Philadelphia Desert

Joe Chapman has been working on 2D comps of the background in the Philadelphia Desert. 
Wow, I remember back in the day when Montserrat Mendez came up with the idea of the Philadelphia Desert. I think I vaguely recall thinking "How the heck are we going to do that?".
Well it looks to me like we're in Camden and the nuclear blasts took out the Delaware and the lower half of Jersey. Which is very cool. Hmm... running some calculations in my head I bet this is just about where the spaceship would have crash landed in Planet of the Apes.
That's Robin Kurtz' hand in the forground with the Queen of Mars on the left and me on the right. These are temp comps with different ideas of shadowing and background.
Red Giant has a post on using their water-simulator in Final Cut Pro.

Ah, my favorite part of page one, describing the Philadelphian Dessert, back then in my head i called it Newark.
