Spaceplane: A Story of Discovery

Working alongside my brother, we created this CGI animation as a tribute to the Space Shuttle Discovery. We used a model created from a 3D scan of the real orbiter, currently residing at The Smithsonian musem. We lit, animated, and composited various scenes of the orbiter performing a variety of on-orbit operations, including the rendezvous pitch manoeuvre, and atmospheric re-entry.

We also created the music and sound design, blended with real NASA commentary and radio transmissions to create an authentic feel.
