The Black Hole Fan Video

Excellent animation that catches the sprite of the scene where both space craft meet each other at the edge of “The Black Hole” it’s also great to see both my model the USS Palomino and Sean Kennedy’s USS Cygnus featured in another fan’s creative homage to a classic film, for all the original films faults, it remains a beautify filmed work and the Cygnus surely is the highlight of the film

I made the video around 2011. I added the title cards and original John Barry score the I the day. I’ve had trouble with codecs and uploading it.

The video is the opening space shots of Walt Disney’s the black Hole redone by me in CG.

I give special thanks to Sean Kennedy and Gerard Duffy. Great models thanks for making them available.

The Black Hole´s USS Palomino

The Black Hole´s USS Palomino


I first saw The Black Hole film by Disney was in one of the cinema houses in Dublin city centre and loved the film, and the floating robot Vincent was a character I think was a little more fun than either R2D2 or C3PO from Star Wars out a few years earlier and for me the plus reason was it could hover and move around, even carry crew persons across a wide space to save them from danger, a more useful robot to have in your corner, Vincent had the attitude of R2D2 and could talk like C3p0.

This was one of my earliest models and then the most difficult, and I draw your attention to the engine pods,  I found them the most difficult, but I did receive a lot of help from my good friend Tom, while not a Lightwave user gave me some solid advice… so many thanks to him… you can find this model hosted on both foundation3d and 3dgladiators to download if you’re a Lightwave user.
The USS Palomino created by Peter Ellenshaw who also designed the USS Cygnus, truly the star of the film.

All I ask (and most other modellers ask) is to receive proper credit in whatever rendering or animation they used in.
