I really enjoyed working on this project, mainly because I did most of it from scratch. Well, at least this shot. Originally this was going to just be a still shot at the end of a commercial, but after I finished the scene, Ensure liked it so much that they wanted it to be an animated shot.

I had the idea for this after watching an episode of Stargate Universe. I really like the effect they have of the.. I'll just call it space wash, that flows over the ships force field.
