After yesterday’s post on Christian Pearce‘s work on District 9, here’s a small sample of his Elysium designs.
He was obviously involved up to a later stage in the concepting, as the thought that’s gone into the designs and the finish on them is great.
One of the things I love about Neill Blomkamp’s first two films is how natural the futuristic technology feels. Like the Alien films, it isn’t all glowing ports and polished white surfaces, it’s practical, industrial and as a result it’s incredibly real-feeling.
And it turns out that the way you make something feel real is to pretty much design it for real. The image showing the construction of a robot chassis is fantastically detailed, and I adore the instruction manual approach to the rocket launcher:
Bang for your buck
