"Space" Music

When Little Bear Kid starts daydreaming about space travel, I wanted the music to go to a really “spacey” place. When I think of space music, I always go back to one of my favorite scifi movies the 1956 classic “Forbidden Planet”:

This was one of the first ALL electronic soundtrack in any film. Now they used a Theremin to get that sound, but I can’t play or even find one, but I did my best to try and imitate it’s long and sweeping sound…

"Space" Color

This short was a challenge. I set up pretty strict rules for myself when making them, and one of the rules is no gradients. Well, I already broke that rule earlier in the series, and I thought since this one scene was about “other worldly” places, it would be ok to do the same. I think it was the right call:

"Space" Storyboard

This one was so much fun! I love drawing space stuff, planets, stars, and yes, even space gas. I kinda boarded myself into a corner there though, I had a hard time figuring out a good way to get this kind of look in flash…

"Space" Script

This is an idea that I’ve been wanted to do for a while. I just couldn’t figure out why I was fascinated with space stuff to begin with. I stumped for months. Then when I went back to revisit it, I realized that was the exact angle I needed, I didn’t even remember why, it just was, and the day-dreaming followed…

Here’s the script in it’s entirety:

I don’t know where it came from
-space shuttle toy

or why me
-lego space set

I knew I knew I loved all things space related.
-checking out space book

-laying there looking up next to book

I would just wanted to go
-x-diss to spacesuit

to see new places
-x-diss off BG to space

new worlds
-on weird planet

new galaxies
-look up

I still remember the moment I realized how large the universe was
-out wider

and how small we were

so unimportant

We should never forget that.
