There"s no better way to re-launch my production company under the RocketSlide Films name than doing this "Madmen in Space" - "Moonraker esque" throwback spot for AXE and [adult swim]! We used an amazing set that was originally constructed for Space Cowboys and was as close in detail to the real shuttle flight deck as we could possibly get. We scouted Space Camp, Houston and Seattle Museum of Flight before settling on this set and shooting out in LA. We also constructed a one off 1/ 48th scale model shuttle for the opening and end graphics page and picked that up back here in ATL. I mean we could have done it in CG but what fun would that have been! The liquid in zero G we photographed clear water over black at 2000fps on Weisscam and comped it back in to the frame giving a way more realistic looking space liquid. Anyway this is how space travel will look in the future when we pimp out our vintage shuttles that we picked up at the swap meet with shag carpet and spinner rims and launch em in our back yards!
