Many moons ago now I was involved with a SF Project called Ultra Guardians, it was the creation of Cardiff based Neville Buchanan. The project originally was going to be called Omni Force but changed during production of the first pilot episode.I say first pilot episode because there were two.
The first combined a mixture of Stop Motion Animation and miniatures with CGI,it featured the voice talents of Victor Spinetti and Ian Ogilvy. This pilot helped find interest in the creation of a TV series.
Ultra Guardians was to be a 26 part childrens TV show with episodes running at 26 minutes in length. It was decided that the whole show was to be CGI, the animation etc... was being handled by a company in South Korea called 'Cyper Entertainment Inc'
The job I was asked to do was to help design ships and props for the show,I would mock up a ship using a combination of Studio Max and Vue d'Esprit and my grey renders would be sent across to South Korea were they would be built and animated in Maya. If you look at the picture attached you can see my grey model and some final grabs from the actual show. So Ultra Guardians went to a second pilot episode, and then due to reasons beyond a lot of peoples control the whole project went belly up. Designs had been started by myself and co-designer Pete Gough for the 2nd and 3rd episodes but sadly by this time the problems with the production had already begun.
Neville the creator of the show currently has Cyclone in early production,a show which also features futuristic craft and fantastic worlds.
