Eden FX Creates Effects for Space Shuttle Atlantis Attraction
Santa Monica, CA -- Visual effects company Eden FX created 26 minutes of original content currently on display at the newly opened (June 29th) Space Shuttle Atlantis attraction at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Cape Canaveral, Florida. Eden’s client for this project was Mousetrappe.
Mousetrappe was charged with producing a three-act show, which is presented to visitors to the Space Shuttle Atlantis exhibit. Eden FX was retained by Mousetrappe in December, 2012, to create and produce over 26 minutes of digital sequences which are interwoven among live action within the films presented at the site.
For Act One, the preshow, Eden provided digital set extensions to depict the original warehouse in which the shuttle was first conceived. Eden also produced 16 long digital sequences seen within Act Two in the main theater, which present the history and overall story of the Space Shuttle program. Act Three is shown to visitors on an enormous 120’ x 20’ LED screen, where 11 minutes of Eden generated animation depicts various space technologies flying high above the Earth.
Eden’s digital presentations include the Space Shuttle Atlantis itself, an Extra Vehicular Activity (EVA) Suit, the International Space Station, the Hubble Space Telescope, an Earth model, Hubble footage, and various other space-themed images.
“This was a very exciting project for us,” said John Gross, Eden FX Creative Director/Founder. “Eden has a long history of creating CG space imagery for both science fiction shows and documentaries, but this project was particularly thrilling given the historical significance of Atlantis. We’re really proud of our accomplishments on this six-month long project.”
“Having the opportunity to create and produce the films for Space Shuttle Atlantis was truly significant for our team here at Mousetrappe -- an honor. We are really proud of the final results and Eden FX was a major contributor to that effort,” commented Daren Ulmer, Mousetrappe’s President and Chief Creative.
