Futurama In 3D

Happy new year!

One week into the new year and so I’m probably overdue for my first post.  We leave 2014 behind and welcome 2015 with open arms, not least because it promises to blur the already slightly fuzzy line between science fiction and reality even further.  We are living in an age of incredible technology and innovation, with glimpses of much more on the horizon.  But beyond this year, what lies in the distant future, in, say, the year 3000?

Those familiar with Futurama (can you believe it has been going for nearly 15 years!) will know that the year 3000 plays host to New New York and Alexy Zakharov has taken the 2D cartoon landscape that we know so well and spectacularly transformed it into 3D.

Incredible detail has been put into the entire cityscape, not to mention the complex design of the Planet Express ship.  Very impressive to say the least!

Using 3ds max, Nuke, Photoshop, and After Effects (plus I’m sure a few other clever bits), Alexy has brought the future a step closer by showing us what we can optimistically expect in 985 years or so.

And why not, after all Back to the Future correctly predicted the likes of self-tying Powerlaces and hoverboards, didn’t it!



2015 could be quite the year!
