THE BRIEF
To create an engaging opening to the 2011 Dimension Data satellite technology conference that would require a space pod, carrying the chief company CEO, undergoing a space journey from the main campus on earth to a mothership in the far reaches of space. Timescale for the project was two and a half weeks of full production.
FINAL DIGITAL ANIMATION
PRE-PRODUCTION
The sequence would be a staged projection-mapping displayed on a series of screens to further enhance the impact of the sequence. The event  relied on a construction with a main oval-designed substrate to keep the shape of the 'space pod' central to the rest of the movie.
STORYBOARD
Storyboards were put together to plan out the duration and details of the sequence.
DESIGN AND BUILDING: VFX BREAKDOWNS
The ship and virtual set pieces were a combination of 3d modeling as well as matte paintings.
