This is just an establishing shot from a short film I'm working on.

Any feedback is appreciated:

The lighting effect makes them look small, those arcs would be like 10 meters in diameter, even bigger perhaps, so that effect has to be way, way smaller, like in thinner. Add lots of lighting on the hull from them and glows, to emphasize the effect, instead of scale.

And the ships are too static, you need to ass some movement, else it looks fakeish.

How is this scene lit?

Hey cool I hadn't looked at it like that in terms of the electricity scale making the ship look smaller. I'm going to tweak it and try that direction.

Any video reference you can think of from any movie that might help give a better visual?

Also I just have two lights placed behind the ship closest to the camera and they are off screen in the top left corner about where the sun appears in the last couple of seconds. It's just an ambient light the same color as the sky in the background and a parallel light somewhat the color of the sun.
