Escape From Planet Earth

*

I worked on this CG animated film at Rainmaker Studios in Vancouver, Canada a while ago. It is a story about a group of wacky aliens who are incarcerated in Area 51, and attempt to escape it.

Production Designer Barry Jackson pulled together a team of artists to create visual development for it. As usual the script changed radically over the course of designing the film. The original director was fired, mayhem ensued. Such is the drama of the entertainment industry. Escape From Planet Earth is in theaters now and not with the best reviews but as Barry put it, “It’s a great film if you are ten years old.”

I don’t think anything I designed for the film ended up in it, but here are some of the concepts I worked on.
