In this clip, you can see the view from one of the cameras inside the rig. In the first half of the film you can see the interior of the glass tank slowly misting up.

Now that I have the material it's time to compose the final outcome.

Caitlin Smyth of Chelsea Space has chosen to mock me by taking the graphic from my recent show teaser and adding it to looky likey image of other bearded greats.
