The movie was shot using a regular dvx100a camera. All CGI were made using 3ds max 7. Edited in Vegas 6.0. Shot locations in Brasíla, Brazil. Sorry for any problem in the subtitles. The whole idea was to imagine a situation where the probe, that really carried a disc with imagens and sounds from our planet, would be found by and advanced civilization and also think about our role in this planet. If anyone what's to know about Voyager there is more information at the NASA site. So, what did you think about the movie?

Forgot to say that the name of the movie "Terra" means Earth in English.

Without being rude, i think the 3D visual aspect needs more time...

It felt like I was watching a videogame or something, I was wondering when I was actually going to see the DVX in action.
Just too much CGI, in my opinion and no story.
The opening shots were cool, but then, once that thing hovers above the ground, which looked completely fake(sorry), and went to the CGI sequences, it just totally lost me.
And having the entire thing as a voiceover AND subtitles definitely took me out of the film.
I don't exactly know what this was supposed to be.
Maybe you can enlighten me.
Anyway, keep making films, practice makes perfect!.

I do not know what to say to you, it's not an entertainment movie it's something else. I guess those who know what the probe is to science will get the idea. I hope people do not get upset just because of the subtitles for the entire world watches American movies with subtitles and nobody is complaining. I just had to place that much of CGI, it was part of the story and I could not film a small Voyager to later composition.

Interesting story. I saw that it was a "message" movie and I think you conveyed your point well. Regarding the subtitles; I have never been a fan but what are you supposed to do? I watched the first time through, pausing to read where it was moving too fast, then watched it again to take the whole thing in. I liked the fact that you took us on the Voyager's journey and aspired to reach higher. Your actress did a good job on her naration, too.

Thanks for your comments Blaine. The actress is actually my mother, she used to present a local show for kids long time ago.

good stuff fabio.
I agree that the first hovign thing looked poor.
but the CGs from there one wherne't bad. They resembled a NASA animation in a way, and that made it seem real to me, as that's what we ever see of the reality up there.
I liked your story. The subtitles didn't bother me (I'm used to them here in Finland, I think knowing how to read them helps.). It reased some interestign questions about our fate.
Despite the lack of real footage, I liked it the way it is.
