Part 18: The glockstar

Alright folks! Before I give you the update, I'd just like to let you know I did some thread cleaning. Fixed broken links, updated the OP, and even made a little thing with the second post. Nothing to fancy but whatever.


19: The Glock star

On the long cutscene at the end....

The sequence "vykkers lab entered" contained a shot that lasted almost a minute and a half. This shot was also a homage to Titanic's "I'm the king of the world" shot. Except in our case the bumbling Lulu was the king of the world. This sequence was great to work on because it really took advantage of the CG model of the blimp, which was one of the most complicated and detailed models on the project. We wanted to make the arrival of Lulu at the lab look important, using lighting tricks and the expensive neon sign at the door entrance.

The blimp poster was a collaborative effort by all Production Designers. The final product is a great representation of one of the main themes in Munch's Oddysee, the industrial world creeping into the natural world.

On the blimp used in the scene....

The blimp is reminiscent of a galleon with its sails, rudders and oars. Designers enjoyed laying out the different areas, engine, storage, harvester docks, fuel cells etc., and then giving it a face that would cast respect and fear. It broke away from the round lock to make it appear faster, since it would travel greater distances and basically be the freight blimp.

Oddworld Inhabitants was apparently VERY proud of the scene at the end. The blimp in particular has a ton of concept art and renders.
