The upcoming indie sci-fi short Landing is looking for a multitude of spaceship designs to populate the flyspace around their giant space station.
If you ever yearned to see your starship ideas take flight, here's your chance.
Landing is a downbeat sci-fi film set entirely inside a self-contained spaceship.
The story is a low-key drama concerning three characters trapped on a deserted alien planet, coming to terms with the fact that they will never be rescued.
Their home is gone, they have fled to a barren world to park their ship and live out the rest of their lives without leaving the craft.
Is such a life worth living?
Here's how they describe what they need:
-The craft are fairly small passenger and cargo vessels, perhaps 20 - 25 metres long.
-They aren't designed for atmospheric use, so they don't need wings or anything like that.
-The other craft don't have to be as detailed as Yann's model, because we won't see them as much. However, it would be good if they could have a somewhat similar general look: industrial, ordinary. You can see Yann's ship with its textures in the video on Landing's front page: http://www.wreckamovie.com/landing
-Landing's ships are not experimental or cutting edge, they're ordinary things everyone travels on all the time. They don't look flashy, they look practical. In the world of Landing, spaceships are as everyday as aeroplanes are in our world.
-There is cheap Trek-style artificial gravity in Landing, so the ships don't need any centrifuges or rotating structures.
-Landing is not set on Earth, nor does it have any connection to Earth. It's basically a totally different world, so any direct cultural references to Earth should be avoided.
-On the other hand, although these people are not from earth, they are human, so the designs don't need to be too weird or alienish.
