ChildreΠ of the Dog Star

Over the course of it’s airing, Saturday mornings were delightfully punctuated by this eerie and seemingly malevolent device’s wishes to draw enough energy by [no spoilers] to make contact with its home/owners- I highly recommend watching the mini-TV series “Children of the Dog Star”, just for the fact its great B-quality Sci-Fi. See what you come away with- try and understand what it would have been like for an impressionable 7 year old like me.



I’m no 3D designer by trade, so I really have no idea what I am doing and that’s why I find it fun to do. Here are some of the stages of the model design as well as some clips of source material from which this device originates.



If you were lucky enough to see this when you were young, it would be fascinating to know if anything inspired you- if not, maybe now is the time to be?

I rarely allow comments on my pages, but in this instance I’ve made the exception: Please do!
