Making this animation was great fun for me :) It is mine first so big animation. It was made in Discreet
3D Studio Max v5, textures in Adobe Photoshop v7 and video and sound montage in Adobe Premiere v7.
I was always big fan of George Lucas' Star Wars, since I saw it first time when i was 6 years old. I like story and design of this great world. I always knew that I will make something in Star Wars world, that was only the matter of time...
The idea for this animation was born when I was taking shower (yeah, shower, i got many ideas there ;). When I finished shower, I took pencil and drawn very simple storyboard on paper, you can see it below.
Same day what I drawn storyboard, I start making 1st works in 3D Studio and Adobe Photoshop... I made one of my favourite Star Wars starship - ISD (Imperial Star Destroyer), Borg Cube and this long, stupid ship from first scene. Next 2-3 days was making all models and after I finished it, I started the longest process - animating (yeeaaaaaah, vader is moving ;) haha, I was very happy to see this) and rendering scenes, and on the end add music, sounds and made final montage in Adobe Premier. Whole work was almost like 24h everyday in 8-9 days.
Below you can see few early and behind the scenes screenshots:
