Teaming up again, in spring of 2015, with partners in crime Chase Massingill, Mike 'Monkey' Senften, Jeff 'Dragon' Billon, and new addition Eddy Katt we set out for the stars to make some cool space stuff. Collaborating once more with projection mapping company BRC we were tasked to reinvent and upgrade many parts of the museum at Kennedy Space Center, FL. As NASA is making big plans for future space travel, these plans and ship upgrades had to be visualized.
I was tasked with the art direction and motion designing of several of these parts, one of which was 'On The Shoulders of Giants', showing the construction of the new NASA space ship and how the parts of it were modified and upgraded to allow for interplanetary travel.
Going from placing the space ships in different kinds of spaces and voids we decided on grounding it and placing them in an extremely large hangar. The concept was to have a space where we could go between airplane hangar mode to shutting down all the lights and turning it into a planetarium.
