A director is looking to hire a team of concept designers, lighting, and look development artists for his upcoming sci-fi fantasy film (based in the dense forest, rivers, and unexplored terrains in New Zealand), that will be in production in conjunction with a game’s franchise.
The West coast happens to be my favorite part of the country as it resembles a prehistoric version of New Zealand, with its warm climate and being coated with Nikau palms. When ever I vist I feel as if I have traveled back in time.
My story resembles the Alien movie series were there is a singular apex predator creature, in which the main character must survive and avoid it.
My storyline is pretty basic, it is a standard Sci-fi survival story in which a man is cut of from his crew and crash lands on a lucious planet that resembles NZ westcoast environment. The Man notices at any sighting of any birds or mammels they flea in a rush. He uses the birds to locate and avoid the monsterous Tuatara. The Tuatara is quick and silent, similar to the raptors of Jurrasic World it is cunning and highly inteligent. The Tuatara also recognises the human as an intelligent species and decides to use the man for a game of sorts.
In hindsight things I think I did well was to stick to the brief keeping the NZ environment aswell as including the Tuatara, I did also stick to the sci-fi theme although if was to redo it I would put more work into developing the character and its design e.g costume design.
I also need to incorperate lighting more, if I had more time I would have made a Tuatara model and played around with the lighting like some of my concept sketches. I have also started playing around with the scans from Quixel they would have been fun to bring into it.
