Silent Landing

Trecking into space and searching out a new beginning is a risk Justin Larson never fathomed as the inventor of force fields, but leaps in technology have given him the tools, and a hope for survival has given him the fortitude. As luck would play out, he and his crew are given directions to a habitable world they name Viridian. Creating a new sanctuary and starting over with an idealistic vision of preserving the world they are given proves to […]

eBook Covers (part 8)

There are things in Photoshop, like spacecraft, that are a little hard to produce. I’m always curious what tools they use when making movies like Avatar or Prometheus. For the ships to really look real, I’m sure they are engineered with CAD before they even get to programs like Photoshop. In Hope Landing, the spacecraft is actually a mulifacited model with numerous blending modes applied. I must confess, it looks more real than many of the ridiculous models you see […]

It’s far from hardcore, but I don’t find that most sci-fi movies fall into the […]

Silent Landing, the wonders of an alien world

One of the fun things about science fiction is to imagine something more spectacular than Earth. While I didn’t envision Viridian quite like Pandora, it is certainly described as being more exotic and varied than we know Earth, not that there aren’t spots of paradise on our home planet. Viridian is slightly smaller, slightly faster spinning, slightly lower gravity, with mountain 4 times higher, trees 2 times taller, and of course Jurassic type monsters. It is a plethora of life, […]
