The NASA Art Contest Short Film Winner: “Moonshot”

Some of you may remember watching the commercial above, featuring Transformers’ Optimus Prime, used to promote a short film contest sponsored by NASA. Well, below you can watch the winning short film by 17-year-old artist Dalton Mills. Moonshot is his first attempt at the medium and given the results, I would say he has a successful future ahead. To create the two-minute video, Mills used Blender, a freeware computer program that allowed him to create in 3-D and improve his own artistic skills. He started with a cube and a lamp on the computer screen and continued to move objects and add spheres and cones until the animation was formed. The process took about 30 hours to complete. Watch the clip below. Enjoy!
