About project

My name is Konstantin Guryanov. I am working on animation movie about the first human spaceflight by Yuri Gagarin. I intend to make visually rich movie in which this spaceflight will be shown closely and in high detail. There were a lot of things during Yuri Gagarin’s spaceflight picture of which worth а thousand words. I also want to make visual effects as good as I possibly can in reasonable time.

Work on this project is on for a long time and a lot of things is already done. High realism modeling and surfacing requires large amounts of time and labor especially for totally self-educated 3d artist as I am. This site is about my project, how I’ve done things already done and things yet to do. Despite such project is forcing to concentrate on visual part of the story, I discovered for myself a lot about the first human spaceflight as a engineering achievement and heroic labor feat of many outstanding people.

Content of this site is intended for a general audience and for space history enthusiasts as well. Moreover I’ll share some computer graphics techniques I’m using during this project.

Main goal of my project is creation of short animation film for free online access via popular video services and for direct download. Also there will be a lot of static images, and may be some VR spherical panoramas and some other interactive content.
