Back in 2011 I worked on this very special project. This still holds a very special place among the projects I have worked on over the years.
Lars has a strong vision and the shots have a unique style. The work was very demanding but very creative.
I was responsible for the look and setup of the planet. It is mainly a nuke/3dsMax setup with a mix of textures and projections. Some parts like the destruction of earth were partly done in 3DsMax with thinking particles.
I worked closely with concept artist/mattepainter Sven Sauer during the preproduction phase. He has some more making of pictures in his portfolio. https://www.artstation.com/artwork/04Yo4
