This is a link post Working on a low budget science fiction short film I made this!
Did a few test shots for a craft in space, following researching the techniques that went into 2001: A Space Odyssey's Blue Danube sequence as much as I could.

This is a normal post Great stuff
Are you going to try to mix in any 2 dimensional photographs?
Once you know some of the satellites are 2D, you try to pick them out, but there are plenty of “not sure”s.

This is a normal post Still looks remarkable. All done on an animation stand.
Also, I only learned through recent reading (haven’t read the novel) that the satellites are actually supposed to be orbiting military nuclear weapon installations. Which makes the cut from the bone (earliest weapon?) so much more profound. You can see the nation flags in the surface detailing. Apparently in the original scripted voiceover for the sequence it was more than implied, but Kubrick went with silence/music instead. I’m told the novel states it directly.

It’s a shame what happened to the space station prop as well.

This is a normal post Yeah, tragic
Kubrick was such a mad bastard

This is a normal post It might seem like I’m doing the film down, I’m not...
Just I’ve read quite a lot of stuff about it. (I bought Jerome Agel’s book twice since the first one fell apart eventually)
The cut between different era weapons had been done before
A Canterbury Tale in 1944, jump to 3 minutes in - a falcon turns into a spitfire.

He was a perfectionist and unparalleled craftsman, but you can usually find the influence for most creative decisions somewhere far back enough
