Whether you are a concept artist, a modeller, a look developer, a compositing or even sound artist … there is a challenge for every specialist.

 

Concept Art

Join us to further develop the background of the story.
All techniques allowed / result format=image

Your picture will be used as a photo poping up in a display, as a news flash from earth.
By this Lt Schweiger will be remembered what the crew actually left behind on earth and what is at stake.

Create an artwork with any digital technique showing the drama on earth after the space shuttle left it.

What is life like in this dystopian future?

Think about the impact humanity’s unchained exploitation of nature has led to.

Submit a picture with 16/9 ratio, at least 1920x1080px big, PNG format.

Send the result by email to challenge@seedofhopeproject.com with title “SOH challenge / concept art / your name”

Modeling

Contribute to the dense sci-fi atmosphere by creating a huge robot featuring as an extra in the space ship’s hangar room.
This multifunctional room full of energy systems and high-tech is managed by a robot (maintenance, medical, military?).

Any 3D software / result format=3D file … C4D/OBJ/FBX

Think about what kind of robot technology a space agency like NASA could use in the near future in a zero-gravity environment.

This bot has of course to fit the design language of the movie; analyse the existing artwork and teaser to get a feeling for our environment.

Download the source scene here (not yet availaible).

Submit a mesh with basic textures apllied, so that we can easily set it up to fit our pipeline. C4D,OBJ and FBX are accepted.

Look development

Inspire us by taking our basic 3D scene of the space ship corridor and develop the visual style.

You will have to add textures, materials, lights and atmospheric elements.

Set up the scene, render and composite in your favorite application to show us your version of this corridor.

You are allowed to add small modelling details but the focus is to find the best look by carefully choosing your shading, lighting and composting.

Make it look realistic but in a photographically interesting way!

Compositing Challenge

Show us what can be achieved in compositing by using our render passes and create a high end look in your favorite tool.

Use all of our passes to build an atmospheric style by introducing depth of field, motion blur, vignetting, chromatic aberration, lens correction etc.

Don’t hesitate to push the awesomeness with atmospheric effects like fog, particles, lens flares etc if you feel the need!

Finally color grade the result in order to get the look you feel the shot should have in our movie.

Sounddesign

Help to define the sound design of our sci-fi universe.

Our near future user-interface in the provided shot requires unique sounds that do not come out of the can.

Apart from the UI don’t forget to add the atmosphere of the spaceship room and any other sound required.

Don’t add music, though.

Download the source footage here (not yet availaible).

Submit a mp3 sound file in stereo 48.000 kHz, 16bit, 192 kbit.
