INSIDE THE SHIP
Bringing the world of the USS Callister to life meant bringing a distinct touch of nostalgia to the bridge
Although the bulk of how the ship looked inside wasn’t achieved by modelling, it still fell on the VFX teams to make the physical sets sing by adding some elements of realism.
russell said, “for the glass and reflections of the main windows, one of our lead compositors created a setup using V-ray for Nuke that created a multi-layered reflection of an HDRI projected on to the set geo. this meant that we had a lot of flexibility to tweak this in comp.
“the interior set also had a variety of lighting states, so we always had to have this in mind when creating the colourful space exteriors. the last thing we wanted was to create an overpowering colour palette or a background that clashed.”
