Cool astronaut helmet built from a kids toy


This astronauts helmet used in the live action teaser trailer for Quantum Enigma started life as a very plain Halloween costume helmet. After a breakdown and rebuild with electronics and cameras, it might be ready for the Vacuum of space. The detail is out of this world along with everything else in QE.


Here you can see the transition from the toy helmet below into a full fledged NASA would be proud kind of helmet with two video cameras, eternal and internal lighting along with a cooling ventilation system.








Check back for more updates on the full build tech for Quantum Enigma.


Weathered and dirty just the way we like it.

Still composite image from the live action video book teaser


The use of precise blending techniques with a still image for the ship, green screen background, several videos and live action foreground. The props really look amazing. What is the old saying? "The devil is in the details."


We had to post a still from the live action teaser for Quantum Enigma, just to show the cool green screen integration and color correcting of the video. The final image is pretty stunning considering this was shot in a basement. Kudos to Ed Hanna editor and color corrector of Quantum Enigma.


This just goes to show you that anything is possible in movie magic. Imagination, art and perseverance with some skill thrown in.
