Fleet Command takes fire from Planet P. The shimmering blue CG plasma blasts that rise from the planet's surface and the dozens of model spacecraft were animated and shot by Sony Pictures Imageworks.

These shots contain dozens of digital and model miniature layers. The models, built by Thunderstone, were shot and composited by Imageworks.

The massive crane shot that reveals the Rodger Young bridge. This shot is deceptively simple - the shot begins with Boss' 18' model miniature shot motion control (top), then the bridge portion dissolves to a CG model (middle), and then eventually revealing the live-action footage. Boss Film Studios built and shot the model, created and matchmoved the CG bridge, and POP Film composited all the elements.
