I decided to split the environment up into two areas. The first being a study room, showing the character of the scientist through props and decor. This room then leads into the open conservatory which is where the work-shop and Time Machine are housed. The overall shape of the building is below, inspired by the large 19th Century greenhouses and conservatories on stately homes.
Below are some shots from the rendered Pre-viz, I'm still working on the camera-movements, trying to make them seem fluid and ironing out any awkward moves.
The machine has been pre-vized, but I'm still not completely happy with the design, when I produce it in full quality, I think a slight re-design will be in order.
Lastly, I've been working on the first prop, a Art Noveau-inspired 'Tiffany' Lamp. Still needs to be textured in full. I'll be pushing ahead with more production of props whilst finalising my pre-viz.
