Default Video test of my Galactica bridge...

Here is a visual pan and slight tour of the bridge of my Galactica. This is generally a demo, so yes, there are a few little visual hiccups here and there...LOL! But, I think this turned out alright. Most of the bridge created in Blender, as is the ship itself. Some of the control consoles are iClone content.

Most kind, my friends, thank you.
I am hoping to start actual story shooting very, very soon.

Here is a redux of the Bridge Activity shot. I've dimmed the ambient lighting a little, and gave the monitors and scanner screens a bit more glow. Added light effects to the steps. Added a couple of new shots and angles. Also dropped in some dialogue so the scene doesn't seem so sparse. And on the character who is doing a scan of a moon, I added a slight video screen reflection to his face....ala ALIEN or CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND. Hope ya' like.

I have never seen the original BATTLESTAR GALACTICA. Is this what the bridge set looked like on that show? If so, they must've had a huge budget!

Hi, Admiral.
They had a good budget for their pilot movie (the 3 hour premiere). The episodes afterward were just a reuse of sets, and lots of stock footage for their space battles.

I think my bridge might be just a little bit bigger than the one they had, but it is laid out pretty much like the one on the original show.
