Notes: In this film, we demonstrate the power of a thoughtful gift, which transcends distance to create a deeper, more meaningful connection. “Space Station” tells the story of an astronaut who couldn’t be further away from her family during the holiday season. As weeks and months pass, she goes about her monotonous duties and her only contact with her family is on a little computer monitor. But when Christmas comes, her clever daughter surprises her with an endearing gift hidden inside a cardboard doll, called Sunny, which creates a delightful snowfall in space. The snowfall looks a lot like the gift itself, which is a snow globe depicting the family. The wonder of the gift touches Mom and creates an even deeper connection between her and her daughter—visually and emotionally. In “Space Station,”, we needed to achieve a level of technical achievement and craft that made the viewer believe they were watching a story that was really taking place in space as well as on Earth. So we created a full 3D Space Station exterior, a full CGI Earth, and elements aboard the Space Station to help deliver the zero gravity in space. But we needed to do so without overshadowing what really mattered in the story—the human story.
