First Look: Blood and Chrome

Preliminary concept art for Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome has been revealed. Via, Blastr, HDR, io9, and Screenrant.

In a brief interview with the Galactica Sitrep, Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome writer and executive producer Michael Taylor says about the artwork:

Those pics were just the first of the many concept art sketches we've been creating. They don't necessarily reflect any particular incidents in the script; as "concept" drawings they're helping us flesh out the new world of Blood & Chrome. And it is a new world, one that owes much to the BSG series of the past but at the same time uses CGI to open up that world in ways that we hope fans will find fresh and exciting.

As for the show's status, SyFy has officially green-lit a two-hour pilot, and we have begun pre-production, with filming expected to begin at the end of January, or very shortly thereafter. This is the fun part for me: seeing the script take tangible shape (or "virtually tangible" shape, since practically all of the pilot will be shot on green screen) as our director (Jonas Pate), DP (Lukas Ettlin), VFX supervisor (Gary Hutzel) and a host of artists -- and of course the cast that we'll soon be gathering -- bring it to life.

I'm very curious how this prequel will work out. Right now I have high hopes for it. When filming begins in January/February, I believe the roles have already been casted. What I really hope for is, that Bear McCreary will score this BSG spin-off also. No news about that on his blog.
