The New Iron Sky Sneak Peek is Out – Come Visit The Moon Studio!

March 24th, 2011 by Kollektiivi

All of us in the Iron Sky team have been very busy with work since we got home from Australia. The post-production of the film is in full swing, the CGI team in Tampere is busy rendering Nazi UFOs, Timo and our editor Suresh are piecing together the movie, and our “making of” guy Janos is wrestling with the over 200 hours of behind the scenes materials from the shoot and the last year.

In spite of this we took the time to update Iron Sky Sneak Peek, and this month you are in for a real treat. We will visit our sound stage in Village Roadshow Studios, where we built the surface of the Moon. You’ll get to see different elements that went into shooting the Moon scenes, including the stunts, the costumes and of course our custom made Moon dust. So, head over to and check it out – and thank you for supporting Iron Sky!

A New Trailer is Coming

- Give Us Your Comments!

Last month we teased you that we are homing in for a big release, and we are almost there. You have been asking us for a new teaser for months, and soon all of you who are subscribed to Iron Sky Sneak Peek will get to see what we have been up to: a new Iron Sky trailer that’s aimed for promotional use! The trailer contains a lot of live actors and some awesome CGI, but the latter will be finished a bit later this spring.

Our plan is to open up and expand Iron Sky Sneak Peek a bit. What this means is that we’ll publish new material in there for the Sneak Peek users to screen and to comment on. The Sneak Peek subscribers will get a chance to be our test audience and voice their opinions about what certain parts of the film, trailers etc. will look or sound like when they are finished – starting with the promo trailer which we are working on currently and which we will publish in the Sneak Peek in the very near future!

Stay tuned and keep watching the skies!

D-Day -28: Analog storyboard work

October 20th, 2010 by Timo Vuorensola

I’ve been a bit sick most of the last week and also on Monday, so I wasn’t, unfortunately, able to do very interesting Director’s Diaries for the last few days. But fear not, they are still coming up – yesterday we were working with Mika on the storyboards, again, but this time doing a bit different work. We had our first official production schedule for the shoot, and we started to fit the shots per day to the schedule. We started out by chopping the storyboard and the schedule to small pieces with a real, heavy-weight analog cutter, then glueing the scheduled things on a black cardboard along with the appropriate storyboards, the re-organizing them in a bit more coherent way, thus forming the basis of the actual rhythm of each shooting day. There’s a bit more of that work still left to be done, but once it’s done, these black cardboards will follow us everywhere in the shootings.

I love it when some things still work the best with real analog devices – scissors, paper, glue and pen.
