots)
    How old is this cut/version?

    I saw a few shots without any temp grading, looking very ”flat”.
    The final composites will be rendered out very ”flat” in order to have lots of room during grading, right? (are you actually using log curves?)

    I wish you all the best luck to finish in time without very nasty compromises!
    And no mater how whatever turns out, doing this in Finland is already a milestone! (I wish someone got the guts and finances to pull off a project like this in The Netherlands…)

    Will there be sound in space?

  8. joona_vainio@wippies.fi says:

    @Lauri
    At least music, I hope :)

  9. Chris G. says:

    The sponsoring on the lander is a nice idea.

  10. joona_vainio@wippies.fi says:

    Yeah, had to check it out. The lunar landers indeed had shock absorbers. Kinda disposable ones made of aluminium honeycomb.

    No offence, but as is, the landing now looks like a plastic toy set on a table. I hate to nitpick, but that somehow bugged me, and my “wolf-couple” noticed that as well.

    I know this is a work in progress, but just in case you had overlooked the issue.

  11. VAA says:

    Looks great again.
    By the way, do you have a time machine available?
    I hardly can wait for the final result……

    Definitely the huge task is going forward nicely. One thing that caught my eye, was the scene where the lander explodes and character flies to his back. The short cut just showing his leg at 4:07 was in my taste, unnecessary and too fast. If everything else is happening in slow pace fast cutting makes it break the illusion. But thank god I am not making those decisions :) Great work guys.

    This scene is getting better all the time!

    Btw, when the nazi shoots with the bazooka, I assume that Washington doesn’t hear the missile coming (because he shouldn’t) and really gets surprised when the moon lander explodes yelling something stupid/unexpected before blacking out.

    Keep up good working guys :)

  14. BEFKING says:

    Looking good guys. When the nazis stick their head out from behind the rocks (1:55) the movement looks fake. It looks like someone has 3 puppets on a stick. The movement doesn’t look natural. Keep up the good work.

  15. ralfandreas@web.de says:

    Please check the chemical reactions in the VERY thin lunar atmosphere: the fiery explosion of the lander looks too terrestrial to me.There a clips of lunar module take-offs from the later Apollo landings where there is nothing burning. The shock waves after the explosion are okay but there should be a kind of gaseous cloud rolling over the astronaut. There is no air on the moon.

  16. ullrich.office@gmail.com says:

    No offense, but the surviving astronaut behaves like Jar Jar Binks :(

  17. sruokamo@iki.fi says:

    I think the sponsor ads and posters were a bit too much for my liking. I see their point (maybe it really is this kind of future we are aiming for), but overall they are nothing but noise that makes the whole scene look cheap and flimsy. I would aim for a clean style ala Kubrick and let the actors take care of the comedy.

    Just my 2 cents. Maybe the graphics were just some texture markers anyway.
