About the film

The film is Sci-Fi in genre, set on a giant spacecraft.

The Environment/Concepts Art Needed

The three environments are: Main bridge, Shuttlebay, A Shuttle Craft interior (not related to the main spacecraft.).

Main bridge:

Image 1: Bridge view of Captains Chair, main characters are Commander in the middle, Lieutenant and Ensign either side. Computers and a small number of officers are around the edges and back of the room. It’s medium sized.

Image 2: Bridge view of video screen. This is a video screen showing either the outside space or video communications similar to Star Trek.

The main bridge has the main captains chair flanked by two support lieutenants. Is medium sized. With more officers working on computers around the sides of the bridge.

Shuttle bay:

Image 3: This image is a view of the commanding platform in the main shuttle bay. The shuttle bay is large with large doors opening to space and shuttle crafts entering the processing area. The concept image should show more of the perspective of the size and stuff going on in the shuttle bay than is currently in the reference image above. In this concept image it should contain the main shuttle bay officers, the Commander appearing as a hologram, other officers working on computer in the background and a viewpoint of the whole of the shuttlebay in the background. Including entrance from space, and shuttle crafts landing in the processing bay, machinery for fixing shuttle crafts etc. and emergency pop up medical tents have started to fill this space with people from the shuttle crafts being helped to them by the ships officers.
