Because I'm emulating Chance, I've been looking around on the webernet for pre-existing spaceship sets (because unlike Chance, I don't have any friends who just happen to have those kinds of things lying around). ;-) And in my journeys I've stumbled on some interesting things.
In Asheville, NC (which really is a lovely town) there's the movie Moon Europa which seems to be an art-house sci-fi pic. At least that's what I gather from the teaser trailer on the site.
They do a nice job with the early-70's all-white aesthetic. Packing Styrofoam has gotten me pretty far up 'till now. I'm sure it'll continue to provide repeatably molded goodness in set designs.
While looking at the site for Venus Rises (and they have some very nice-looking sets) I stumbled upon IllusionTV "on-demand sci-fi". This is a digital cable network which will offer Venus Rises as a series.
As a distribution channel that's kind of interesting. I wonder if it's actually possible to make any money at it though.
