A Grand Opening...
27 November 2007 | by res_identSee all my reviews

This is a beautifully rendered tease for a movie I used to dream would be made a reality. For those of you that have read the Rama series — or in the least the first book, Rendezvous With Rama — this is a stunning piece of visualization! This short film chronicles the first humans that encounter an alien space-craft that has entered our solar system. What is revealed inside begins an adventure the likes of which mankind would never have imagined - and thus begins one of the most inspired and far-reaching adventures ever published.

I'm extremely impressed that this was done by a film student. The story, written by Arthur C. Clarke, has also inspired a PC adventure game published by Sierra in 1996 which garnered good reviews. The entire video can now be found (there are several CG ones, so be sure to check the film- maker's name) and then consider reading the first book in the series. All will be revealed.
