1.Author's comments

The production took almost one year.
I tried to make real scenes for launching a rocket.
Almost all scenes produced with CGI
There were many interesting trials.
I made some computer graphics models, an air cargo ship, a launch pad,
refining machine. I enjoyed it.
During the production, I cared very much about virtual camera operations.

Postscript (Sept., 11, 2015) : effect sound lost during format. Currently, in the cause investigation.

2. Production notes.
