I had the opportunity to do a great film project at my son's kindergarten.
They group of my son was doing a space related science project week two months ago and after that I suggested to make a short movie with the kids.
With support of the kindergarten teacher the kids prepared astronauts space helmets and suits, building the rocket, a launch tower and they created a script incl. 8 scenes.
Finally we all had an extraordinary day at the Kindergarten filming in front of the green screen. The kids were (of course) the astronauts and the kindergarten teacher and myself were acting as "Mission Control".
We did the filming for around 3 hours and it was really fun for all of us - specially for the 5-6 years old kids.
Here are some pictures of the set & Hitfilm VFX. The landscape renderings were done in VUE.
The project is close of being 100% done. There are still some tasks left e.g. color grading and the SFX as well. But for sure we will have a cinema event in the kindergarten asap.
