Intricate Interfaces for Sci-Fi Movies

Bradley "Gmunk" Munkowitz goes behind the scenes in creating ornate and futuristic interface graphics for the movie Oblivion

Look at this. This is just flat out beautiful. Not only that, but it has the very iceberg-y quality of something that someone spent hours and hours toiling over but that will only be seen for a few seconds at a time. As an added bonus (or curse?), you won’t be able to watch a sci-fi movie after this without paying very close attention to all the screens.

Watch the reel at the top of the page, click through the slideshows, and watch the interview with the director (and Gmunk) about their process. You get to see him nerd out over grids, I love it. Highlight: As intricate as the whole thing is, Gmunk still humbly refers to it as “just dots, lines, and circles, really”
