Ok now I know this doesn't look much like a corridor yet, Hazel over at Sun Gate Films who's in charge of set decoration has started raiding shops like IKEA for objects to help dress the spacecraft interiors etc... She's sent me a selection of stills of things she's already bought in bulk, the aim being that I can recreate these objects in CG so when I'm doing my work I can incorporate these into the designs. Above is one of the objects that I've built which is a lid off a storage box 13 x 9 inches. I'm planning on adding these to the final corridor design and some of the other sets that are being built for the spaceship interior, they'll make great panel details.
The picture of the lid I've rendered for fun in Blue Plastic like the actual box but once on the set these will be all sprayed the uniform cream/light brown colour like my previous concept work.
IKEA was used heavily by the set builders on Babylon 5 for set decoration, they do have some very interesting light fittings. Also on her travels Hazel has uncovered some boxes in storage near the Bavaria Film studios which she says has set dressing used on the 1985 film Enemy Mine directed by Wolfgang Peterson. I mentioned to her that Galaxy of Terror had what appeared to be some sort of food storage cartons on the walls of the spaceship, the orange detail at head height, from what I heard these were from McDonalds, they don't look too bad on the set, also these sets have a similar feel to those of the LV-426 Colony in Aliens, funnily Aliens director James Cameron was a Unit Director and FX man on Galaxy of Terror.
Wikipedia says: Most of the sets of the science fiction series Babylon 5 contained IKEA components. One reason for this was to reduce the cost of set construction; Babylon 5's producers were proud of always filming episodes on time and under budget.
