Final Piece for my University's final year Digital Compositing module. The brief was pretty open ended, and we basically had to demonstrate techniques we learned in the class. Taking a total of 7 days to complete, I was stumped for ideas at first, but I'm amazed I produced this much in such a short time, though of course there was more i would liked to have done. Had my laptop been a bit more powerful, I could have done it in even less time, but them's the breaks...
The main methods were green screen and matte painting, with plenty of colour correction and a few 3d models created of the different spaceships.
