Red Mars – the Movie
Now that I’ve made that 3d model of the Ares, and now that I have my own YouTube channel, the logical next step is to make an animation showing the arrival of the spacecraft in Mars orbit. The clip makes it clear how the spaceship rotates around its own axis to generate gravity. I stand in good company because James Cameron, director of Titanic and Avatar, among others, once had plans to adapt Red Mars to screen. That movie was, unfortunately, never made; for my own film there is now at least a 45 seconds trailer.
