What like Star Wars, Star Trek and Doctor who did were successful and heavily praised and admired for ,for decades ?
Update on Red Dwarf X visual effects.
3 February, 2012
You may have seen a fair amount of buzz about this on Twitter already this week, but we know that you won't believe anything's really true until you see it here on reddwarf.co.uk. So in an announcement that we suspect is going to make a lot of fans very happy, we can now confirm: Red Dwarf X will feature brand new model shots.
A bit of history, for those of you who aren't already automatically jumping for joy upon seeing those words in black and white. The "in space" sequences across the entirety of the first six series were accomplished by filming beautifully detailed miniature models of Red Dwarf, Starbug and a vast array of guest ships. Constructed by Peter Wragg's visual effects team, these models (as seen above) helped give the series a look and feel far beyond its budget.
In the seventh and eighth series, however, although model sequences were still present, they were only a supplement to the now-predominant CGI animation created by Chris Veale. A huge model of the redesigned Red Dwarf ship was built for the Remastered video release in 1997, but was rendered in CGI for its use both in those episodes and Series VIII rather than being directly shot on camera. In Back to Earth, meanwhile, time and budget considerations meant that it was impractical to use models for the brief establishing shot of the ship – and so a new CGI version of a now-shortened design was used.
For Series X, however, the decision has been made to take the visual effects back towards their roots – and so, as part of the final week of pickup shooting at Shepperton Studios, a special area has been given over to the second unit, in order that they can shoot space-bound sequences featuring actual, tangible ship miniatures. Other visual effects methods will of course be used in the series as and when appropriate – but the ships themselves will be models.
can i be first to say "Get in"
The Actors look tad older but still have it and in grand scheme of things it truly does not matter they have gone back to there roots and it shows it is not trying to reinvent a wheel here just be what it is
I most enjoyed the dialog and the phyco android with usb slot this was witty original and well played
The new costume is nice and listers i thought was a old one but its new i loved the sets and the car seats ,is this really on a flat sound stage floor ? Looks epic so many levels has to be carefully used nice to see it done so on the flat and old skool
