Star Trekkin' Across the universe.. by Robby-Robert
Star Trekkin' Across the universe..
Playing around with some old film elements, and a digital shot of the Amt Enterprise. The moon was actually a model borrowed from the Vancouver McMillan Bloedel Planetarium. Fibreglass, and pretty detailed, but it never quite looked like OUR moon, but not a bad one, generally speaking.

Narcissus reaches for home by Robby-Robert
Narcissus reaches for home
I don't know where the engines are supposed to feed from? Where is the fuel tanker sized storage for these boosters? Oh well, lots of thrust, not much boost time. I guess it was meant to get away from the immediate danger, and then float. However, there were fore engines for that. These were much larger, and obviously meant to barbeque unwanted pests.

Okay, I'll try to be brief, and non spoilery. I just saw Inferno, the new Dan Brown movie, directed by Ron Howard. The book had a plot which led the main protagonist through a maze of clues, historical paths, and the idea that a misguided genius was trying to kill half the world to save the other half. Good so far, and NOT a book I would have been interested in, since it IS true that we are heading towards an over-population nightmare. Needless to say, the ending is not so obvious, and says something I didn't expect, something powerful, and possibly unpopular. So, the movie is basically word for word for the book, and I was mesmerised at how I felt like they had it right, amazing! As the movie nears the end, I felt confident they had gotten it right. Wrong. Wrong....... Oh man, wrong!
Just before the final revelation, I'm sitting there, waiting for the payoff, and wondering how many religious organisations are going to lose their shit, and,........ titles.
What? Dan Brown and Ron Howard are chicken shits. They lost their nerve, or something. Maybe they had too much controversy with his first book, The DaVinci code, and wanted a smoother release. I don't know, just guessing, but they tore the heart of the book out, and bastardised it. Can't believe how meaningless the whole story became. Just another stupid action film. Oh well.

A tree hugging, artistic, astronaut wannabe. Hate Corporations, and Extreme Right wing politics. (sorry! can't please everyone!) I think the planet is beyond saving at this point, but we gotta keep trying anyway. And by that, I mean, the planet will survive just fine without us, but most of the life as we know it will probably go extinct with us. I go between hoping the economy will collapse, so we stop developing everything within our field of view, and hoping we conquer space, so we can keep going, long enough to grow the hell up!


Live long, and prosper!

Thanks! There's always something brewing. Right now, I'm building the polar lights 1/350th scale Enterprise Refit. It's humongous.
After I purchase the lighting kits, and whatever I build from scratch, it'll be the star attraction for a while!

High praise! 
Over the years, I have been extremely lucky to live in a place with so much beauty. A small percentage of what I've shot has turned out okay!
I still wince at what I've shot, and hope the faults and errors in my work are not too noticeable.
Anyways, I'll try my best to keep developing (tiny photographic pun), hopefully, as I get older, things won't dry up, inspiration wise.
LLAP!
Robert.

Developing...huh, huh, I get it.
I am awed by your gallery, not just the photos,
the paintings, drawings, miniature work, is there 
anything you can't do? Your range of talent is really
impressive. I am lime green with envy.

Uhmm, well there's always my complete deficit of powers regarding women, but we'll leave that out for now, as I'm approaching the airlock of life, rather than the bird of youth!
I used to have a friend, we grew up together, and learned all we could about photography, and visual effects. We even had a partnership and did some of the work I've posted here, but eventually, he left for Toronto, and I just couldn't uproot my life. He went on to greener pastures, and even won a Canadian Gemini award for the effects work on the tv movie of the week, "Arrow", about the Canadian attempt to manufacture the world's best fighter/recon aircraft. Anyways, I've  always felt a little bit of envy for what he achieved, but also happiness for him. 
However, almost all of the effects work these days is cgi, (Interstellar notwithstanding) and it just leaves me cold, not for what it can accomplish, but the process. It just doesn't interest me. I love the hand made crap that makes people go "holy cow".
So, yeah! Thanks!
