Desperate Flight setup

A fairly quick build, the main time-consuming parts were figuring out what I wanted to do to detail the ceiling inside, and getting the tentacles in the right positions. Being an interior-only shoot, it stayed on the corner of the table amongst the mess where it was built, no need to set up the white posterboard background and all that good stuff.


I first took a few shots without the trans-green walls, but didn't like how those turned out. I thought I'd make a few other filter walls, in trans-red and trans-blue, and see which turned out best, but I really liked how the green made it look so I never bothered.


I've been thinking of doing a story about a salvage team roaming around a dim and deserted spaceship, which would require the proper mood lighting in relatively small interior spaces. This was kind of a test run for that.
