http://i267.photobucket.com/albums/ii292/Satipo/trek09.jpg Thanks for that link Og, was a great read. I just saw the trailer.

Really big changes to this set again with the lighting, It's been a really tough one to do...I rendered out both ways though, cant quite believe how long I've worked on all of this now. I dont see this being part of The Pilot iether, but somthing completley different...I know I know, lot of disorgan...

Thanks Allen, The support is always very appreciated over here. I hear you on the whole limitations and too much freedom thing. Alien and Jaws very good examples of it...it’s that old Hitchcock thing of a camera moving slowly towards a closed door or a slightly ajar door is more scary, because your ...

Just a quick mention here that there’s a update and new video at the blog for The Rescue...it’s a long complicated story, but I really feel strongly now that I have to bring it into colour and also do a completely new soundtrack for it. It's what is best for me and what is best for the film. Can fin...

I'm in a really odd kind of place at the moment...I did hit burn out, and that was down to working so hard on The Rescue...and so I've been resting a lot these days, but I still am very much doing film things, a wrote a big thing on aspect ratio and continue to study it. A bit more has been done on ...

Hey Pascal...that one of the room with the three playing a board game...that’s very much...well I’ve been writing about aspect ratio and how I like to see the a lot of the room that the characters are in...which you see very much in Kubricks stuff.

Here’s a complete rehaul of the scene...
