After more than a school year of work on mostly story which seems to never stop changing, design, modeling and rigging, Danger Planet had little to stand on in terms of getting finished. With little animation and layout done I knew staying after graduation would be Danger Planet's last hope.

In a little over two months Danny Cooper and I (Justin Burks) turned the animation lab into our home. 3 minutes and 30 seconds of animation, lighting, rendering, compositing and music were all completed to finish.

Now that its done go and watch it! Enjoy

Danger Planet

During a routine scan on a distant planet, a young space scout finds romance with a female pilot. But when peril strikes the two star-crossed explorers, he must face what lurks in the darkness of the planet to rescue the girl.

Danger Planet is an animated short created by students at Southern Adventist University in Tennessee. This 4 minute student animation was finished primarily in a summer after over a year of preproduction.
