Guys who brought us Star Wreck (I-)IV - In The Pirkinning
are now startin to make their newest feature-length motion picture, IRON SKY:As World War II comes to an end in 1945, German scientists make a breaktrough in anti-gravity research. Nazi spaceships are sent to the dark side of the Moon to found the military base Schwarze Sonne (Black Sun). Their plan is to build a powerful fleet and return to conquer Earth. The film is set in the year 2018 when their descendants finally return.
...in short: it's about Nazis in space.
Star Wreck IV was their their little hobby, Iron Sky is going to be their job. Real script by award-winning Finnish author Johanna Sinisalo, professional(?) actors ja much more resources. So this shoud be a master piece.

LATEST NEWS LETTER:
Dear Wreckers & Iron Sky people, we need your help! One of the biggest challenges in the production of the Iron Sky demo hasbeen creating the Nazi Moonbase. Although we've had some pretty wonderfulsubmissions by great artists from all over the world, we also want youideas. The Nazi Moon Base itself is pretty much ready (although texturing anddetailing are still a work in progress), but we need you to help us withdesigning the surrounding of the base. Everything from a brief ideadescription to a full 3D model are appreciated! This task is open until 30 November 2007.
DESCRIPTION OF THE TASK
Design elements for the environment surrounding the Nazi Moon Base. Submityour ideas and textual descriptions to the forum: http://forum.starwreck.com/viewtopic.php?p=42771
; pictures can besubmitted either there or directly to us via email.
The Schwarze Sonne, the secret Nazi stronghold located on the Far Side ofthe Moon, is a huge complex built to house thousands of Nazis and their warmachinery. The central structure is the fortress built in the shape of aswastika. Surrounding the main construction, many smaller elements have been built tosupport the everyday lives of the Nazis and the preparation of their returnto the Earth. The technology is pretty much 40's style, since technologically the Nazishave not been developing much since they came to the Moon. But they've hadplenty of time to build big, strong elements, tools, vehicles and weapons.You may think of this as a crude steampunkish world, but please keep atouch of realism to your designs. The fortress is located in a shadowy crater, about 2 kilometres across, andthe main building is about 1.2 kilometres in diameter, making it abouttwice the size of the Pentagon. Around it can be pretty much anything, frombarracks and construction platforms to whatever you can come up with - youhave the freedom to invent anything. Use your imagination!
SUBMITTING IDEAS / PICTURES / 3D MODELS
We accept anything from short idea descriptions to detailed documentations,from raw, hand-drawn sketches to detailed 3D models. We accept the most common 3D model formats. Please note, the finalresolution of the demo will be 1920x817 so detail level must be quite high. Material can be posted to this forum by replying to this thread, or bysending them to our email address at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Ultimately, we make the decision on what elements we use in the demo.
COPYRIGHTS & CONTACTING
All the rights to the material submitted must be in the possession of thecontributor. The contributor must allow the worldwide, royalty freecommercial use of the material in the production of the film "Iron Sky",and other material related to it (mainly: the demo and promotionalmaterial).
Here you can find some reference material to help you understand the scaleand form of the surrounding area and the fortress. You may download theseand start working on them, or just use them as a reference - whatever suitsyour methods best. Nazi Moon Base overview http://www.ironsky.net/images/fortress_preview.jpg
This is a draft render of the scene. The camera angle & picture framing arequite close to the final. Pentagon embed http://www.ironsky.net/images/fortress_ ... ntagon.jpg
To understand the scale of the fortress, here's a quick mockup of thesurroundings of the Pentagon. Other images for reference can be found here: http://www.ironsky.net/gallery.php WHY TO DO THIS?
We like to believe that the community can be an active producer of qualitycontent, and would like to use this as a test platform for the idea itself.Your help will be crucial and your participation highly appreciated! If you produce something that can be utilised, your name will be mentioned,of course, in the thanks. If you produce art that can be used to create a3D model, you'll be credited as a 'preproduction artist'. If you produce amodel fully usable in this process, you'll get the title of 'modeller'. Andnaturally, you still hold the moral rights to the material, just as long asyou grant us the rights to use it in Iron Sky.
& the rest of the Iron Sky production team
