The last interplanetary rocket launched from this mountaintop facility in British Columbia's southern interior almost 40 years ago.
The year is 2060 - After a deadly plague decimated most life on earth, many of the wealthy elites secretly funded and used these facilities to evacuate the planet and find refuge among new settlements across the solar system.
Most of these locations were kept hidden from the public, however, after the severity of the global plague became apparent, news about these off-world launch sites quickly transformed from conspiracy-theory to fact.
Thousands flocked to these facilities, with hopes they would be granted survival among the colonies, only to be met with lethal resistance and ultimately doomed to their fate on mother Earth.
This image was created for a video tutorial, soon to be available on my store:
A demonstration in creating a post-apocalyptic environment, utilizing CG elements on top of a photographic background plate.
Elements from Turbosquid, Megascans, and kit-bash kits from Vitaly Bulgarov and Nick Govacko.
Photographic background panorama was shot by myself - also available to purchase from my store.
Scene was rendered in Clarisse iFX and composited in Nuke, with some final paint-over work done in Photoshop.
