The view at Proxima Centauri

This short video was modelled and rendered by myself under the direction of Dave Brody for the Magellan TV documentary: Other Earths: The Search For Habitable Planets

The terrain was built in Gaea, and the whole thing was put together in Lighwave3d.
If you know your constellations, you might notice significant differences in the sky!

I studied astronomy at University College London, but failed to get my degree. For many years pre-internet, I ran the bulletin board "Starbase 1", which is why you will frequently see me referring to myself as that! I was on the board of the IAAA. I operate exclusively in digital formats using many different software packages. Most often Lightwave 3d, Vue, Gaea, and Affinity Photo. I also enjoy oddball graphics packages like Xenodream, Amberlight, and others.

I'm particularly interested in the early Soviet space program, and I have served as a consultant on that subject.
